Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, which allows bloggers to share the books they're eagerly anticipating to be released in 2011. I love doing this and checking out all the upcoming books bloggers find to share with everyone! Here's mine!

Ashes, Ashes by Jo Treggiari
A thrilling tale of adventure, romance, and one girl's unyielding courage through the darkest of nightmares.

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.

This sounds so intriguing and intense! I love the title and how it's implied the next words will be, as the nursery rhyme goes, ''we all fall down''. Books about the end of the world just fascinate me for some reason, in a wow-that-could-totally-happen-to-us kind of fascination. Plus this cover just completely draws me in-- I love how it shows the two kids with all the destruction looming over them. Very powerful!! This book comes out June 1st, 2011.

Have a wonderful reading Wednesday everyone!
