Waiting on Wednesday #4


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine

My WoW this week is The Pledge, which is good because I don't have to wait too long for it. It comes out on Tuesday 11/15/11

  • Pub. Date: November 2011
  • Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry Books
  • Format: Hardcover , 336pp 
Overview from B&N
In the violent country of Ludania, the language you speak determines what class you are, and there are harsh punishments if you forget your place—looking a member of a higher class in the eye can result in immediate execution. Seventeen-year-old Charlaina (Charlie for short) can understand all languages, a dangerous ability she’s been hiding her whole life. Her only place of release is the drug-filled underground club scene, where people go to shake off the oppressive rules of the world they live in. There, she meets a beautiful and mysterious boy who speaks a language she’s never heard, and her secret is almost exposed. Through a series of violent upheavals, it becomes clear that Charlie herself is the key to forcing out the oppressive power structure of her kingdom….

This book just sounds really awesome, and I have heard great reviews on it. I have this pre-ordered and am excitedly waiting for Tuesday for it to come out.

  2. I hope so too. It's always so disappointing when you are looking forward to something and it just doesn't do it for you.
