Waiting on Wednesday # 2: The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness

Wednesday, 18 March 2015

Waiting on Wednesday is an original weekly feature created at Breaking the Spine. The idea is that each week you make a post that spotlights upcoming releases that you're eagerly anticipating. You can find out more about this feature here.

This week I am deciding to spotlight:


Publication date: 27th August 2015 (UK)

What if you weren’t the Chosen One?

What if you’re not the one who’s so often the hero in YA fiction; who’s supposed to fight the zombies, or the soul-eating ghosts, or whatever this new thing is, with the blue lights and the death? What if you were like Mikey? Who just wants to graduate and go to prom and maybe finally work up the courage to ask Henna out before someone goes and blows up the high school. Again. Because sometimes there are problems bigger than this week’s end of the world and sometimes you just have to find the extraordinary in your ordinary life. Even if your best friend might just be the God of mountain lions...

Can we just sit and admire this cover for a moment please because frankly I think it's absolutely stunning and the premise just sounds fantastic! We're so used to reading about the 'chosen one' in YA books these days, so why can't we have an ordinary character for a chance? I can't wait to try and get an early proof of this book because it is probably one of my top five anticipated reads of the year! You can go and check out Patrick Ness over on Twitter by clicking here. Go and let him know if you're excited for his new book!

So what is your Waiting on Wednesday pick this week? 

Let me know in the comments below, or over on any of my social media platforms. I'd love to read what your picks are!
