"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
So for those of you who know me, you know that I absolutely adore a good dystopian. Now couple that with a GORGEOUS cover (yeah, yeah, I totally judge my books by their covers) and well, you had me at hello! So today, let me introduce you to one that looks to be Ah-Maz-Ing...Perfected by Kate Jarvik that releases July 1st!
Just look at this cover...*drools* I absolutely love the idea behind this plot! Future society where people are pets...I know we've read so many about clones, and these strong girls who are taught to believe they're one thing when they really have the potential to be so much more! This one sounds almost Sci-Fi meets dystopian, meshed with fancy dresses! Eeee, right up my alley! I cannot wait to dive into this one!
Summary courtesy of Goodreads:
I was bred to be the perfect pet. I was bred for my beauty and grace, to be a showpiece, an ornament to sit upon the couch, to sing, to dance, to play the piano and paint. I was bred to willingly put my owner's happiness before my own.Until Penn. The handsome and rebellious son of the congressman who owns me, he's the only person who's seen past my perfect exterior to the girl underneath. Falling for him is forbidden. Falling for him is freeing.But there's a dark underworld lurking beneath my pampered life. The only thing more dangerous than staying with Penn's family is escaping it, because if I fail, I face a fate far worse than death...
For fans of Kiera Cass's Selection series and Lauren DeStefano's Chemical Garden series, Perfected is a chilling look at what it means to be human, as well as a stunning celebration of the power of love to set us free, wrapped in a glamorous—and dangerous—bow.
