Waiting on Wednesday #98 + Giveaway


 
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. Here's what I'm waiting for:

19085549Astray (Gated #2)
by Amy Christine Parker
Release date: August 26th 2014
Publisher: Random House

Synopsis via Goodreads

Lyla is caught between two worlds. The isolated Community that she grew up in and the outside world that she’s navigating for the very first time. The outsiders call the Community a cult, but Pioneer miraculously survived a shooting that should have killed him. Are the faithful members right to stay true to his message? Is this just a test of faith? One thing is for sure: the Community will do anything to bring Lyla back to the fold. 

Trapped in a spider’s web of deception, will Lyla detect the sticky threads tightening around her before it’s too late? She’ll have to unravel the mystery of what Pioneer and the Community are truly up to if she wants to survive.

Suspenseful and chilling, Astray is Amy Christine Parker’s nerve-fraying sequel to Gated. This fast-paced psychological thriller is masterfully plotted and sure to leave goose bumps. Perfect for fans of creepy YA thrillers and contemporary fiction alike.




Why I'm Waiting


I liked Gated. I had no idea Amy was going to continue the story so you can imagine my surprise when I came across the sequel on Goodreads. I like the synopsis and am very intrigued. Now I want to know how Lyla is adjusting to the outside world and what the community is going to do to try to retrieve her. Will they be able to escape Pioneer's control once and for all? I'm so curious now.


What are you waiting for?
