What Are You Reading Wednesday #23: The 5th Wave

whatareyoureadingwedWhat Are You Reading Wednesdays #WAYRW is a weekly feature on It’s A Reading Thing. It’s fairly straight forward. Just answer a few simple questions about the book you are currently reading and the post it. If you use the image above, please make sure you link it back to It’s A Reading Thing.

How to participate:
Grab the book you are currently reading and answer three questions:

The 5th Wave

1. What’s the name of your current read?

The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey

2. Go to page 34 in your book or 34% in your eBook and share a couple of sentences.

“It’s not my fault,” I told Bear. “I don’t make the weather. You got a beef, take it up with God.”

That’s what I’ve been doing a lot lately: taking it up with God.

Like: God, WTF?

Spared from the Eye so I could kill the Crucifix Soldier. Saved from the Silencer so my leg could get infected, making every step a journey over hell’s highway. Kept me going until the blizzard came in for two solid days, trapping me in this waist-high drift so I could die of hypothermia under a gloriously blue sky.

Thanks, God.

Spared, saved, kept, the bear says. Thanks, God.

3. Would you like to live in the world that exists within your book? Why or why not?

In a world where an alien force is trying to wipe out humanity? No way. Then again, I must say, I’m really skeptical that things are what they seem. For one, the 3rd Wave could have been a result of the 2nd Wave. After a tsunami, it’s not uncommon for disease to run rampant. Especially if the world has lost all of their technical advances. I don’t know… something about this book isn’t setting right with me. I don’t know if conceptually something is wrong or if I’m picking up on something that will be revealed later on.

About Kristine

As an aspiring author, avid bookworm, fitness fanatic and dedicated mother, there just aren't enough hours in the day. I write or post about things I'm passionate about and spend my time trying to make the most of every day. Life may be a tough journey, but I have my ruby red slippers and am content on skipping along this yellow brick road until the end of the line.

  3. This sounds so good. I can’t wait to read it too. I definitely would not want to live in it though.
