Waiting On Wednesday - August 31st

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine. It is a chance to share books that have us readers counting down to release day.

This week I’m waiting on,
The Other Life
by Susanne Winnacker
Releases: February 2012
Synopsis via Goodreads

Sherry and her family have lived sealed in a bunker in the garden since things went wrong up above. Her grandfather has been in the freezer for the last three months, her parents are at each other’s throats and two minutes ago they ran out of food.

Sherry and her father leave the safety of the bunker and find a devastated and empty LA, smashed to pieces by bombs and haunted by ‘Weepers’ - rabid humans infected with a weaponized rabies virus.

While searching for food in a supermarket, Sherry’s father disappears and Sherry is saved by Joshua, a boy-hunter. He takes her to Safe-haven, a tumble-down vineyard in the hills outside LA, where a handful of other survivors are picking up the pieces of their ‘other lives’. As she falls in love for the first time, Sherry must save her father, stay alive and keep Joshua safe when his desire for vengeance threatens them all.

Why I’m “waiting on” The Other Life? I’m a sucker for any dystopian/post-apocalyptic tale especially if there are zombie like creatures roaming the earth. This one sounds super cool! 

What are you waiting on this week?


  1. Wow, that sounds like a book that isn't for the faint of heart! Which totally makes it for me. ;) I'm checking that one out! I'm waiting on the new edition of Promise by Kristie Cook. I've been looking forward to it for a while!

  2. I just saw this book recently...I have to read this! Grandpa in the freezer sold me :)

  3. O excellent. I haven't heard of this one. Sounds exciting.

  4. this looks like a unique take on the dystopians!
