Waiting on Wednesday- The Burning World (Warm Bodies #2) By: Isaac Marion


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature/meme hosted here at Breaking the Spine . The idea behind it is to share upcoming releases that we can't wait to get our hands on!

My pick for this week is The Burning World By Isaac Marion. This is the second book in the Warm Bodies series. I picked this one because I really, really enjoyed the first one. Back in 2011 when I read Warm Bodies I had no idea what to expect. I randomly picked up this book at the bookstore not long after it came out and I honestly had no clue what I was getting into! At first I was a bit unsure what I was reading exactly. However, I ended up thinking the book was pretty humorous, in an odd way. I am hoping that The Burning World has the same charm to it. I enjoy the whole zombie thing and I can't wait to see what R is up to!

Expected Publication Date: August 9, 2016


Summary From Goodreads: 

Being alive is hard. Being human is harder. But since his recent recovery from death, R is making progress. He's learning how to read, how to speak, maybe even how to love, and the city's undead population is showing signs of life. R can almost imagine a future with Julie, this girl who restarted his heart--building a new world from the ashes of the old one. 

And then helicopters appear on the horizon. Someone is coming to restore order. To silence all this noise. To return things to the way they were, the good old days of stability and control and the strong eating the weak. The plague is ancient and ambitious, and the Dead were never its only weapon. 

How do you fight an enemy that's in everyone? Can the world ever really change? With their home overrun by madmen, R, Julie, and their ragged group of refugees plunge into the otherworldly wastelands of America in search of answers. But there are some answers R doesn't want to find. A past life, an old shadow, crawling up from the basement. 

Anyone else looking forward to this second book in the Warm Bodies series? What books are you waiting for?
