Can’t Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme run by Wishful Endings and previously Breaking The Spine. We’re here to spotlight upcoming releases and tell you what we’re most excited to read. A great way to extend our ever-growing TBRs. Want to join in? Let @Tressa tell you all about it. Here now is my very first contribution!
VOX by Christina Dalcher
Release Date: 23rd August 2018
In a world where women are silenced, would you speak up?
Greetings, to all Pure Women.
You should all be fitted with your new wrist counters. A symbol of your purity and devotion to your family. Life is simpler now. Just 100 words a day.
Your role is in the house. Your husband takes care of everything else.
Instead, you should focus on values of modesty, submission, humility and purity. Love, honour and most importantly, obey. You know the rules. Just one word over 100 and your wrist counter will send 1,000 volts through your body. Choose your words carefully.
You have the right to remain silent.
VOX has been on my wish list for months now, I love a good dystopian, especially feasible ones. The how-it-happened explanations or character rationales can make or break this kind of book for me. I’ve seen a lot of trusted bloggers give high ratings for VOX so I’m hoping it’s well written. I started watching The Handmaids Tale recently and Naomi Alderman – Power is on my TBR for Newts Readathon 2018 so VOX fits perfectly into my current reading interests.
Have you read it? Will you buy it? Which books can’t you wait for?
Let me know..

I really loved Vox and thought it was a great concept and well executed. I hope you enjoy it when you get round to it!
I’ve had my eye on Vox and have some bookish friends who’ve had the pleasure to read it pre-release. Definitely added to my TBR!
