Waiting on Wednesday (Times Two!)

WOW is hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine

Variant by Robison Wells
Release: October 2011
Benson Fisher thought a scholarship to Maxfield Academy would be the ticket out of his dead-end life. 

He was wrong. 

Now he’s trapped in a school that’s surrounded by a razor-wire fence. A school where video cameras monitor his every move. Where there are no adults. Where the kids have split into groups in order to survive. 

Where breaking the rules equals death. 

But when Benson stumbles upon the school’s real secret, he realizes that playing by the rules could spell a fate worse than death, and that escape—his only real hope for survival—may be impossible.
This is pretty much every teenager's worst nightmare (oh, to be stuck in school...with no way out!). I'm very curious about this one. 

Crossed by Ally Condie
Release: November 2011
In search of a future that may not exist and faced with the decision of who to share it with, Cassia journeys to the Outer Provinces in pursuit of Ky — taken by the Society to his certain death — only to find that he has escaped, leaving a series of clues in his wake.

Cassia’s quest leads her to question much of what she holds dear, even as she finds glimmers of a different life across the border. But as Cassia nears resolve and certainty about her future with Ky, an invitation for rebellion, an unexpected betrayal, and a surprise visit from Xander — who may hold the key to the uprising and, still, to Cassia’s heart — change the game once again. Nothing is as expected on the edge of Society, where crosses and double crosses make the path more twisted than ever.
I so cannot wait for this book! The cover is a tad bit awkward in some spots, but intriguing nevertheless. 

What are you waiting on this week? 


  1. Great picks this week. I have Variant on my shelf and I am dying to check it out. And I loved Matched! =)

  2. Varient sounds like it could be really exciting and suspenseful! I still haven't read Matched even though I bought the book back when it was released. *gasp* ^.~

  3. Varient looks really good! Great WoW choice! =D

  4. Variant sounds good. It reminds me of The Candidates.

  5. I am DYING to read Crossed! Can't get here soon enough!

  7. Variant sounds like a great book, I haven't heard of it before. I haven't read Matched yet but, it's on my TBR List.

  8. I haven't heard of the first one but Crossed is one I want to read! My wishlist just keeps on getting longer and longer...


  9. I think Variant sounds great!

    At first glance that Crossed cover took me by surprise. Who's the bonehead at the publisher that missed the 'awkward' spot?

  10. I still need to read Matched, but I can't wait to start the series! I thought I had Variant on my list, but I didn't. Eek! I'm adding it now. :) Great picks! Thanks for sharing!

  11. I am reading Matched right now and it is great! I'm so excited for Crossed :) Great picks this week
