Welcome to my favorite Feature:

“Waiting on” Wednesday is hosted weekly by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

 

 

 

This week, I have something super unique for you..

Eve and Adam

Expected publication: October 2012 by Feiwel & Friends
Eve and Adam by by Katherine Applegate
Sixteen-year-old Evening Spiker lives an affluent life in San Francisco with her mother, EmmaRose, a successful geneticist and owner of Spiker Biotech. Sure, Evening misses her father who died mysteriously, but she’s never really questioned it. Much like how she’s never stopped to think how off it is that she’s never been sick. That is, until she’s struck by a car and is exposed to extensive injuries. Injuries that seem to be healing faster than physically possible.While recuperating in Spiker Biotech’s lush facilities, she meets Solo Plissken, a very attractive, if off-putting boy her age who spent his life at Spiker Biotech. Like Evening, he’s never questioned anything…until now. Solo drops hints to Evening that something isn’t right, and Emma-Rose may be behind it. Evening puts this out of her mind and begins her summer internship project: To simulate the creation of the perfect boy. With the help of Solo, Evening uncovers secrets so big they could change the world completely
Ok seriously? This sounds awesome!! I mean I am Biologist myself, (PhD in stem cell research) so obviously books like this which focus on genetics is something I just love! The names sound a little weird, who would name their child “Evening” but….
But, the name Solo – totally reminds me of my hero of past times, Han Solo.. 😉
Totally want to read this!!
So, what about you my friends? Show me what you are waiting for!
Much Love,
Obsessive Reader by Night – Scientist at Day!
You can also find me on goodreads. I’d love to get to know you so, don’t be shy and say Hello!

  1. This really sounds fabulous! 🙂
    I can’t wait for it either !
    The cover is so gorgeous! <3

    You're a biologist ! 😀 😀 😀
    I'm going to be one too ! (Hopefully) I'm starting college in a couple of months and I've opted for a major in Biology. If I plan to do a PhD, it'll probably be in Neuroscience or Immunology though, but Genetics sounds fantastic! 🙂
    I'm so glad I met a fellow Biology lover 😀

    • I get that this might not be a book for everyone, but me? I think that’s the kind of story I have to read, I love the combination of science and dystopian. I’m always intrigued how the authors research and how much for this is already real science!

    • You are?? What’s your topic?

      And this is exactly what kind of things interest me too, how the authors do their research and how much real science they wave into their fiction. I just read The Lost Code and there, they actually talked about science that although it sounded like fiction was actual real, I liked this a lot!

      • I’m a biochemist. So I guess we are doing similar work 🙂
        The Lost Code? I haven’t heard of this one, but I’m always up for decent science in fiction. I also appreciate that non-scientists can then learn something about science.

    WOOOW! This looks absolutely FABULOUS. Definitely unique – I haven’t seen this book yet! I’m currently studying Biology as one of my Year 12 students so this has definitely grabbed my interest. ;D I’ll look into getting it if I can! GREAT CHOICE!

    And WOW – PhD in Stem Cell Research? THAT’S FABULOUS. *applause*
