Waiting On Wednesday: Now & The Legacy

Waiting on Wednesday idea from Jill at Breaking the Spine.

I've got two picks this week, because I just couldn't choose between these two!


Now by Morris Gleitzman

* Published by: Puffin (UK)
* Format: Paperback (UK)
* Release Date: May 6th
, 2010 (UK)
* On Amazon: here

Amazon summary:
Morris Gleitzman's acclaimed story of friends Felix and Zelda in Nazi-occupied Poland has captured the hearts and minds of readers worldwide. In Now he delivers the final chapter, bringing this most moving of stories into the present day.

I absolutely love this series, and I can't wait to see how Gleitzman ends it in the present day. Once and Then are fantastic books, set in WWII and very highly recommended.


The Legacy by Gemma Malley

* Published by: Bloomsbury (UK)
* Format: Hardcover (UK)
* Release Date: September 6th
, 2010 (UK)
* On Amazon: here

Amazon summary:
When a Pincent Pharma lorry is ambushed by the Underground, its contents come as a huge surprise - not drugs, but corpses in a horrible state. It appears Longevity isn't working and the drugs promising eternal youth are failing to live up to their promises. A virus is sweeping the country, killing in its wake, and Longevity is powerless to fight it. When Richard Pincent of Pincent Pharma suggest that the Underground has released the virus, something has to be done to put the story straight and once and for all alert everyone to the truth.

This is the final book in another trilogy I love (other books titled The Declaration and The Resistance), which is UK dystopia at its best. I'm counting down the days until this one lands in my mailbox - I can't wait to find out what happens to Anna and Peter! Oh, and how lovely is the cover?!

The cover of The Legacy is mesmerizing. What's the first book in the series?

The first two are The Declaration and The Resistance. Will edit post to say that actually. :)

I love dystopia, will have to read all in that series by Malley. I like the cover too, it looks a little like the US versions of the Shiver and Linger covers.

The Legacy has such a gorgeous cover and its so different from the others in the series. I haven't read the first two yet, so i need to get them read before the train pulls out of the station. You seriously love books set in WWII don't you? you little fiend!

Dwayne said...

I like the sound of The Legacy:)

Steph Su said...

Hmm. I wonder if the person who designed the UK covers for Shiver and Linger did the cover for The Legacy as well. Is it just me, or do they look kind of similar and have the same style? Very cool!
