Waiting on Wednesday: The Carrier of the Mark and Prized

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


The Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon
Paperback: 352 pages
Release date: September 13th, 2011
Publisher: HarperTeen
Goodreads Summary: Striking out into the wasteland with nothing but her baby sister, a handful of supplies, and a rumor to guide her, sixteen-year-old midwife Gaia Stone survives only to be captured by the people of Sylum, a dystopian society where women rule the men who drastically outnumber them, and a kiss is a crime.  In order to see her sister again, Gaia must submit to their strict social code, but how can she deny her sense of justice, her curiosity, and everything in her heart that makes her whole?
I'm not sure if she still remembers me but I exchanged a brief convo with Leigh Fallon months ago on Twitter about Vampire Academy. I followed her without knowing that she's a 2011 debut YA author! I was so excited when I found out and added this book on my to-read shelf immediately. Seriously, look at that stunning cover! So GORGEOUS that it matches the intriguing story. 


Prized (Birthmarked #2) by Caragh M. O'Brien 

Hardcover: 368 pages
Release date: November 8th, 2011
Publisher: Roaring Brook Press
Goodreads summary: Striking out into the wasteland with nothing but her baby sister, a handful of supplies, and a rumor to guide her, sixteen-year-old midwife Gaia Stone survives only to be captured by the people of Sylum, a dystopian society where women rule the men who drastically outnumber them, and a kiss is a crime.  In order to see her sister again, Gaia must submit to their strict social code, but how can she deny her sense of justice, her curiosity, and everything in her heart that makes her whole?
I read Birthmarked a month ago and loved it. One of the unique dystopia books I've read and left the readers with a cliffhanger. The cover's really pretty too! I saw the paperback cover of Birthmarked that matches this one that will totally look cool on my bookshelf. I'm also curious what made 'Prized' the title of the sequel. Oh, well.. 6 months to go!!

What are you anxiously waiting on this week? Just leave a comment of the link to your WoW post!
