Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a bookish meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we can't wait for.

Another zombie one this week! I finished Deadline (my review) this week and it was AWESOME. I'm still kind of blown away by how good this book was, and I can't wait until the last part in the Newsflesh Trilogy is released.

Blackout by Mira Grant
Expected publication June 1st by Orbit

Rise up while you can. -Georgia Mason

The year was 2014. The year we cured cancer. The year we cured the common cold. And the year the dead started to walk. The year of the Rising.

The year was 2039. The world didn't end when the zombies came, it just got worse. Georgia and Shaun Mason set out on the biggest story of their generation. The uncovered the biggest conspiracy since the Rising and realized that to tell the truth, sacrifices have to be made.

Now, the year is 2041, and the investigation that began with the election of President Ryman is much bigger than anyone had assumed. With too much left to do and not much time left to do it in, the surviving staff of After the End Times must face mad scientists, zombie bears, rogue government agencies-and if there's one thing they know is true in post-zombie America, it's this:

Things can always get worse.

Blackout is the conclusion to the epic trilogy that began in the Hugo-nominated Feed and the sequel, Deadline.

I don't like this cover that much either, the Deadline and Feed ones were better. But the book sounds awesome o:

This is a series I've been meaning to start since I saw all the rave reviews from my Goodreads friends when book 2 came out.
