Waiting on Wedesday #22

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking The Spine where you can spotlight an upcoming release that you're eagerly anticipating.

This week I'm waiting on....

Gravity by Melissa West
Releases in: October 2012
Add it: On Goodreads.

In the future, only one rule will matter: Don’t. Ever. Peek.

Seventeen-year-old Ari Alexander just broke that rule and saw the last person she expected hovering above her bed--arrogant Jackson Locke, the most popular boy in her school. She expects instant execution or some kind of freak alien punishment, but instead, Jackson issues a challenge: help him, or everyone on Earth will die.

Ari knows she should report him, but everything about Jackson makes her question what she’s been taught about his kind. And against her instincts, she’s falling for him. But Ari isn’t just any girl, and Jackson wants more than her attention. She’s a military legacy who’s been trained by her father and exposed to war strategies and societal information no one can know--especially an alien spy, like Jackson. Giving Jackson the information he needs will betray her father and her country, but keeping silent will start a war.

This sounds like a really exciting sci-fi read! I think the idea is really fun, and fresh without giving to much away. Aliens seem to be taking hold of us in recent time and I think this looks to be a fantastic edition to the genre. Can't wait to read it!

What do you think? Will you be putting this on your to-read list?

And what are you waiting on this week?


  1. I like the cover but I think it’s too simple.

  2. It sounds quite intriguing! I've seen the cover around but I agree with Braiden, it's seems to simple. :/
    But I do like it. :D

    Here's what I'm Waiting on this week!

    1. I like the cover too. It's simple but striking. I'm excited for this too--I think if it lives up to the premise it could be a fantastic read and I cannot wait to try it!

  5. Rachel! Rachel! Rachel! YesyesYES! I SO want this one! And this time it's not even because of the gorgeous cover! Well, maybe jut a tiny bit... But doesn't it sound AMAZING? Yes! Yes it does! Fabulous pick!

    1. Sarah. Sarah. Sarah. LOL!! I think this looks epic too (duh, I picked it ;)) and am dying to read it too. I don't read that many sci-fi books but this one caught me!
