Waiting on Wednesday (26)

Waiting on Wednesday/s are hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine in which you choose a book or books that you're excited and waiting for.
This week's Waiting on Wednesday book is:
Title: The 5th Wave
Author: Rick Yancey
Publisher: Putnam Juvenile
Publication date: May 7th 2013
Pre-order the book: Amazon / Barnes and Noble

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.

Why I'm excited for this:
I have no idea what the waves mean or signify but I sure as hell would like to! The premise is just so mystery and honestly a whole lot of creepy. And the cover? Oh my God. The color gives off such an eerie vibe to it! I seriously canNOT wait to read this one!
