On My Wishlist (33)

In On My Wishlist I spotlight books that I'm really looking forward to. I know there's a meme Waiting on Wednesday and there even are others, but I'm going to rebel and do it how I want it (hehe). I'll feature the synopsis as posted on Goodreads and put a linkie to the Goodreads page of the book. This week: Once by Anna Carey.

Once by Anna Carey
Expected publication date: July 3rd, 2012

Sixteen years have passed since a deadly virus wiped out most of the Earth’s population. After learning of the terrifying part she and her classmates were fated to play in the rebuilding of New America, eighteen-year-old Eve fled to the wilds and Califia, a haven for women determined to live outside the oppressive rule of the king of New America. However, her freedom came at a price: she was forced to leave Caleb, the boy she loves, wounded and alone at the city gates. Eve quickly learns that Califia may not be as safe as it seems and soon finds herself in the City of Sand and the palace of the king. There she uncovers the real reason he was so intent on her capture, and the unbelievable role he intends her to fill. When she is finally reunited with Caleb, they will enact a plan as daring as it is dangerous. But will Eve once again risk everything—her freedom, her life—for love?

After reading Eve with that ending, I've been impatiently awaiting the release for the second book in the series. The synopsis reveals that we will find out why the king wants her and that was one of the biggest questions I had while I was reading Eve. I'm very excited to find out! I really liked reading Eve, but I'm hoping that Once will be even more awesome and will pick up a faster pace. Either way, I cannot wait to get my hands on a copy!


  1. I have yet to read EVE (which is sitting on my shelf) but I really hope to get to it soon. :)
