Waiting on Wednesday (98)

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 In the Afterlight by Alexandra Bracken (10/28/14):

Description on Goodreads:
Ruby can't look back. Fractured by an unbearable loss, she and the kids who survived the government's attack on Los Angeles travel north to regroup. With them is a prisoner: Clancy Gray, son of the president, and one of the few people Ruby has encountered with abilities like hers. Only Ruby has any power over him, and just one slip could lead to Clancy wreaking havoc on their minds.

They are armed only with a volatile secret: proof of a government conspiracy to cover up the real cause of IANN, the disease that has killed most of America's children and left Ruby and others like her with powers the government will kill to keep contained. But internal strife may destroy their only chance to free the "rehabilitation camps" housing thousands of other Psi kids.

Meanwhile, reunited with Liam, the boy she would-and did-sacrifice everything for to keep alive, Ruby must face the painful repercussions of having tampered with his memories of her. She turns to Cole, his older brother, to provide the intense training she knows she will need to take down Gray and the government. But Cole has demons of his own, and one fatal mistake may be the spark that sets the world on fire.
Why I’m Waiting:
I have loved this series since book 1. Seriously, they have all been epic. They are the ultimate kid power books. I feel like it has taken a remarkably long time for this third installment to come out. I’m not sure if this is because I read the sequel early (as an ARC) and then my sense of time changed…or if it really is taking forever to come out. Why couldn’t this book have been at BEA? Why? I need to know how it all ends. Need. I’m not sure how I feel about these covers. I get the sort of Hunger Games need to be simple and attract boys and girls, but I still wish it could have been a little more exciting. And I wish the symbols actually had anything to do with the story.
What are you waiting on this week?


  1. I've only read the first book in this series, and i felt it had a few plot holes so i haven't read the second one yet. But I haven't given up on the series yet! so hopefully it picks up in Never Fade :)

    Here's My WoW

  2. I've read the first one and loved the first half, the second half however I hated, really didn't like how one scene was handled, so I haven't read the second one yet. Hope you enjoy it when you read it though! :)

    Here's mine
