"Waiting On" Wednesday: Prized

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

My pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Prized (Birthmarked #2) by Caragh M. O'Brien
Expected publication: November 8th 2011

From Goodreads:
In the thrilling follow up to Birthmarked, sixteen-year-old midwife Gaia Stone has fled from the Enclave and now must fight for her baby sister’s survival in the matriarchal society of Sylum.

Striking out into the wasteland with nothing but her baby sister, a handful of supplies, and a rumor to guide her, 16-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?


  1. What an interesting cover! I think the first book has a really great cover too.

    I haven't read it yet, but it sounds good!

  2. Oh I wanted to read Birthmarked but have yet to do so and this sequel sounds great too. Must read faster.

  3. Great choice! I loved Birthmarked! It helped start my obsession with dystopian novels! New follower; looking forward to more posts in the future!
