Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and is a fun way for book bloggers to share the books they are excited about. This week I’m waiting on:
In the After by Demitria Lunetta. Release date: June 25 2013 (Harper Teen). I love this slightly creepy and disturbing cover. I wanted to focus on a book that deals with The End of the World, since it’s almost upon us (!) I love that this horrific-sounding story deals with the relationship between a teen girl and a toddler. Very unusual! Here’s the description from Goodreads:
They hear the most silent of footsteps.
They are faster than anything you’ve ever seen.
And They won’t stop chasing you…until you are dead.
Amy is watching TV when it happens, when the world is attacked by Them. These vile creatures are rapidly devouring mankind. Most of the population is overtaken, but Amy manages to escape—and even rescue “Baby,” a toddler left behind in the chaos. Marooned in Amy’s house, the girls do everything they can to survive—and avoid Them at all costs.
After years of hiding, they are miraculously rescued and taken to New Hope, a colony of survivors living in a former government research compound. While at first the colony seems like a dream with plenty of food, safety, and shelter, New Hope slowly reveals that it is far from ideal. And Amy soon realizes that unless things change, she’ll lose Baby—and much more.
Rebellious, courageous, and tender, this unforgettable duo will have you on the edge of your seat as you tear through the pulse-pounding narrow escapes and horrifying twists of fate in this thrilling debut from author Demitria Lunetta.
Doesn’t that sound scary?? Seriously, I can’t wait. What are you waiting on? I’d love to know!
