Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week I am waiting on Renegades by Marissa Meyer
Expected publication: November 7th 2017 by Feiwel & Friends
She wants vengeance. He wants justice.
The Renegades are a syndicate of prodigies—humans with extraordinary abilities—who emerged from the ruins of a crumbled society and established peace and order where chaos reigned. As champions of justice, they remain a symbol of hope and courage to everyone…except the villains they once overthrew.
Nova has a reason to hate the Renegades, and she is on a mission for vengeance. As she gets closer to her target, she meets Adrian, a Renegade boy who believes in justice—and in Nova. But Nova’s allegiance is to a villain who has the power to end them both. (Goodreads summary).
Why I Am Waiting
I fell head over heals in love with Marissa Meyer’s story telling from the first chapter of Cinder. The Lunar Chronicles is still one of my favorite series that I reread frequently (partially because I own the audio books and Rebecca Soler is a top notch narrator!) I wasn’t as captivated by Heartless as I was by The Lunar Chronicles but I’m also not a fan of Alice in Wonderland, like at all. Renegades will be her first non retelling and I am super excited to see what she has got in store! From the summary it sounds a bit like a dystopian, which I am drawn to like a magnet, and a bit futuristic, and a whole lot of GIVE ME NOW! This releases on the same day as The Becoming of Noah Shaw… I might have to flip a coin to determine which one to read first!
