Wishlist Wednesday

Description, courtesy of AmazonMaddie lives in a world where everything is done on the computer. Whether it’s to go to school or on a date, people don’t venture out of their home. There’s really no need. For the most part, Maddie’s okay with the solitary, digital life—until she meets Justin. Justin likes being with people. He enjoys the physical closeness of face-to-face interactions. People aren’t meant to be alone, he tells her.

Suddenly, Maddie feels something awakening inside her—a feeling that maybe there is a different, better way to live. But with society and her parents telling her otherwise, Maddie is going to have to learn to stand up for herself if she wants to change the path her life is taking.

In this not-so-brave new world, two young people struggle to carve out their own space.

This sounds like a sweet, touching little read about a dystopia that's not too different from today...  And the cover is pretty intriguing, too.  I'll be reading Awaken when it comes out - will you?


  1. Sounds great, although to be honest, to do everything via computer would be heavenly for me right now :D! Great pick!

  2. This book is really great! I read it on NetGalley and really enjoyed it.
