Waiting on Wednesday #29: Inheritance by Malinda Lo & Project Spark
“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where bloggers can rant and rave about any upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating. For my addition, I will be spotlighting an upcoming book AND sometimes I will throw in a video game release that I am dying to get my hands on!
This week in WoW, I’m obsessing over another sci-fi with aliens and a game for the Xbox One I’m dying to have! Check out my top pick this week and you’ll see why….
About the Book:
The triangular spaceship hovered motionless in the sky above Reese Holloway’s house, as inscrutable as a black hole. It had seemed like a good idea when they were inside: to tell the truth about what happened to them at Area 51. It didn’t seem like such a good idea now.
Reese and David are not normal teens—not since they were adapted with alien DNA by the Imria, an extraterrestrial race that has been secretly visiting Earth for decades. Now everyone is trying to get to them: the government, the Imria, and a mysterious corporation that would do anything for the upper hand against the aliens.
Beyond the web of conspiracies, Reese can’t reconcile her love for David with her feelings for her ex-girlfriend Amber, an Imrian. But her choice between two worlds will play a critical role in determining the future of humanity, the Imria’s place in it, and the inheritance she and David will bring to the universe.
In this gripping sequel to Adaptation, Malinda Lo brings a thoughtful exploration of adolescence, sexuality, and “the other” to a science fiction thriller that is impossible to put down.
So, why have I never heard of this series before now? Aliens, Area 51? Ummm this sounds like an epic read.

The developers won’t be limiting player creativity to a plain old controller. Microsoft’s Smart Glass and the Xbox One Kinect can assist in creation.
Project Spark has been on my radar since E3. It looks like an amazing open world game where anything is possible. I love creating my own environments and can already see myself losing a thousand hours of my life after its release.
