Waiting on Wednesday: Eve by Anna Carey

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine to spotlight an upcoming release that we're excited about. This week I'm waiting on Eve by Anna Carey.

The year is 2032, sixteen years after a deadly virus—and the vaccine intended to protect against it—wiped out most of the earth’s population. The night before eighteen-year-old Eve’s graduation from her all-girls school she discovers what really happens to new graduates, and the horrifying fate that awaits her.

Fleeing the only home she’s ever known, Eve sets off on a long, treacherous journey, searching for a place she can survive. Along the way she encounters Caleb, a rough, rebellious boy living in the wild. Separated from men her whole life, Eve has been taught to fear them, but Caleb slowly wins her trust...and her heart. He promises to protect her, but when soldiers begin hunting them, Eve must choose between true love and her life. (Summary by Goodreads)

Dystopia, romance, difficult decisions, and possible human trafficking? Awesome. I have high hopes for a strong female protagonist. If the character of Eve is well done, this is going to be superb. Superb.

Eve comes out Oct. 4, 2011.


  1. Yay! This is my pick too for this week:
    Great minds think alike, so added myself as a follower :)

  2. Great choice! I'm so excited for this one!

  3. Hey, thanks for stopping by my blog :)

    That sounds pretty interesting, even though I usually stay clear of dystopia - might make an exception for this :)

    I have to say, I am definitely intrigued! I really love dystopia-type books, and this summary caught my interest. Also, the cover is really beautiful!

  7. I've seen this one a lot lately. I'm not a huge dystopian fan but I might give it a try.

  8. Ooh seen this one too! The cover image of the girl was used on another upcoming title! Find that kind of neat!

    Jessica@a GREAT read

  9. Excellent pick! I found about this one through another WoW post a few weeks ago. It definitely made my list as well :)

  10. I have this one and need to get to it!


  11. The relationships between the characters were emotionally charged and believable. I loved the dynamic between Eve and many of the secondary characters, especially the boys Silas and Benny. It was almost a "Wendy meets the Lost Boys" kind of situation, with the boys so desperately needing a mother figure.
