Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This meme highlights some of the books whose releases bloggers are most anticipating this year.
The book whose release I am most excited for this week is...
After the End (After the End #1)
By: Amy Plum
Expected publication: May 6th 2014
Author loyalty --> my top reason for wanting to read this book. Amy Plum is the author of the bestselling Revenant series, one of my all time favorite YA series ever at the moment. So, it's only natural to assume that I would want to read anything and everything Plum pens out.
Now, assuming I have never read anything written by Amy Plum, the opening of the blurb would be incentive enough:
"She’s searching for answers to her past. They’re hunting her to save their future."Those two sentences alone have captured my attention and my interest.
Yes, I know what some of you might be thinking: it sounds like just another typical YA Dystopian novel. While I would love to argue that it does not, I cannot lie. It does sound like another dystopian, however, there is no doubt in my mind that Ms. Plum will be able to deliver something to her readers that is unique, different, and intriguing.
So while I am trying (and mostly failing) to move away from YA and into more adult novels, I will still pick up this book and suggest that if you have not yet checked out Amy Plum's Revenant series, DO IT NOW!
