WoW Pick of the Week!



Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It is a chance to share those new releases were are super anxious to get our hands on and read.

This weeks choice is a series (and author) that took me by surprise. I am not a gamer, like at all, nor do I normally go the sci fi-ish route when it comes to reads and yet, this author totally pulled it off on both accounts.

This is the last book in the trilogy and I couldn't be more excited for it!



Release Date: June 9, 2015 (Katherine Tegen Books)

Book Description:
A thrilling action/suspense novel for fans of The Fifth Wave about contemporary teens pulled in and out of an alternate reality where battling aliens is more than a game—it's life and death.

Miki’s life is falling apart around her. Her dad and best friend are lying in the hospital. The Game is glitching, making missions more frequent and more deadly. And someone close to her is waiting for the right moment to betray her. 

Miki feels like she’s hanging on by a thread and the only thing keeping her tethered is Jackson’s hand in hers. Yet telling him how much she needs him, how much she loves him, feels like the biggest challenge of all. And if Miki really wants the missions to end for everyone, she’ll have to let go and be ready to fight when the walls between the Game and reality come crashing down. Because if there’s one thing she’s learned, it’s that she’s got a whole lot left to lose.


Crash is the pulse-pounding conclusion to the Game trilogy fans won’t want to miss.

  9. I am a fan of the Fifth Wave, and the synopsis sounds interesting. I will have to check this series out. I'm not a gamer either, but I have read several books with video game elements and have enjoyed them.

  12. Why can't I recall the first two books? The cover looks familiar, and readign the synopsis, I like the sound of aliens and life or death video games.

    1. Push was the second one and then Rush was the first one. The covers are all similar. ;)

  13. Oooh, nice cover! I know about this series, but never tried it. Not really into YA sci-fi, you know? Regardless, hope this one's a good conclusion for you :)
