Waiting on Wednesday (13)


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

Title: In the After 
Author: Demitria Lunetta
Publisher: HarperTeen
Format: Hardcover, 400 pages
Release Date: June 25, 2013

Summary:

They hear the most silent of footsteps.
They are faster than anything you've ever seen.
And They won't stop chasing you...until you are dead.

Amy is watching TV when it happens, when the world is attacked by Them. These vile creatures are rapidly devouring mankind. Most of the population is overtaken, but Amy manages to escape—and even rescue “Baby,” a toddler left behind in the chaos. Marooned in Amy’s house, the girls do everything they can to survive—and avoid Them at all costs.

After years of hiding, they are miraculously rescued and taken to New Hope, a colony of survivors living in a former government research compound. While at first the colony seems like a dream with plenty of food, safety, and shelter, New Hope slowly reveals that it is far from ideal. And Amy soon realizes that unless things change, she’ll lose Baby—and much more.

Rebellious, courageous, and tender, this unforgettable duo will have you on the edge of your seat as you tear through the pulse-pounding narrow escapes and horrifying twists of fate in this thrilling debut from author Demitria Lunetta.

Why I want it:

I've been wanting to read In the After ever since the deal for it was announced. It is one of my most anticipated books for this year.

I pretty much only read books that have romance in them (it doesn't have to be a huge part of the book, but there has to be something), but it looks like there isn't a romance in In the After, and I don't even care because the book looks sooo good. I can't wait to read about Amy and Baby, and find out about Them. 

I just really want to read In the After! June 25 can't get here soon enough!

What are you waiting on?

Looks good to me!

Huh, Harlequin TEEN books usually have a romance in them.

Sam said...

Great pick! I'm really looking forward to this one myself. Although I always like a little bit of romance in most of my books, too, I'm glad that there doesn't appear to be an obvious one here. :)

I had to check and I did just acquire a digital copy of this one. Now I am more excited to read it after reading this post!

Great pick! I've heard fantastic things about this one from the people who've been lucky to get an ARC through Edelweiss of Harper themselves and I really can't wait to read this one! It looks so creepy and I agree! Even if there wasn't any romance In the After just sounds that good :)

I hope you enjoy it when you get it!

I might have this one... that cover looks really familiar. I didn't recognize the description though and it sounds really good though maybe a tad scary (intense anyway!).

I just checked and I do have it. If you want to borrow it you're welcome to it. I won't get to it until June anyway. Just let me know!

Oh, I'm really curious what is 'Them'! I suspect they might be zombies though hehe. I really like the premise of this book, it sounds so different! The heroine sounds very responsible as well, I'll make sure to add this to my TBR list! :)

Awesome pick, Alicia! <3
