Through a blog I enjoy, I recently learned about Waiting On Wednesday, a weekly post hosted by Breaking the Spine where bloggers can highlight upcoming books they’re excited to read.  I think that is such a neat idea and a great way to discover new books!  I decided to participate and my choice for this week is:


Light (Gone #6) by Michael Grant


It’s been over a year since all the adults disappeared. Gone.

In the time since every person over the age of fourteen disap-peared from the town of Perdido Beach, California, countless battles have been fought: battles against hunger and lies and plague, and epic battles of good against evil. And now, the gaiaphage has been reborn as Diana’s malicious mutant daughter, Gaia. Gaia is endlessly hungry for destruction. She yearns to conquer her Nemesis, Little Pete, and then bend the entire world to her warped will. As long-standing enemies become allies, secrets are revealed and unexpected sacrifices are made. Will their attempts to save themselves and one another matter in the end, or will the kids of Perdido Beach perish in this final power struggle?

Light, the sixth and final book in the New York Times bestselling Gone series by Michael Grant, creates a masterful, arresting conclusion to life in the FAYZ

Expected publication: April 2nd, 2013 by Katherine Tegen Books

Why I’m Waiting

The Gone series has been a bizarre, complicated, super fun ride so far and I’m really looking forward to seeing how he concludes it.   How will they survive in the regular world?  Can they even survive at all?  What will happen to the mutant animals and people?  So many questions!  Given everything that has happened to these kids and everything they’ve done, I have no idea how he’ll resolve it and I can’t wait to find out.
