Happy Halloween, everyone! Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and is a fun way to share the books we’re excited about reading. This week I’m waiting on:
Rush by Eve Silver. Release date: May 14 2013 (Katherine Tegen Books). Looks like the start to a new series, and it’s science fiction, which I’m seeing a lot more of in YA lately. Here’s what Goodreads says:
When Miki Jones is pulled from her life, pulled through time and space into some kind of game—her carefully controlled life spirals into chaos. In the game, she and a team of other teens are sent on missions to eliminate the Drau, terrifying and beautiful alien creatures. There are no practice runs, no training, and no way out. Miki has only the guidance of secretive but maddeningly attractive team leader Jackson Tate, who says the game isn’t really a game, that what Miki and her new teammates do now determines their survival, and the survival of every other person on this planet. She laughs. He doesn’t. And then the game takes a deadly and terrifying turn.
The plot sounds a bit like Ender’s Game to me, but I loved that book, so I can’t complain. You can add Rush to your Goodreads list here. What are you waiting on?
