Waiting on Wednesday #20

Waiting On Wednesday hosted by Breaking The Spine

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by the fantastic people over at Breaking The Spine that highlights upcoming releases that we are excited about.

For this week my pre-publication selection that I can’t wait for is:

In a Handful of Dust by Mindy McGinnis

Set For Release On: September 23rd, 2014

Summary From GoodreadsIn a Handful of Dust

The only thing bigger than the world is fear.

Lucy’s life by the pond has always been full. She has water and friends, laughter and the love of her adoptive mother, Lynn, who has made sure that Lucy’s childhood was very different from her own. Yet it seems Lucy’s future is settled already—a house, a man, children, and a water source—and anything beyond their life by the pond is beyond reach.

When disease burns through their community, the once life-saving water of the pond might be the source of what’s killing them now. Rumors of desalinization plants in California have lingered in Lynn’s mind, and the prospect of a “normal” life for Lucy sets the two of them on an epic journey west to face new dangers: hunger, mountains, deserts, betrayal, and the perils of a world so vast that Lucy fears she could be lost forever, only to disappear in a handful of dust.

I know this is going to be a really popular pick this week because OH MY GOODNESS LOOK AT THAT COVER!!!! O_O *stares*

Seriously though, so freaking pretty, worth a buy just to have it on my shelves, and goodness do I want that book! I really enjoyed Not a Drop to Drink and IaHoD is going to tell the story from Lucy’s perspective which is AWESOME! This is a great dystopian series (at least based on book 1), I know McGinnis is going to do more wonders with this one, oh, and did you see the summary? ROAD TRIP!!! Yes please, thank you, can I have it now? o_o

Can’t wait for this book, it is really far off…but I’ll make do somehow. What are your thoughts on IaHoD’s cover? Have you read Not a Drop to Drink, and if so are you excited for book 2 or is this not the series for you? What book are you “Waiting On”? Let me know in the comments and/or leave a link to your own WoW post and I will make sure to stop by! Thanks for checking out my Waiting On Wednesday! ^.^
