WoW [18]

Waiting on Wednesday (WoW) is a weekly event hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week’s Wow feature is:
The Registry by Shannon Stoker
Expected Publication: June 11, 2013
Publisher: William Morrow

Summary via Goodreads...
The Registry saved the country from collapse. But stability has come at a price. In this patriotic new America, girls are raised to be brides, sold at auction to the highest bidder. Boys are raised to be soldiers, trained by the state to fight to their death.

Nearly eighteen, beautiful Mia Morrissey excitedly awaits the beginning of her auction year. But a warning from her married older sister raises dangerous thoughts. Now, instead of going up on the block, Mia is going to escape to Mexico—and the promise of freedom.

All Mia wants is to control her own destiny—a brave and daring choice that will transform her into an enemy of the state, pursued by powerful government agents, ruthless bounty hunters, and a cunning man determined to own her . . . a man who will stop at nothing to get her back.

WHY I CAN'T WAIT...
….This just sounds really good…plain and simple. All this action you can’t help but be taken in.

So what are you all waiting on? Please share.

  1. I was a bit worried this would be another book like The Selection until that second paragraph! Haha. But wow this does sound incredibly awesome! Added to my to be read pile :)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and the follow.

    I love how reverse this is. Usually it's the nerds getting a make over and becoming pretty and popular. I love how it's otherwise! Great pick!

  13. I love the sound of this book - sounds a little like the Hunger Games as far as a "selection" or "registration" goes but yet different enough to be interesting because clearly things are different in other countries.

    Here's my WoW
