Hello book lovers! Welcome back to Waiting on Wednesday – a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. This week’s most anticipated release is…
Waste of Space by Gina Damico
Description (from Goodreads):
Cram ten hormonal teens into a spaceship and blast off: that’s the premise for the ill-conceived reality show Waste of Space. The kids who are cast know everything about drama—and nothing about the fact that the production is fake. Hidden in a desert warehouse, their spaceship replica is equipped with state-of-the-art special effects dreamed up by the scientists partnering with the shady cable network airing the show. And it’s a hit! Millions of viewers are transfixed. But then, suddenly, all communication is severed. Trapped and paranoid, the kids must figure out what to do when this reality show loses its grip on reality.
Release Date: July 12, 2017
Why I’m Waiting: Strangely enough, this book almost sounds like The 100 in reverse: instead of sending a bunch of moody kids down to Earth, let’s send them into space! But of course it all goes wrong, leading to grand adventure and/or the possibility of freezing in the vacuum of space. Bring it on!
Back at you, book lovers: what are you looking forward to reading this Wednesday?
