Waiting on Wednesday (11)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases people are excited for.

Title: The 5th Wave
Author: Rick Yancey
Publisher: Putnam Juvenile
Format: Hardcover, 480 pages
Release Date: May 7, 2013


The Passage meets Ender’s Game in an epic new series from award-winning author Rick Yancey.

After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one.

Now, it’s the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth’s last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie’s only hope for rescuing her brother—or even saving herself. But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up.

Why I want it:

The 5th Wave looks really interesting. All of the hype (WOW Penguin Teen, you are really making me want this book with all of the cool marketing you've been doing!) for it has me even more curious about it too, so I will definitely be buying a copy when it comes out. Plus, all of the people I know that have read it have been loving it, so I'm pretty confident I will too.
What are you waiting on?

At ALA they bombarded me with this book and all the excitement they had for it. They kept trying to give me MORE copies just in case I hadn't already got one. And yes, people are RAVING about it. I might need to read it before I hear too much more about it.

Yep, I've seen good reviews of this and was lucky enough to snag a copy from the Aussi publisher via Netgalley!
