Waiting on Wednesday (#6)

Wednesday, June 1, 2011

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, where we have the chance to share what upcoming releases we are on the edge of our seats in anticipation for.

Well this past week I just finished reading Matched by Ally Condie so now I am excited for Crossed which is the sequel to Matched.  Here is the description from goodreads for the second book:   
In search of a future that may not exist and faced with the decision of who to share it with, Cassia journeys to the Outer Provinces in pursuit of Ky - taken by the Society to his certain death - only to find that he has escaped, leaving a series of clues in his wake.
Cassia's quest leads her to question much of what she holds dear, even as she finds glimmers of a different life across the border. But as Cassia nears resolve and certainty about her future with Ky, an invitation for rebellion, an unexpected betrayal, and a surprise visit from Xander - who may hold the key to the uprising and, still, to Cassia's heart - change the game once again. Nothing is as expected on the edge of Society, where crosses and double crosses make the path more twisted than ever.

I love the art work on this book too.  I really think it is a neat idea and it makes me wonder what the third book's cover will look like?  I thought I would put the covers next to each other to compare. What do you think of the art? What is on your waiting for Wednesday?  Leave your link so I can stop by and look!!



  1. Oh, I love Matched! Too long to wait for Crossed, but so excited! Great pick :P
