Waiting on Wednesday (106)

Waiting on Wednesday is, of course, brought to us by the lovely Jill at Breaking the Spine.


This Is Not A Test by Courtney Summers - To released June 19th, 2012

It’s the end of the world. Six students have taken cover in Cortege High but shelter is little comfort when the dead outside won’t stop pounding on the doors. One bite is all it takes to kill a person and bring them back as a monstrous version of their former self. To Sloane Price, that doesn’t sound so bad. Six months ago, her world collapsed and since then, she’s failed to find a reason to keep going. Now seems like the perfect time to give up.

As Sloane eagerly waits for the barricades to fall, she’s forced to witness the apocalypse through the eyes of five people who actually want to live. But as the days crawl by, everyone’s motivations to survive begin to change in startling ways and soon the group’s fate is determined less and less by what’s happening outside and more and more by the unpredictable and violent bids for life–and death–inside.

When everything is gone, what do you hold on to?

(Summary from goodreads.)

Why I want this: Okay, I know most of you have probably heard of this one, but man, doesn't it sound amazing? This is my kind of zombie book!!

Next up, we have:


Touched by Cyn Balog - To be released by August 14th, 2012

Nick Cross always listens to the voice in his head. Because if he doesn't? Things can go really, really wrong. Like the day he decided to go off script and saved a girl from being run over... and let another one drown. Trying to change the future doesn't work.

But this summer at the Jersey Shore, something's about to happen that Nick never could have predicted. He meets a girl named Taryn and finds out about the Book of Touch. Now the path that he thought he was on begins to shift... and there's no way to stop things from happening. Or is there?

In a life where there are no surprises, nothing has prepared Nick for what he's about to discover--or the choice he will be forced to make...

(Summary from goodreads.)

Why I want this: I always find the idea of seeing the future and not being able to change it fascinating. Can't wait to read this one and see Cyn's take on it!

What are you guys waiting on this week?

Peace and cookies,
Laina
