Summary via Barnes and Noble:

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.

Why I want it: I have not yet read the 5th Wave but I really really want to! It just sounds so interesting and suspenseful. Maybe I will wait until this book comes out and then I will just marathon the series. Hopefully both books will live up to the praise that they are getting and will be a winning dystopian series and earn a place of honor on my bookshelf.


  1. What a great pick - I still have to read the first book. :P

    1. Me too! I want to wait and then I can just marathon them!

  2. I cannot wait for this book! My husband and I are both counting down the days! You will love the fist one. It's dark, unique, and there are plenty of jaw dropping moments. Great pick! New follower =)

    1. Thanks! I am sure that I am going to love these books. They seem like my kind of books.

  3. Looove The 5th Wave!! People seem to be split on it though - seems likes people either really loved it (like me) or it just wasn't their thing. But you should definitely try it for yourself to find out! Rick Yancey is a super talented writer.

    1. I really want to read the 5th Wave. It just looks so good!!!!!
