Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.
27 Hours by Tristina Wright
It will be released on October 3, 2017, by Entangled Teen.
I’m so excited to read this book! It has diversity! and it has space! and it has drama! Everything that I’m looking for in a book. It is #ownvoices for bisexual rep. One character is bisexual and multiracial. One is Afro-Latinx, bisexual and trans girl. One is fat, deaf, and pansexual. One is gay. One is asexual. All side characters are in the LGBTQIA+ spectrum too.
Look at the cover! It’s so beautiful. All that purple and green! I hope the books have some kind of beautiful endpapers because it is only logical!
Rumor Mora fears two things: hellhounds too strong for him to kill, and failure. Jude Welton has two dreams: for humans to stop killing monsters, and for his strange abilities to vanish.
But in no reality should a boy raised to love monsters fall for a boy raised to kill them.
Nyx Llorca keeps two secrets: the moon speaks to her, and she’s in love with Dahlia, her best friend. Braeden Tennant wants two things: to get out from his mother’s shadow and to unlearn Epsilon’s darkest secret.
They’ll both have to commit treason to find the truth.
During one twenty-seven-hour night, if they can’t stop the war between the colonies and the monsters from becoming a war of extinction, the things they wish for will never come true, and the things they fear will be all that’s left.
27 Hours is a sweeping, thrilling story featuring a stellar cast of queer teenagers battling to save their homes and possibly every human on Sahara as the clock ticks down to zero.
