Waiting on Wednesday (197)

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 The Chemist by Stephenie Meyer (11/15/16):

Description on Goodreads:
In this gripping page-turner, an ex-agent on the run from her former employers must take one more case to clear her name and save her life.

She used to work for the U.S. government, but very few people ever knew that. An expert in her field, she was one of the darkest secrets of an agency so clandestine it doesn’t even have a name. And when they decided she was a liability, they came for her without warning.

Now, she rarely stays in the same place or uses the same name for long. They’ve killed the only other person she trusted, but something she knows still poses a threat. They want her dead, and soon.

When her former handler offers her a way out, she realizes it’s her only chance to erase the giant target on her back. But it means taking one last job for her ex-employers. To her horror, the information she acquires only makes her situation more dangerous.

Resolving to meet the threat head on, she prepares for the toughest fight of her life, but finds herself falling for a man who can only complicate her likelihood of survival. As she sees her choices being rapidly whittled down, she must apply her unique talents in ways she never dreamed of.

In this tautly plotted novel, Meyer creates a fierce and fascinating new heroine with a very specialized skill set. And she shows once again why she’s one of the world’s bestselling authors.
Why I’m Waiting:
Okay, so I know that not everyone likes Stephenie Meyer. I kinda do. I’ve reread all her Twilight books. And I devoured The Host. I was really excited to learn of this new one. The story sounds like a lot of fun. It sounds more adult than her other books. Basically, it sounds kinda like a Bourne movie, but with a female lead…and well, yes please!
What are you waiting on this week?


  1. Well I'm not going to even deny that I didn't love Twilight back when I read it - or The Host for that matter. I didn't even know Meyer had anything new coming out but now I'm curious! Thanks for putting this on my radar Nori and I can't wait to see what you think of this :D

  2. Oh, wow. I had no idea she was coming out with a new book, but I'm looking forward to it! This reminds me more of the old Bridge Fonda movie Point of No Return. Nice pick!

  3. Great pick! I just wish that Stephanie had come out with a sequel to the Host first. :/
