[Meme] Waiting On Wednesday: The Way We Fall

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Title: The Way We Fall
Author: Megan Crewe
Publisher: Disney-Hyperion
Publication Date: January 24, 2012

It starts with an itch you just can't shake. Then comes a fever and a tickle in your throat. A few days later, you'll be blabbing your secrets and chatting with strangers like they’re old friends. Three more, and the paranoid hallucinations kick in.

And then you're dead.

When a deadly virus begins to sweep through sixteen-year-old Kaelyn’s community, the government quarantines her island—no one can leave, and no one can come back.

Those still healthy must fight for dwindling supplies, or lose all chance of survival. As everything familiar comes crashing down, Kaelyn joins forces with a former rival and discovers a new love in the midst of heartbreak. When the virus starts to rob her of friends and family, she clings to the belief that there must be a way to save the people she holds dearest. 

Because how will she go on if there isn't?

Finally, a book without a black and red cover! But it seems I also have this thing for these wonderfully creative (and scary) end of the world by virus type books (I'm currently reading Wither). Tell me this synopsis doesn't sound amazing, and yet completely freaky? I'll be picking this one up on release day for sure! (And then I'll probably start freaking out every time I feel that odd little tickle in my throat...)

What book are you waiting for right now?


  1. Great choice! I'll have to add it to the ever growing list of books I can't wait to check out - thank you for sharing! :)

  6. I absolutely cannot wait for this! (And I can't agree more - no black and red!!! YAY!) I love the idea of the virus, the living through it. (Reminds me of The Stand by Stephen King-- one of my favorite books ever.)
