Falling Behind on Friday is an original weekly feature created at Moirae the Fates. The idea is that each week you pick a book that you are ashamed to admit has been on your TBR pile for a longtime and showcase it to your audience. You can find out more about this feature here.
This week I am falling behind on:
THE 5TH WAVE BY RICK YANCEY
After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one.
Now, it’s the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth’s last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker.
Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie’s only hope for rescuing her brother—or even saving herself. But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up.
Why am I falling behind?
I blame the reason I'm falling behind on this book purely on the reactions that the 2nd book in this series received. When I read a book in a series in full knowledge that the second book is out, I like to be excited because usually the books just keep getting better and better. In this case I have heard so many negative reviews in regards to The Infinite Sea that it's making me question whether I want to start the trilogy in the first place. It's meant to be quite good, I mean it has a movie coming out soon for goodness sake. Should I take a chance and power through it?
What books are you guys falling behind on?
