Waiting is a weekly post that highlights upcoming books bloggers are excited to read. It is hosted over at Breaking the Spine.
So for what upcoming book am I excited? My pick for this week would be: Taken by Erin Bowman:
There are no men in Claysoot. There are boys—but every one of them vanishes at midnight on his eighteenth birthday. The ground shakes, the wind howls, a blinding light descends...and he’s gone.To be published by Harperteen.
They call it the Heist.
Gray Weathersby’s eighteenth birthday is mere months away, and he’s prepared to meet his fate–until he finds a strange note from his mother and starts to question everything he’s been raised to accept: the Council leaders and their obvious secrets. The Heist itself. And what lies beyond the Wall that surrounds Claysoot–a structure that no one can cross and survive.
Climbing the Wall is suicide, but what comes after the Heist could be worse. Should he sit back and wait to be taken–or risk everything on the hope of the other side?

Such a shame I have to wait until april next year before it hits shelves. It sounds really exciting and I really like the futuristic cover with the reflection of the tree.
For what upcoming books are you excited? Will you check this one out?
