Book I Covet: Ashes, Ashes by Jo Treggiari

Why I covet this book: It sounds like a book that's full of heart-pounding action (in the way of The Hunger Games series) with a kick-ass heroine set in a post-apocalyptic world full of danger and darkness.

That cover... perfect fit for the blurb!

And speaking of... that blurb has me wondering: Who is Aidan? The love interest? Who are the Sweepers? Why are they looking for Lucy? What's so special about her? Is there hope for survival in this world?

A thrilling tale of adventure, romance, and one girl's unyielding courage through the darkest of nightmares.

Epidemics, floods, droughts--for sixteen-year-old Lucy, the end of the world came and went, taking 99% of the population with it. As the weather continues to rage out of control, and Sweepers clean the streets of plague victims, Lucy survives alone in the wilds of Central Park. But when she's rescued from a pack of hunting dogs by a mysterious boy named Aidan, she reluctantly realizes she can't continue on her own. She joins his band of survivors, yet, a new danger awaits her: the Sweepers are looking for her. There's something special about Lucy, and they will stop at nothing to have her.

"Books I Covet" is a weekly or bi-weekly blog post series I am going to be doing here.
It will feature books I am very excited about reading and plan on buying/borrowing in the near future. It is similar to the "Waiting On" meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine. However, some of the books may already be published and others may still be in pre-order. I will include the books' blurb, cover art, and/or release date if they're available.
