Waiting on Wednesday: Salvage

Wednesday, July 24, 2013

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine, and specifically spotlights upcoming novels we can't wait to read. As always, there are some amazing upcoming books, but this week I'm particularly excited for...

Title: Salvage
Author: Alexandra Duncan (Twitter)
Publisher: Greenwillow Books
Publish Date: April 1, 2014
Genre: YA, Sci-Fi, Dystopian
Pages: 400

With one life-altering decision, a sixteen-year-old girl from an isolated community in space is exiled to the over-populated and crumbling Earth.
Wait. What? That's all you're gonna tell us, literary gods? F'reals? C'mon...just a bitty bit more? Guys, I can't tell you how long I searched for a longer synopsis. There is nothing to be found. I both blame and admire Miss Alexandra Duncan for this extreme lack of information that has me salivating for her novel. Legit salivating. I digress. Seriously though, I'm hooked on the sci-fi genre lately, I love me some dark and messy post-apocalyptic dystopian nonsense, and I'd like to curl up inside that book cover. I can has? What do you think, and what are you waiting on this week?

  1. I've never been one for sci fi, but lately I've become obsessed with Doctor Who. And it's made me more open to sci fi.

    1. I've always been a bit of a sci-fi nut, and YA seems to be making it work a lot better as of late! I hope you give more of it a go!

  5. This synopsis is even more vague than the one for my WOW choice this week! But it makes me all the more interested, so I don't think it's particularly a bad thing :P
    My WOW :)

  6. That's just not enough information. WTH, man?!? That's a tagline, not a blurb! I NEED A BLURB!! *sigh* Definitely on my to-read list, despite the lack of info.

  7. That synopsis is way too short, but I sure do love that cover and I'm super excited for this!
    I love how unique the idea sounds! She is banished to Earth! That just sounds too cool to me! :)

  8. I saw this on Goodreads and said the same thing. Like, what the crap aren't gonna fill us in more? :) I guess we'll get more along the way!

    nice Pick!

  9. Ooh, I gotta say I love the cover and this one sounds so promising. I hope it winds up being just as good! As always, I haven't even heard of this, but straight onto my TBR it goes!(:

  10. Gorgeous cover (my eyes still shop by cover)!! Have you noticed there are a lot of books coming out in April next year? I better start saving some money for next April. This one looks great! As far as the blurb, I'd rather too little than too much. I hate when they give so much away there are no surprises. So this is better, right??? Wonder what she did? And why she got dropped on a beach instead of say, the grass?

  11. I love books which hardly give anything away and just leave you hanging on for more! Salvage sounds wonderful from that little tidbit and the cover is stunning! I hope we get to find out more about this book soon! :)

  12. It has a cover (gorgeous, btw) but that's all we get for a synopsis?! Is it some sort of a publicity trick? Well, I'm a total cover slut and I don't care either way. I'll get this one just because of that.

  13. I truly hope this is as epic as it looks and sounds. I'll probably read it even if there are mixed reviews. Also, I may buy it just to stare at the cover on my shelf! It's that pretty :D

  14. Fantastic WOW choice! I've been waiting to post this one for my WOW, mostly because I'm dying to read a longer summary first. Let's hope we'll get a longer summary soon! I have high hopes for this book :)

  15. THAT COVER. *dies* But seriously, I think the extra twist with sci-fi into a post-apocalyptic sounds really freaking awesome. It's a shame that the synopsis is so short though! I'm really looking forward to this one, thanks for sharing, Melissa!

  16. Wow, there is really nothing about this book out there, is there?? Talk about tantalizing!
