Waiting On Wednesday #9!!

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted at Breaking The Spine  that spotlights those can't-wait-to-get-my-hands-on-them books that we are eagerly awaiting!

 This week the book I'm bitting-my-nails-in-advance-for-its-release is Perfect Ruin by Lauren DeStefano!!



Goodreads summary:

"From the New York Times bestselling author of The Chemical Garden trilogy: On the floating city of Internment, you can be anything you dream. Unless you approach the edge.

Morgan Stockhour knows getting too close to the edge of Internment, the floating city in the clouds where she lives, can lead to madness. Even though her older brother, Lex, was a Jumper, Morgan vows never to end up like him. If she ever wonders about the ground, and why it is forbidden, she takes solace in her best friend, Pen, and in Basil, the boy she’s engaged to marry.

Then a murder, the first in a generation, rocks the city. With whispers swirling and fear on the wind, Morgan can no longer stop herself from investigating, especially once she meets Judas. Betrothed to the victim, he is the boy being blamed for the murder, but Morgan is convinced of his innocence. Secrets lay at the heart of Internment, but nothing can prepare Morgan for what she will find – or whom she will lose."

 

Why am I eagerly awaiting Perfect Ruin? First of all cause I loved Lauren's previous series and the way she writes her stories and characters. And second: floating city? Murder mystery in supposedly idilic society? GIMME! I also got the chance to read the first few pages of the book online via Scribd (thank you Lauren!) which totally made me want to read the full book even more! Next week is nearly here!!


What are you all (im)patiently waiting to hear?

  1. I'm looking forward to this too! I haven't read all of Lauren DeStefanos previous books, but I really like the sound of this one. I much prefer the US cover, though this one is still quite nice. Thanks for sharing! :)

    1. Thank you, Alyssa! It's the UK edition, quite pretty, even if not as pretty as the US one in my opinion! Can't wait to see what you think of PR when you get to read it.

  5. Really excited about Perfect Ruin. It'll be interesting to see how Lauren has changed since completing the Wither series.

  7. Hmm...I wasn't a fan of Wither, so I'm very hesitant towards this one, but I like that it's a mystery and fantasy. Great combo! Thanks for sharing :) Though I like the cover much better.
