Me on Waiting on Wednesday (39)

Waiting on Wednesday is a bunch of weekly fun hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. :)

Title: Under the Never Sky
Author: Veronica Rossi
Release Date: January 3, 2012 (updated release date)
Publisher: HarperCollins

From Goodreads:

Exiled from her home, the enclosed city of Reverie, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland—known as the Death Shop—are slim. If the cannibals don’t get her, the violent energy storms will. She’s been taught that the very air she breathes can kill her. Then Aria meets an outsider named Perry. He’s wild—a savage— and her only hope of staying alive.

Because they must, they will struggle together to survive.

Aria and Perry forge an unlikely alliance—one that will determine the fate of all who live under the never sky.


Yet another weird YA dystopia novel with a creepy wasteland, but they're all still different enough to interest me. They still have that one hook in the summary that makes me want to read it and makes me anxious to read the next in the series, if there is a next in the series.

Sometimes I wonder what will comes next, if contemporary YA will skyrocket, if more and more steampunk will appear, if science-fiction will take over and make us as readers took towards the future, look towards space travel and artificial intelligence and cybernetic implants.
