[Meme] Waiting On Wednesday: Once

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Title: Once
Author: Anna Carey
Publisher: HarperCollins
Publication Date: July 3, 2012


Sixteen years have passed since a deadly virus wiped out most of the Earth’s population. After learning of the terrifying part she and her classmates were fated to play in the rebuilding of New America, eighteen-year-old Eve fled to the wilds and Califia, a haven for women determined to live outside the oppressive rule of the king of New America. However, her freedom came at a price: she was forced to leave Caleb, the boy she loves, wounded and alone at the city gates. Eve quickly learns that Califia may not be as safe as it seems and soon finds herself in the City of Sand and the palace of the king. There she uncovers the real reason he was so intent on her capture, and the unbelievable role he intends her to fill. When she is finally reunited with Caleb, they will enact a plan as daring as it is dangerous. But will Eve once again risk everything—her freedom, her life—for love?

Brimming with danger and star-crossed romance, and featuring a vivid dystopian landscape, this electrifying follow-up to Eve, which bestselling author Lauren Kate called “a gripping, unforgettable adventure—and a fresh look at what it means to love” is sure to appeal to fans who crave the high-stakes adventure of The Hunger Games and the irresistible love story of Romeo and Juliet.

This book releases July 3rd and is the second book in the Eve series. Some might remember that although I liked the first book, Eve, I did not LOVE it...a lot was left wanting, especially with Eve's character. I have been informed by a few fellow bloggers that this second book is much better than the first, so I am willing to read it...especially since there are still so many unanswered questions!

The third book in the series, Rise, just recently had it's cover revealed, which seems such an unfair tease since the second one isn't even out yet!

What book are you waiting for right now?


  1. I was not impressed by the reviews I saw of the first in the series, so I didn't end up reading it - but I'm glad to hear it gets better (or that you've heard that!). Hope you enjoy it.

    Thanks for visiting my WoW today!

  2. I've been thinking about reading this series... But with all the mix reviews I'm not sure if I'm going to like them. But I have to say that I think the covers are gorgeous :D

    Thanks for passing by my blog :3 Hugs!

    1. You are very welcome! Thanks for stopping by in return!

  3. Hmmm...haven't read Eve yet but it did catch my eye in the bookstore...Anyways, I'll go check it out.

    My WoW

    1. It's an OK read, don't get me wrong. I was just left utterly frustrated by the main character more often than I felt I should have been. Here's hoping she matures like Meghan did in the last few books of the Iron Fey series.

  4. Eve wasn't my absolute favourite book but I am in love with the covers of this series. Especially Rise! It's gorgeous!

    1. Yes, Eve left a lot to be desired, but I am enjoying Once much more. I love the cover for once, especially now that I am an a part where it makes sense to Thanks for stopping by!
