Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine! And this week i am waiting on: 
Dualed (Dualed, #1)
Would you live through the ultimate test of survival?

The city of Kersh is a safe haven, but the price of safety is high. Everyone has a genetic Alternate—a twin raised by another family—and citizens must prove their worth by eliminating their Alts before their twentieth birthday. Survival means advanced schooling, a good job, marriage—life.

Fifteen-year-old West Grayer has trained as a fighter, preparing for the day when her assignment arrives and she will have one month to hunt down and kill her Alt. But then a tragic misstep shakes West’s confidence. Stricken with grief and guilt, she’s no longer certain that she’s the best version of herself, the version worthy of a future. If she is to have any chance of winning, she must stop running not only from her Alt, but also from love . . . though both have the power to destroy her.~Goodreads

'She must stop running from love', eh? Do i sense i romantical entanglement?! EEEP! THOSE ARE MY FAVORITE!! Ehem...Doesn't this book sound BOMB, though!? Like, dudes! What would you do if there was an alternate you out there? Would you try to befriend it? Have it take your place in class? Have it kick your enemy's ass? Kill it? Whoa. What if you had to kill the other....you? Mind = BLOWN! Anywho! The cover is pretty much B.A. and i'm super excited for this one! :)

  2. DUDE. we are WOW twinsies! <3 I want this book yesterday, TOO. man, I love that cover. Creepy, but LOVE IT. also, I hope there's a romantical entanglement! they are my favorite, TOO.

    also, I just finished reading 172 Hours on the Moon and I'm like NO. NO ALTERNATE MEs, because I'll fail at beating it. I'll be too scared to even search it out.

    1. JUST CONFIRMED VIA THE TWIT: There WILL be a romantical entanglement!! The stud-muffs name starts with a C. That's all i weaseled out of Elsie! :P

      AH! I wanted to read that book, was it any good!!?? Should i not read it at night!? Also, i think i'd wanna search my Alt out and slap it in the face. A good ole slap, for every stupid thing i've ever said or done that i wish i could take back and slap myself for saying. LOL!

  3. Ho-okay. I just spent the last 20 minutes poking around the many corners of your blog, and I have not laughed that hard in a while. It's been decided (without you, I'm afraid, you'll just have to go along with it...) that we're going to be best friends. And you will share your hot pockets with me. Yep. Sounds about right.

    Thank you for the visit to my blog, btw! Though, actually, now it occurs to me that I don't think we can be best friends. We both picked Dualed which means WE ARE CLEARLY ALTS and now I am going to have to kill you.

    Best friends for 10 seconds and then you're dead. This had been a emotional roller coaster of a comment for me...

  14. Really original concept! :D I can't wait to read something like that. And I'm still wondering: would I be able to kill a second me? Your first instinct is 'yes, if that's what it takes to live' but I'm not sure if I'm that tough.
