Waiting On Wednesday: The Scorch Trials

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

Title: The Scorch Trials
Author: James Dashner
Publisher: Random House
Genre: YA Dystopian
Release Date: October 12, 2010

Why I Want This:
Stunningly, I could not find anything remotely close to a summary on this book ANYWHERE, which makes me just want to read this even more. While I am a bit frustrated from searching everywhere to learn more about this novel and coming out empty, the mystery is quite alluring. Anyway, after reading The Maze Runner (click HERE for a review on it) and after processing the shocking and unpredictable ending Dashner fed us, I'm sure any other Maze Runner fan out there would agree with me when I say I am DYING to read The Scorch Trials. The Maze Runner was an exhilarating experience with fast-paced action and suspenseful themes and because of that, I am extremely eager to read about the fates of our beloved heroes, Thomas, Theresa, Newt, Mino and the rest. According to The Gladers, readers are expected to see a lot more about the real world outside of the maze. The Scorch Trials picks up 4 hours after The Maze Runnerended, so I bet the intense sequences will begin right as we read the first page. Also, the cover looks quite promising.
I hate it when upon reading a great book, you are forced to wait long, agonizing months for the sequel. But once you finally get that book in your hands and flip open the cover, that rush of excitement that courses through you makes it worth the wait. Let's hope The Scorch Trials is worth the wait too.

Oh and also, check out this amazing trailer for The Maze Runner:
