Waiting on Wednesday #58!

Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog! I'm Genni, and today I'll be participating in Waiting on Wednesday, and meme originally created by Jill @ Breaking the Spine. Jill hasn't been active for a while, so Tressa @ Wishful Endings has adopted it! If you see posts by the name of "Can't Wait Wednesday," it's the same thing!

The book I'm looking forward to this week is Nyxia Unleashed by Scott Reintgen!

Getting to Eden brought Emmett and his crewmates one step closer to their promised fortune. But surviving Eden may be the biggest reward of all. Discover book two in the trilogy Marie Lu called, “a high-octance thriller.”

Emmett Atwater thought Babel’s game sounded easy. Get points. Get paid. Go home. But it didn’t take long for him to learn that Babel’s competition was full of broken promises, none darker or more damaging than the last one.

Now Emmett and the rest of the Genesis survivors must rally and forge their own path through a new world. Their mission from Babel is simple: extract nyxia, the most valuable material in the universe, and play nice with the indigenous Adamite population.

But Emmett and the others quickly realize they are caught between two powerful forces—Babel and the Adamites—with clashing desires. Will the Genesis team make it out alive before it’s too late?

Why I'm Waiting

Nyxia was one of my favorite books of 2017, and I cannot wait to read this one! I was completely thrilled while reading Nyxia, and the ending left me highly anticipating this sequel. Also, Reintgen is from the same state (NC!), and he did a competition with the high schools from my county. The high school I graduated from won the competition, so I'm looking forward to seeing the shout out in this sequel!!

Check out my review of Nyxia here! I highly recommend it. :)

Have you read Nyxia and are looking forward to the sequel?

Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you soon with another post!

Happy Reading!

    1. Thanks Ronyell! I highly recommend the first book. :)

  3. Pretty cover and I hope you enjoy this sequel.

    1. Thank you Barb! And I agree, the cover is gorgeous. :)

  4. I still haven't had time to read the first book. Maybe I'll wait till this one is released so I can read them back to back without waiting.
    Great choice. I hope you have a lovely week :)

    1. I would say that's a great idea! The book ends on a rather huge cliffhanger, so it would have been amazing to read this right after.

      Thank you Aneta! You as well. :D

  5. I love this cover! I didn't read Nyxia but I remember seeing it around and being curious about it. I hope you enjoy this new book when you get the chance to read it!

    Have a lovely week, Genni. =)

    Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!

    1. I do too! I think it's even better than the first. :) Thank you Alyssa! If you do read it, I suggest going all at once. The first book does end of such a great cliffhanger!

      You too Alyssa!

  6. This is totally new to me. Sounds like a Sci-fi novel. Hope you´ll enjoy your pick & happy reading.
