Mom - Waiting on Wed

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we are all eagerly anticipating.

This week I’m anxiously waiting on The Last Star by Rick Yancey. I’ll be honest. I purposely have put off reading The Infinite Sea until this one is released. I really liked The 5th Wave but I HATE cliffhangers and that one ended on a bad one. So with only a month left, I thought I could hold off. I love Yancey’s take on an alien invasion/dystopian. And the writing style is my favorite — narrative.

What are you not-so-patiently waiting on this Wednesday?

Series: The 5th Wave,
Published by G. P. Putnam's Sons Books for Young Readers on 2016-05-24
Length: 352 pages

We’re here, then we’re gone, and that was true before they came. That’s always been true. The Others didn’t invent death; they just perfected it. Gave death a face to put back in our face, because they knew that was the only way to crush us. It won’t end on any continent or ocean, no mountain or plain, jungle or desert. It will end where it began, where it had been from the beginning, on the battlefield of the last beating human heart.

Master storyteller Rick Yancey invokes triumph, loss, and unrelenting action as the fate of the planet is decided in the conclusion to this epic series.

    • I really enjoyed the first one ( except the cliffhanger)! If I could do it over, I’d wait and binge read. If you like scifi, it’s a must read! Hope you enjoy it when you pick it up 😉
