Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings to
spotlight and discuss the books we're excited about that we have yet to read.
Release Date: May 1, 2018 by Del Rey Books
World War Z meets The Martian in the explosive follow-up to Sleeping Giants (“One of the most promising series kickoffs in recent memory”—NPR) and Waking Gods (“Pure, unadulterated literary escapism”—Kirkus Reviews).
In her childhood, Rose Franklin accidentally discovered a giant metal hand buried beneath the ground outside Deadwood, South Dakota. As an adult, Dr. Rose Franklin led the team that uncovered the rest of the body parts which together form Themis: a powerful robot of mysterious alien origin. She, along with linguist Vincent, pilot Kara, and the unnamed Interviewer, protected the Earth from geopolitical conflict and alien invasion alike. Now, after nearly ten years on another world, Rose returns to find her old alliances forfeit and the planet in shambles. And she must pick up the pieces of the Earth Defense Corps as her own friends turn against each other. [Goodreads Summary]
Why I want to read this one: First I have to read the first two books in the series, which I would really like to do. And then I can read this one. I have heard such great things about this series. I hope to get to it soon.
Have you read any of the books in this series?
What upcoming releases are you looking forward to?

Ooh Only Human. Can I just say I love the covers on these? Now I did read the first one and just thought it was okay, but I do kinda want to read books two and three to get the rest of the story!ReplyDelete
Greg - I love the covers for this series too. Hopefully the second two books in the series will go better for you.Delete
I am going to have to look in the first two books, this sounds really good!!!ReplyDelete

Verushka - We have some catching up to do. :-)Delete
I'm ready for this one too. And, yes, I've read the first two books, though I'm tempted to reread them. Probably won't have time for that though. Maybe I could listen to them. Anyway, yes, I'm waiting on this book too!ReplyDelete

Ronyell - Hopefully we will both enjoy it. :-)Delete
Kind of (though not entirely) put off this by comparisons with The Martian.ReplyDelete
Hope you get a copy soon, happy reading.
Tracy - I haven't read The Martian, although I did see the movie and enjoyed it.Delete
This series is on my radar though not crazy high on my list because its so different. I look forward to seeing of what you think of the series though!ReplyDelete
Katherine - There are just too many books I want to read too.Delete
Sleeping Giants is still on my TBR but I keep hearing great things about this series. The comparison to The Martian intrigues me since I really liked that book.ReplyDelete

I just finished this one a couple of days ago. So good!ReplyDelete
