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

Title: The Glass Arrow by Kristen Simmons
Genre: Young Adult, Dystopia
Publisher: Tor Teen
Release date: February 10th 2015
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/15750874-the-glass-arrow
The Handmaid’s Tale meets Blood Red Road in Glass Arrow, the story of Aya, who lives with a small group of women on the run from the men who hunt them, men who want to auction off breeding rights to the highest bidder.

In a world where females are scarce and are hunted, then bought and sold at market for their breeding rights, 15-year old Aya has learned how to hide. With a ragtag bunch of other women and girls, she has successfully avoided capture and eked out a nomadic but free existence in the mountains. But when Aya’s luck runs out and she’s caught by a group of businessmen on a hunting expedition, fighting to survive takes on a whole new meaning.

This looks so good! :) I have never heard of it before so I will have to put it on the wishlist for when it comes out!

The perks of it being fall is that all the books we saw last year are coming out now! However, the downside is that the books we are seeing now are not oout till next year! :/

Thanks for sharing! :D

Such a pretty cover. This book seems like a very classic type of fantasy story, I can't wait :D

Interesting concept.

Putting the traditional Heroine role as one even more valued by the scarcity of it's very gender. Extremist patriarchal societies where Females are dehumanized are a little hard for me to get into, being a single Father of 8 Daughters, with 4 elementary school aged girls still at home, but if the Heroine is strong enough to empower the remnant of the gender, I could probably read it.
