Waiting on Wednesday [7]

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted over at Breaking The Spine. The purpose is to spotlight upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating!

This week I'm waiting on The Power of Six by Pittacus Lore!

I've seen him on the news. Followed the stories about what happened in Ohio. John Smith, out there, on the run. To the world, he's a mystery. But to me . . . he's one of us.

Nine of us came here, but sometimes I wonder if time has changed us—if we all still believe in our mission. How can I know? There are six of us left. We're hiding, blending in, avoiding contact with one another . . . but our Legacies are developing, and soon we'll be equipped to fight. Is John Number Four, and is his appearance the sign I've been waiting for? And what about Number Five and Six? Could one of them be the raven-haired girl with the stormy eyes from my dreams? The girl with powers that are beyond anything I could ever imagine? The girl who may be strong enough to bring the six of us together?

They caught Number One in Malaysia.
Number Two in England.
And Number Three in Kenya.
They tried to catch Number Four in Ohio—and failed.

I am Number Seven. One of six still alive.

And I'm ready to fight.

Okay so I know this is coming out of James Frey's fiction factory (which I totally DO NOT support) but I actually thought I Am Number Four was pretty good (the movie was freaking AWESOME!) and I'm curious to see where the story goes. The summary of this one sounds even better than I Am Number Four. Although I have to say that the title is super misleading. Its not about Number Six but Number Seven? Yeahhh weirdness.

The Power of Six is coming out on August 23rd. Will you be reading it?

  1. I have I Am Number Four on my tbr pile and I loved the movie so I definitely have to read it before The Power of Six comes out.

  2. I Am Number Four was only okay for me, but I'm still interested to find out what happens with John. Here's my WOW:
    Happy reading!

  3. I am probably going to read this but I refuse to buy it.

  4. Seems like a fascinating series. Kyle and I are reading The Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin on the Kindle. Thought about that series? Its definitely a ponderous tome... I've been reading out loud almost 40 hours and it still says we're only at 8% of the book. Endless!
