Waiting on Wednesday (54)

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 Uninvited by Sophie Jordan (1/28/14):
Description on Goodreads:
The Scarlet Letter meets Minority Report in bestselling author Sophie Jordan's chilling new novel about a teenage girl who is ostracized when her genetic test proves she's destined to become a murderer.

When Davy Hamilton's tests come back positive for Homicidal Tendency Syndrome (HTS)-aka the kill gene-she loses everything. Her boyfriend ditches her, her parents are scared of her, and she can forget about her bright future at Juilliard. Davy doesn't feel any different, but genes don't lie. One day she will kill someone.

Only Sean, a fellow HTS carrier, can relate to her new life. Davy wants to trust him; maybe he's not as dangerous as he seems. Or maybe Davy is just as deadly.

The first in a two-book series, Uninvited tackles intriguing questions about free will, identity, and human nature. Steeped in New York Times bestselling author Sophie Jordan's trademark mix of gripping action and breathless romance, this suspenseful tale is perfect for fans of James Patterson, Michelle Hodkin, and Lisa McMann.
Why I’m Waiting:
How cool does this idea sound? So, I feel like I’m seriously interested in stories about killers lately…(My favorite show is Dexter. And I’m a little obsessed with the new abc family show: Twisted). What does this say about me? But any way, the idea that you can’t change what your genes give you is very interesting to me. I really enjoyed this author’s other books, and I’m excited to see she’s writing something new. I’m not the biggest fan of the cover, but the story sounds too good to pass up.
What are you waiting on this week?


  1. I have seen this book popping up in a lot of places lately. It sounds so good.

  2. I've been seeing this book around quite a bit lately and the more I see it the more excited I get! I love that bit about not being able to change your genes so they know what she will surely do. The cover is pretty meh,I agree but the blurb more than makes up for it! Awesome choice :)
