Waiting on Wednesday: Perfect Ruin by Lauren DeStefano

Perfect Ruin (Internment Chronicles, #1)

 The first in a new series, Perfect Ruin by Lauren DeStefano is making the rounds on the book blogs and I can see why. This looks (hey pretty cover) and sounds amazing. I am joining the bandwagon this week for Waiting on Wednesday.

On Internment, the floating island in the clouds where 16-year-old Morgan Stockhour lives, getting too close to the edge can lead to madness. Even though Morgan's older brother, Lex, was a Jumper, Morgan vows never to end up like him. She tries her best not to mind that her life is orderly and boring, and if she ever wonders about the ground, and why it is forbidden, she takes solace in best friend Pen and her betrothed, Basil.
Then a murder, the first in a generation, rocks the city. With whispers swirling and fear on the wind, Morgan can no longer stop herself from investigating, especially when she meets Judas. He is the boy being blamed for the murder — betrothed to the victim — but Morgan is convinced of his innocence. Secrets lay at the heart of Internment, but nothing can prepare Morgan for what she will find — or who she will lose. (GoodReads).

  1. I can't wait for this one either! I haven't read anything by Lauren DeStefano yet, but this sounds like an awesome place to start. I love the idea of a floating sky-island, it sounds magical.

  2. I'm really excited for this one. I loved Wither. I didn't like the sequel as much and I haven't read the third, but Lauren definitely has good potential.

  3. I love this cover, it sets the scene perfectly for the description!

  4. This does sound so interesting. I love the floating island idea and always like a good murder mystery. Great pick!

  6. This one sounds great, but I didn't love Wither, so I'm not sure if I'm going to read this one.
