Waiting On Wednesday: The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we’re dying for panting over eagerly awaiting the chance to read.

My pick for this week is The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey!

the5thwaveComing May 7, 2013
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.

I am beyond excited for this book. Everyone’s raving – I have yet to hear a single bad thing about it! Only a few more days until I have this precioussssss….

What are you patiently waiting on?

    Yes, I’ve been SO interested in this book. I actually downloaded a chapter sampler and started reading it the other day. Wow. I’m so hooked! I really can’t wait to get my hands on the book so I can read the rest of it now!

You can read a bit more about my awesomeness and how Twilight Sleep came to be (the name has absolutely NOTHING to do with the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer, contrary to popular belief) on the about page. :]
