Goodreads description--The riveting follow-up to the New York Times bestselling The 5th Wave, hailed by Justin Cronin as “wildly entertaining.”

How do you rid the Earth of seven billion humans? Rid the humans of their humanity.

Surviving the first four waves was nearly impossible. Now Cassie Sullivan finds herself in a new world, a world in which the fundamental trust that binds us together is gone. As the 5th Wave rolls across the landscape, Cassie, Ben, and Ringer are forced to confront the Others’ ultimate goal: the extermination of the human race.

Cassie and her friends haven’t seen the depths to which the Others will sink, nor have the Others seen the heights to which humanity will rise, in the ultimate battle between life and death, hope and despair, love and hate.

What are you waiting on this week? Let me know!


  1. I still have The 5th Wave sat on my TBR pile, I really can't wait to read it! At least I have until September to catch up for book Two! Great pick :)

  2. I didn't like The 5th Wave as much as everyone else did (I didn't dislike it, I just didn't rave about it). I'm not sure I'll ever actually get to this one. But I'm glad I now know it's coming out!

    Nice pick! I love that cover and have heard great things about The Fifth Wave. Thanks for sharing!

  11. I haven't read the first one yet, but I really want to. Hope you enjoy it :)

  12. I've not read the 5th Wave yet, so many hyped around that book. And I just feel kind of ... scared, I guess since my friends are waiting to see if I'll love that book like they did (just too much pressure you know).
    Thanks for sharing and for stopping by.

  13. I really enjoyed The 5th 5 Stars enjoyed it! :) Thanks for stopping by!

  14. Oh you really should! I gave it 5 Stars! Thanks for stopping by!

  15. Yeah, I can understand. Just read it expecting to hate it so that everyone else's expectations don't mess up your own. :) Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

  16. yes! yes, I will be reading this. I loved the first book even if I'm not overly thrilled about the cast picking for the film.

  17. Oh yay! I love when I find another fan! And how did I not know they were making this into a movie? Do you just not like the actress playing Cassie? I didn't see anyone else cast (looking on imbd) yet. Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

  18. The Wrap and MTV released news stories last week that Chloe Grace Moretz will star in the film adaptation of The 5th Wave...

    I just feel like there's tunnel vision when it comes to casting young actresses even if I love them it becomes oversaturated.

  19. I've never heard of this actress before. But I can see where you're coming from. Maybe it'll turn out okay. Thanks for commenting--sorry I'm so late responding!
