Waiting on Wednesday - January 23, 2013

  Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme from Jill at Breaking the Spine. To join in, share the book or books that you are currently drooling over as you await their release and report back to Breaking the Spine with the link to your post. The gorgeous badge above is brought to us by Lindsay at The Violet Hour!

 This is going to be one of my top "waiting for" books of the year. I'm reading Beautiful Darkness right now and can't wait to see what Stohl has come up with now! They also stated a few months ago that we will probably be able to see the different writing styles once their individual books come out. It's going to be interesting....
Icons by Margaret Stohl
Hardcover, 448 pages
Expected publication: May 7th 2013 by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
From Goodreads: 
Your heart beats only with their permission.

Everything changed on The Day. The day the windows shattered. The day the power stopped. The day Dol's family dropped dead. The day Earth lost a war it didn't know it was fighting.

Since then, Dol has lived a simple life in the countryside -- safe from the shadow of the Icon and its terrifying power. Hiding from the one truth she can't avoid.

She's different. She survived. Why?

When Dol and her best friend, Ro, are captured and taken to the Embassy, off the coast of the sprawling metropolis once known as the City of Angels, they find only more questions. While Ro and fellow hostage Tima rage against their captors, Dol finds herself drawn to Lucas, the Ambassador's privileged son. But the four teens are more alike than they might think, and the timing of their meeting isn't a coincidence. It's a conspiracy.

Within the Icon's reach, Dol, Ro, Tima, and Lucas discover that their uncontrollable emotions -- which they've always thought to be their greatest weaknesses -- may actually be their greatest strengths.

Bestselling author Margaret Stohl delivers the first book in a heart-pounding series set in a haunting new world where four teens must piece together the mysteries of their pasts -- in order to save the future.

You will absolutely die when you get to 'Beautiful Chaos'. Just saying... I've seen this book before but this time round the description sounds so much more appealing to me. I'm not sure why though. Maybe I read a different one last time? Good choice.

Yeah!! I love Beautiful Creatures, too. It'll be interesting to see what this one is like without her writing partner. Still good I bet! Thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog earlier!
