Waiting on Wednesday (30)

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

I loved this author's debut, which came out last fall. I've heard she had a new book in the works, and just this week its synopsis and cover were announced. And my gosh, THAT COVER. I kind of want to live in it. It's so pretty and just ahhh I love it. (And I loved her other book's cover, too.) So this week I'm waiting on the awesome sounding sci-fi novel...

Title: Vitro
Author: Jessica Khoury
Publisher: Razorbill
Publishing Date: January 14, 2014
Pages: 400

On a remote island in the Pacific, Corpus scientists have taken test tube embryos and given them life. These beings--the Vitros--have knowledge and abilities most humans can only dream of. But they also have one enormous flaw.

Sophie Crue is determined to visit Skin Island and find her mother, a scientist who left Sophie behind years ago. She enlists hunky charter pilot Jim Julien to take her there. But once on the island, Sophie and Jim encounter more than they bargained for, including a charming, brilliant Vitro named Nicholas and an innocent, newly awoken one named Lux.

In a race for their lives, Sophie and Jim are about to discover what happens when science stretches too far beyond its reach.

What are you waiting on this week?

  7. This one sounds so good and strange and awesome! I wanna read it now too!

  8. I still need to read Origin (I think that was the title of the first one?) So many books start to run together after a while! Hoping you enjoy this one.

  9. I haven't read her other book yet, but I also picked this one this week. It sounds freaking amazing :D!


  10. I honestly have never heard of this before, but that cover is enticing. I may have to look into this a little further.

  11. I really like this cover too-I have a thing for white covers and then there's just that pop of color that is so eye-catching. Hope the contents are as enthralling!
