Waiting on Wednesday (9)


Waiting on Wednesday weekly event that spotlights upcoming-releases that bloggers are most excited about.  This week’s I-can’t-wait book is: Champion by Marie Lu.  Champion will be released on November 5, 2013 by Putnam Juvenile.


About the Book

The explosive finale to Marie Lu’s New York Times bestselling LEGEND trilogy.

He is a Legend.
She is a Prodigy.
Who will be Champion?

June and Day have sacrificed so much for the people of the Republic—and each other—and now their country is on the brink of a new existence. June is back in the good graces of the Republic, working within the government’s elite circles as Princeps Elect while Day has been assigned a high level military position. But neither could have predicted the circumstances that will reunite them once again. Just when a peace treaty is imminent, a plague outbreak causes panic in the Colonies, and war threatens the Republic’s border cities. This new strain of plague is deadlier than ever, and June is the only one who knows the key to her country’s defense. But saving the lives of thousands will mean asking the one she loves to give up everything he has. With heart-pounding action and suspense, Marie Lu’s bestselling trilogy draws to a stunning conclusion. (From Goodreads.com)

Why I’m Waiting

Legend was just a really great book.  It was interesting to see two people from such different backgrounds within the dystopian society Marie Lu created.  And Prodigy was just heart-wrenching.  It was definitely an unexpected twist after everything that June and Day went through.  So, yeah, I am (im)patiently waiting on Champion.  The cover is brilliant and I know this book, if anything like the others, will come to a epic conclusion.

About the Author


From Goodreads: “I write young adult novels, and have a special love for dystopian books. Ironically, I was born in 1984. Before becoming a full-time writer, I was an Art Director at a video game company. Now I shuffle around at home and talk to myself a lot. 

I graduated from the University of Southern California in ’06 and currently live in LA, where I spend my time stuck on the freeways.”

  1. Oh gosh yes. I really loved Legend and Prodigy so I can’t wait for this one either. Nice choice and thanks for stopping by my blog earlier. 🙂

  2. YAY CHAMPION! I actually haven’t read Prodigy because I heard some sad things about the end. It seems that with every second book in the series (like, The Crown of Embers by Rae Carson, Fractured by Sarah Fine), the author decides to kill an important character, or split up the two protagonists, or something. I don’t know if that’s the case with Prodigy, but agghhh. I hope Champion is amazing though! 🙂

  3. I need to read this series. I feel like I say that in blog comments all the time (maybe even on your blog before?), but I just haven’t done it.

    Thanks for stopping by my WoW post a few days ago, sorry I’m just getting around to commenting on your blog now (it was the last week of the semester and things were a little crazy!).

    • I say that all the time, haha, so don’t feel bad.

      And no worries, as a professional college student (in my second graduate program now), I completely understand!

Lovely words from lovely people!
