Waiting on Wednesday (#98): Catalyst by Lydia Kang


"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:


Catalyst by Lydia Kang
Book Two of the Control series
Publisher: Kathy Dawson Books
Publication: March 24, 2015

Summary (from Goodreads):

For fans of Uglies and The Maze Runner comes a complex, thrill-filled love story that will make you question exactly what it means to be human.

In the past year Zel lost her father, the boy she loves, her safety, and any future she might have imagined for herself. Now she, her sister, and the band of genetic outcasts they've come to call their family are forced on the run when their safe house is attacked by men with neural guns. But on the way to a rumored haven in Chicago, Zel hears something--a whisper from Cy, the boy who traded himself for her sister's safety. And when she veers off plan in order to search for him, what she finds is not what she expected. There's more to their genetic mutations than they ever imagined...aspects that make them wonder if they might be accepted by the outside world after all.



I loved Control! Book two, please :D

  1. Oh, this sounds SO freaking good!!!! I had not heard of this series before, but I'm now intrigued. VERY. It sounds like a dystopia, right? Some people say they're tired of dystopias, but not me! Bring it on! So I'm adding this (as well as "Control") to my GR shelves at once! Thanks for sharing!! : )

    1. It's science fiction! Not necessarilydystopian. Personally, I AM sick of dystopia novels. But this isn't one. I hope you enjoy these books if/when you read them! :D
