Waiting on Wednesday #89


 
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 for this week:

AtlantiaAtlantia
by Ally Condie
Release date: November 4th 2014
Publisher: Dutton

Synopsis via Goodreads:

A standalone YA novel.

"In Atlantia, the heroine, Rio, is thrown into a precarious and upsetting situation after her twin sister, Bay, opts to leave their underwater world for "Above" first. 

Since only family member can leave for the surface, Rio is then, as PYRG executive director of publicity Shanta Newlin explained, 'left with increasingly dangerous questions about the complex political and religious system constructed to govern the fragile divide between land and sea.'" -Publishers Weekly






Why I'm Waiting


While I still have not read Ally Condie's previous dystopian series, Matched, this upcoming book seems to intrigue me more. Atlantia sounds like an interesting dystopian setting that's somewhat different from the others because it takes place underwater. There's not really a blurb to go after but from that feedback by publisher's weekly I'm curious and cannot wait to devour the story.

What are you waiting for?

  19. Atlantia does have a lovely cover and the snippet from PW is intriguing, but I worry about a potential love triangle? I believe Matched has one. I'll wait to see what early reviewers have to say, but if there's any indication of a love t, I'll have to skip it. Though this does sound more politically driven, and if the focus is on that and strong family relationships, I'll pick it up! Thanks for introducing me to the title! I'll keep an eye out for updates. :)
