The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey
Release Date: 7th May, 2013.
Here's the blurb:
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, and 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, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie’s only hope for rescuing her brother—or even saving herself. But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up
Also, supposedly, the ARC of the book says that it has a 750,00$ marketing campaign. Holy flapjacks, that's alot!
And because I'm just as excited as you are, here's a 54 preview of the book to keep you settled.
Reboot by Amy Tintera
Realese Date: 7th May, 2013.
Another book I am really excited about is Reboot. First off, here's the blurb:
Five years ago, Wren Connolly was shot three times in the chest. After 178 minutes she came back as a Reboot: stronger, faster, able to heal, and less emotional. The longer Reboots are dead, the less human they are when they return. Wren 178 is the deadliest Reboot in the Republic of Texas. Now seventeen years old, she serves as a soldier for HARC (Human Advancement and Repopulation Corporation).
Wren’s favorite part of the job is training new Reboots, but her latest newbie is the worst she’s ever seen. As a 22, Callum Reyes is practically human. His reflexes are too slow, he’s always asking questions, and his ever-present smile is freaking her out. Yet there’s something about him she can’t ignore. When Callum refuses to follow an order, Wren is given one last chance to get him in line—or she’ll have to eliminate him. Wren has never disobeyed before and knows if she does, she’ll be eliminated, too. But she has also never felt as alive as she does around Callum.
The perfect soldier is done taking orders.
The perfect soldier is done taking order. How awesome is that? I'll tell ya, it's so awesome, that I'm on tiptoes waiting for this book. Come on, Reboot!
Now if any of you has sharp eyes, you'll notice that both books have the same release date. And both books talk about some sci-fi shenanigin. Which can only mean one thing...
THE END IS NEAR! ON 7TH OF MAY, A ROBOT/ALIEN APOCALYPSE WILL FALL ON US! It's true. The apocalypse might have been scheduled for december 2012, but you know how it is. Those lazy ass aliens never make it here on time. So, my always rational mind has come to the conclusion that both publishing houses (Putnam Juvenille and HarperTeen) are the masterminds behind this up coming apocalyspe. Leave it to the literary folk to screw everything up, eh?
You might not believe it, but I'm telling you, same release is like totes suspicious, you guys.
You have been warned...
(That was so dramatic wasn't it?)
