"Waiting On" Wednesday (#38) Uninvited (Uninvited #1) by Sophie Jordan


“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week I'm picking:
Uninvited (Uninvited #1) by
Expected publication: January 28th 2014 by HarperTeen

From Goodreads: 
The Scarlet Letter meets Minority Report in bestselling author Sophie Jordan's chilling new novel about a teenage girl who is ostracized when her genetic test proves she's destined to become a murderer.

When Davy Hamilton's tests come back positive for Homicidal Tendency Syndrome (HTS)-aka the kill gene-she loses everything. Her boyfriend ditches her, her parents are scared of her, and she can forget about her bright future at Juilliard. Davy doesn't feel any different, but genes don't lie. One day she will kill someone.

Only Sean, a fellow HTS carrier, can relate to her new life. Davy wants to trust him; maybe he's not as dangerous as he seems. Or maybe Davy is just as deadly.

The first in a two-book series, Uninvited tackles intriguing questions about free will, identity, and human nature. Steeped in New York Times bestselling author Sophie Jordan's trademark mix of gripping action and breathless romance, this suspenseful tale is perfect for fans of James Patterson, Michelle Hodkin, and Lisa McMann.

Why I'm Waiting:
I have a confession, I haven't read any of Sophie Jordan's other books.  This looks like the perfect series to get my start.  Plus this idea is so intriguing.  I love the idea of examining free will v. nature.


  1. I haven't read any of her books either, but this is definitely enticing. I will have to check out some reviews. Thanks for sharing!!
