Waiting on Wednesday (21)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. This week's can't-wait-to-read selection is..

  Title: Circus Summer
  Author: Kailin Gow
  Publisher: theEdgebooks
  Published: June 5, 2012
  Pages: ??
Every season, the Circus of Curiosities visits the city, bringing with it the most fantastic circus acts that are beautiful, majestic, and death-defying. Every season performers for these acts are chosen from the young men and women in each town, trained, and sent to perform in a televised performance, performed literally to the death.

Two performers from Sea Cliff, a beach town at the outskirts of the major city find themselves chosen to be in this Summer's Circus Act. Both must win at any cost, but could they ignore their budding feelings for each other?
So I picked this one because two novels immediately spring to mind when I read the synopsis: The Hunger Games and The Night Circus. It's seriously like they had a baby, which makes me want to read this to see if it's a straight rip off, or if it's coincidental that it sounds like those two novels. If it's different than those two novels, then this book would be AWESOME.

What are you waiting on?

This sounds like it'll be a great read, although I'm definitely picking up The Hunger Games vibes from it. I haven't read The Night Circus (yet), but the synopsis reminded me of that too. Hopefully it'll be a nice, unique novel, and not a complete rip off.

Thank you for considering me, but this blog is an award free zone for my own personal reasons.
