Waiting On Wednesday (48)

This week I'm waiting on....

The Pledge by Kimberly Derting

Words are the most dangerous weapon of all.

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.

Coming November 15th from Margaret K. McElderry
Holy Cheetos this sounds good! Plus, it's Kimberly Derting, who is an awesome author and all-around awesome lady.


  1. Hi i'm a new follower :)
    I love your blog header ! Lots of good books !

    I've read The Body Finder by her. I didn't really like it but I'm still excited for her new book !

  2. This sounds good. Like Marie, I've also read and didn't really like The Body Finder. Well, I just thought it was alright, but I'll most likely read this one still.

  3. Looks good! The cover is both beautiful and creepy!
