The 5th Wave



The 5th Wave hits the shelves tomorrow morning! 

I plan to post my review in the next few days, but wanted to let you know that it is, in a word,

FANTASTIC!

Better than the Twilight trilogy.

Better than the Hunger Games trilogy.

Better than The Passage trilogy.

Imagine a mash-up of Ender's Game, The Road and The Hunger Games.

Don't care for teenage angst and silly romantic head games? Not to worry.

Oh, and, my husband thought it was great, too!

Happy Reading!

  3. BTW, I noticed on your sidebar that you read Still Life this year. Is that the first time or is this a reread?

    1. It was a re-read. I've been meaning to read more from the series and decided to give the first book a listen. I enjoyed it, but still didn't fall in love...

    1. It is! Get thee to a bookstore and buy it! I sold several copies in the first week. I think it will be one of those that starts to sell with word-of-mouth.

  5. Starred reviews in Booklist and PW. And a rave from Prairie Horizons. Must be a winner.

  6. I'd never heard of this one until the other day and now I'm seeing it everywhere! Maybe I'll get the audio and since Rod liked it I'll pass it on to Scott too.
