Waiting on Wednesday: Salt & Stone by Victoria Scott

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Book Title: Salt & Stone (Fire & Flood #2)
Author: Victoria Scott
Expected Publication: February 24th 2015

Synopsis:  What would you do to save someone you love?

In FIRE & FLOOD, Tella Holloway faced a dangerous trek through the jungle and across the desert, all to remain a Contender in the Brimstone Bleed for a chance at obtaining the Cure for her brother. She can't quit--she has to win the race, save Cody, and then fight to make sure the race stops before it can claim any more lives. In the next legs of the race, across the ocean and over mountains, Tella will face frostbite, sharks, avalanche, and twisted new rules in the race.

But what if the danger is deeper than that? How do you know who to trust when everyone's keeping secrets? What do you do when the person you'd relied on most suddenly isn't there for support? How do you weigh one life against another?

The race is coming to an end, and Tella is running out of time, resources, and strength. At the start of the race there were one hundred twenty-two Contenders. As Tella and her remaining friends start the final part of the race, just forty-one are left--and only one can win.

(I got all the information from Goodreads)
I read the first book during my summer vacation while I was in Croatia and I totally fell in love with the storyline and everything in it, the second I finished the book the first thing on my mind was ~I need the second book now or I will explode~ haha and I love books that make me feel that way, I am so excited for it to come out you have no idea (unless you've also read and loved the first book like I did haha). The sad part is that it comes out next year (thankfully at the beginning of the year and not at the end or I would have gone crazy haha).

This isn't the first book I've read by Victoria Scott, I've also read the Dante Walker trilogy (which I of course loved) and I got to say that Victoria Scott will be on my auto buy list from now on, any book she writes I will definitely buy and read it!

Have you read Fire & Flood or any of her other books and did you enjoy them ?

    1. You should definitely read it!, aww but then you have to wait til February! haha, but yeah waiting is kind of better because if you end up loving it like I did then you have the second book to read right away, which is so much better than waiting a long time after finishing the first book haha
