Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It lets us all gush about what soon-to-be released books we are jumping-up-and-down excited for.

Whispers in Autumn
by Trisha Leigh

publishing on July 24th, 2012

In 2015, a race of alien Others conquered Earth. They enslaved humanity not by force, but through an aggressive mind control that turned people into contented, unquestioning robots.

Except sixteen-year-old Althea isn’t content at all, and she doesn’t need the mysterious note inside her locket to tell her she’s Something Else. It also warns her to trust no one, so she hides the pieces that make her different, even though it means being alone.

The autumn she meets Lucas, everything changes.

Althea and Lucas are immune to the alien mind control, and together they search for the reason why. What they uncover is a stunning truth the Others never anticipated, one with the potential to free the brainwashed human race.

It’s not who they are that makes them special, but what.

And what they are is a threat. One the Others are determined to eliminate for good.

My thoughts: When I saw that flippin' gorgeous cover and read the alien-invaded synopsis, this immediately went onto my must-read wishlist! This sounds really awesome and the description has me intriqued...just what are they?? I can't wait to find out.


  1. I agree! That cover is stunning! And the summary has me curious too!.

  2. Loved the cover and the summary! Now I only have to love the book :DD
    One question: why do authors seem to (extremely) like the name Althea? I mean, honestly, there are other nice names!!
