Waiting on Wednesday- Under the Never Sky

Waiting On Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Author: Veronica Rossi
Release Date: February 7th 2012

Synopsis from Goodreads: Exiled from her home, the enclosed city of Reverie, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland—nicknamed The Death Shop—are slim. If the cannibals don’t get her, the violent, electrified energy storms eventually will. In this dystopia, even the very air she breathes could kill her. Then Aria meets an Outsider named Perry. He’s wild, dangerous—a savage. He’s also her only hope.

Perry needs Aria, too. She alone holds the key to his redemption. And their unlikely alliance will determine the fate of all who live under the never sky.

Debut author Veronica Rossi is accumulating fans from all over the globe—the book has already sold to more than twenty countries. It’s not surprising that foreign rights for this title have been flying off the shelf. It’s a tantalizing romance in any language.

Because I am a weird freak, I would like to point out that I enjoy reading books about cannibals. Ok, maybe enjoy is not the best word for it, actually it is probably the absolute worst word for it but I find the whole world and idea of cannibalism in FICTION of course just interesting. Its sort like reading about serial killers. It is hard and annoying and most of the time just plain disturbing to read about them, yet some part of it is intriguing trying to find out what goes in on in their minds. I know this is one I am going to be grabbing on its release date. And its is dystopia so it is bound to be amazing!!!

Monday's Question of the Day!: YA Pet Peeves!

What is your #1 YA book pet peeve?

So I have a post coming up about this very subject that was loads of fun to write. Not really on pet peeves but more of stuff I feel have become hackneyed in the YA genre. This is more along the line on what annoys you about YA books. I know I know, it is tearing at your heart right now to have to search through your beloved genre for a flaw, but I think we all have one. But for the sake of anticipation of my upcoming post, I will just give a very very small one; and that is that NO ONE EVER HAS ANY HOMEWORK. Yes I know, petty as it is, it still irks me. I mean I am a senior in high school and with college apps, calculus, five other classes, and all the other stuff school thrust upon high schoolers, I find it so weird that all these teens have the time to go on week long expeditions and hang out and go on dates every single day of the school year, when most of us are lucky if we have an extra minute to breath now-a-days. And the fact that everyone's parents is so lax about everything. I mean when has it been that easy to just sneak out every night for a midnight rendezvous in the woods, or drive across your state on a weekday for some reason and your parents don't even mind. Anyone else ever annoyed by, okay, but anyway these aren't my top YA pet peeves but they're definitely up there!

What are one of you guy's YA pet peeves?!!

Waiting on Wednesday- Cinder

Waiting On Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Author: Marissa Meyer
Release Date: January 13th 2012
Science Fiction

Synopsis from Goodreads: Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, a ruthless lunar people watch, waiting to make their move. No one knows that Earth’s fate hinges on one girl. . . . Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She’s a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s illness. But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai’s, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle, and a forbidden attraction. Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her world’s future. In this thrilling debut young adult novel, the first of a quartet, Marissa Meyer introduces readers to an unforgettable heroine and a masterfully crafted new world that’s enthralling.

 YES! That's all I can say! My ALL TIME favorite genre in existence is Science Fiction. Not only for books but for tv, movies, everything, but sci-fi books really hold a special place in my heart and on my shelf. But they are SO rare to say the least in YA. And this book is the epitome of what I was really looking for. I mean really, cyborgs! When was the last time you read anything about Cyborgs, and Lunar people! Everything about this book sounds like it is going to be so interesting and futuristic and everything that I love about the sci-fi!!! This is definitely my kind of book!
