Waiting on Wednesday 9-12-12





Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine  to share what book you are highly anticipating the release of. I can't believe it's September!! I have to say though that I am glad. I love Fall!! Anyways, I will get on with this.

Last week on twitter someone had linked to a book on Goodreads that looks really awesome! Alice in the Sky With Diamonds by Alice M. Grey. There is no publication information on it and I can't find it on any bookselling sites, but I do know that it sounds freaking awesome and I totally am pining for it!!

Add to Goodreads
No Publishing information available (Goodreads says more info and website will be added soon.)

Overview

Seventeen year old Alice Grey wakes up in what looks like an abandoned mental institution with a blade in her hand, not remembering who she is or what happened to her. There is a tattoo on her arm that says, 'Don't trust yourself' When Alice steps outside for help, she realizes that the world has ended while she was asleep.

She is the only one left alive ... in the world.

But Alice gets curiouser and curiouser about that peach tea flavor on her lips, the hallucinating dreams she has about a mad boy, the drawings of her on the walls that says 'mad and wanted', the purple sky of apocalypse, the attacking pigeons, and the sure feeling inside her heart that she belongs to someone and that she is -- or once was -- in love.

Alice Grey, all alone in a world with no future, is determined to face the demons that control the abandoned streets at night, the hallucinations, to find the one she loves but can't remember and ask him what really happened to the world while she was asleep. And the most important question of all, "Who in the world am I?"

Or is it that Alice has gone mad in wonderland where those who have survived the apocalypse are all mad here?



Dude!! I don't know about you, but this sounds epically awesome and I will be stalking Goodreads for more info! I love this cover, so I hope they don't change it!! Did anyone else play that Alice game on PC back in the day? You know the one where she was in the asylum and stuff  and she wakes up with a knife and it's like a crazy evil world? No? Okay well that game kicked ass and this book reminds me of that. I also have Alice Madness Returns, but my PC sucks and won't play it. Anyways, my point is this book sounds just like that game and I NEED to have it!!! Must own this book!!

So what do you think? I think I would sell a limb or two to get my hands on this right now!! Link me to your post and I will check it out. :)
