“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that book bloggers are eagerly anticipating.
This week’s WoW pick is the second in a very popular series:
Expected publication date: September 16th 2014
The riveting follow-up to the New York Times bestselling The 5th Wave, hailed by Justin Cronin as “wildly entertaining.”
How do you rid the Earth of seven billion humans? Rid the humans of their humanity.
Surviving the first four waves was nearly impossible. Now Cassie Sullivan finds herself in a new world, a world in which the fundamental trust that binds us together is gone. As the 5th Wave rolls across the landscape, Cassie, Ben, and Ringer are forced to confront the Others’ ultimate goal: the extermination of the human race.
Cassie and her friends haven’t seen the depths to which the Others will sink, nor have the Others seen the heights to which humanity will rise, in the ultimate battle between life and death, hope and despair, love and hate.
I never got a chance to write a review of The 5th Wave but I do have to say that it was one of the most stressful and terrifying books about the future that I’ve read in the last few years. It’s not what I consider a fun read, but it is a DAMN good one, and nothing will stop me from reading book #2. I need to know what happens to kick-butt Cassie, Evan, and the crazy people who are trying to kill off humanity. September can’t come soon enough!
