Title: The 5th Wave

Author: Rick Yancey
Publisher: Penguin Teen Australia
Genre: YA, science fiction, post apocalyptic
Series: The 5th Wave #1
Release Date: May 7, 2013
Pages: 388 (paperback)

The Passage meets The Hunger Games in a gripping new series from Carnegie-shortlisted 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. 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, until Cassie meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan may be her only hope for rescuing her brother and even saving herself. Now she must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up. Cassie Sullivan gets up.

    I love your beautiful blog and it’s deep, rich purple.
    I love Spring. It’s when the cold and ice of winter melts away and flowers begin to bloom. The grass becomes green again. The birds chirp in the trees. And the weather warms, which is probably the very best part! So far, I have experienced many April showers. I can’t wait for their inevitable consequence: flowers!
    Thanks for the giveaway and Happy Spring!
