Waiting on Wednesday: The Replaced by Kimberly Derting

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

This week, what's really got my pages in a twist is...

The Replaced
(The Taking #2)
Publication Date: April 28, 2015
Hardcover, 368 pages, HarperTeen
Genres: Sci-Fi, Young Adult

Romantic and action-packed, The Replaced is the gripping second installment in the Taking trilogy.

Kyra hasn't been the same since she returned from her mysterious five-year disappearance. Now, on the run from the NSA, Kyra is forced to hide out with others who, like her, have been Returned. Yet she is determined to find Tyler, the boy she loves who was also abducted—all because of her. When her group intercepts a message that Tyler might still be alive but is in the hands of a shadowy government organization that experiments on the Returned, Kyra knows it's a risk to go after him. What if it's a trap? And worse, what if the returned Tyler isn't the same boy she lost?

Perfect for fans of The Fifth Wave and the Body Finder series, The Replaced is both chilling and explosive, with creepy, otherworldly elements and twisty, psychological thrills that will have you questioning what exactly it means to be human.

My Thoughts

The first book ended on a cliffhanger, so I’m ready to get my hands on this, even though the book was kind of just okay. Good, not great. Know what I mean?

What book are you waiting for this Wednesday?


  1. I thought The Taking was a lot of fun. And like you pointed out, that cliffhanger! I have to find out what happens next!

  2. I just got this from Edelweiss yesterday! Score! Great pick! Here's mine
