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
Shards & Ashes
Release date: February 19th 2013
Gripping original stories of dystopian worlds from nine New York Times bestselling authors, edited by Melissa Marr and Kelley Armstrong
The world is gone, destroyed by human, ecological, or supernatural causes. Survivors dodge chemical warfare and cruel gods; they travel the reaches of space and inhabit underground caverns. Their enemies are disease, corrupt corporations, and one another; their resources are few, and their courage is tested.
Powerful original dystopian tales from nine bestselling authors offer bleak insight, prophetic visions, and precious glimmers of light among the shards and ashes of a ruined world.
Kelley Armstrong, Melissa Marr, Rachel Caine, Kami Garcia, Nancy Holder, Beth Revis, Veronica Roth, Carrie Ryan, Margaret Stohl.
Why I want to read it? Because I love dystopian! I can´t wait to read Kelley Armstrong and Veronica Roth´s short stories.
