What 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:
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.
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.
