Waiting on Wednesday


Eve by Anna Carey
October 4th, 2011 by HarperCollins

The year is 2032, sixteen years after a deadly virus—and the vaccine intended to protect against it—wiped out most of the earth’s population. Wildlife has grown over once recognizable landmarks, and the New America is ruled by a controlling King who will stop at nothing to rebuild the nation—including enslaving its boys and turning its girls into broodmares.

The Eve Trilogy is a breathlessly told story with an unforgettable heroine. Anna Carey has imagined a remarkable and unique world, and brings a compelling new voice to the dystopian genre. Eve offers a haunting glimpse of the global pandemic some scientists say is inevitable, and a world forever altered by its aftermath. 


Anna is no stranger to the literary scene. She is the author of the very popular MG series, The Sloane Sisters. This is her first book geared for older young readers. I'm all for a new dystopian read and the cover is beautiful. Reminds me of Vespertine by Saundra Mitchell.

  6. This one is on my TBR list already. Good pick. The covers reminds me of The Vespertine, as well. However, I'm not a big fan of the pastel green across the top. Cover aside, the story sounds very intriguing and I can't wait to read it.

  14. Sounds interesting, viral epidemic and all... I wonder what broodmares are. And Lauren Kate's written a blurb for it too -- probably my kind of book. Great choice, and you're right about The Vespertine cover. Even the colors on their dresses look similar.

  15. Wow. Really 'Vespertine'-ish! Looks very interesting. I'd never heard of this one before, thanks for bringing it to my attention.

    It's kinda funny how all of these dystopia-type books are becoming the new thing now, huh?
