Waiting on Wednesday (146): VANISHING GIRLS & ATLANTIA

WOW is hosted by Breaking the Spine

Atlantia by Ally Condie
October 28, 2014 from Dutton Children's

Can you hear Atlantia breathing?

For as long as she can remember, Rio has dreamt of the sand and sky Above—of life beyond her underwater city of Atlantia. But in a single moment, all her plans for the future are thwarted when her twin sister, Bay, makes an unexpected decision, stranding Rio Below. Alone, ripped away from the last person who knew Rio’s true self—and the powerful siren voice she has long hidden—she has nothing left to lose.

Guided by a dangerous and unlikely mentor, Rio formulates a plan that leads to increasingly treacherous questions about her mother’s death, her own destiny, and the complex system constructed to govern the divide between land and sea. Her life and her city depend on Rio to listen to the voices of the past and to speak long-hidden truths.

Sounds fascinating. I enjoy Condie's writing style - very fluid and poetic - so I'm excited for her newest work!

Vanishing Girls by Lauren Oliver
March 3rd, 2015 from HarperCollins
New York Times bestselling author Lauren Oliver delivers a gripping story about two sisters inexorably altered by a terrible accident.

Dara and Nick used to be inseparable, but that was before the accident that left Dara's beautiful face scarred and the two sisters totally estranged. When Dara vanishes on her birthday, Nick thinks Dara is just playing around. But another girl, nine-year-old Madeline Snow, has vanished, too, and Nick becomes increasingly convinced that the two disappearances are linked. Now Nick has to find her sister, before it's too late.

In this edgy and compelling novel, Lauren Oliver creates a world of intrigue, loss, and suspicion as two sisters search to find themselves, and each other.
New Lauren Oliver book? I'M SOLD.

  8. Both of your picks sound good! Sirens! I hope that you get to read them soon, girly! :)

  9. Great picks sweetie. <3 I really hope you will love both books :D I.. do not like the writing of these two authors :( Okay, I did love two Lauren books. But hated a third. And will never finish the Delirium books. Sigh. So I'm a bit wary of her, lol. And I had lots of issues with Matched :\ but will give those books another try later on. Anyway! Thank you for sharing. <3
