"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
Slight difference to this week's Waiting on Wednesday for me! The Star is a Spanish dystopian YA novel that's currently only had the first chapter translated into English. Authors Javi Araguz and Isabel Hierro are asking people to request that it's translated into English at this page, and having read the first chapter I'll add my voice to theirs - I really want to see what happens next!
That first chapter can be found here, while there's also a book trailer and a 'making of' for the Spanish cover. If you speak Spanish, you can also check out the blog and some praise for the book (if you do, please let me know what they're saying!)

I speak spanish but I don't really want to read it in spanish. I'm so used to reading my YA books in english, I don't think I'd get quite the usual kick.ReplyDelete
