Waiting on Wednesday *92*

Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by  Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming book releases that we're especially looking forward to!

Here's my pick this week:

The Glass Arrow by Kristen Simmons
Untitled Trilogy #1
Expected Publication: February 10th 2015 by Tor Teen

The Handmaid’s Tale meets Blood Red Road in Glass Arrow, the story of Aya, who lives with a small group of women on the run from the men who hunt them, men who want to auction off breeding rights to the highest bidder.

In a world where females are scarce and are hunted, then bought and sold at market for their breeding rights, 15-year old Aya has learned how to hide. With a ragtag bunch of other women and girls, she has successfully avoided capture and eked out a nomadic but free existence in the mountains. But when Aya’s luck runs out and she’s caught by a group of businessmen on a hunting expedition, fighting to survive takes on a whole new meaning.
While I still haven't read this author's previous work, the Article 5 trilogy, it has been on my tbr shelf for some time now.  The Glass Arrow however, sounds even more like a story I could really get into!  I mean don't get me wrong, I love a good quality dystopian as much as the next person, but this one ^^ is a dystopian with sci-fi and fantasy elements.  Yeah!!  The fact that this dystopian world targets females already has me on the edge of my seat - and all I've got to go on is the synopsis.  If the actual book follows that same trend, I think we're in for one hell of a ride!

What do you think about The Glass Arrow?
Fill me in below and don't forget to link me up as well :)


  1. This sounds AMAZING! I need to start doing this meme again cause I'm falling out of the loop of so many awesome sounding books! :) xxx

  2. I just requested this on Edelweiss, it sounds so good!
    Check out my WOW

  3. Oooh Great Pick! I haven't heard of this one yet. I love finding new books on people's posts.

  5. I haven't seen this one yet, but you're right it definitely sounds intriguing. I'm very interested in how she'll manage since she got caught. It's terrifying to think of being hunted specifically for being female. Thank you so much for sharing! Jaclyn @ JC's Book Haven.

  6. Looks like a fabulous book <3 And by the way, your blog looks fabulous!! My goodness, I love it. The design is absolutely awesome!

  7. I'm glad you mentioned Article 5 because the author's name rang a bell but I couldn't place her. I have to admit that I actually own Article 5 but haven't read it yet ^^'
    I don't know if I could deal with Glass Arrow though :/ It's a topic I sometimes have trouble with, and it would depend on how it's handled. I'll definitely keep an eye out for the reviews though!
    Thanks for stopping by yesterday :)
