Waiting on Wednesday (70)

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 Enders by Lissa Price (1/7/14):

Description on Goodreads:
With the Prime Destinations body bank destroyed, Callie no longer has to rent herself out to creepy Enders. But Enders can still get inside her mind and make her do things she doesn't want to do. Like hurt someone she loves. Having the chip removed could save Callie's life - but it could also silence the voice in her head that might belong to her father. Callie has flashes of her ex-renter Helena's memories, too ...and the Old Man is back, filling her with fear. Who is real and who is masquerading in a teen body? This is the thrilling sequel to "Starters".
Why I’m Waiting:
I had so much fun reading Starters. I loved the kind of Doll House-esque plotline. The idea of a world where wealthy senior citizens can take over young people’s bodies is just kind of terrifying. My eyes were glued to that story. Unfortunately, the publisher never does seem able to get a good cover working for these books. The first cover was terrible and reminiscent of a middle grade/Goosebump type book. And this second cover looks like it’s on drugs. I will not let the weird covers stop me from enjoying the story. It’s just kind of a shame to think about all the young people who wont get to see how awesome this story is because they won’t want to pick up such a badly covered book. Oh well. Also, why is it taking so long to come out? I read book one like two years ago (probably as an ARC but still). Come on 2014!
What are you waiting on this week?


  1. I haven't read Starters yet. I did watch Doll House and enjoyed it. Sounds like one I need to check out!
