Waiting on Wednesday: The Testing

WoW is weekly meme created by Jill at Breaking The Spine in which bloggers can share books they're excited to get soon :)
The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau
Keep your friends close and your enemies closer. Isn’t that what they say? But how close is too close when they may be one in the same?
The Seven Stages War left much of the planet a charred wasteland. The future belongs to the next generation’s chosen few who must rebuild it. But to enter this elite group, candidates must first pass The Testing—their one chance at a college education and a rewarding career.
Cia Vale is honored to be chosen as a Testing candidate; eager to prove her worthiness as a University student and future leader of the United Commonwealth. But on the eve of her departure, her father’s advice hints at a darker side to her upcoming studies--trust no one.
But surely she can trust Tomas, her handsome childhood friend who offers an alliance? Tomas, who seems to care more about her with the passing of every grueling (and deadly) day of the Testing. To survive, Cia must choose: love without truth or life without trust.

It's time for a great dystopian, don't you think?
and I'm hoping The Testing will deliver because I need to fall back in love with that genre.

AND I'm always up for "handsome childhood friends" :D

  1. I think this one sounds really great-I love stories that involve formal testing so I hope that plays as big a role as it sounds like it will play.


I love your beautiful face!
