"Waiting on" Wednesday (on a Monday)
"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly feature started by Breaking the Spine blog, where upcoming and anticipated books are spotlighted -- there's a massive sign-up list where you can visit all the bloggers who are participating in the event, so if you want to check out more up-and-coming books, do head over there and take a look!
Since this is my first time participating and because I'm posting on a Monday instead of a Wednesday, I'm not going to add my name to the list (yet!) but do click through and check out the blog where this originated.
Typically, only one book is showcased at a time, which is making it incredibly difficult to choose which one to talk about...but I'm going to go ahead and start this off with one of my publisher sisters' books that I can't wait to read.
Fear My Mortality -- Everly Frost
Releases: April 5, 2016
Publisher: Month9Books, LLC
Description from GoodReads:
The future is bright for 16-year-old Ava Holland and the residents of Evereach. They don’t have to worry about old age or even getting sick. In their world, humans regenerate, heal, and live for hundreds of years. Mortality isn’t something to fear. Disease has been all but eradicated.
Everything changes when Ava watches her brother die and he doesn’t regenerate. Ava’s genetics are called into question by the government, scientists, extremists, and Ava herself. Could her genes hold the answer to mortality? Is she an anomaly or something to be feared?
Determined not to become anyone’s guinea pig, Ava doesn’t stick around to find out. She wants answers too, but the only person who can help her is 17-year-old Michael Bradley, the boy who killed her brother.
If either of them have even the slightest chance of survival, they must find the genetic keys hidden in Ava’s DNA before it’s too late.
I can't wait to read it! Check out Everly's website here.
