Waiting on Wednesday (67)

Waiting on Wednesday is, of course, brought to us by the lovely Jill at Breaking the Spine.

The books-I've-found-stalking-people on Twitter edition!

First up:

Possession by Elana Johnson - To be released June 7th, 2011

Vi knows the Rule: Girls don't walk with boys, and they never even think about kissing them. But no one makes Vi want to break the Rules more than Zenn...and since the Thinkers have chosen him as Vi's future match, how much trouble can one kiss cause? The Thinkers may have brainwashed the rest of the population, but Vi is determined to think for herself.

But the Thinkers are unusually persuasive, and they're set on convincing Vi to become one of them...starting by brainwashing Zenn. Vi can't leave Zenn in the Thinkers' hands, but she's wary of joining the rebellion, especially since that means teaming up with Jag. Jag is egotistical, charismatic, and dangerous--everything Zenn's not. Vi can't quite trust Jag and can't quite resist him, but she also can't give up on Zenn.

This is a game of control or be controlled. And Vi has no choice but to play.

(Summary from goodreads.)

Why I want this: It sounds incredible and the cover is GORGEOUS. I swear I heard about this one on Twitter, but I wasn't following the author. (Remedied now.)

And my other choice is:

Ashes, Ashes by Jo Treggiari - To be released June 1st, 2011

Epidemics, floods, droughts--for sixteen-year-old Lucy, the end of the world came and went, taking 99% of the population with it. As the weather continues to rage out of control, and Sweepers clean the streets of plague victims, Lucy survives alone in the wilds of Central Park. But when she's rescued from a pack of hunting dogs by a mysterious boy named Aidan, she reluctantly realizes she can't continue on her own. She joins his band of survivors, yet, a new danger awaits her: the Sweepers are looking for her. There's something special about Lucy, and they will stop at nothing to have her.

(Summary from goodreads.)

Why I want this: I talk to the author pretty often on Twitter. She's Canadian and she talks to me! She's totally awesome and I can't wait to read her book. (And though I feel like I'm repeating myself, her cover is stunning.)

Okay, so what are you guys waiting on today?

Peace and cookies,
Laina
