Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which shines a light on eagerly anticipated upcoming releases.
This week my pick is;
Replica by Lauren Oliver
Release Date: 4th October 2016
Gemma has been in and out of hospitals since she was born. ‘A sickly child’, her lonely life to date has revolved around her home, school and one best friend, Alice. But when she discovers her father’s connection to the top secret Haven research facility, currently hitting the headlines and under siege by religious fanatics, Gemma decides to leave the sanctuary she’s always known to find the institute and determine what is going on there and why her father’s name seems inextricably linked to it.
Amidst the frenzy outside the institute’s walls, Lyra – or number 24 as she is known as at Haven – and a fellow experimental subject known only as 72, manage to escape. Encountering a world they never knew existed outside the walls of their secluded upbringing , they meet Gemma and, as they try to understand Haven’s purpose together, they uncover some earth-shattering secrets that will change the lives of both girls forever…
I’ve heard a lot about Replica recently; both from people who are really excited about the book and people who have an ARC and are already in love with the story. Seeing everyone’s excitement has really kick-started mine. Replica sounds like an amazing book and from what I understand it uses a unique method to tell of Gemma’s and Lyra’s story.
So what does everyone think; is Replica a must on anyone else’s to-read list or are there any other books that you can’t wait for to be released?
