Waiting on Wednesday – 2/2/11

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, and specifically spotlights upcoming novels we can't wait to read. This week’s choice is:
Title: The Power of Six
Author: Pittacus Lore
Publisher: HarperCollins
Publish Date: August 23, 2011
Pages: 352
Genre: YA, Science Fiction
Summary: They caught Number One in Malaysia. Number Two in England. And Number Three in Kenya.  They tried to catch Number Four in Ohio and failed.  I am Number Seven. One of six still alive. And I'm ready to fight.
I read I Am Number Four and really enjoyed it. Despite the controversy over James Frey's involvement in the book, I thought it was entertaining and the movie looks like it will be as well. I am excited to read the sequel, but I am a bit bummed that the Goodreads summary is from the perspective of Number Seven and not a continuation of John's (Number Four) story. I'm sure I will read it regardless. What books are you waiting on?

great choice! I can't wait to read this as well, even though I was also a bit bummed that we're switching to #7's perspective.

I could kick myself for missing the fact that this will exist soon! I loved the first one and am looking forward to the movie too. Great pick!
