Release Day Blitz: The Last Star in Paperback +GIVEAWAY!!!!





Today I am participating in the release blitz and giveaway for The Last Star. 

This is the last book in The 5th Wave series.
If you don't know much about the series below is the summary for each book. And below those is the book trailer for The 5th Wave.
  I showed the trailer to my 7th graders when the book was coming out, and they immediately wanted to read it! 

The 5th Wave
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.

The Infinite Sea
How do you rid the Earth of seven billion humans? Rid the humans of their humanity.

Surviving the first four waves was nearly impossible. Now Cassie Sullivan finds herself in a new world, a world in which the fundamental trust that binds us together is gone. As the 5th Wave rolls across the landscape, Cassie, Ben, and Ringer are forced to confront the Others’ ultimate goal: the extermination of the human race.

Cassie and her friends haven’t seen the depths to which the Others will sink, nor have the Others seen the heights to which humanity will rise, in the ultimate battle between life and death, hope and despair, love and hate.

The Last Star
They’re down here, they’re up there, they’re nowhere. They want the Earth, they want us to have it. They came to wipe us out, they came to save us.

But beneath these riddles lies one truth: Cassie has been betrayed. So has Ringer. Zombie. Nugget. And all 7.5 billion people who used to live on our planet. Betrayed first by the Others, and now by ourselves.

In these last days, Earth’s remaining survivors will need to decide what’s more important: saving themselves…or saving what makes us human.


Book Trailer


Below is a re-run of my original review of The 5th Wave.

I really enjoyed this book! Yes it took a bit at the beginning for the set up - but there was a lot of background you needed to know, so you can understand where the story is at now.  Thankfully much of this was done between action sequences, so that helped a lot.  What I really liked about it was the fact I NEVER knew who I could trust and who I couldn't trust! At one point I like "Oh no I can't trust that dude," but then I'm like "Whoa maybe I can?!".  It went like that a lot.  And even at the end I'm still not 100% sure! Fantastic and frustrating all at the same time.  

Loved the characters.  Cassie is great.  Nice strong girl, but yet still realistic - making mistakes, being stubborn and being human.  What's funny is that the whole time being human is something that can't be completely trusted in this book.  She's the kind of girl I'd like to have with me if I was stuck in a post-apocalyptic world! 

There was one part that drove me a bit nuts and that was the descriptions of Evan.  If I had to hear one more time what his eyes looked like, my eyes would have been permanently rolled! Annoying but minor.  

Can't wait for the next book in the series because I have to know what happens to Cassie and the rest of the cast of characters.
