Waiting on Wednesday #1: The White Rose by Amy Ewing

Wednesday, 20 May 2015

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.


The White Rose (The Lone City #2), by Amy Ewing
Publication: October 6, 2015, by HarperTeen
Genre: Young Adult Fiction, Dystopian, Romance
Pages: 320

Violet is on the run. After the Duchess of the Lake catches Violet with Ash, the hired companion at the Palace of the Lake, Violet has no choice but to escape the Jewel or face certain death. So along with Ash and her best friend, Raven, Violet runs away from her unbearable life of servitude.
But no one said leaving the Jewel would be easy. As they make their way through the circles of the Lone City, Regimentals track their every move, and the trio barely manages to make it out unscathed and into the safe haven they were promised—a mysterious house in the Farm.
But there’s a rebellion brewing, and Violet has found herself in the middle of it. Alongside a new ally, Violet discovers her Auguries are much more powerful than she ever imagined. But is she strong enough to rise up against the Jewel and everything she has ever known?
The White Rose is a raw, captivating sequel to The Jewel that fans won’t be able to put down until the final shocking moments.

So I've just read The Jewel not so long ago, and I'M OBSESSED. Ewing is a fantastic author and she created so much suspense that I'm unable to wait any longer. Thankfully, Amy will be at BEA on the 27th (ONE WEEK!) and I will meet her and hopefully get this one!


Have you read The Jewel and enjoyed it as much as I did?

  3. WOAH I LIKE THAT COVER. I'm one of the moody bookworms who didn't like the Jewel very much at all, hehe. Buuuuut, I LOVE THE COVERS SO MUCH. So that definitely counts. The UK/AUS covers are pretty awful, so i'm just drooling over the US ones. xD
    Thanks for stopping by @ Paper Fury!

    1. I KNOW, RIGHT?! Aw, it's okay! I mean, there are tons of negative reviews on it and I was actually expecting to dislike it as well! *is so excited to be the black sheep* I just noticed those creepy faces on the sides of the rose, but oh well, haha. LOL they are REALLY ugly! If I spotted the book with the AUS covers at the store, I probably would've been more hesitant to pick it up unlike my situation with the US. xD
