Waiting on Wednesday #2: The Glass Arrow by Kristen Simmons

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

The Glass Arrow by Kristen Simmons
Publication Date: February 10, 2015
Publisher: Tor Teen

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. 

Why Am I Excited For This Book?
I just want to start by saying I really like this cover. Especially the lettering for the title. I really enjoy reading dystopian books. 
And this summary makes the book sound really interesting and definitely something that I will enjoy reading. And I think it is a stand-alone book. Which also excites me.
I haven't read Kristen's other books the Article 5 series, but I might have to give them a read to hold me over until February gets here. I can't wait to get a copy of this book in my hands! 

Also, I just want to share that Kristen posted a The Glass Arrow Teaser Quote a couple of days ago!

And she currently has an AMAZING giveaway up on her blog for the chance to win some The Glass Arrow swag! You should check that out HERE! It closes in 6 days and some hours!
I totally want some of that swag! 

What book are you waiting on this Wednesday? Are you excited for The Glass Arrow? 


  1. I had seen this one around for awhile but for some reason it wasn't on my radar until recently. It's sounds really good. I loved The Handmaid's Tale and I love that it combines that idea with a strong female protagonist fighting for survival. *adds to TBR*

    1. Yay! It does sound really good! I haven't read the Handmaid's Tale yet. I think I will need to try and do that soon. And yes! Strong female character fighting for survival. I can't wait to read it! I hope you read it and enjoy it! (Sorry for responding late!)
