Waiting on Wednesdays: The 5th Wave

A weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine, join us as we highlight titles we would like to read. 


This book just strikes me as an amazing read. Here is the GoodReads summary for it:


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.



It gives me the chills! Early feedback from the title is it is suppose to be AMAZING! What do you all think--are you going to give it a try? It comes out on May 7--only a couple weeks to go. 

What are you looking forward to being published this week?

Happy Reading!

  9. Sounds fascinating!! It's so creepy that the predators look like humans! I hope it doesn't make it sound like cannibalism when describing the killings. Then again, let's just hope the killings aren't described too vividly.

    Thanks for stopping by!

    1. I know, that is a slight concern of mine too but we could always stop reading if it gets to be too much.

      Thank you for coming by today Angie and Happy Reading!

  10. I'm starting to see reviews of The Fifth Wave popping up around the place, so I can't wait to read it! Ever since I saw someone rave on how much they loved Rick Yancey's writing, I checked out one of his previous books, The Monstrumologist, and am absolutely petrified by it. That's saying a lot, considering that I read bloody murders and don't blink an eye. Fantastic pick this week!

    Thanks for stopping by my WoW!
