Waiting on Wednesday #46

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine. 

This week I'm waiting on This is Not a Test by Courtney Summers. 

I loved Courtney's Some Girls Are and Fall For Anything. I have, but have not read Cracked Up to Be. They are all contemporary fiction, so this one is sure to be a treat, because it's just outside of Courtney's writing shell. 

It’s the end of the world. Six students have taken cover in Cortege High but shelter is little comfort when the dead outside won’t stop pounding on the doors. One bite is all it takes to kill a person and bring them back as a monstrous version of their former self. To Sloane Price, that doesn’t sound so bad. Six months ago, her world collapsed and since then, she’s failed to find a reason to keep going. Now seems like the perfect time to give up.

As Sloane eagerly waits for the barricades to fall, she’s forced to witness the apocalypse through the eyes of five people who actually want to live. But as the days crawl by, everyone’s motivations to survive begin to change in startling ways and soon the group’s fate is determined less and less by what’s happening outside and more and more by the unpredictable and violent bids for life–and death–inside.

When everything is gone, what do you hold on to?

Zombies anyone? I love that cover too it perfectly normal when you first look at it, but the more you look the creepier it gets; with the hair in the girl's face flying all over, the little blood splatter in the upper-left hand corner. I cannot wait until June 19th to get my hands on this! So excited!


  1. I'm so curious about how this one will be in comparison to Summers' other books. Great pick! :)
