Waiting on Wednesday (6)


This is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where every Wednesday bloggers highlight a book that they are eagerly anticipating the release of! 



The Pledge
By Kimberly Derting
Release Date: November 15th
Summary: In the violent country of Ludania, the classes are strictly divided by the language they speak. The smallest transgression, like looking a member of a higher class in the eye while they are speaking their native tongue, results in immediate execution. Seventeen-year-old Charlaina has always been able to understand the languages of all classes, and she’s spent her life trying to hide her secret. The only place she can really be free is the drug-fueled underground clubs where people go to shake off the oppressive rules of the world they live in. It's there that she meets a beautiful and mysterious boy named Max who speaks a language she's never heard before . . . and her secret is almost exposed. 

Charlie is intensely attracted to Max, even though she can’t be sure where his real loyalties lie. As the emergency drills give way to real crisis and the violence escalates, it becomes clear that Charlie is the key to something much bigger: her country’s only chance for freedom from the terrible power of a deadly regime.


Isn't the cover of this book so creepy? I love it! And then, reading the summary makes me want to read this book even more. Max sounds so intriguing and I know I'm going to love his story with Charlie. This reminds me of the Hunger Games, with liking someone you can't really trust and living in a world where you fear for your own life. That being said, it sounds amazing! When this book comes out, you can bet I'm going to read it!
