Waiting on Wednesday (51)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that allows bloggers to share which books we are most anticipating.
This week I am waiting on Perfect Ruin by Lauren DeStefano (10/1/13):

Description on Goodreads:
On Internment, the floating island in the clouds where 16-year-old Morgan Stockhour lives, getting too close to the edge can lead to madness. Even though Morgan's older brother, Lex, was a Jumper, Morgan vows never to end up like him. She tries her best not to mind that her life is orderly and boring, and if she ever wonders about the ground, and why it is forbidden, she takes solace in best friend Pen and her betrothed, Basil.

Then a murder, the first in a generation, rocks the city. With whispers swirling and fear on the wind, Morgan can no longer stop herself from investigating, especially when she meets Judas. He is the boy being blamed for the murder — betrothed to the victim — but Morgan is convinced of his innocence. Secrets lay at the heart of Internment, but nothing can prepare Morgan for what she will find — or who she will lose.
Why I’m Waiting
I loved this author’s other series! I’m not sure why I haven’t read/heard more about her new series. The description promises a new dark, romantic dystopia and I’m all for it. The idea of a floating island dystopia sounds super interesting. And while a lot of it sounds kind of familiar (plot-wise), I know anything this author writes will have to be at least somewhat different. Also, I’m loving the cover. She gets such pretty covers.

What are you waiting on this week?
