Waiting on Wednesday: Losing Lila


Time for another amazing Wednesday! :)

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by the awesome Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating! This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is: 

Losing Lila by Sarah Alderson
Release Date: August 2, 2012
Series: Lila #2 
Links: Goodreads | Amazon | Amazon CA | The Book Depository
Alex and Lila are on the run, desperately trying to stay one step ahead of the Unit, which somehow is managing to track their every move. Whilst Alex is determined to keep Lila safe and her ability secret at any cost, Lila’s only thought is of finding a way back to California so that she can rescue her brother and mother from the military base where they’re being held.

Struggling to control both her growing power and her deepening feelings for Alex, Lila decides the time has finally come to stop running and start fighting. Together with Alex, Demos, and the people she’s come to think of as family, Lila plans not just to save her brother and mother, but to completely destroy the Unit and everything it stands for.

But the plan requires Lila to return alone to California, make friends with the enemy, and to risk losing everything - Alex, her family, and even her life.

(summary taken from Goodreads)
ALEX!! Gosh, there are SO many reasons to want this book! I'm completely in love with all of the characters and basically everything that Sarah Alderson writes. I'm on my hands and knees to figure out what's going to happen with some of my favourite characters next! :)

And if you haven't read the first book yet... I might've sneakily added in A LINK TO HUNTING LILA ON GOODREADS on this post. You'll never know ;)

WHAT BOOK ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

  23. I'm almost finished with Nevemore by Kelly Creagh, so I'm sooo ready for Enshadowed, the sequel, and it comes out soon enough that I should be able to read it right away. LOL I'm so bad with series/sequels.

    I didn't know that Losing Lila was the second book. Good to know! Sounds like an interesting read.

  37. How could I haven't read Hunting Lila yet?? There must be something really wrong with me! I prefer the cover of Hunting Lila, but Losing Lila has GORGEOUS cover too! <3 Love the way she seems to run from something and the wire fence behind! <3 I recently heard that Sarah Alderson lives in Bali too, so I might get lucky and meet her someday! xD
