I heard about Waiting on Wednesday on the fantastic Lit Up Review blog, and it seemed to me like a great idea to tag along with. Originally coming from the Breaking The Spine blog, Waiting on Wednesday allows me to talk about a book I just can’t wait to get my hands on. Let’s get started !
First of all, if you have no idea what The Program is, i advice you to check out its goodreads page to learn more about this fantastic series. The plot can be summarized in one word : shocking. That’s what I first told myself when I picked out the first book of this series. Why am I reading that, what am I doing to myself, I remember I kept on asking, WHY god, WHY. And, when you think about it, this is what great books are made of. Books that make you think, books that make you feel things.
It’s without surprise that, this week, I am eager to read The Remedy, by Suzanne Young. In this series, I was hooked on the plot right from the start, and I couldn’t stop reading, even though my emotions were threatening to explode. Full of action, surprises, and, well, yes, tears (I cried more than I should have reading this) ; this series was a great read.
The Remedy promises to take us before the epidemic. This is something I’m very curious about, especially regarding the way the author wants us to get into this world. We’ll see it through Quinlan’s eyes, a closer. Helping a family grieve by becoming, short-term, the loved-one they lost. Taking someone else’s place, someone else’s life. I’m intrigued to see how this is processed in the book, and how this character manages to live this strange life. And, obviously, how she gets attached to every life she touches. Another promising read, still on conflicted feelings, and on how knowing how you can live your own life. I loved Suzanne Young’s writing, too, without artifice and letting us know all the right emotions. I cannot wait to see what this prequel holds!
