The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey... is coming today.

Today is the release date of Putnam's The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey. I've been fortunate enough to receive an early review copy, being a Penguin employee, and am almost finished with the post-apocalyptic novel...so there will be no spoilers from me. Plus in full disclosure I wanted to mention I work for the same company that publishes this book although I was in no way asked to write this post, I simply really like the book and felt it worth mentioning on my own, personal blog.

I will say, the novel is a thrilling and imaginative read about an attack that comes to Earth in a series of earth-shattering debilitating waves. And as the reader learns about each wave, we follow Cassie, and a few other survivors as they attempt to navigate the dangerous landscape and stay alive.

I've also managed to secure a hardcover edition, hot off the presses, to give away to one Bookrastination reader, if you're the first to answer this question, inspired by one of the best post-apocalyptic novels I've ever read: What is the item in a felt-lined box that the father finds when he swims out to the abandoned ship in The Road

I'll contact you via comments section if you're the winner and I'll be happy to send you the hardcover copy once we exchange mailing details.

Good luck and get out there and support this new and exciting book!

I keep hearing about this one as "the new Hunger Games," though from the reviews I've read to accompany it, it actually sounds better than the Hunger Games - hopefully?

Glad to see you back on the blog!
