Waiting on Wednesday (71)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that allows bloggers to share which books we are most anticipating.
This week I am waiting on After the End by Amy Plum (5/6/14): 
Description (from Goodreads):
World War III has left the world ravaged by nuclear radiation. A lucky few escaped to the Alaskan wilderness. They've survived for the last thirty years by living off the land, being one with nature, and hiding from whoever else might still be out there.

At least, this is what Juneau has been told her entire life.

When Juneau returns from a hunting trip to discover that everyone in her clan has vanished, she sets off to find them. Leaving the boundaries of their land for the very first time, she learns something horrifying: There never was a war. Cities were never destroyed. The world is intact. Everything was a lie.

Now Juneau is adrift in a modern-day world she never knew existed. But while she's trying to find a way to rescue her friends and family, someone else is looking for her. Someone who knows the extraordinary truth about the secrets of her past.
Why I’m Waiting:
So the cover is a bit of a snooze, but this story sounds so good! I love these “my whole life was a lie” stories. And this lie just seems so major and crazy. I can’t wait to see what this main character’s story is. The mystery already has me excited (before even starting it).

What are you waiting on this week?

  2. This story sounds amazing. I'm already intrigued just going off the summary alone. Thanks for sharing!

  3. The cover is kinda boring (sad) but the story does sound quite interesting. I'll have to check it out. WoW: Shadowplay by Laura Lam.
