Waiting on Wednesday (#37): Erased by Jennifer Rush


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


This week, I'm featuring:


Erased by Jennifer Rush
Book Two of the Altered series
Publisher: Little, Brown
Publication Date: January 7, 2014

Summary (from Goodreads):

They thought they had escaped. They were wrong.

After fleeing the Branch with Sam, Cas, and Nick, Anna is trying to make sense of the memories resurfacing from her old life. At the same time, she's learning how to survive in hiding, following Sam's rules: Don't draw attention to yourself. Always carry a weapon. Know your surroundings. Watch your back.

Then a figure from Anna's childhood reappears. Is it a Branch setup, or could it be the reunion Anna has hoped for? Uncertain of where her loyalties lie, Anna must fight to learn the truth -- before she is betrayed again. Ultimately, the answers hinge on one question: What was the real reason her memories were erased?


Yes I did read Altered (review HERE), and yes I did LOVE it. Gimmee an ARC, Little, Brown, pleasepleaseplease!

  3. I can't wait to read this book either! Altered was so good and I need to know what happens next. I hadn't seen that they had changed the cover, but it looks really cool.

    1. Altered was AMAZING! One of my favorites of the year so far. And the cover reveal and changes happened quite recently! I like them, but I prefer Altered's old cover. Good thing I have a hardcover copy already!

  4. I have seen Altered around but then I saw some really negative reviews that I gave up on it. I'm interested about the sequel maybe it'll make me read this series. Great pick :)

    1. SAM, YOU ARE MISSING OUT! The covers did change, and I'm kind of ehhh about it for Altered, but I like how it looks on Erased. But you bring up a good point.

      Thank you!

  16. I still haven't read book one. It's another one of those 'I bought it in print but I only like reading ebooks now' kind of thing like POison Princess. Next time I see it on sale for the Kindle, I am snatching it up, I hear it's yummy!

    1. Awww, Nereyda! I totally understand though. I hope you read and enjoy this series! It is quite a yummy series ;)

  17. So I saw they changed the cover for Erased (sad face) but I didn't see Altered. I went and looked now and gah. I know it's not a huge change compared to the original cover but why?! Why can't things just be left the way they are? I like my books matching, dammit. And I agree with an earlier comment, I like seeing more of them ;) I mean, I GUESS the new covers are little more eye popping but still. Cover changes mid-way through REALLY bother me.

    1. They changed the cover of both books! I prefer Altered's original cover, but I like Erased's new cover. I totally get you though - the ABS :D

      I agree with the irritation with cover changes, especially midway through a series. Because then I feel like I should have ALL of the books matching, and that means, buy a whole new set. Which is expensive. Bleh :\

    2. What I don't understand is why they don't just change the PAPERBACK covers. So those that are die-hards of the books will go out and buy BOTH the hardcover and paperback. I mean, that's what I did for Scorpio Races...I loved the paperback cover so much (and I loved the book that much) that I went out and bought that after having already owned the hardcover. It just makes me depressed to look at my bookshelf and see my books not match. Like I'm looking at Shatter Me right now and I'm glaring. (On the other hand, someone like Bloomsbury changed the Throne of Glass covers BUT they made their spines match, so I could give them a hug for that).

      I'm on the fence about the new covers. On the one hand, I like them more but on the other, I don't. But I think I'm with you, I like the new Erased but the old Altered lol!

    3. Ahhh, that makes sense. I would totally buy the hardcover set, and *maybe* the paperback set for this series. ONLY for this series though. And I so know what you mean about Shatter Me! My friend bought my the paperback for Christmas (thank goodness), and mine match, but I totally get it. And you know what? I never noticed the spines! But I also got the paperback of Throne of Glass, so mine match in that instance as well.

      I wish they could have stuck it out and waited until the series finished, but I get why they did. Probably wanted to market to a different audience. And right?! I'm glad I got the Altered hardcover (which you did too, right? It's so pretty. *pets*)
