Waiting on Wednesday #36


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spines. This is a cool way to spotlight a upcoming release that you're anxious about, as well as checking out what other book lovers are anticipating as well. So, check out my WoW this week:

Leap of Faith

Leap of Faith

by 
Expected publication: September 3rd 2013 
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers
Synopsis via Goodreads:
Now that Leah Kurtz has a place to call home, there’s no way she can tell the truth.
That her name is Faith, not Leah.
That she’s seventeen, not nineteen.
That the baby isn’t hers—she kidnapped her.
She had to kidnap Addy though. She couldn’t let her newborn sister grow up like she did, with parties where the drugs flow all night and an empty refrigerator in the kitchen holding nothing but pickle juice and ketchup packets inside.
She can’t risk losing Chris—the only guy she’s ever given herself to completely—by telling him she’s been lying. He’s the most generous person she’s ever known, and he’s already suffered the tragic deaths of his mom and infant sister.
But being on the run with a newborn catches up with her when a cop starts asking questions, and Chris’s aunt finds a newspaper article about Faith and a missing baby. Faith knows it’s time to run again—from Chris and the only place that’s ever felt like home.

Control (Control, #1)

Control (Control, #1)

by 
Expected publication: December 26th 2013 
Publisher: Dial Books for Young Readers
Synopsis via Goodreads:
After the violent death of her father, 17 year-old Zelia loses her younger sister, Dylia, during an abduction at a foster care agency. It turns out her sister Dylia isn’t just pretty and sweet – she’s illegal. In the year 2150, DNA must be pure by law, and anyone with enhanced genes face death. Zelia’s only allies are the freak-show inhabitants of her new, underground foster home. Along with the unexpected love of a very strange boy, she will need her flaws and their illicit traits to save the only family she has left.
I'm really interested in reading both books, especially Lead of Faith because of that kidnapping and change of identity concept. 
What are you waiting on?

  1. I want Control so so so so so much! Haha. It just sounds amazing and I love everything that the cover represents.

    Leap of Faith sounds very sad, yet thrilling at the same time. Sounds a bit like a sequel, though so I'll have to catch the first one first!

    1. That's what I thought too (about 'Leap of Faith' but maybe not. I totally agree about both books.

      Thanks for stopping by :)

  2. Oohhhhh Leap of Faith sounds super emotional and heartbreaking!!!! So sweet that she is trying to help her baby sister! But what happens when she gets caught? Will she leave Chris? Hopefully Chris' aunt can adopt them maybe? Great pick! Control sounds like a good dystopian with DNA that can be manipulated but it's illegal and they kill you for it?!
