Waiting on Wednesday (#15)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we can't wait to get our hands on.  Mine for the week is:

Title: Revolution 19
Author: Gregg Rosenblum
Publisher: Harper Teen
Released: 8th January 2013

Twenty years ago, the robots designed to fight our wars abandoned the battlefields. Then they turned their weapons on us.

Only a few escaped the robot revolution of 2071. Kevin, Nick, and Cass are lucky —they live with their parents in a secret human community in the woods. Then their village is detected and wiped out. Hopeful that other survivors have been captured by bots, the teens risk everything to save the only people they have left in the world—by infiltrating a city controlled by their greatest enemies.

Revolution 19 is a cinematic thriller unlike anything else. With a dynamic cast of characters, this surefire blockbuster has everything teen readers want—action, drama, mystery, and romance. Written by debut novelist Gregg Rosenblum, this gripping story shouldn’t be missed.

Summary taken from GoodReads

A robot revolution, huh?  Now there's an interesting concept if ever there was one.  The idea of robots having that degree of awareness and perhaps even emotion is definitely intriguing.  The idea of them even fighting our wars in the first place makes me unable to decide whether that's lazy of humans or just ingenius. Probably both.  Either way, once again the race has landed themselves in their own mess.  Typical, eh? I can't wait to see what the author does with this!

What about you?  Link me up!


  1. I've never seen this before but I'm definitely intrigued now... Robots with awareness and motion, fighting our wars? Wow. I think that's probably a mix of laziness and geniosity!

    Thanks for bring this to my attention, Aa'Ishah <3

  2. EEEEEE, this book sounds AMAZING! I adore sci-fi/robot books! Great pic. ^^

    PS. Re: Your GoodReads comment I have finally got around to finishing Foretold and I loved it! <3

  3. Oh my, robot revolution... this sounds like a good thriller. Adding this to my wishlist. Thanks for sharing :)

  4. Ugh, super intelligent robots scare me. More than zombies or non-sparkly vampires. Maybe because it's not far off considering the fast pace of advancement in technology. Thanks for sharing, Aa'Ishah :D

  5. I love the concept here too! This sounds great. Awesome pick, Aa'Ishah!

  6. I haven't heard of this book but machines/robots being able to think or feel(?) has me thinking of Skynet and Terminator.
