Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Normally I don’t participate in many memes because so far I had other posts on those days. But today I didn’t have anything scheduled and I want to talk about a book that I also found on someone’s Waiting on Wednesday post.

Reboot (Reboot #1)
by Amy Tintera
Release Date: May 7th, 2013

Blurb from Goodreads:
Five years ago, Wren Connolly was shot three times in the chest. After 178 minutes she came back as a Reboot: stronger, faster, able to heal, and less emotional. The longer Reboots are dead, the less human they are when they return. Wren 178 is the deadliest Reboot in the Republic of Texas. Now seventeen years old, she serves as a soldier for HARC (Human Advancement and Repopulation Corporation).

Wren’s favorite part of the job is training new Reboots, but her latest newbie is the worst she’s ever seen. As a 22, Callum Reyes is practically human. His reflexes are too slow, he’s always asking questions, and his ever-present smile is freaking her out. Yet there’s something about him she can’t ignore. When Callum refuses to follow an order, Wren is given one last chance to get him in line—or she’ll have to eliminate him. Wren has never disobeyed before and knows if she does, she’ll be eliminated, too. But she has also never felt as alive as she does around Callum.

The perfect soldier is done taking orders.

I think a few months ago I found out about Reboot due to someone doing a waiting on wednesday post about it. I think the blurb sounds awesome, dystopia, but also with an original twist. And I love the cover it is so simple and dark and intriguing. And the blurb gives the same feeling. I also like how original the idea of Reboots is and how there is some romance trow in. I pre-ordered the hardcover of this book yesterday and I can’t wait to read it and find out if it is as good as it sounds.

Which book are you waiting for?

      lol, awesome you also have Reboot as one of your picks. I really hope it is awesome, I even ordered the hardcover because the paperback won’t be releashed until a year later or so.

      It really sounds awesome, right :D? I also love the tagline, so simple and yet so awesome. I also love the simple cover design. It is so different from most covers.

      I had the same when I first saw Reboot on a WoW. I thought maybe I could get new people to hear about Reboot too when I choose this as WoW.
