Waiting on Wednesday (9)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine 
that showcases upcoming releases that people are very much anticipating.

This is a book that I want very much. The cover and synopsis was very, very recently revealed--finally! I've been waiting and waiting to be able to wait on this book. Yes, you have to wait a year for it. But it will be worth it! (I mean, just look at that cover!) So. Here it is!

Title: The Dollhouse Asylum
Author: Mary Gray
Publisher: Spencer Hill Press
Publishing Date: October 22, 2013

A virus that had once been contained has returned, and soon no place will be left untouched by its destruction. But when seventeen-year-old Cheyenne wakes up in Elysian Fields--a subdivision cut off from the world and its monster-creating virus--she is thrilled to have a chance at survival.
At first, Elysian Fields,with its beautiful houses and manicured lawns, is perfect. Teo Richardson, the older man who stole Cheyenne's heart, built it so they could be together. But when Teo tells Cheyenne there are tests that she and seven other couples must pass to be worthy of salvation, Cheyenne begins to question the perfection of his world.
The people they were before are gone. Cheyenne is now "Persephone," and each couple has been re-named to reflect the most tragic romances ever told. Everyone is fighting to pass the test, to remain in Elysian Fields. Teo dresses them up, tells them when to move and how to act, and in order to pass the test, they must play along.
If they play it right, then they'll be safe.
But if they play it wrong, they'll die.

Eye-grabbing and stunning, isn't it? And the synopsis--couples portraying tragic literary couples? How cool is that? I want this book. You want this book. We all want this book. So you should add it on Goodreads (keep it on your radar) and wait on it like I am.

What about you? What are you waiting on? Tell me in the comments!
