Me on Waiting on Wednesday (114)

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

Title: Inheritance
Author: Malinda Lo
Release Date: September 18, 2013
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers

From Goodreads:

*Spoilers for Adaptation*

The triangular spaceship hovered motionless in the sky above Reese Holloway’s house, as inscrutable as a black hole. It had seemed like a good idea when they were inside: to tell the truth about what happened to them at Area 51. It didn’t seem like such a good idea now.

Reese and David are not normal teens—not since they were adapted with alien DNA by the Imria, an extraterrestrial race that has been secretly visiting Earth for decades. Now everyone is trying to get to them: the government, the Imria, and a mysterious corporation that would do anything for the upper hand against the aliens.

Beyond the web of conspiracies, Reese can’t reconcile her love for David with her feelings for her ex-girlfriend Amber, an Imrian. But her choice between two worlds will play a critical role in determining the future of humanity, the Imria’s place in it, and the inheritance she and David will bring to the universe.

In this gripping sequel to Adaptation, Malinda Lo brings a thoughtful exploration of adolescence, sexuality, and “the other” to a science fiction thriller that is impossible to put down.

I'm so excited for this book. I loved Adaptation, it was a great mix of sci-fi and teen angst and teens exploring sexuality and mystery and thriller. I want people to read the first book, and I want to read this in the fall. And the covers are gorgeous, the previous one with the dark green and this one with the blue. :)


  1. After seeing the cover of this book all I can say is that it's consistent with the design of the first book. I've read reviews of the first book and I'm bumping it on my to read list! as for this one it's going on my to be read pile! awesome pick!
