Waiting on Wednesday (19)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Breaking the Spine and it's used to showcase the upcoming releases we're excited about.


The cover is more than gorgeous. The summary sounds amazing. I just can't not be waiting for this! I usually don't read much science-fiction, but since I read The Host by Stephanie Meyer that I'm more than curious about that genre. And since technology has always fascinated me, I'm more than excited for Glitch to come out!


Glitch (Glitch #1) by Heather Anastasiu
In the Community, there is no more pain or war. Implanted computer chips have wiped humanity clean of destructive emotions, and thoughts are replaced by a feed from the Link network. 
When Zoe starts to malfunction (or “glitch”), she suddenly begins having her own thoughts, feelings, and identity. Any anomalies must be immediately reported and repaired, but Zoe has a secret so dark it will mean certain deactivation if she is caught: her glitches have given her uncontrollable telekinetic powers.
As Zoe struggles to control her abilities and stay hidden, she meets other glitchers including Max, who can disguise his appearance, and Adrien, who has visions of the future. Both boys introduce Zoe to feelings that are entirely new. Together, this growing band of glitchers must find a way to free themselves from the controlling hands of the Community before they’re caught and deactivated, or worse.
In this action-packed debut, Glitch begins an exciting new young adult trilogy.

A mi la ciencia ficción me produce curiosidad por un lado, pero por otro a veces me da como un poco de miedete que sean demasiado raros... es una cosa rara jaja! Pero este tiene buena pinta, los juveniles me suelen gustar! :D
¡Un beso!
