"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating!
This week I am excited for...
In a city where humans and Darklings are now separated by a high wall and tensions between the two races still simmer after a terrible war, sixteen-year-olds Ash Fisher, a half-blood Darkling, and Natalie Buchanan, a human and the daughter of the Emissary, meet and do the unthinkable—they fall in love. Bonded by a mysterious connection that causes Ash’s long-dormant heart to beat, Ash and Natalie first deny and then struggle to fight their forbidden feelings for each other, knowing if they’re caught, they’ll be executed—but their feelings are too strong.
When Ash and Natalie then find themselves at the center of a deadly conspiracy that threatens to pull the humans and Darklings back into war, they must make hard choices that could result in both their deaths. (From Goodreads)It seems to be a trend, here on Reading-AndCoffee, that my "Waiting On" Wednesday picks are books that many bloggers have already read. I'm trying to avoid reviews of Black City right now, but what I have read is encouraging.
One, this cover is ah-may-zing! It's gorgeous, and instantly grabs your attention. It really reminded me of the Divergent cover, at first. Two, the movie rights were sold this week. I'll hold my opinion on this until I've read the book. Three, it just sounds great, like a post-apocalyptic Romeo and Juliet story. Y'all know I love action in books, and I'm not going to complain about a human-vampire war Black City is set for release on November 13th, 2012, and I'm getting anxious to give it a read!
If you have been lucky enough to read Black City, what did you think? If not, are you as excited as I am?
Much love, Samantha
