Waiting on Wednesday [10]

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
The Pledge by Kimberly Derting (release date November 15, 2011)
In the violent country of Ludania, the classes are strictly divided by the language they speak. The smallest transgression, like looking a member of a higher class in the eye while they are speaking their native tongue, results in immediate execution. Seventeen-year-old Charlaina has always been able to understand the languages of all classes, and she’s spent her life trying to hide her secret. The only place she can really be free is the drug-fueled underground clubs where people go to shake off the oppressive rules of the world they live in. It's there that she meets a beautiful and mysterious boy named Max who speaks a language she's never heard before...and her secret is almost exposed.

Charlie is intensely attracted to Max, even though she can’t be sure where his real loyalties lie. As the emergency drills give way to real crisis and the violence escalates, it becomes clear that Charlie is the key to something much bigger: her country’s only chance for freedom from the terrible power of a deadly regime.
I really liked The Body Finder, so I'm glad to see that Kimberly Derting is writing more books! (Not that this has to do with anything, but I really like the cover!)

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?


  1. Emily~

    oh my gosh, this sounds soooo good! I haven't read The Body Finder yet, but it is on my TBR list and will probably be within the next 3-4 books I read. I have heard so many great reviews for Kimberly Derting's series though, that I am really excited for this new book-- and the cover is lov-el-ly!!

    Thanks for the heads-up! I will keep my eye out for this one ;)

  2. Sounds interesting. The idea of the language = caste is interesting. I don't think I've seen that before. I really like the cover, I've been seeing it around a bit. Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

  3. Dystopians, oh how I love thee. This one sounds like a stunner. Also, this cover? GORGEOUS. Thanks for listing it!

  4. *gasp* What a gorgeous cover! This book is definitely going on my wishlist, and not just because of the cover...okay, mostly because of the cover. :)

  5. Okay, now that I've added it to my goodreads I can come back and thank you. The cover is so simple yet lovely and you had me at first sentence. I'm all sorts of excited about this now, thanks for sharing!

  6. Great pick! Definitely looking forward to this one too!

    My WOW:
