A Time to Speak - Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine, where you feature a yet-to-be-released title you're anticipating!

This week's Waiting on Wednesday on The Artist Librarian features "A Time to Speak" --book 2 of @NadineBrandes' heart-stopping dystopian Out of Time Trilogy.

Title: A Time to Speak (Out of Time #2)*
Author: Nadine Brandes
Release Date: October 16, 2015 by Enclave Publishing

About the Book:
"What happens when you live longer than you wanted to?

Parvin Blackwater wanted to die, but now she's being called to be a leader. The only problem is, no one wants to follow.

The Council uses Jude's Clock-matching invention to force "new-and-improved" Clocks on the public. Those who can't afford one are packed into boxcars like cattle and used for the Council's purposes.

Parvin and Hawke find themselves on a cargo ship of Radicals headed out to sea. What will the Council do to them? And why are people suddenly dying before their Clocks have zeroed-out?"
Why I'm "WoW" about A Time to Speak:
I reviewed Nadine's debut dystopian, A Time to Die earlier this month and wow!  One GoodReads reviewer basically called it "The Hunger Games meets Pilgrim's Progress" and I have to say, it's a good description.  If you're looking for an intense YA dystopian with a strong spiritual thread, definitely look into the Out of Time trilogy. I'm glad that since I came late to the series, I don't have to wait too long for A Time to Speak (only a couple of weeks), because, warning: book 1 ends on such a cliffhanger!  For those of us who need a little something to tide us over until then, Nadine released the first chapter on her website, but don't read it if you haven't finished A Time to Die because there are huge spoilers!

Nadine is also hosting a Facebook release party on Oct. 20 - hopefully I'll be finished with my class in time!

Tomorrow is the 1st of October.  Are there any titles releasing in the next month you're "WoW" about?  Let me know (and tell me why) in the comments!

  1. I haven't seen this series before. Man that cover with that steep drop off...shudders. Great choice!

    My WOW: http://mommywantstoread.blogspot.com/2015/09/waiting-on-wednesday-im-waiting-on.html

    1. I really have been pleasantly surprised by the few titles I've read by smaller presses --I've always shied away from indie published titles in the past, but I think I need to rethink that! The book you chose, The Cresswell Plot, also has a pretty intense cover --Also welcome back to book blogging, Melissa! I noticed you've returned this year after a bit of an absence. =)

  2. This synopsis certainly sounds intense and really interesting! Definitely gonna add this to my TBR :) Great post! Here's my Wow!

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Lillie! I added you on google+!

      Like the author, I grew up in Hawaii, so I'm totally intrigued by "The Girl from Everywhere" ... thanks for bringing it to my attention! I'm going to have to look for it next year for sure. =)
