Waiting on Wednesday (119): The Elites + Dare Me

Since I'm five books ahead on my Goodreads challenge, I've decided that I have room for slacking off so I'm currently watching some animes I'm curious of. This piece of info isn't probably helpful to you but... yeah. Anyway, how's your week so far? :)

Here are my picks for the week:

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine


Title: The Elites by Natasha Ngan
Release Date: September 5th 2013
Published by: Hot Key Books

Summary (from Goodreads):

'There is a rumour that the Elites don't bleed.'

Hundreds of years into the future, wars, riots, resource crises and rising sea-levels have destroyed the old civilisations. Only one city has survived: Neo-Babel, a city full of cultures - and racial tension. Fifteen-year-old Silver is an Elite, a citizen of Neo-Babel chosen to guard the city due to her superior DNA. She'd never dream of leaving - but then she fails to prevent the assassination of Neo Babel's president, setting off a chain of events more shocking and devastating than she could ever have imagined. Forced to flee the city with her best friend Butterfly (a boy with genetically-enhanced wings), Silver will have to fight to find her family, uncover the truth about Neo-Babel and come to terms with her complicated feelings for Butterfly.

Packed full of adventure, romance, exoticism and the power of friendship, THE ELITES is a highly compelling and beautifully written novel from a supremely talented debut author.

Why I'm waiting for The Elites:

This is a debut? It just sounds so creative and imaginative you'd think this was written by someone who's got a lot of books out already.It sounds like a very interesting, action packed novel and I wouldn't want to miss reading this one once it's out! Enhanced citizens, a city filled with a myriad of cultures, it's got the right ingredients to make me so curious about it. Can't wait for this one to be released!


Title: Dare Me by Eric Devine
Release Date: October 8th 2013
Published by: Running Press Kids

Summary (from Goodreads):

When Ben Candido and his friends, Ricky and John, decide to post a YouTube video of themselves surfing on top of a car, they finally feel like the somebodies they are meant to be instead of the social nobodies that they are. Overnight, the video becomes the talk of the school, and the boys are sure that their self-appointed senior year of dares will live in infamy. Every dare brings an increased risk of bodily harm, but Ben cannot deny the thrill and sense of swagger that come with it. The stakes become even more complex when a mysterious donor bankrolls their dares in exchange for a cut in the online revenue the videos generate. But at what point do the risk and the reward come at too high of a price? What does it take to stay true to one’s self in the face of relentless pressure.

Why I'm waiting for Dare Me:

Another book about dares! For some reason I just can't get enough of books with a plot like this one. There's something about dares that makes one think of how far a person can go just to fulfill them, and that's where the thrill comes from, I guess. If you ask me I definitely will read this book for the simple fact that I want to know how far Be and his friends can go. The idea of someone funding dares is also what made me intrigued by this novel. Is that even possible? I wanna find out!
