“Waiting on” Wednesday: Crossed

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine. The purpose is to spotlight upcoming releases that we are excited for.

Crossed by Ally Condie

Hardcover: ??? pages
Publication date: November 1, 2011
Publisher: Dutton Juvenile

From Amazon.com:

In search of a future that may not exist and faced with the decision of who to share it with, Cassia journeys to the Outer Provinces in pursuit of Ky–taken by the Society to his certain death-only to find that he has escaped, leaving a series of clues in his wake.

Cassia’s quest leads her to question much of what she holds dear, even as she finds glimmers of a different life across the border. But as Cassia nears resolve and certainty about her future with Ky, an invitation for rebellion, an unexpected betrayal, and a surprise visit from Xander-who may hold the key to the uprising and, still, to Cassia’s heart–change the game once again. Nothing is as expected on the edge of Society, where crosses and double crosses make the path more twisted than ever.

  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog. This books sounds good. I will be watching for it to come out.

  2. I’m excited for this one too! I really liked the first one and can’t wait to see what happens next! My WoW is at Coffee Table Reviews

    1. It definitely seems like it’ll be an interesting continuation to the Matched books.

  3. I won’t read the synopsis to this one because I haven’t read MATCHED yet (it’s on my shelf). It looks like a great series, but I heard a lot of people thought it was just ok. I’m still gonna read it either way, I love dystopians! Great pick!

    Feel free to check out my WoW here.

    1. Read it! I’ve never been someone who enjoyed dystopians, so this series is out of the norm for me. But it’s definitely something that’s a good read.

  4. Great Pick! I can’t wait for this one too. Too bad that we have to wait a long time! I love the cover though. Feel free to take a look at my WOW on my blog

    1. This cover is cool, and I love how they fit this series so well. Though I did like the green cover from Matched better.

  5. I really enjoyed Matched and am definitely waiting on this one as well. Great pick!

  6. I definitely have this one on my TBR. I love the cover as well.

    My WoW!

  7. I hope that when you get your book, it is everything you hope it to be. Check out what I am Waiting On Wednesday for. Happy Reading.

  8. Unfortunately, I couldn’t like Matched due to its similarity to The Giver. Maybe one day I will read it again with a more open mind.

    1. Ah, I’ve never read The Giver, so it was never an issue for me. Though, I feel embarrassed to admit I’ve never read it. Honestly, I don’t like dystopian/utopian society stories because of that wrongness I feel from them. I prefer more ‘normal’ contemporary settings. But I think that if I could find a way to enjoy it, maybe one day you can too. I won’t give up hope. 😉

  9. Not my usual kind of read but sounds interesting! Thanks for stopping by my WoW.
