Waiting on WednesdayWaiting 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 BrownThis 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?!
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.
What are you waiting on this week?
