Waiting On Wednesday: Independent Study

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted over at Breaking the Spine. It lets us spotlight books that haven't been released, but that we can't wait for. This week I've picked Independent Study by Joelle Charbonneau, which is scheduled to be released on January 7th of 2014.


In the series debut The Testing, sixteen-year-old Cia Vale was chosen by the United Commonwealth government as one of the best and brightest graduates of all the colonies . . . a promising leader in the effort to revitalize postwar civilization. In Independent Study, Cia is a freshman at the University in Tosu City with her hometown sweetheart, Tomas—and though the government has tried to erase her memory of the brutal horrors of The Testing, Cia remembers. Her attempts to expose the ugly truth behind the government’s murderous programs put her—and her loved ones—in a world of danger. But the future of the Commonwealth depends on her.


I personally can't wait for this book to come out. I read an ARC copy of The Testing and I absolutely loved it. It was really dramatic and while it kind of reminded me of The Hunger Games it had it's own feel. It also seemed a lot darker to me. But either way I'm really excited for it to come out so I can see what happens next. And I love the cover!
