Waiting On Wednesday||❤

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

The book I can't wait to be published is.......
The Remnants 
by Anna Scanlon
Publication Date: November 13th




The Nazis have won WWII (or as it is now known, The Greatest War) almost 70 years ago. Having established an Elite class of descendants of former leaders during WWII, Stella Goering, great-granddaughter of Hitler's right-hand man, Hermann Goering, enjoys a privileged life in the capital of city of New Berlin (formerly New York City). There, citizens of the Reich live happily without the burdens of the racially inferior who have since become extinct. 

As a daughter of the Elite, Stella has attained celebrity status. But she finds the bright lights and magazine write ups a constant distraction from her self-imposed destiny of serving the Reich as a doctor. She even finds the yearly ritual of all citizens testing their blood for purity more of a nuisance than a patriotic gesture. And as a daughter of the Elite, she must have it done publicly, in front of all of Germania. But this year, Stella's tests are showing something she never expected: her genes link her to a race she thought was long extinct: the Jews. 

Convinced this is a plot from the Japanese to destroy the Reich's confidence in its leaders, Stella relies blindly on the Elite to protect her until the situation can be proved a conspiracy; otherwise she will be punished by death. After all, the Reich has always protected her. But Stella quickly learns that what's true and false in the Reich isn't so black and white and that those she's always trusted don't always have her best interest at heart…


Why I'm Waiting This Wednesday?
First of, I love historical books about the war or even before that so it ticks one box. Again, I have picked another book which has been made by a blogger called Anna. She is a student and has already written other books about the war, which have actually received excellent feedback on goodreads. What I really love is that she hasn't just done the casual beauty or fashionista type book but has actually dug deep enough to be able to talk about serious issues. I just love the description Amazon gave and it tells us how Jews were still an issue post WWII. I can't wait to buy this book and will preorder it later this week. This is probably book I am most excited about waiting for.

Keep Reading,
Naomi...xxx

  6. This looks SO absolutely FABULOUS!!! I love the concept of how an "elite" girl has the tables suddenly turned on her. And the whole idea of the Nazis having won WWII is very scary.....

    The only problem with this book, for me, is that I don't like to read ebooks, and this one is not available in a printed edition. I know -- I've just checked on Amazon. I just don't like to read ebooks, even if they're free! Yeah, you might think I'm crazy, but I ADORE printed books!!

    What to do, since I REALLY want to read this book? Well, I think I'll email the author to ask if she will release a printed edition of it. (Crossing my fingers!!)

    Thanks for putting this one on my radar! thanks as well for dropping by and commenting on my WOW!! : )
