Waiting On Wednesday (63) Perfect Ruin by Lauren DeStefano

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly blog post hosted by Breaking The Spine.
For this weeks Waiting On Wednesday I chose Perfect Ruin by Lauren DeStefano.

Expected Publication:
October 1, 2013

On Internment, the floating island in the clouds where 16-year-old Morgan Stockhour lives, getting too close to the edge can lead to madness. Even though Morgan's older brother, Lex, was a Jumper, Morgan vows never to end up like him. She tries her best not to mind that her life is orderly and boring, and if she ever wonders about the ground, and why it is forbidden, she takes solace in best friend Pen and her betrothed, Basil.

Then a murder, the first in a generation, rocks the city. With whispers swirling and fear on the wind, Morgan can no longer stop herself from investigating, especially when she meets Judas. He is the boy being blamed for the murder — betrothed to the victim — but Morgan is convinced of his innocence. Secrets lay at the heart of Internment, but nothing can prepare Morgan for what she will find — or who she will lose.

 Why Am I Waiting?
To put it simply Perfect Ruin just sounds like a damn awesome book not to mention it has such an absolutely stunning cover. As soon as I heard about this book I knew it was one that I would want to read. It's like a Dystopian Jetsons lol. Plus it is Lauren DeStefano so I know I'll like the writing. 

Since I'm curious, Have you heard of Perfect Ruin before? 
Will you be picking this up when it releases in October? 
Have you read Lauren DeStefano's other series?

  6. I haven't read her Chemical Garden trilogy yet; however, I also like the sound of PERFECT RUIN. The idea of a utopia instead of a dystopia really interests me! Also, re: your comment on my blog - Yes, I know CRUEL BEAUTY is on Edelweiss. I already got it. (; Thanks for stopping by!
