Wishlist Wednesday is a meme hosted by Pen to Paper where bloggers can show every Wednesday what book they are
lusting over wanting that is on their TBR list.
Title: The 5th Wave
Author: Rick Yancey
Publication date: Math 7, 2013
Publisher: Putnam Juvenile
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:
This one is actually out already, which is unlike the books I usually put on Wishlist Wednesday. However, I haven't heard one bad review for it. Hearing all good reviews make me excited, but also nervous because that's a lot of expectations to put on one book. Whenever someone talks about it, they say how it's the next "big thing." Can I have this in my hands already please?
What are you wishing for this Wednesday? ...although most of you are probably at BEA and are getting those things RIGHT NOW *grumble*
