By: Robert L. Slater
YA Post-Apocalyptic.  Lizzie finds herself in a world that is emptied by disease.  She thinks she might be alone, but soon finds other survivors and sets off on a mission across the country to find a family member that she thought was dead.

Other Books Out This Week:

So I definitely want to read Me Since You and Bright Before Sunrise.  I am seriously considering All is Silence because it sounds awesome... and Maybe One Day is a maybe.  I don't know if I want to read anymore cancer books.  I mean I feel like TFIOS laid down the gauntlet on that topic and nothing else will ever be as good.  Just my opinion :)

What new books are you going to read??


  1. Loved Me Since You, it such a heartbreaking and emotional book! I didn't really care to much for Insanity. Maybe One Day sounds really good, I'll definitely have to check it out!

  2. Lots of great books this week. So many on my TBR. Too little time!

  3. I read an ARC of MAYBE ONE DAY and its now one of my favorite reads of 2014. It's more about friendship than anything else…and dance. and learning to love your own skin, and be yourself. Ugh. It's a tear jerker for sure. <3
