This is a new feature I'm starting up, because as book bloggers we all know that there are too many books to read, and not enough time. I need to know which books are must-reads and which ones I can just plain ignore.This week: The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey
For which I turn to you, my readers! I'll pick a book each week that I'm wondering about, and you can tell me if I should GET IT...or just FORGET IT.
I'm going to state up front here that I am not a big fan of aliens. I enjoyed The Host by Stephenie Meyer, but it was more fantasy than sci-fi anyway. But: The 5th Wave has gotten such an overwhelming amount of positive buzz that it's caught even my sci-fi-wary interest. So I'm wondering... is this the kind of sci-fi book that can be enjoyed even by skittish, alien-shy readers? Or do you need to be a hardcore sci-fi fan to appreciate this book?
Also, does it REALLY live up to the hype? Let me know...vote, and then give me your opinion in the comments!
