Waiting on Wednesday: Icons by Margaret Stohl

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

This week’s can’t wait to read selection is
Icons by Margareth Stohl.
Publication Date: May 7th 2013.

Icons – Little, Brown Books

Everything changed on The Day. The day the windows shattered. The day the power stopped. The day Dol's family dropped dead. The day Earth lost a war it didn't know it was fighting.
Since then, Dol has lived a simple life in the countryside -- safe from the shadow of the Icon and its terrifying power. Hiding from the one truth she can't avoid.
She's different. She survived. Why?
When Dol and her best friend, Ro, are captured and taken to the Embassy, off the coast of the sprawling metropolis once known as the City of Angels, they find only more questions. While Ro and fellow hostage Tima rage against their captors, Dol finds herself drawn to Lucas, the Ambassador's privileged son. But the four teens are more alike than they might think, and the timing of their meeting isn't a coincidence. It's a conspiracy.
Within the Icon's reach, Dol, Ro, Tima, and Lucas discover that their uncontrollable emotions -- which they've always thought to be their greatest weaknesses -- may actually be their greatest strengths.
Synopsis from goodreads.com

I recall that I said that dystopias seem to take over my reading and waiting list. I try to limit this, but I will happily make an exception for Margaret Stohl. And this also sounds more like post-apocalypse rather than dystopia (yes, I’m fishing for excuses, but I think that these two are different categories).

Is there a genre that dominates your reading lists voluntarily or accidentally? Tell us in the comments along with your Waiting On pick of the week!
