"Waiting on" Wednesday #4

"Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine in which we have the opportunity to let others know about books that we are eagerly waiting for."

My choice for Waiting on Wednesday this week is...

The Dollhouse Asylum
By Mary Gray
Amazon * Goodreads 

Coming Out: October 22nd, 2013

"A virus that had once been contained has returned, and soon no place will be left untouched by its destruction. But when Cheyenne wakes up in Elysian Fields--a subdivision cut off from the world and its monster-creating virus--she is thrilled to have a chance at survival.

At first, Elysian Fields,with its beautiful houses and manicured lawns, is perfect. Teo Richardson, the older man who stole Cheyenne's heart, built it so they could be together. But when Teo tells Cheyenne there are tests that she and seven other couples must pass to be worthy of salvation, Cheyenne begins to question the perfection of his world.

The people they were before are gone. Cheyenne is now "Persephone," and each couple has been re-named to reflect the most tragic romances ever told. Everyone is fighting to pass the test, to remain in Elysian Fields. Teo dresses them up, tells them when to move and how to act, and in order to pass the test, they must play along.

If they play it right, then they'll be safe.

But if they play it wrong, they'll die."

I picked this book for my Waiting on Wednesday post because of its cover! I know, I know. Never judge a book by its cover, but I could not help it. This cover was just so neat looking and I was instantly drawn to it. On the plus side this is so my kind of book! It's so out there and dystopian that I could not pass it up!

  1. Nice pick! This is one book that feels like I've been waiting forever to read and there's still over 2 months yet!

    My WoW!
