Waiting On Wednesday (33)

| Wednesday, November 7, 2012 | |


Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly blog post hosted by Breaking The Spine. For this week's Waiting On Wednesday I chose *drumroll* The Farm by Emily Mckay

Author: Emily McKay
Publisher: Berkley Trade
Goodreads Page:The Farm by Emily McKay

Expected Publication:December 4, 2012
Life was different in the Before: before vampires began devouring humans in a swarm across America; before the surviving young people were rounded up and quarantined. These days, we know what those quarantines are—holding pens where human blood is turned into more food for the undead monsters, known as Ticks. Surrounded by electrical fences, most kids try to survive the Farms by turning on each other…

And when trust is a thing of the past, escape is nearly impossible.

Lily and her twin sister Mel have a plan. Though Mel can barely communicate, her autism helps her notice things no one else notices—like the portion of electrical fence that gets turned off every night. Getting across won’t be easy, but as Lily gathers what they need to escape, a familiar face appears out of nowhere, offering to help…

Carter was a schoolmate of Lily’s in the Before. Managing to evade capture until now, he has valuable knowledge of the outside world. But like everyone on the Farm, Carter has his own agenda, and he knows that behind the Ticks is an even more dangerous threat to the human race...

Dude, The Farm looks awesome. I discovered it on a WoW a few weeks ago and immediately added it to my TBR. For some reason, I was thinking it was zombies, but now that I've read the summary again, I definitely agree that it's got a similar premise to The Immortal Rules and I'm all aboard for some vamps. :P Great pick!

This sounds so scary! You know any post-apocalypse story with the word "farm" in it means bad things ahead:) Great choice.

You can visit my WOW here.

The Farm sounds really interesting. It makes total sense to quarantine them into holding pens/farms for their blood. Great concept!

Thanks for stopping by Book Sojourner!

This sounds like a great vamp book! A little similar to others but also with some unique parts. Always up for some dystopian vamps! Thanks for stopping by!
