Waiting On Wednesday (17)


April 16th 2013
My Thoughts:
This looks like it's gonna be my kinda book. And the fact that it's got a male protag? YES PLEASE!! Also the Heist looks scary as hell. And whatever lies beyond the Wall. Creepy! I also heard that there would be a love triangle, but with two girls fighting for the same guy. FINALLY!
Cover thoughts:  I love the mixing of the colours - gorgeous! And also the reflection of the tree below *squeals* The only thing that makes me want to kick myself is the two people. I really don't like they way they're standing or looking or whatever. Just get them off the cover please! I personally think it just ruins it and and the poor peeps just look so out of place lol. Overall this is a cover that would get people's attention in a bookstore/library. I know it would get mine.
There are no men in Claysoot. There are boys—but every one of them vanishes at midnight on his eighteenth birthday. The ground shakes, the wind howls, a blinding light descends...and he’s gone.

They call it the Heist.

Gray Weathersby’s eighteenth birthday is mere months away, and he’s prepared to meet his fate–until he finds a strange note from his mother and starts to question everything he’s been raised to accept: the Council leaders and their obvious secrets. The Heist itself. And what lies beyond the Wall that surrounds Claysoot–a structure that no one can cross and survive.

Climbing the Wall is suicide, but what comes after the Heist could be worse. Should he sit back and wait to be taken–or risk everything on the hope of the other side?

My Thoughts: The summary just sounds really interesting! And twins!
Cover thoughts: Very eye-catching! And the colors isn't something you see in a YA book every day.

Elissa used to have it all: looks, popularity, and a bright future. But for the last three years, she’s been struggling with terrifying visions, phantom pains, and mysterious bruises that appear out of nowhere.

Finally, she’s promised a cure: minor surgery to burn out the overactive area of her brain. But on the eve of the procedure, she discovers the shocking truth behind her hallucinations: she’s been seeing the world through another girl’s eyes.

Elissa follows her visions, and finds a battered, broken girl on the run. A girl—Lin—who looks exactly like Elissa, down to the matching bruises. The twin sister she never knew existed.

Now, Elissa and Lin are on the run from a government who will stop at nothing to reclaim Lin and protect the dangerous secrets she could expose—secrets that would shake the very foundation of their world.

Riveting, thought-provoking and utterly compelling, Linked will make you question what it really means to be human.

My Thoughts: Umm with two sexy guys and a cruise ship? Hell yes! Also, she's got a kick ass name. Autumn Taylor. I like. 
Cover thoughts: I really don't like this cover. The proportions and placings of the people just look really weird and out of place. BUT. I still want to read it.

A cruise ship. A beautiful island. Two sexy guys. What could possibly go wrong?

In the Bermuda Triangle—a lot.

Hoping to leave behind the reminders of her crappy life--her father's death years ago, her mother's medical problems, and the loser who’s practically stalking her--seventeen-year-old Autumn Taylor hops on a ship with her sister for a little distraction. When she wakes up in the Bermuda Triangle, she fears she's gone nuts for more than one reason: that loser’s suddenly claiming they're a happy couple... a hot guy is wrapping his arms around her and saying "Happy Anniversary"... and suddenly, she’s full of bruises, losing her hair, and getting IV medication. Autumn visits the ship's doctor, hoping for a pill or a shot to make the craziness go away. Instead, she's warned that these "alternate realities" could become permanent.

She just has to ask herself one question—how the hell is she going to get out of this mess?

My Thoughts: I don't even like this series anymore. But. TEAM LINDEN. Still gonna read. Gabriel and Rhine can die for all I care.
Cover thoughts: The green. Argh the green! MY EYES! It hurts my bloody eyes. That is probably the ugliest green I have ever seen. It's a shame coz all of the other covers are beautiful and they have to make a joke out of this one. The objects and the gown is okay, but with the background it just looks like a case of bad Photoshop. Also. Why IS her mouth hanging open like that? She just looks awkward.

In the first two books of the Chemical Garden trilogy, Wither and Fever, Rhine struggles to escape the mansion and then to navigate the brutal world outside. Now in Sever, the third and final book, Rhine uncovers some shattering truths about the past that her parents never had the chance to tell her and the alarming implications regarding her own genes. She may be the one who can save the human race.

My Thoughts: I love Day. Enough said. 
Cover thoughts: Probably one of my favourite covers EVER. I love the symbol, the colours, the font. Thank God they chose symbolic images instead of people for this series.
The Elector Primo of the Republic has died, with his son assuming power over what’s left of the USA’s West Coast as it teeters on full-blown chaos. June and Day join up with Patriot rebels so they can rescue Day’s brother and head east for the Colonies. In order to help, though, the rebels want June and Day to kill the new Elector, who may pose an even greater threat than his father.
