Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we are all eagerly anticipating.
This week I’m anxiously waiting on Frost by M.P. Kozlowsky. Just the cover gives me chills!! This book is set in the future where robots (and from the blurb what sounds like) cannibals roam the earth. Frost’s only companion is her dead father’s consciousness which lives inside a failing robot. I’m giddy just thinking about this book. I love dystopians and I’m a new fan to fairy tale retellings, combine the two and I’m sold 😀Frost by M.P. Kozlowsky

Length: 352 pages
Cinder meets The Walking Dead in a chilling futuristic fairy tale that will reboot everything you thought about family, love, and what it means to be human.
Sixteen-year-old Frost understands why she's spent her entire life in an abandoned apartment building. The ruined streets below are hunting grounds for rogue robots and Eaters.
She understands why she's never met a human besides her father. She even understands why he forbids her to look for medicine for her dying pet. But the thing is, it's not her real father giving the orders . . .
It's his memories.
Before he died, Frost's father uploaded his consciousness into their robot servant. But the technology malfunctioned, and now her father fades in and out. So when Frost learns that there might be medicine on the other side of the ravaged city, she embarks on a dangerous journey to save the only living creature she loves.
With only a robot as a companion, Frost must face terrors of all sorts, from outrunning the vicious Eaters . . . to talking to the first boy she's ever set eyes on. But can a girl who's only seen the world through books and dusty windows survive on her own?
What are you not-so-patiently waiting on this Wednesday?
