Waiting on Wednesday (3)

Hi Guys,
This is my third Waiting on Wednesday (WoW) post. I know I didn't post a WoW last week, but I think it would be easier for me to just do a WoW every other week. Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This Wednesday I'm waiting on:

Dualed (Dualed 1)

Goodreads' Synopsis:

Would you live through the ultimate test of survival?
The city of Kersh is a safe haven, but the price of safety is high. Everyone has a genetic Alternate—a twin raised by another family—and citizens must prove their worth by eliminating their Alts before their twentieth birthday. Survival means advanced schooling, a good job, marriage—life.
Fifteen-year-old West Grayer has trained as a fighter, preparing for the day when her assignment arrives and she will have one month to hunt down and kill her Alt. But then a tragic misstep shakes West’s confidence. Stricken with grief and guilt, she’s no longer certain that she’s the best version of herself, the version worthy of a future. If she is to have any chance of winning, she must stop running not only from her Alt, but also from love . . . though both have the power to destroy her.

When I saw the cover of this book, I thought: "Wow, another dystopian novel... which series will this be a copy of? The Hunger Games? Matched? Under the Never Sky?" I felt this way, that is, until I read the subtitle "You or your alt? Only one will survive." After reading this, I thought: "I love a good battle to the death, this book sounds amazing already... but wait... what is an Alt?" Then I read the synopsis, and I fell in love! This book sounds so original, and if there are other books like it out there, I haven't read them. A dystopian setting, a seemingly strong female lead, and a battle to the death... with YOURSELF... what more could you ask for? I'm really excited for this book, but I have to wait until February... OF NEXT YEAR! UGH! Why must I be forced to wait so long... well, I guess that's life, you have to wait for something good... and I'm sure that this book will be phenomenal. Dualed is going to be at the top of my "2013 Releases" list. Are you guys waiting for this book, leave a comment telling me what book your waiting for today. Stay posted on the blog, to see what I'll be waiting for next Wednesday... or the Wednesday after that.
