Welcome to the Sci-Fi November version of Waiting on Wednesday! Sci-Fi November is hosted by Oh, The Books! and Rinn Reads, and Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine. This month I’m highlighting upcoming science fiction titles that I’m dying to read. It’s the last Wednesday of November, boo! It’s been fun picking only science fiction titles this month. Today I’m waiting on:
Persona by Genevieve Valentine. Releases in March 2015 from Saga Press. First of all, I love the creepy snake on the cover:-) Saga Press is a new Sci-Fi/Fantasy imprint from Simon & Schuster, which launches next Spring. The plot of this book sounds crazy, but in a good way:
An acerbic thriller from a Nebula award finalist, set against the backdrop of a near-future world of celebrity ambassadors and assassins who manipulate the media to the point where the only truth seekers left are the paparazzi.
When Suyana, Face of the United Amazonia Rainforest Confederation, secretly meets Ethan of the United States for a date that can solidify a relationship for the struggling UARC, the last thing she expects is an assassination attempt. Daniel, a teen runaway-turned-paparazzi out for his big break, witnesses the first shot hit Suyana, and before he can think about it, he jumps into the fray, telling himself it’s not altruism, it’s the scoop. Just like that, Suyana and Daniel are now in the game of Faces. And if they lose, they’ll die.
Let me know what you’re waiting on!
