Waiting on Wednesday



Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine, that highlights upcoming book releases that everyone is waiting on.

This weeks selection is:

Title: Chosen Ones
Author: Tiffany Truitt
Published: June 12 2012
Goodreads Summary:

 Sixteen-year-old Tess lives in a compound in what was once the Western United States, now decimated after a devastating fourth World War. But long before that, life as we knew it had been irrevocably changed, as women mysteriously lost the ability to bring forth life. Faced with the extinction of the human race, the government began the Council of Creators, meant to search out alternative methods of creating life. The resulting artificial human beings, or Chosen Ones, were extraordinarily beautiful, unbelievably strong, and unabashedly deadly.

Life is bleak, but uncomplicated for Tess as she follows the rigid rules of her dystopian society, until the day she begins work at Templeton, the training facility for newly created Chosen Ones. There, she meets James, a Chosen One whose odd love of music and reading rivals only her own. The attraction between the two is immediate in its intensity—and overwhelming in its danger.

But there is more to the goings-on at Templeton than Tess ever knew, and as the veil is lifted from her eyes, she uncovers a dark underground movement bent not on taking down the Chosen Ones, but the Council itself. Will Tess be able to stand up to those who would oppress her, even if it means giving up the only happiness in her life


My Thoughts: 
I haven't read a good dystopian in a while, I love this cover and the girls hair lol, also the font. I am really curious to find out more about the chosen ones. What are you waiting for this week?

Happy Reading!
Kristin

  3. This one sounds good, I'm totally into dystopians and they have yet to really let me down. I do believe this was at one time on NetGalley, not sure if it's still there, but worth a peek none the less. Great pick!

    My WoW.
