Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine, that allows book bloggers to showcase books they are…well, feverishly, impatiently, I-can’t-wait-to-get-my-grubby-little-hands-on-it waiting on.

What Jennifer Is Waiting On…


"Rise by Anna Carey"  

How far will you go when you have nothing left to lose?

When she lost her soul mate, Caleb, Eve felt like her world had ended. Trapped in the palace, forced to play the part of the happy, patriotic princess of The New America—and the blushing bride of her father’s top adviser—Eve’s whole life is a lie. The only thing that keeps her going is Caleb’s memory, and the revolution he started.

Now, Eve is taking over where Caleb left off. With the help of Moss, an undercover subversive in the King’s court, she plots to take down The New America, beginning with the capital, the City of Sand. Will Eve be able to bring about a new, free world when she’s called upon to perform the ultimate act of rebellion—killing her father?

In Rise, Eve must choose who to leave behind, who to save, and who to fight as Anna Carey’s epic tale of romance and sacrifice in the chilling dystopia of The New America comes to a stunning conclusion.

I felt just okay about Eve, but then Once sucked me in and didn’t let go!  I NEED RISE SO BAD.  NEED.  NEEEEEEEEEEEED.

  1. Good to know that book two managed to addict you to the series, since I was quite reluctant to pick up Eve. Now I think I might give it a try. Thanks for sharing. 😉 My WoW
