Waiting on Wednesday is about sharing a book every week you cannot wait to be published. 
This week, I'm waiting on

by Cassandra Rose Clarke

Description from Goodreads

Hope City, Antarctica. The southernmost city in the world, with only a glass dome and a faltering infrastructure to protect its citizens from the freezing, ceaseless winds of the Antarctic wilderness. Within this bell jar four people–some human, some not–will shape the future of the city forever:

Eliana Gomez, a female PI looking for a way to the mainland.

Diego Amitrano, the right-hand man to the gangster who controls the city’s food come winter.

Marianella Luna, an aristocrat with a dangerous secret.

Sofia, an android who has begun to evolve.

But the city is evolving too, and in the heart of the perilous Antarctic winter, factions will clash, dreams will shatter, and that frozen metropolis just might boil over… 

Genre: Young adult, Science Fiction, Dystopia

"Sofia, an android who has begun to evolve."

That catch-phrase alone made me want to read this book, because that is so intriguing. I mean, I can't wait to find out what is meant by this 'evolving' (I'm guessing she is becoming more human) and how this evolving started to happen and what were the triggers. And also considering that the majority of other characters won't probably see her as 'human' so she'll most likely go through discrimination which can be an interesting thing to read about. 

I haven't been this excited for a dystopian novel for a really long time! I was so crazy about all dystopian things when The Hunger Games hype was on its peak, but recently I've found the dystopian novels that I've read quite predictable. And frankly, boring. But. Our Lady of the Ice definitely caught my attention, and I'm hoping this one will resuscitate my love for dystopian novels. But we'll see. I don't want to get too excited either, so that I won't be let down due to my super high expectations.

I also (desperately) want to read Clarke's The Assassin's Curse, and now she is publishing another a really engrossing sounding book. Oh the joy, of books!


  1. This sounds good. A domed city in Antarctica- I'm in. :) DEfinitely has potential- and the android angle does sound interesting. Great pick!

    1. I know, right :) Should be pretty great!

  2. Dystopian books are my thing girl! Great choice this week.

    1. It does, and I think it has so much potential to stand out from the other YA novels that have been published this year :)


You can't see me, but I'm totally doing my happy dance as I read your comment!
