After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one. Now, it's the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth's last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie's only hope for rescuing her brother--or even saving herself. But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up.
This is the fourth book in the "Life As We Knew It" series. It remains one of my all time favorite apocalyptic stories. Pfeffer has crafted these characters so expertly that I often find myself missing them and rereading the series. From the beginning, this story has rang so terribly real that I often open my curtains to check on the moon. You know, just in case.
In the Mirage, you can. Reachable only by leaving the physical body and entering the out-of-body state, the Mirage allows all within it to trade memories like souvenirs and create structures that defy physics. And now, after centuries, even the memory of the devastating Vakragha attack on their world has all but been forgotten, and most have lost touch with the physical world altogether.

Now that Halloween is over it's time to start thinking of Christmas gifts! I don't know about you but there is always a pretty big stack of beautifully wrapped (at least the one's my husband wraps) books under our tree. Every year I make a wish list for my husband and he makes one for me.We don't always stick strictly to the lists but we don't stray far. I thought this year I would share our lists with you!
How goes it my book besties? Here's a sneak peak into what I'll be reading this week! I've received some e-mails from a few antsy authors wanting to know what's next in my queue so I'm going to bring back the weekly TBR post. Just a reminder, I review books for free and am also the mother of two very small children.... so it may take a while to get a review out. However, as you may already know...when I do review a book I take care to explain any issues I have with the book as well as heap on praise when a book blows me off my feet!
First lines: I'd always thought I'd probably die suddenly, unexpectedly, a car wreck on a foggy morning or a brain aneurysm during a workout. I could never imagine a slow ebb into the other side, a gradual slide into death brought about by a wasting illness or old age. I figured it would be fast.
