Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selections are:

Incarceron
By Catherine Fisher
Release Date: January 29, 2010

Synopsis: Incarceron -- a futuristic prison, sealed from view, where the descendants of the original prisoners live in a dark world torn by rivalry and savagery. It is a terrifying mix of high technology -- a living building which pervades the novel as an ever-watchful, ever-vengeful character, and a typical medieval torture chamber -- chains, great halls, dungeons. A young prisoner, Finn, has haunting visions of an earlier life, and cannot believe he was born here and has always been here. In the outer world, Claudia, daughter of the Warden of Incarceron, is trapped in her own form of prison -- a futuristic world constructed beautifully to look like a past era, an imminent marriage she dreads. She knows nothing of Incarceron, except that it exists. But there comes a moment when Finn, inside Incarceron, and Claudia, outside, simultaneously find a device -- a crystal key, through which they can talk to each other. And so the plan for Finn's escape is born

Why I’m Waiting: Doesn’t this just sound like an amazing plot? The setting sounds intriguing, and maybe there will be a little love interst between Finn and Claudia, and romance is always a good thing in my book. It looks like this may have been published back in 2007, but is now being re-published in hardcover. I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy.

  4. I came here from Jill's waiting on Wednesday post, it's interesting to see how everybody has an upcoming new release that they want to read, and every body is so different. I don't have any now and I won't have any in 2010 because I have bought too many books in the past and I haven't caught up with my reading. I started my blog because I wanted to start documenting all the books that I bought and they are sitting in my house suffocating me.... I am slowly documenting them in the wish list section of my blog, so I can look at it and be reminded everyday that I have all these books lying in my shelf, underneath my bed, in my closet, on my dining table and kitchen counter that I had not even opened....I think I must have obsessive book buying behavior...
