Waiting on Wednesday (#16)


You know the story. This is a meme created by Breaking the Spine and every week we pick books we're waiting for. Here are our picks for this week.

Glass' pick

Can you hear Atlantia breathing?

For as long as she can remember, Rio has dreamt of the sand and sky Above—of life beyond her underwater city of Atlantia. But in a single moment, all her plans for the future are thwarted when her twin sister, Bay, makes an unexpected decision, stranding Rio Below. Alone, ripped away from the last person who knew Rio’s true self—and the powerful siren voice she has long hidden—she has nothing left to lose.

Guided by a dangerous and unlikely mentor, Rio formulates a plan that leads to increasingly treacherous questions about her mother’s death, her own destiny, and the complex system constructed to govern the divide between land and sea. Her life and her city depend on Rio to listen to the voices of the past and to speak long-hidden truths.

Tanja's pick

Ares, God of War, is leading the other dying gods into battle. Which is just fine with Athena. She's ready to wage a war of her own, and she's never liked him anyway. If Athena is lucky, the winning gods will have their immortality restored. If not, at least she'll have killed the bloody lot of them, and she and Hermes can die in peace.

Cassandra Weaver is a weapon of fate. The girl who kills gods. But all she wants is for the god she loved and lost to return to life. If she can't have that, then the other gods will burn, starting with his murderer, Aphrodite.

The alliance between Cassandra and Athena is fragile. Cassandra suspects Athena lacks the will to truly kill her own family. And Athena fears that Cassandra's hate will get them ALL killed.

The war takes them across the globe, searching for lost gods, old enemies, and Achilles, the greatest warrior the world has ever seen. As the struggle escalates, Athena and Cassandra must find a way to work together. Because if they can't, fates far worse than death await.

  11. I am interested in both of these. I liked Matched but hated Crossed and I havent' read the finale in that series. I also love Kendare Blake and I am anxious to continue that series.

  12. I have the first 2 books in Allie Condie's other series on my shelf and Antigoddess, but haven't read them. Seeing new books by these authors reminds me how far behind I am on my reading.

  13. I'm very curious about Atlantia. I can't wait to see some reviews!

    OdgovoriIzbriši
  14. I've never read anything by Condie, but I haven't had much success with sea creature books. I enjoyed one book of Kendare Blakes, but not the second one. Hope you get to read your choices soon, Glass and Tanja! :)

  19. I'm quite disappointed by the cover change for Blake's novels but am curious to see what you make of Mortal Gods, Tanja. And Glass, your pick has such a pretty cover! I'm definitely drawn in and intrigued by it already. Great picks, ladies!

  20. I've heard great things about Atlantia so far and I can't wait to read it! Mortal Gods does sound like it's up my alley though, although I haven't read or heard too much about Antigoddess which is on my shelves.

    OdgovoriIzbriši
  21. I also really want to read Atlantia. I didn't like her Matched series too much and I want to give Ally Condie a second chance :)
