Waiting on Wednesday #68

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 Life L1k3 by Jay Kristoff!

On an island junkyard beneath a sky that glows with radiation, a deadly secret lies buried in the scrap.

Seventeen-year-old Eve isn't looking for trouble--she's too busy looking over her shoulder. The robot gladiator she spent months building has been reduced to a smoking wreck, she's on the local gangster's wanted list, and the only thing keeping her grandpa alive is the money she just lost to the bookies. Worst of all, she's discovered she can somehow destroy machines with the power of her mind, and a bunch of puritanical fanatics are building a coffin her size because of it.

If she's ever had a worse day, Eve can't remember it. The problem is, Eve has had a worse day--one that lingers in her nightmares and the cybernetic implant where her memories used to be. Her discovery of a handsome android named Ezekiel--called a "Lifelike" because they resemble humans--will bring her world crashing down and make her question whether her entire life is a lie.

With her best friend Lemon Fresh and her robotic sidekick Cricket in tow, Eve will trek across deserts of glass, battle unkillable bots, and infiltrate towering megacities to save the ones she loves... and learn the truth about the bloody secrets of her past.

Here are some stats about the book:
Genre - YA Science Fiction
Release Date - May 29, 2018
Publisher - Knopf Books for Young Readers
Pages - 416
Why I'm Waiting
It's not secret that I love young adult science fiction! I love the summary, but I'm actually a bit hesitant to read this. I adore the Illuminae series, but I couldn't get through Nevernight by Jay Kristoff. I hope that I have better luck with this one! I'll be looking at reviews until I pick it up, though.

Are you looking forward to Life L1k3?

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

Happy Reading!

    1. Here's hoping the reviews are positive! I wouldn't be surprised if they are though; Jay Kristoff is so well loved!

  2. OOh nice! Seeing a lot of hype for this one! Hope you love it as well!
