Waiting on Wednesday #35 Pods by Michelle Pickett + Other stuff...

PODsOh, before we start, I’d like to say thank you to those who entered the Witchblood giveaway! The winner was Tamara! Email will be sent once I’ve sorted it all out with Emma.  Thank you to all that entered... And onwards...

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where we show off books that we want to read but have not been published yet. 

Title:  Pods
Author:  Michelle K Pickett
Release Date: 1 June 2013
Link to / Summary from Goodreads: Seventeen-year-old Eva is a chosen one. Chosen to live, while others meet a swift and painful death from an incurable virus so lethal, a person is dead within days of symptoms emerging. In the POD system, a series of underground habitats built by the government, she waits with the other chosen for the deadly virus to claim those above. Separated from family and friends, it’s in the PODs she meets David. And while true love might not conquer all, it’s a balm for the broken soul.  After a year, scientists believe the population has died, and without living hosts, so has the virus. That’s the theory, anyway. But when the PODs are opened, survivors find the surface holds a vicious secret. The virus mutated, infecting those left top-side and creating... monsters. 
Eva and David hide from the infected in the abandoned PODs. Together they try to build a life--a new beginning. But the infected follow and are relentless in their attacks. Leaving Eva and David to fight for survival, and pray for a cure.

Why I want it:  The whole idea to it is really cool.  And the monsters look interesting.... The only problem? The ridiculously long wait.

What are YOU waiting on this week?

Some other things....

I’m giving up book buying for Lent. Kind of. Apart from my week in France. I can buy any book in the French language that I want. I can also buy books for other people (think giveaway winners), provided I don’t get to read them myself. And to make up for the week in France, the week after Easter I won’t be buying anything either. I also won’t be making my library buy anything during this time either. Go me. Not that I’ll be short of stuff to read. *looks at kindle and pile on shelf*...

And... tomorrow is my blogoversary!  Two international giveaways running....check back!
