The 5th Wave

By: Rick Yancey

Published: May 7th 2013 by Putnam Juvenile

480 pages

Genre: YA, Sci-Fi, Post Apocalyptic

Source: Borrowed from my SNL, Holly @ Words Fueled by Love

( Goodreads | Amazon | The Book Depository | Booksamillion.com )

Goodreads description--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.

Rose Under Fire

By: Elizabeth Wein

Expected Publication: September 10th 2013 by Disney-Hyperion

368 pages

Genre: YA, Historical Fiction

Source: Publisher via NetGalley (Thank you!!)

( Goodreads | Amazon | The Book Depository | Booksamillion.com )

Goodreads description--While flying an Allied fighter plane from Paris to England, American ATA pilot and amateur poet, Rose Justice, is captured by the Nazis and sent to Ravensbrück, the notorious women's concentration camp. Trapped in horrific circumstances, Rose finds hope in the impossible through the loyalty, bravery and friendship of her fellow prisoners. But will that be enough to endure the fate that’s in store for her?

Elizabeth Wein, author of the critically-acclaimed and best-selling Code Name Verity, delivers another stunning WWII thriller. The unforgettable story of Rose Justice is forged from heart-wrenching courage, resolve, and the slim, bright chance of survival.

That's it for my shelves and recaps of my past and upcoming week. What did you add to your shelves this week? Any bookish news you want to talk about? Let me know!

  5. Rose Under Fire looks good; I've been debating requesting it. I wish I had time to participate in Armchair BEA, but it's a busy week with work, so not this year. Have a great week and enjoy Armchair BEA!

  6. I am looking forward to your review of Dare You To! I haven't received my copy yet, I hope it arrives soon. I really loved Pushing the Limits.

    I haven't heard about Armchair Bea before, what does it entail? I am really sad I live in Europa and can't attend those awesome book conventions in the US.

    Here's a link to Armchair BEA - http://www.armchairbea.com/ - The short version is that BEA is Book Expo America, a really super cool book conference that I'd LOVE to go to. Armchair BEA is for all of us bloggers/librarians/etc who can't make it to BEA in New York. Check out that link for more information!

  19. Ooh, I heard about Elizabeth Wein's new book, but I've not read Code Name Verity yet, so I figured I'd wait to read this one till it came out, though it sounds really interesting! She must like World War II.


    Thanks for visiting me today! Happy reading! :)
