Dying to Read (17)- The Uprising by Lisa M. Stasse

Hey y’all thanks for stopping by to see my Dying to Read post and of course as always I have to give credit to the lovely Jill over at Breaking the Spine for the Waiting on Wednesday Meme!

This week the book I’m dying to read is The Uprising by Lisa M. Stasse! I loved Lisa’s first book in this series and I just can’t wait to dive back into this world!

The Uprising (Forsaken #2)
Lisa M. Stasse
Release Date: August 6, 2013
Hardcover: 400 pages
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers
ISBN: 1442432683

In this dystopian sequel to The Forsaken, Alenna has survived the brutality of life on the wheel—and now she’s going back for more.   

Alenna escaped. It was expected that she would die on the wheel, the island where would-be criminals are sent as directed by the UNA—the totalitarian supercountry that was once the United States, Mexico, and Canada. But Alenna and her boyfriend, Liam, made it to safety. Except safety, they will soon learn, is relative.

In order to bring down the UNA, they must first gain control of the wheel. If the mission succeeds, the wheel will become a base of revolution. But between betrayals, a new Monk leading a more organized army of Drones, and the discovery of a previously unknown contingent, Alenna, Liam, and their allies might be in over their heads. One thing Alenna knows for sure: There will be a reckoning. And not everyone she loves will make it out alive.

So what do you think? Will you be adding this to your pile? What are you dying to read this week?


  1. The covers for this author's books are amazing! Totally creepy but awesome! I own book one but hadn't read it yet but I definitely will be picking up this sequel.

    Great pick!

  2. o00o I hadn't seen this cover yet! So awesome. Pity the Australian publisher decided to go with a Katniss-inspired cover for our version of Forsaken. I can't wait for this either though, whatever cover I get it in!

    Thanks for sharing!!
