HyperventilatingonWednesday
Welcome to my WOW, or HOW as I like to call it where I feature an upcoming release that I'm hyperventilating for! It's totally fun to geek out about upcoming releases! This event is hosted by the lovely Jill @ Breaking The Spine. Today's awesome-sauce pick is....


Not A Drop To Drink
by Miny McGinnis
Releasing: 9-10-13 by Katherine Tegan

Regret was for people with nothing to defend, people who had no water. Lynn knows every threat to her pond: drought, a snowless winter, coyotes, and, most importantly, people looking for a drink. She makes sure anyone who comes near the pond leaves thirsty, or doesn't leave at all. Confident in her own abilities, Lynn has no use for the world beyond the nearby fields and forest. Having a life means dedicating it to survival, and the constant work of gathering wood and water. Having a pond requires the fortitude to protect it, something Mother taught her well during their quiet hours on the rooftop, rifles in hand. But wisps of smoke on the horizon mean one thing: strangers. The mysterious footprints by the pond, nighttime threats, and gunshots make it all too clear Lynn has exactly what they want, and they won’t stop until they get it….
Why I'm Hyperventilating:
I've been into this kind of book for a long time. I love apocalyptic tales that are done right. They're thrilling and exciting and very fun to read. And this one looks like no exception. I love the premise of the novel, I love the title and how intrigued it leaves you, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the cover. Seriously. Have of my excitement to read this book comes from the cover. Oh WOW. I'm not kidding.The covers are stunning, the way they fade into each other and give the appearance of two feels to the book. Plus the pond on the front is kinda awesome! I'm very much anticipating this new take on futuristic lands. And I'm pretty sure I'll be drinking lots of water....

What are YOU waiting on this week?

  5. I'm so excited for this one as well!! I'm such a sucker for dystopian/post-apocalyptic books, and this one sounds especially fantastic. The concept is just so unique! And the MC sounds pretty kick-butt as well. Not to mention that cover which I'm in LOVE with at the moment. <3

    Fantastic pick!
