Waiting on Wednesday: Rebel Heart by Moira Young

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.  Its purpose is to spotlight eagerly-anticipated upcoming releases.

This week I’m eagerly awaiting:

Rebel Heart by Moira Young

Expected Release Date: October 30, 2012

The Tonton have been defeated. Lugh has been rescued.
The heartstone has brought Saba and Jack together.
Now, Saba and her family head west to meet him and start a new life. All should be well.
But shadows of the dead are stalking Saba.
And another kind of shadow is creeping over the dustlands.
Then a messenger shows up.
With news of Jack.

You guys, I can’t tell you how much I hate the title of this book.  I hate it, and not just because it’s also the title of Bebe Buell’s unintentionally hilarious memoir.  There’s something about it that is so generic, and so…unlike the title of the first book in Young’s trilogy.  I loved, loved, loved Blood Red Road…and both the title and the cover of the sequel are not doing it for me.  That being said, I’m still super excited to continue Saba’s journey and will definitely be checking this one out.  I just…this feels like a movie poster already, you know?

Also, I call total bullshit on the blurb.  Not only is that tacky, but it’s patently untrue.

What are you waiting on this week?

    1. Haha, I wouldn’t want a blurb from Hollywood Crush, either. I hope you do read the first one–once you get into Saba’s voice, there’s no turning back!
