Waiting on Wednesday #84

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event,  hosted by breaking the spine, that spotlights upcoming
releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Falls the Shadow by Stefanie Gaither
Series: No
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Publication Date: September 16th 2014

When Cate Benson was a kid, her sister, Violet, died. Two hours after the funeral, Cate’s family picked up Violet’s replacement. Like nothing had happened. Because Cate’s parents are among those who decided to give their children a sort of immortality—by cloning them at birth—which means this new Violet has the same smile. The same perfect face. Thanks to advancements in mind-uploading technology, she even has all of the same memories as the girl she replaced.

She also might have murdered the most popular girl in school. 

At least, that’s what the paparazzi and the anti-cloning protestors want everyone to think: that clones are violent, unpredictable monsters. Cate is used to hearing all that. She’s used to defending her sister, too. But Violet has vanished, and when Cate sets out to find her, she ends up in the line of fire instead. Because Cate is getting dangerously close to secrets that will rock the foundation of everything she thought was true.

How freaking amazing does this sound?! The minute I saw the word 'clone' I knew I just HAD to read this book. I'm dying to find out more about the clones; Whether Violet did kill the most popular girl in school and what secrets are being hidden! It just sounds amazing!

What are you waiting on this week?


  1. Never heard of this one, but it sounds very interesting. I'm a big clone fan (blame Orphan Black. It ruined my life in so many ways), so I'll definitely be checking this one out!

    1. Orphan Black is why I'm a massive clone fan too! It's amaaaaaaazing!

  2. I've been seeing this cover around for a while now but have failed to check out the synopsis. Fail on my part. It does sound awesome! *adds to TBR* :D

  3. Oh my gosh, this sounds so awesome! I love the blurb and OH MY GOSH THAT COVER! That cover is amazing! I can't believe this is my first time seeing this one around! Thanks for bringing it to our attention!

    Here's my WoW!

  4. I saw this one either last week or the week before on another blog and was instantly interested!
    Science fiction, cloning, ethical issues! Sounds like something I'll love!
    Great pick Samantha!
