Waiting on Wednesday (29)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where bloggers get to show what makes the hands all grabby.

This week's pick:

Hungry by H.A Swain
Expected Publication: June 3rd, 2014
Publisher: Feiwel and Friends

In the future, food is no longer necessary—until Thalia begins to feel something unfamiliar and uncomfortable. She’s hungry.
In Thalia’s world, there is no need for food—everyone takes medication (or “inocs”) to ward off hunger. It should mean there is no more famine, no more obesity, no more food-related illnesses, and no more war. At least that's what her parents, who work for the company that developed the inocs, say. But when Thalia meets a boy who is part of an underground movement to bring food back, she realizes that most people live a life much different from hers. Worse, Thalia is starting to feel hunger, and so is he—the inocs aren’t working. Together they set out to find the only thing that will quell their hunger: real food.
H. A. Swain delivers an adventure that is both epic and fast-paced. Get ready to be Hungry.

Doesn't this sound interesting? It's a different concept and I can't even imagine what it's like to live without eating food. I'm curious to see what this book is all about.

What is everyone else waiting for this Wednesday?


  1. This sounds like a really different and new idea for a novel! Also, it is actually making me hungry! Lunch-time it is! I hope you enjoy it when you get it! Thanks for sharing :) I hope you have a good rest of the week!

  3. I saw this one the other day and yes it sounds like it could be really good and unique! Dystopians/futuristic stories like this have been a hit or miss for me lately though so let's hope this one is a hit!

  4. Wow I'm loving the cover and the concept! It's definitely a little weird but I could definitely dig it, but I really do love my food. Great pick!

  5. I haven't seen this one until now but I adore that cover! And this novel really seems like a breath of fresh air from all the dystopian novels coming out these days. I'll keep my eye out for this one!

  8. It would be awful to live somewhere where there was no food! I mean, I really love eating. Never being able to taste chocolate again? Terrifying. The cover is really neat too :) Like how the fork tines sort of form a claw.
