Waiting On Wednesday [#37]

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.

This Is Not A Test
Author: Courtney Summers
Expected Publication: June 19, 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, the motivations for survival 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?

I've been looking forward to this book for a while! The story of someone not wanting to live, who actually wouldn't mind to become a Zombie. I definitely want to read it! :)

What are you waiting on?

  1. I have heard some good things about this book. I am not sure what to make of though. It is about Zombies which I never got into. But it seems different so maybe :)

  2. Looking at that cover, I would have never thought it was a zombie book. The synopsis sounds pretty awesome though ! :)

  3. Zombie Apocalypse *dun dun dun dunnn!!!*

    I'm not really into the Zombie scene, granted I've never really read a book about them, but a lot of people seem to be preferring zombies these days. I hope you enjoy the book when you get your hands on it. :)

    Here's my TT :)
