"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's WoW selection is...

Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Goodreads
Title:  Prodigy
Author:  Marie Lu
Series:  2nd book in the Legend series
Publisher:  Putnam Juvenile, an imprint of Penguin
Publication Date:  January 29, 2013

The Elector Primo of the Republic has died, with his son assuming power over what’s left of the USA’s West Coast as it teeters on full-blown chaos. June and Day join up with Patriot rebels so they can rescue Day’s brother and head east for the Colonies. In order to help, though, the rebels want June and Day to kill the new Elector, who may pose an even greater threat than his father.

Why I'm waiting:  Did you read Legend?!?  Did you not see how June and Day contrasted and complemented each other?  Did you not see that beautiful new cover, sans girl in pretty dress?!?  That's what I thought. You missed out when Legend was released at the end of last year, and now you need to catch up just so you can hurry and wait with the rest of us until 2013.  Yes.  You read that right.  2013Oy vey.  Luckily, there is no shortage of awesome books between now and then, so I should be able to occupy myself while I endure that mind-boggling wait.  Okay...easier said than done, but I'll manage somehow...

What book has your feathers in a ruffle this week? :P


  1. Gah! I haven't even read the first one! Seems like I gotta find it in my local book store this weekend. Awesome pick! :D

  3. Nice pick! I wasnt a huge fan of Legend, but I think everyone else was. That's a long wait between books. The time will fly!
    Thanks for sharing!

  5. Hi have the first one, signed even, but I have not had the chance to read it... Oy. BUT I am still pining for Prodigy, just like you!! Isn't that cover fantastic? I love the stenciled spray effect. And I wonder what caused them to change the name from Patriot to Prodigy. I am sure that we will find out when we read it!!

    And, wahoo! There is still plenty of time to read Legend before 2013. I already know I will probably love it. Thanks for sharing!

  6. This is one I am definitely Waiting on as well. Thanks for stopping by My WoW and sharing.

  7. I have heard so many great things about Marie Lu’s Legend, but I have never actually read it before. So, I guess that is good news that I have until 2013 to catch up! Surely, by next January I can have the first book read and be ready for this one! Anyway, the cover sure does looks awesome! Thanks for sharing your pick!

  8. I had a big problem with Legend, the first book in series. I finished it in one sitting and I loved the story and all, but I still didn't adore it. It wasn't amazing or sth and I can't figure out why. -.- I liked it enough though to read the next, I hope it'll be better.

  9. I've seen a few people share this for their WoW now. I can see why though! I still haven't read Legend myself but I've heard really great things about it and this one sounds good too. I should really get reading Legend before this one comes out! Anyway, thanks for sharing.

    P.S. I'm a new follower here. Nice to meet you! :)

  10. So I've had Legend sitting on my shelf for a few months now and I still haven't read it! *ashamed* I've heard that it's really good so I should probably read it before the second one comes out! Great pick this week :) Check out my WOW:

  12. 2013?! Wow... Looks like I have some time to read Legend then. There's so many books out there right now that I really, really want to read and cannot believe I've waited so long to read. This is one of them... Great highlight (and reminder to me) on the second one!

    Thanks for visiting my WoW.

  13. Oh, I still need to read Legend, and you've just reminded me of that!

    Wonderful choice, and it was a pleasure to have you at Sparkles and Lightning!
