Waiting on Wednesday: The Awakened

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature, hosted by Breaking the Spine, where bloggers share upcoming releases they're eagerly anticipating. 

This week's pick is:
The Awakened by Sara E. Santana 
Expected Publication Date: December 1st, 2015

Zoey Valentine is concerned with two things: surviving the multitude of self-defense classes her dad makes her take and avoiding Ash Matthews.

That is, until the Z virus hits, wiping out a third of the population in a matter of weeks. If that weren’t frightening enough, the bodies of the victims disappear and suddenly reappear, awakened from their dead state. They're faster, smarter, and they work together to get the one thing they crave, human flesh.

The United States is in a panic and then the government decides the unthinkable: to bomb every major city overrun with the awakened.

Now Zoey is on the run, with her dad and Ash, desperate to find a place of safety amongst the ruined remains of the country. 

I admire Sara both as a person and as an author, so I'm SO excited that she's finally getting published. I've had the chance to read parts of The Awakened on Wattpad and Swoon Reads, but I'm excited to get the read the whole thing. And if you don't know Sara, check out her blog! She's super cool. 

What are you waiting on this Wednesday? Let me know!
