"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green

Waiting on Wednesday (26)



Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we seriously can’t wait for.

 Here's my pick for the week, that I seriously can't wait for:


Truth by Julia Karr
Release Date: January 19, 2012
Nina Oberon’s life has changed enormously in the last few months. 
When her mother was killed, Nina discovered the truth about her father, the leader of the Resistance. And now she sports the same Governing Council–ordered tattoo of XVI on her wrist that all sixteen-year-old girls have. The one that announces to the world that she is easy prey to predators. 
But Nina won’t be anyone’s stereotype. And when she joins an organization of girls working within the Resistance, she knows that they can put an end to one of the most terrifying secret programs the GC has ever conceived. 
Because the truth always comes out...and the consequences can be deadly.
----------------------------------------------------------------------- 
I LOVED XVI!  It was such an intriguing premise for a dystopian.  Instead of just being sixteen, girls are considered sexteen: in the eyes of the government, legally mature enough to have sex.  XVI does an amazing job setting up this premise that is, from what the blurb says, explored in depth in Truth.  I really really can't wait to dive back into this world, and will probably buy Truth for myself as a birthday present since it comes out the day before my birthday!  If you haven't read XVI yet, you definitely need to grab it before Truth comes out, so you're prepared!
