Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a  weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where bloggers like me can show what I can't wait to read next.

Pia has grown up in a secret laboratory hidden deep in the Amazon rain forest. She was raised by a team of scientists who have created her to be the start of a new immortal race. But on the night of her seventeenth birthday, Pia discovers a hole in the electric fence that surrounds her sterile home—and sneaks outside the compound for the first time in her life.

Free in the jungle, Pia meets Eio, a boy from a nearby village. Together, they embark on a race against time to discover the truth about Pia’s origin—a truth with deadly consequences that will change their lives forever.

Origin is a beautifully told, shocking new way to look at an age-old desire: to live forever, no matter the cost. This is a supremely compelling debut novel that blends the awakening romance of Matched with the mystery and jungle conspiracy of Lost.


Are you as excited as I am for next year's Breathless Reads?  I mean, have you seen the lineup?  These books just look so awesome, and Origin and certainly the one I'm most looking forward to.

First of all, the cover looks pretty interesting, no?  I love all the leaves and colors in it.  I think, with the blank person taking front and center on the cover that it makes it mysterious, and if the synopsis is comparing this book to Lost, then I know that this book will have a thrilling adventure.

I cannot tell you how much I look forward to reading this book.  It seems wild and untamed, an exciting read I'm sure everyone will enjoy.

  1. I love the cover of this one too! I wasn't a big fan of the novel itself (I got an ARC), but I think a lot of other readers will love it! :)
