  • Do a post telling your readers about the book and why it's on your wishlist.

The Pledge by Kimberly Derting
Goodreads synopsis:

In the violent country of Ludania, the classes are strictly divided by the language they speak. The smallest transgression, like looking a member of a higher class in the eye while they are speaking their native tongue, results in immediate execution. Seventeen-year-old Charlaina has always been able to understand the languages of all classes, and she's spent her life trying to hide her secret. The only place she can really be free is the drug-fueled underground clubs where people go to shake off the oppressive rules of the world they live in. It's there that she meets a beautiful and mysterious boy named Max who speaks a language she's never heard before . . . and her secret is almost exposed.

Charlie is intensely attracted to Max, even though she can't be sure where his real loyalties lie. As the emergency drills give way to real crisis and the violence escalates, it becomes clear that Charlie is the key to something much bigger: her country's only chance for freedom from the terrible power of a deadly regime.

I've wanted The Pledge for a while now. I entered a giveaway for it on Goodreads not too long ago, but wasn't successful in winning unfortunately - and I haven't been successful in giveaways from my fellow bloggers either. I am determined to eventually get my hands on a copy though!
I think it sounds like such a unique novel, but at the same time it has all the elements I love in the books I read; mystery, danger and a sprinkle of romance.
I am definitely going to be on the lookout for this one! Let me know if there's one lurking around somewhere ;)

Have you read The Pledge? What did you think of it? Or, like me, do you really want to read it too?
Let me know in the comments :)
I'm looking forward to seeing all the other Wishlist Wednesday posts this week!

I keep seeing this book pop up on blogs a lot. I should probably reconsider about putting it on my wishlist!

That's where I kept seeing it originally as well. It's been on there for a while now. I've entered another blog giveaway for it, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

I've got this one Dani, haven't got round to it yet though. It looks a fab book and the cover is appealing.
I hope you get it soon :D

Same here, I entered lots of giveaways but wasn't lucky enough to get a copy so far (and I didn't want to order one until the giveaways end) - it sounds like a great read though. Something I'd definitely enjoy. :)
