Waiting on Wednesday. A Conspiracy of Stars

Wednesday, 13 December 2017


"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week on WoW is A Conspiracy of Stars by Olivia A. Cole. I don't know if it has already happened to you but: I'm not really fond of the synopsis of this book, however there a few details (as a magical jungle) that just appeal to me, making me think that maybe you shouldn't read a book by it's synopsis. 😋 Does it make sense? Also, the cover! *.* I just love the minimalistic style and colours chosen. The book will be released on January 2nd 2018.

"Octavia has only ever had one goal: to follow in the footsteps of her parents and become a prestigious whitecoat, one of the scientists who study the natural wonders of Faloiv. The secrets of the jungle’s exotic plants and animals are protected fiercely in the labs by the Council of N’Terra, so when the rules suddenly change, allowing students inside, Octavia should be overjoyed.

But something isn’t right. The newly elected leader of the Council has some extremist views about the way he believes N’Terra should be run, and he’s influencing others to follow him. When Octavia witnesses one of the Faloii—the indigenous people of Faloiv—attacked in front of her in the dark of night, she knows the Council is hiding something. They are living in separate worlds on a shared planet, and their fragile peace may soon turn into an all-out war.

With the help of Rondo, a quiet boy in class with a skill for hacking, and her inquisitive best friend, Alma, Octavia is set on a collision course to discover the secrets behind the history she’s been taught, the science she’s lived by, and the truth about her family.

  1. That cover is absolutely stunning! And this is author I've heard of - I hope you really enjoy this one as it sounds like something I'd love too. My offering this week is a quirky-sounding children's fantasy about shadows...

  2. I agree with you about not always judging a book by its synopsis. I've read terrible synopses that ended up actually being great books and the opposite too, the synopsis sounded fabulous but the book ended up being a DNF. This one sounds pretty interesting though. I like the focus on science. Hope you enjoy it!

  3. I agree with you on the synopsis comment as well. I like reading them, but I usually don't completely decide on whether or not I'll read something based on it. Usually I read some reviews and the first couple of chapters, and then if I'm not hooked by that point - not the book for me. This one looks really good though! At first, I was going to pass it up actually, but the more reviews I read for it, the more I need it in my life. Great pick! :)

  4. I think this book cover looks like a lot of other ones out there. However, I am also intrigued by the magical jungle aspect. I'm not ruling it out yet but would like to see some reviews before I dive in.

  7. The synopsis has me scratching my head a little, but there are some things that definitely caught my interest. Prestigious whitecoat (tell me more), who protect the secrets of the jungle (why is that), and a girl who along with her hacker and curious friend will discover the secrets. Sounds very intriguing.
