Waiting On Wednesday (55) The 100 by Kass Morgan

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly blog post hosted by Breaking The Spine
For this weeks Waiting On Wednesday I chose The 100 by Kass Morgan.


In the future, humans live in city-like spaceships orbiting far above Earth's toxic atmosphere. No one knows when, or even if, the long-abandoned planet will be habitable again. But faced with dwindling resources and a growing populace, government leaders know they must reclaim their homeland... before it's too late.

Now, one hundred juvenile delinquents are being sent on a high-stakes mission to recolonize Earth. After a brutal crash landing, the teens arrive on a savagely beautiful planet they've only seen from space. Confronting the dangers of this rugged new world, they struggle to form a tentative community. But they're haunted by their past and uncertain about the future. To survive, they must learn to trust - and even love - again.



Expected Publication: September 3, 2013

Why Am I Waiting?  
It's been a minute since I've seen a Science Fiction book that really caught my eye. The 100 just sounds incredibly different than most books I've seen in this particular genre lately. Plus I'm a sucker for scenarios where the sole hope of civilazation rests on the shoulders of a few.

That about wraps up my Waiting on Wednesday for this week. Feel free to leave me the link to your Wednesday memes  in the comments below so I can check them out as well! I love reading them all.

Out of curiosity, Will you be picking this book up? What do you think of the cover?
For fun, If you could go into space and pick a new planet to live on, Which would it be & Why?

  1. I haven't heard of this book before- thanks for placing it on my radar! It's been a while since a YA sci fi caught my attention as well and I really like the plot of this book.

  2. Super excited for this one! It is supposed to be a TV show! Love sci-fi/dystopian and the idea of them living in space since Earth is so messed up then having to re-inhabit it.

    1. Lol I know it's a bit far fetched that the hope of Earth rests in the hands of teenagers but maybe the book has a good reason why no adults go as well.
