Waiting on Wednesday - Uninvited

30 Oct 2013
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and it allows readers to share the books that they are most looking forwards to reading.

This week the book I have chosen to feature is Uninvited by Sophie Jordan.

Title: Uninvited

Author: Sophie Jordan

Series: Uninvited #1

Publisher: HarperTeen

Publication date: 28th January 2014

Links: Goodreads | Amazon | Amazon UK


The Scarlet Letter meets Minority Report in bestselling author Sophie Jordan's chilling new novel about a teenage girl who is ostracized when her genetic test proves she's destined to become a murderer.

When Davy Hamilton's tests come back positive for Homicidal Tendency Syndrome (HTS)-aka the kill gene-she loses everything. Her boyfriend ditches her, her parents are scared of her, and she can forget about her bright future at Juilliard. Davy doesn't feel any different, but genes don't lie. One day she will kill someone.

Only Sean, a fellow HTS carrier, can relate to her new life. Davy wants to trust him; maybe he's not as dangerous as he seems. Or maybe Davy is just as deadly.

My thoughts

I am VERY excited this book. Sophie Jordan is an incredible writer and this book just sounds incredible! I really am so intrigued by the synopsis and hope the book will be as awesome as it seems.


  1. I haven't read anything by Sophie Jordan yet, but this sounds so freaking awesome! I'm intrigued by the whole killer gene and whether finding out you've got it makes you more likely to kill someone.
    Great pick! :D
