From Goodreads:

It’s the end of the world. Six students have taken cover in Cortege High but shelter is little comfort when the dead outside won’t stop pounding on the doors. One bite is all it takes to kill a person and bring them back as a monstrous version of their former self. To Sloane Price, that doesn’t sound so bad. Six months ago, her world collapsed and since then, she’s failed to find a reason to keep going. Now seems like the perfect time to give up. As Sloane eagerly waits for the barricades to fall, she’s forced to witness the apocalypse through the eyes of five people who actually want to live. But as the days crawl by, the motivations for survival change in startling ways and soon the group’s fate is determined less and less by what’s happening outside and more and more by the unpredictable and violent bids for life—and death—inside. When everything is gone, what do you hold on to?

Why Am I Waiting?
First off the cover, omg how awesome is it! The first time I saw the cover I thought it was a girl standing outside with the wind whipping her hair. Upon closer inspection I realize the girl was being killed (no doubt cause she's a zombie) and there was blood splatter in the upper left hand corner. That alone was like woah awesome! I also was really intrigued by the story, six friends trapped in a HS dealing with the dead outside and cabin fever inside. It is no secret I LOVE Zombies as well as post apocalyptic stories so of course when this book came in my cross hairs I knew I had to have it. To bad June is so very far away.....but of course that is why it is my Waiting On Wednesday post in the first place.

What Are You Waiting On this Week? Let me Know In The Comments Below! I love reading your responses.


  1. I wanted this book, but before I knew it, it was gone from Net Galley. Looks like an awesome book. Great trailer by the way as well.


  2. Hi! This book seems to be interesting and a bit depressing! I never saw the blood above before you mention it! The cover is beautiful!

    Here's mine: WOW

  3. I can't freaking wait for this one either! I had never seen the trailer before, and I guess I somehow missed it on NetGalley :( Anywho, great pick!

    My WoW

  4. OMG YES! I am so excited for this one :) It looks like it's going to be SO AWESOME :D

  5. I was really attracted to the cover, but I didn't really interpret it correctly. It sounds like an interesting story, but maybe not for me. I haven't read Zombies before, and I'm not sure if I'm ready to do it now. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

    1. Zombies aren't for everyone. I can understand that.

  6. Not my cup of tea, but it does sound intriguing.

    Speaking of cute WOW buttons...yours is adorable! Thanks for visiting my blog.

  7. I showcased this book a few weeks ago and I can't wait for it to release. It sounds fantastic and the cover is just brilliant! Love your blog, by the way; it is gorgeous. New follower. Happy reading!


  8. I cannot wait to read this one - sounds so good!!!!

  9. I haven't heard about this one yet. But, I can see why your waiting on it. The cover is good. I don't see how you can tell she is being killed. It does just look like the wind has her but then again I can't see it up close.

    I will have to check this one out. Still to date I have not read a zombie novel altho I LOVE The Walking Dead...Go figure..

    Thanks for stopping by my WOW.

  10. Ahhhh that one looks so good!!! Great pick :)

    Here's my WoW!

  11. I totally want Courtney Summer's books! I heard so many great things on her and her books! This one was on NetGalley but I just got rejected:( But great pick, btw!=D

    1. I didn't try for it on Netgalley. I'm weird lol some books I am totally fine reading E-copies of but others I will wait til I can have the physical in my hands before attempting.

  12. I didn't notice that about the cover until you pointed it. I like how they did that. Zombie things freak me out for some reason. This looks good.

  13. I've been hearing a lot about this one. Great pick. Thanks for stopping by!
