Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.

This week's pick is Eve by Anna Carey, coming October 4 from Harper Teen.

Summary: The year is 2032, sixteen years after a deadly virus—and the vaccine intended to protect against it—wiped out most of the earth’s population. The night before eighteen-year-old Eve’s graduation from her all-girls school she discovers what really happens to new graduates, and the horrifying fate that awaits her.

Fleeing the only home she’s ever known, Eve sets off on a long, treacherous journey, searching for a place she can survive. Along the way she encounters Caleb, a rough, rebellious boy living in the wild. Separated from men her whole life, Eve has been taught to fear them, but Caleb slowly wins her trust...and her heart. He promises to protect her, but when soldiers begin hunting them, Eve must choose between true love and her life.

My Thoughts: Epidemics, etc, are always something that piques my interest in books. So set something after a virus AND its vaccine have done major damage, and throw in some twisted fate after graduation? I'm hooked. I totally want to know what that fate is, the truth behind the virus (man made, perhaps?), and I want to know what Eve finds on the way. The fact that there's a hot boy totally helps. The fact that he's rebellious helps more. And I think this is a romantic angle everyone can get behind, because if he's out int he wild, how much contact with girls has he had? I think this romance will be fiery and sweet at the same time, but I also really do love the life versus love stories. So often, even in the "real world" that is a choice people have to make, and I love watching characters endure it. Then there's the cover,  creepy with the bridge and the fogginess as the colors fade, yet potentially hopeful with the actual pastel colors. Even more, I love that it really does look as though the girl is running, clearly to something uncertain, yet going all the same.


  1. I do like that cover and it sounds like something different.
