WoW Pick of the Week



Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It is a chance to share those new releases were are super anxious to get our hands on and read.

I only just recently read Red Rising and adored it, way more than I was expecting too so of course I am now eagerly awaiting the next book Golden Son. I love how quickly I was wrapped up in the idea of the different colors and stations and even more so with Darrow himself.  His battle was a long one and a hard one and after the ending of book one, I can't see what is in store for him next. 





Release Date: January 13, 2015

Book Description:

With shades of The Hunger Games, Ender’s Game, and Game of Thrones, debut author Pierce Brown’s genre-defying epic Red Rising hit the ground running and wasted no time becoming a sensation. Golden Son continues the stunning saga of Darrow, a rebel forged by tragedy, battling to lead his oppressed people to freedom from the overlords of a brutal elitist future built on lies. Now fully embedded among the Gold ruling class, Darrow continues his work to bring down Society from within. A life-or-death tale of vengeance with an unforgettable hero at its heart, Golden Son guarantees Pierce Brown’s continuing status as one of fiction’s most exciting new voices.



Have you tried this dystopian yet? If so, what did you think of it?

  9. I've had both e-copy and audio of Red Rising for ages now and I'm so SO embarassed that they're still on my tbr pile. (It's a huge pile, let me tell you). I've heard great things though, so I'll probably get to it soon now that I have more time for audio.

  10. I really enjoyed Red Rising, even though it took me a while to really get into it and finishing it but I'm looking forward to this ond and I love the cover. I think I also have a problem with male authors for some reason, the way they write doesn't suit me, but Brown did! Great pick! :)

  12. It seems like I haven't really heard much about this series. I did see a negative review of the first the other day but maybe I should look deeper.

  14. Dude, I was just flipping out on Facebook and Twitter because this is on NG but not "available". So freaking lame. I NEED this book!

  15. I still need to read the first one. ARGH> I haven't read an excellent dystopian in awhile.

  18. I liked, but didn't love Red Rising. I'm interested to see where he goes with the story though since we might actually be getting the space battles I thought the first one would be about. I got so excited when I saw this on Netgalley this morning, but it was only a teaser.

    1. Sorry you didn't love it, maybe this one will be better. I can't believe we can't request it yet, Netgalley is such a tease!

  19. That's awesome you enjoyed Red Rising! I've heard the writing style takes some time to get used to, so I've been a bit hesitant to start it. I think I'll try to read it before Golden Son comes out, though :)
