Waiting on Wednesday #33

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine where you share an upcoming release that you're anticipating on reading.

The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken
Expected Publication Date: December 18, 2012

When Ruby woke up on her tenth birthday, something about her had changed. Something frightening enough to make her parents lock her in the garage and call the police. Something that gets her sent to Thurmond, a brutal government “rehabilitation camp.” She might have survived the mysterious disease that’s killed most of America’s children, but she and the others have been cursed with something far worse: frightening abilities they cannot control.

Now sixteen, Ruby has spent nearly half her life desperately trying to hide the fact that she’s outwitted the camp’s sorting system—that she isn’t powerless, or safe. She’s one of the dangerous ones… and everyone knows what happens to them.

When the truth comes out, Ruby barely escapes Thurmond with her life. Now she’s on the run, desperate to find the one safe haven left for kids like her—East River. She joins a group of teens who escaped their own camp, pursued along the way by terrifying bounty hunters. Liam, their brave leader, is falling hard for Ruby. But no matter how much she aches for him, Ruby can’t risk getting close to him. Not after what happened to her parents.

When they arrive at East River, nothing is as it seems, least of all its mysterious leader. But there are other forces at work, people who will stop at nothing to use Ruby in their fight against the government. Before the end, Ruby will be faced with a terrible choice, one that may mean giving up her only chance at a life worth living.

Why I'm waiting?
I really want to know all about this "change" that Ruby goes through and this disease that kill the children. I also want more insight on these abilities! To top it all off, I hope to find out how exactly Ruby outwits the camp and how she eventually escapes Thurmond. The Darkest Minds sounds like an adventure I'm just dying to get sucked into. And I can't deny that I'm itching to read all about the romance with Liam and Ruby <33

Let me know what are you waiting on :)


  1. I am really curious as to what happened to Ruby and why all the children are dying and have powers. My kind of read!

  3. This has been a pretty popular pick lately! Thanks for sharing. ^.^ If you would like to check out my Waiting On Wednesday you can do so here. :)

  4. Not digging the cover but I gotta say that summary is really intriguing! I'm curious about what the disease is and what her transformation is too! Great pick! This one is going on my TBR list. :)

  6. I have seen this one around but due to the fact I wasn't horribly attracted to the cover I hadn't looked into it mush. I know that is bad but that's why I love WoW because I look at things I normally wouldn't and this one sounds like it is going to be AWESOME! Great pick :D
