Waiting on Wednesday (#283): Wildcard by Marie Lu

"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:

Wildcard by Marie Lu
Book Two of the Warcross series
Publisher: G.P. Putnam's Sons Books for Young Readers
Publication Date: September 18, 2018

Summary (from Goodreads):

Emika Chen barely made it out of the Warcross Championships alive. Now that she knows the truth behind Hideo's new NeuroLink algorithm, she can no longer trust the one person she's always looked up to, who she once thought was on her side.

Determined to put a stop to Hideo's grim plans, Emika and the Phoenix Riders band together, only to find a new threat lurking on the neon-lit streets of Tokyo. Someone's put a bounty on Emika's head, and her sole chance for survival lies with Zero and the Blackcoats, his ruthless crew. But Emika soon learns that Zero isn't all that he seems--and his protection comes at a price.

Caught in a web of betrayal, with the future of free will at risk, just how far will Emika go to take down the man she loves?

Okay confession time! I have not read Warcross yet. I started to read it last year but when I saw so many people moaning about the ending, I decided to wait until book two was published. So by default, I'm very excited about Wildcard!


  1. I can't WAIT for this one!!!

  2. Very smart! The only reason why I read Warcross last year instead of waiting like I initially planned was because I won an ARC! So I am positively itching to get my hands on an ARC of this one because the wait has been too long. I've had no luck so it looks like I will be waiting some more. Sigh...

    But very, very smart call! ;)

    Here's my WoW

    Have a GREAT day!

  3. I NEEEEEEED this book sooooooo bad! I do like binge reading books together so I get the waiting. :)

  4. I haven't read Warcross either, but I hope both books live up to your expectations!😁

  5. I haven't read Warcross either Alyssa. Same reason I was seeing to many reviews with the ending issue. I will need to wait for the second one to come out!

  6. lol😂 YES! Warcross ending is nuts! But it's almost time and you must read it now because its amazing!!!
    💋 xoxo

  7. I haven't read Warcross either so I'm happy at least some people haven't read it yet. Hehe

  8. I haven't read the first either, but both are definitely tempting!:D

  9. Eee, I am SO excited about this one :D Great pick Alyssa. <3 But pfff. You must read Warcross too ;) The ending was not that bad, to be honest. Shrugs ;)

  10. I own the first book so far, so I need to read that first before checking this one out. Awesome pick!

    Here’s my WoW!

  11. These covers really make my eyes hurt, but I can't wait to continue with the series with this one either!

  12. I want this one so bad. I have already been rejected for the eGalley. So, I will have to wait and wait and wait, and seeing all the ARCs of it on Twitter and Instagram are making me sad that I was unable to attend BEA/BookCon, but it's just a few months. I really need to know where this story is going.

  13. Hope you love Warcross and this one!!! :)
