Waiting on Wednesday #114 - Salvage and Invisible

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. Be sure to post a link to your Waiting on Wednesday below!

This week's pre-publication "We can't wait to read it!" selections are...

Author: Alexandra Duncan
Release Date: Aprill 1, 2014
Published by:Greenwillow

Ava, a teenage girl living aboard the male-dominated deep space merchant ship Parastrata, faces betrayal, banishment, and death. Taking her fate into her own hands, she flees to the Gyre, a floating continent of garbage and scrap in the Pacific Ocean, in this thrilling, surprising, and thought-provoking debut novel that will appeal to fans of Across the Universe, by Beth Revis, and The Handmaid's Tale, by Margaret Atwood. (Summary from Goodreads)

This sounds like a complex, gender-focused futuristic tale. I want to read it, and I assume the heroine will find strength she never knew she had before! I also am interested in the environmental element: her escape to the floating garbage dump continent in the Pacific...a disturbing but unfortunately believable futuristic setting detail. 

(The Twixt, Book 2)

Published by: Harlequin Teen

Some things lie beyond the surface.

Love will be tested, lives will be threatened, and everyone Joy knows and cares about will be affected by her decision to stand by Ink or to leave the Twixt forever.
Her choice is balanced on scalpel's edge and the consequences will be more shattering than anyone can know. (Summary from Goodreads)

Book 1 of this series was OFF THE CHARTS good in a Melissa Marr Wicked Lovely way! LOVED IT, so I cannot wait to get my hands on book two of this series!
