Waiting on…The Glass Arrow by Kristen Simmons

Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which we share a book that we are eagerly anticipating!

Publisher: Tor Teen
Release Date:
February 10, 2015
Synopsis from Goodreads:

The Handmaid’s Tale meets Blood Red Road in Glass Arrow, the story of Aya, who lives with a small group of women on the run from the men who hunt them, men who want to auction off breeding rights to the highest bidder.

In a world where females are scarce and are hunted, then bought and sold at market for their breeding rights, 15-year old Aya has learned how to hide. With a ragtag bunch of other women and girls, she has successfully avoided capture and eked out a nomadic but free existence in the mountains. But when Aya’s luck runs out and she’s caught by a group of businessmen on a hunting expedition, fighting to survive takes on a whole new meaning.

why i can't wait

This book sounds like it has one of my favorite things in YA books these days: kick butt heroines who don’t take anyone else’s BS. The whole idea of female being “scarce” as the synopsis says is really creepy, and scary to me, being that I’m a girl. I can tell that this one will be filled with action, but chilling all the same.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

  1. This book sounds like it could be good, but I’m too afraid to read it. I’ll have to wait for your review. 😉 Have you read the Handmaidens Tale? I haven’t, but I’ve heard good things about it. The subject matter scares me though.

I'd love to hear what you have to say!
