Waiting on Wednesday: Surrender

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. Visit Breaking The Spine to see more entries!

This week, I am eagerly waiting on:

Surrender by Elana Johnson (Possession #2)
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Genre: Dystopia, Young Adult
Publication Date: Jun. 5, 2012
The thrilling and seductive sequel to Possession puts love on the line in a dystopian struggle for independent thought. Forbidden love, intoxicating power, and the terror of control…

Raine has always been a good girl. She lives by the rules in Freedom. After all, they are her father’s rules: He’s the Director. It’s because of him that Raine is willing to use her talent—a power so dangerous, no one else is allowed to know about it. Not even her roommate, Vi. All of that changes when Raine falls for Gunner. Raine’s got every reason in the world to stay away from Gunn, but she just can’t. Especially when she discovers his connection to Vi’s boyfriend, Zenn. Raine has never known anyone as heavily brainwashed as Vi. Raine’s father expects her to spy on Vi and report back to him. But Raine is beginning to wonder what Vi knows that her father is so anxious to keep hidden, and what might happen if she helps Vi remember it. She’s even starting to suspect Vi’s secrets might involve Freedom’s newest prisoner, the rebel Jag Barque….

More Jag, please! I loved the ending of the first book because it was so surprising. Now I can't wait to see how Raine helps Vi get out of the sticky situation she's in. Come faster, June! 
Side note: as much as I adore the original covers (all that pretty shimmering white space), these new ones are slowly growing on me...slowly.

What are you waiting on?


  1. Love the cover it sounds interesting but i have to read the first book before i read this one good choice. Click on my name to see my pick.

  2. While I think I preferred the old covers, I think this one's pretty as well. :D Haven't read the first book though, but considering the great things I've heard about it, I should probably do so sometime. ;) Great pick; I hope you'll enjoy it once you get to read it!

  9. I haven't read the first one in this series but I do own it so I guess I had better read it soon. I guess I put it off because everyone was really really upset about the ending.
