Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
An action-packed, blood-soaked, futuristic debut thriller set in a world where the murder rate is higher than the birthrate. For fans of Moira Young’s Dust Lands series, La Femme Nikita, and the movie Hanna.
Meadow Woodson, a fifteen-year-old girl who has been trained by her father to fight, to kill, and to survive in any situation, lives with her family on a houseboat in Florida. The state is controlled by The Murder Complex, an organization that tracks the population with precision.
The plot starts to thicken when Meadow meets Zephyr James, who is—although he doesn’t know it—one of the MC’s programmed assassins. Is their meeting a coincidence? Destiny? Or part of a terrifying strategy? And will Zephyr keep Meadow from discovering the haunting truth about her family?
Action-packed, blood-soaked, and chilling, this is a dark and compelling debut novel by Lindsay Cummings.

Why I am Waiting...
- I have been following Lindsay on Instagram for quite some time and well right from the start her enthusiasm had me excited.
- Read the synopsis and tell me that you aren't wishing that it was June 10th like yesterday so you could already be reading this!
- I have a thing for red covers... I do not know why and well this one nailed it!! Heck just writing this I feel that I should be pre-ordering so that this eye catching red cover could be in my hands ASAP!
- I actually watched HANNA last night and just seeing it mentioned in the synopsis has me super excited for what sounds like it will be the dystopian/thriller of the YEAR!!
Are you excited for The Murder Complex?!
What are you waiting on?!
