Hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, Waiting on Wednesday showcases the books we're lusting after. Get ready to load up your TBR!


Orleans by Sherri L. Smith

Expected Publication: 7 March 2013 by Putnam Juvenile

Synopsis:

First came the storms.
Then came the Fever.
And the Wall.

After a string of devastating hurricanes and a severe outbreak of Delta Fever, the Gulf Coast has been quarantined. Years later, residents of the Outer States are under the assumption that life in the Delta is all but extinct… but in reality, a new primitive society has been born.

Fen de la Guerre is living with the O-Positive blood tribe in the Delta when they are ambushed. Left with her tribe leader’s newborn, Fen is determined to get the baby to a better life over the wall before her blood becomes tainted. Fen meets Daniel, a scientist from the Outer States who has snuck into the Delta illegally. Brought together by chance, kept together by danger, Fen and Daniel navigate the wasteland of Orleans. In the end, they are each other’s last hope for survival.


Why I'm Waiting

Hello my post-apocalyptic, dystopian little friend! And a little birdy (a.k.a Christina from A Reader of Fictions) tells me that there's no romance and excellent world building. So excited for this one!

What are YOU waiting on this week?

  2. I almost chose Orleans this week. I'm really looking forward to this book, especially considering it's set in a Post Katrina style landscape so it will be easy imagining details about the world.

    1. I don't mind romance, but sometimes it's so refreshing to have a book without it!

  6. YAY! Finally one sans romance --- I totally dig it. And the premise sounds super interesting. Adding it to my TBR right now.

    Oh! Oh! Oh! And I just got my audio copy of the final book in J.L. Bourne's Armageddon series. SO EXCITED!!!!

    1. Romance is not a pre-requisite - why are we the only ones that know this?!

      Oh man, I have to get started on that one!

  8. Oh Kat! I am getting this one...it sounds so good. And I like that it doesn't have romance. Nothing wrong with a little romance but sometimes none is just better! Thanks for the share.
