Waiting on Wednesday (49)

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

There's something about islands that I find intriguing, which is what interested me in the following book in the first place. Add to that a race against the clock and what sounds like an interesting romance, and I really, really want to read this book! Hopefully, I won't be stranded on an island when I read it...

Title: Nil
Author: Lynne Matson
Publisher: Henry Holt and Co.
Publishing Date: March 4, 2014

On the mysterious island of Nil, the rules are set. You have exactly 365 days to escape—or you die.

Seventeen-year-old Charley doesn’t know the rules. She doesn’t even know where she is. The last thing she remembers is blacking out, and when she wakes up, she’s naked in an empty rock field.

Lost and alone, Charley finds no sign of other people until she meets Thad, the gorgeous leader of a clan of teenage refugees. Soon Charley learns that leaving the island is harder than she thought . . . and so is falling in love. With Thad’s time running out, Charley realizes that she has to find a way to beat the clock, and quickly.


Are you waiting on a book with an interesting setting this week?

  3. This book sounds terrifying! A little bit Hunger Games but with even more chance of death, I feel.
