Waiting On Wednesday (Nov. 9th)


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Some weeks when I get ready to do one of these posts I sigh. I know I'm showing you a book that you've likely seen a hundred times before. I know I am being boring. Because I know my favorite part of Waiting on Wednesday is when I discover a book that is so fabulous that I'm bouncing up and down in my chair from excitement even if I don't have my iPod on.

Well, this week is not going to be boring. This week I have a book to show you that I just discovered on someone's blog ... oh ... five minutes ago? And here's the kicker... I'm going to tell you how you can have a chance to win it! (What kind of friend would I be if I kept that to myself?)

The Way We Fall
by Megan Crewe
It starts with an itch you just can’t shake. Then comes a fever and a tickle in your throat. A few days later, you’ll be blabbing your secrets and chatting with strangers like they’re old friends. Three more, and the paranoid hallucinations kick in.

And then you’re dead.

When a deadly virus begins to sweep through sixteen-year-old Kaelyn’s community, the government quarantines her island—no one can leave, and no one can come back.

Those still healthy must fight for dwindling supplies, or lose all chance of survival. As everything familiar comes crashing down, Kaelyn joins forces with a former rival and discovers a new love in the midst of heartbreak. When the virus starts to rob her of friends and family, she clings to the belief that there must be a way to save the people she holds dearest.

Because how will she go on if there isn’t?

Megan Crewe crafts a powerful and gripping exploration of self-preservation, first love, and hope. Poignant and dizzying, this heart-wrenching story of one girl’s bravery and unbeatable spirit will leave readers fervently awaiting the next book in this standout new series.

Why Do I Want It?: 

Okay, let's see... First up: there is nothing more terrifying then a plague / virus. Nothing. It can't be reasoned with, pleaded with or bribed. It doesn't pick favorites, it doesn't know fear. It doesn't stop. 

Then there is the fact that this sounds like it is going to have a survival vibe to it. How is our heroine going to get through this mess? How will she cope with losing loved ones? How will she keep her sanity in tact, her hopes alive, when she is trapped in what is essentially a living nightmare? How will she keep going knowing that she could be next

Last up, there is this whole teaming up with a rival and discovering love. Whoever wrote this summary just said a whole lotta magic words right there. Let's break this down again, shall we? Rivals working together = people having to move past previous issues = conflict = interesting. And then we also get to see our heroine falling in love in the midst of total, absolute and utter disaster. Sign. Me. Up. 

Yeah, I am very eager to read this. Can you tell?

But wait! I promised I'd tell you how to get a shot at winning it, didn't I? Right now, over on Bibliosaurus Text, there is an ARC of The Way We Fall as the prize for their stop on the November Giveaway Hop. It is international, too. 

I don't want to be stuck waiting to read this. And I bet you don't want to wait, either. So, why are you still here, hm? Shoo! Go enter! 

And with that there are only two words left toe say to you: Good Luck!  
Oh, and "What are you waiting on this Wednesday?" :)

  9. I am waiting on this one as well. It's interesting, I'd think I have the deadly virus, only I'm not dead, which is guess is the most important part in a deadly virus. It wouldn't matter then, would it. Can you imagine what it's like. people walking up to random people telling them they cheated on their husbands or something. Wierd, but I guess thats an easy way to find out the truth. They need something like this in courtrooms (minus the whole death thing) That would be cool Anywho I like this book. Chech out mine here
