Waiting on Wednesday (42)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we share the books that we're eagerly awaiting the release of. This week:
Possession by Elana Johnson
Release Date: June 7th, 2011
Synopsis from Goodreads:
Vi knows the Rule: Girls don't walk with boys, and they never even think about kissing them. But no one makes Vi want to break the Rules more than Zenn...and since the Thinkers have chosen him as Vi's future match, how much trouble can one kiss cause? The Thinkers may have brainwashed the rest of the population, but Vi is determined to think for herself.

But the Thinkers are unusually persuasive, and they're set on convincing Vi to become one of them...starting by brainwashing Zenn. Vi can't leave Zenn in the Thinkers' hands, but she's wary of joining the rebellion, especially since that means teaming up with Jag. Jag is egotistical, charismatic, and dangerous--everything Zenn's not. Vi can't quite trust Jag and can't quite resist him, but she also can't give up on Zenn.

This is a game of control or be controlled. And Vi has no choice but to play.
My Thoughts: It sounds like Matched and Uglies had a baby. A beautiful baby. Seriously, I'm really, really loving the cover. The blue? Gorgeous.
What are you waiting on?


  1. I recently heard about this one and am excited for it too! Great pick.

  2. Ha I was thinking the same thing! Except I was thinking more like Matched + Uglies + Candor = Possession. And that cover has got the whole object trapped inside a thing surrounded by nothing as the central image with the title in all caps thing. The more I look at it, the more Possession looks like it could be the blue cover sister of Matched. Just sayin.

  3. Bwa! First, how did I miss this? Second, Matched and Uglies had a baby!! LOL! That is fabulous. I'll let you decide when you read it. I hope you like it. :)


Your comments make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside, keep them coming!
