Waiting on Wednesday (34)


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating. This is one of my favorite memes because not only is my TBR pile so much bigger at the end of the night but also the covers are always amazing!

Title: This is Not a Test
Author: Courtney Summers
Hitting the Shelves: June 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 bit 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, everyone's motivations to survive begin to 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.


What are you waiting for?

Squee! I am waiting for this too and its getting harder to wait every time I look at the cover and I'm not a zombie fan, at all. But its survivor-horror and that I do love. And its Courtney Summers so come on!

Sounds incredibly intriguing! It might actually go in my TBR. Shoot, I should not participate in Waiting On Wednesdays; it makes my TBR shelf grow even larger. :P

Yes! This one sounds like it would keep me up at night...and might require a nightlight when I'm done reading it. Great pick.
