Dying to Read (49)- THE EIGHTH GUARDIAN by Meredith McCardle


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 EIGHTH GUARDIAN by Meredith McCardle! I read this synopsis and it kind of reminded me of Marianne Curley's Guardians of Time Trilogy which I loved so I can't wait to read this! I need more good time travel stories in my life!!!


THE EIGHTH GUARDIAN
Meredith McCardle
Release Date: May 6, 2014
Hardcover: 384 pages
Publisher: Skyscape  (Amazon) 
ISBN: 978-1477847138

Amanda Obermann. Code name Iris.

It’s Testing Day. The day that comes without warning, the day when all juniors and seniors at The Peel Academy undergo a series of intense physical and psychological tests to see if they’re ready to graduate and become government operatives. Amanda and her boyfriend Abe are top students, and they’ve just endured thirty-six hours of testing. But they’re juniors and don’t expect to graduate. That’ll happen next year, when they plan to join the CIA—together.

But when the graduates are announced, the results are shocking. Amanda has been chosen—the first junior in decades. And she receives the opportunity of a lifetime: to join a secret government organization called the Annum Guard and travel through time to change the course of history. But in order to become the Eighth Guardian in this exclusive group, Amanda must say good-bye to everything—her name, her family, and even Abe—forever.

Who is really behind the Annum Guard? And can she trust them with her life?

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