Waiting On Wednesday (122): Blackbird

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

The book I´m waiting this week is

Blackbird (Blackbird Duology #1) by Anna Carey
Release date: September 16th 2014
This twisty, breathless cat-and-mouse thrill ride, told in the second person, follows a girl with amnesia in present-day Los Angeles who is being pursued by mysterious and terrifying assailants.

A girl wakes up on the train tracks, a subway car barreling down on her. With only minutes to react, she hunches down and the train speeds over her. She doesn’t remember her name, where she is, or how she got there. She has a tattoo on the inside of her right wrist of a blackbird inside a box, letters and numbers printed just below: FNV02198. There is only one thing she knows for sure: people are trying to kill her.

On the run for her life, she tries to untangle who she is and what happened to the girl she used to be. Nothing and no one are what they appear to be. But the truth is more disturbing than she ever imagined.

The Maze Runner series meets Code Name Verity, Blackbird is relentless and action-packed, filled with surprising twists.

Why I'm Waiting?
I haven´t read The Maze Runner or Code Name Verity, but it sounds to me sort of like the first Bourne movie, that´s why I would like to read this book.

  4. This one sounds very intriguing with the second person narrative and the thriller feel of the synopsis, great pick!

  5. This sounds great but I seem to struggle with books that are not written in the 1st POV for some reason!
    I'll wait for the reviews to come in before making a decision!
    Great pick!

  6. This one sounds interesting, especially because it's duology and for some reason I've always really like duologies.

  10. That has such an interesting cover! I hope you'll enjoy it. :)

  11. Sounds so very good, and I am loving the cover! It sounds like it could be a great thriller, but I say that and a lot of times the book doesn't turn out that way. I am hoping that this one will be as thrilling as they come!
