Waiting on Wednesday #4 (February 25th)

spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating , hosted by Breaking the Spine.

Title: The Rest of Us Just Live Here
Author: Patrick Ness
Publication Date: August 27th 2015
Pages: 352
Genre: Young Adult Fiction
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...


Blurb: OMG! I love Mikey already, he sounds like he would be an amazing anti-hero. And I also love that it is kind of apocalyptic(?) and the hint at the fantasy at the end ahhhh!

Cover: HANDS DOWN BEST COVER I'VE SEEN THUS FAR. This would be an amazing poster! Love love love the typography, composition, colours and the graphic.

Do share your WoW links below, I love looking at what books everyone else is excited for! :)
