Waiting on Wednesday #19

This week I am Waiting On...

Control by Lydia Kang

Publication Date: December 26th, 2013
An un-putdownable thriller for fans of Uglies

When a crash kills their father and leaves them orphaned, Zel knows she needs to protect her sister, Dyl. But before Zel has a plan, Dyl is taken by strangers using bizarre sensory weapons, and Zel finds herself in a safe house for teens who aren’t like any she’s ever seen before—teens who shouldn't even exist. Using broken-down technology, her new friends’ peculiar gifts, and her own grit, Zel must find a way to get her sister back from the kidnappers who think a powerful secret is encoded in Dyl’s DNA.

A spiraling, intense, romantic story set in 2150—in a world of automatic cars, nightclubs with auditory ecstasy drugs, and guys with four arms—this is about the human genetic “mistakes” that society wants to forget, and the way that outcasts can turn out to be heroes.

“Control blew me away.”—James Dashner, New York Times bestselling author of The Maze Runner trilogy
This sounds so amazing! I am salivating! I am prepared to be blown away when December comes...

What are you Waiting On this week?


  1. Nice! This one's new to me! Cool Cover!

  2. I can't wait for this either. I think what really sold me was that it was set in the future. Also because they quoted James Dashner. I love his Maze Runner. So if he liked it, I might like it as well. Great pick!

  6. Eh, I'm really picky when it comes to this genre, so it's really hard to pick a book. :)
