Waiting on Wednesday *107*

Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which we spotlight an upcoming book release we're especially looking forward to!

Here's my pick for this week:
Red Rising by Pierce Brown
Red Rising Trilogy #1
Expected Publication: January 28th by Random House

The Earth is dying. Darrow is a Red, a miner in the interior of Mars. His mission is to extract enough precious elements to one day tame the surface of the planet and allow humans to live on it. The Reds are humanity's last hope.

Or so it appears, until the day Darrow discovers it's all a lie. That Mars has been habitable - and inhabited - for generations, by a class of people calling themselves the Golds. A class of people who look down on Darrow and his fellows as slave labour, to be exploited and worked to death without a second thought.

Until the day that Darrow, with the help of a mysterious group of rebels, disguises himself as a Gold and infiltrates their command school, intent on taking down his oppressors from the inside. But the command school is a battlefield - and Darrow isn't the only student with an agenda.
This one's actually coming out TODAY, but I still felt the need to feature it because of how very, very excited I am about it.  I kind of missed the boat when this one started making it's rounds - it wasn't until all the positive reviews started rolling in that it caught my attention. Now I know that Red Rising sounds like just the book for me: Sci-fi, space, futuristic setting, dystopian-vibe, edge-of-your-seat plot and addictive writing.  Yup, that's a must-read right there.  I'm sad that I didn't jump on the bandwagon sooner but hey, better late than never right?!

What are you waiting on this week?

  1. I won a copy of this a while back but I still haven't read it yet. You'll have to let me know what you think when you eventually read it!

  3. Leah and I got this as an ARC, and then I bought an ebook as well, and that's almost a year ago, and I still haven't read it. So lame XD Maybe I should just wait the trilogy out :D
    I hope you get to this one soon! ;)

  5. I've heard so much about this series. So much and it's probably something I'd like. But for some reason I haven't felt much of a need to read it? Anyway, I hope you get to read it and love it :)

  6. Yup, it's a must-read by the sounds of it. I've been tempted to pick it up because I do so love falling into a brand new series, being introduced to the world, etc., but I feel like the better thing for me to do is wait until I can polish off a few other series that I have on-the-go before I dive into a new one. Ideally, all three books will be out at that point! I'm excited for it.

  7. I am exactly like you as far as this book is concerned. I don't like Sci fi at all and with all the mad gushing this book is getting, I know I have to read it and find out for myself why this series is getting a lot of love.

  8. *whispers* Do it....do it.....

    Seriously, I loved Red Rising & I adored Golden Son even more - how often does that happen?! I really hope you love it!
