Waiting on Wednesday (4)


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by the awesome Jill at Breaking the Spinewhere we all feature upcoming books we're eagerly anticipating.

This week I’m waiting on...





Crossed by Ally Condie

Hardcover, 384 pages

Expected publication: November 1st 2011 by Dutton Juvenile

Blurb (from Goodreads):

"The hotly awaited second book in the dystopian Matched trilogy.

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."


Why I want to read this book:

After reading Matched by Ally Condie, I can say with complete certainty that this is the most anticipated sequel of the year for my mother and I. Cassia's and Ky's starcrossed romance has left us spellbound and practically attacking the mailman to see if our copy has arrived in the mail, in the hopes that the release date has been moved forward. *sigh* If only...

What are you waiting on this week?

This is a beautiful cover. The first book is very good. I heard good things about the series' going to rock. Hope you like the book!

I have Matched sitting here on my shelf but I haven't had the chance to get to it yet. A lot of people seem to love it and I've been dying to read it so hopefully I will get to it soon.

I have read Matched earlier this year and I'm very much looking forward to find out what will happen now in this world. :)

Great pick,

You are definitely not alone wanting to read this one. Matched was a hot commodity when it came out and now like everyone else I am wanting to see where Crossed takes us next. Great pick!

Great choice! I've yet to read Matched but I'm determined to get it in the next week so I can read it before this comes out.

Hi peeps! Thanks so much for visiting my post and commenting:) I'm glad that most of you are also excited for this release.

@Books4Juliet and Books for all Seasons- I agree- the cover is truly amazing! If for no other reason, I'd buy it just for the cover *wink*

@Kathy, Brittani, Giselle, Demijel- You guys should definitely read it before Crossed releases:)

@Demijel- I understand being iffy about reading it. The first half was really slow and all the poetry stuff just wasn't for me, so I thought I'd be giving it a bad review. However, things picked up pace towards the end and gave me so much to look forward to so it's possible it may not be for you. It's still worth giving a try, though:)
