Waiting on Wednesday: Pure by Julianna Baggott

Hi everyone,
For those of you who don't know "Waiting On" Wednesday is an event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. The purpose is to let others know which book you are anitcipating and can't wait til it comes out to read it.


  • Pub. Date: February 2012
  • Publisher: Grand Central Publishing
  • Format: Hardcover , 448pp



  • Synopsis
    Pure (Pure #1)We know you are here, our brothers and sisters . . .
    Pressia barely remembers the Detonations or much about life during the Before. In her sleeping cabinet behind the rubble of an old barbershop where she lives with her grandfather, she thinks about what is lost-how the world went from amusement parks, movie theaters, birthday parties, fathers and mothers . . . to ash and dust, scars, permanent burns, and fused, damaged bodies. And now, at an age when everyone is required to turn themselves over to the militia to either be trained as a soldier or, if they are too damaged and weak, to be used as live targets, Pressia can no longer pretend to be small. Pressia is on the run.
    Burn a Pure and Breathe the Ash . . .
    There are those who escaped the apocalypse unmarked. Pures. They are tucked safely inside the Dome that protects their healthy, superior bodies. Yet Partridge, whose father is one of the most influential men in the Dome, feels isolated and lonely. Different. He thinks about loss-maybe just because his family is broken; his father is emotionally distant; his brother killed himself; and his mother never made it inside their shelter. Or maybe it's his claustrophobia: his feeling that this Dome has become a swaddling of intensely rigid order. So when a slipped phrase suggests his mother might still be alive, Partridge risks his life to leave the Dome to find her.
    When Pressia meets Partridge, their worlds shatter all over again.

    Why I Can't Wait
    I read the synopsis on Goodreads a while back. Ever since, I have really wanted to read it. It sounds so good. And it is already getting really great buzz about it. I love new and unique dystopians. I can't wait til it comes out. Let me know if you are excited for this and let me know in the comments what you are waiting for.

    Thanks for Visiting and Happy Reading =]

    1. Oh you are so going to hate me. This book does look good. I happen to have this book already as an ARC. Picked it up earlier this year at BEA. I can tell you the cover is pretty in person. Thanks for stopping by my WOW earlier.
