Waiting On Wednesday: Blackbird (Anna Carey)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly blogging event hosted by Breaking the Spine, in which one spotlights an upcoming release they are eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Title: Blackbird
Author: Anna Carey
Release Date: September 16, 2014
Publisher: HarperTeen
Summary (from Goodreads):

This twisty, breathless cat-and-mouse thrill ride, told in the second person, follows a girl with amnesia in present-day Los Angeles who is being pursued by mysterious and terrifying assailants.

A girl wakes up on the train tracks, a subway car barreling down on her. With only minutes to react, she hunches down and the train speeds over her. She doesn’t remember her name, where she is, or how she got there. She has a tattoo on the inside of her right wrist of a blackbird inside a box, letters and numbers printed just below: FNV02198. There is only one thing she knows for sure: people are trying to kill her. 

On the run for her life, she tries to untangle who she is and what happened to the girl she used to be. Nothing and no one are what they appear to be. But the truth is more disturbing than she ever imagined. 

The Maze Runner series meets Code Name Verity, Blackbird is relentless and action-packed, filled with surprising twists.

Why I'm Looking Forward To ItA 2nd Person thriller! So excited to see YA authors experimenting in this unusual tense.

So what book are you waiting on?


  1. This looks so awesome! I just read Eve and really liked it so I'm sure this is going to be a good one!

  2. The Maze Runner meets Code Name Verity? That's not what it sounds like, but now I wanna read it!
    My WoW

  3. I have heard so much about this book. I love the fact that it is in second person. That will make it such an interesting experience to read!

  4. This book is interesting to me because of the way it's written. I can't imagine what reading second person would be like
