Waiting on Wednesday: The 5th Wave
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted over at Breaking the Spine, looking at upcoming books we bloggers are already obsessing about. This week, I’m looking forward to yet another dystopian. I know! But this one comes with huge buzz from Penguin Teen Australia, who have pretty impeccable taste. I can’t wait to sink my teeth into The 5th Wave by 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.”

So, are you guys ready for the next big thing in YA dystopia? I’m really hoping this one lives up to the hype. Because if so, it should be fantastic!
What are you Waiting On this Wednesday, hmm?
