Mom - Waiting on Wed

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event originally created and hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we are all eagerly anticipating. Jill has been MIA since August of 2016. Despite this, the meme lives on….Hope you come back Jill! Until then I will be joining Tressa at Wishful Endings and her meme Can’t-Wait Wednesday.

Happy Wednesday y’all! This week I’m anxiously waiting on Pitch Dark by Courtney Alameda. I love sci-fi, that’s no secret and this particular book has a lot of promise. Space raiders, human race at the brink of extinction, and aliens….yes please 😀 And that cover!!! It’s haunting and gorgeous all at the same time. 2018 is shaping out to have a lot of exciting reads!

From Courtney Alameda, the author of Shutter, this thrilling, sci-fi horror and space adventure will be sure to stay with readers long after the last pages.

Lost to time, Tuck Morgan and his crew have slept in stasis aboard the USS John Muir for centuries. Their ship harbors a chunk of Earth, which unbeknownst to them, is the last hope for the failing human race.

Laura Cruz is a shipraider searching the galaxy for the history that was scattered to the stars. Once her family locates the John Muir and its precious cargo, they are certain human civilization is saved.

When Tuck's and Laura’s worlds collide―literally―the two teens must outwit their enemies, evade brutal monsters that kill with sound, and work together to save the John Muir . . . and the whole human race.

  1. I love the sound of this one, but am a bit of a wuss as I suffer badly from nightmares so need to be careful about what I read – I’ll look out for your review, because if it isn’t TOO scary I might give it a go!
