Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine in which we have the opportunity to let others know about books that we are eagerly waiting for.
Title: The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness
Published by: Walker Books
Release date: August 27th, 2015
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…
Why I want to read it: Even though I have quite a few of Ness’ books in my TBR list, I’ve yet to read any of them (don’t tell Asti from Oh, The Books!) I fully plan for this book to be the first one. I adore both the cover and the premise.
