Can't Wait Wednesday


Can't Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at http://www.wishfulendings.com/ to spotlight and discuss books we're excited about but haven't read, which may not even be released yet. 

NB: I don't follow or leave comments on blogs run by Google Plus, or DISQUS as I refuse to join something just to leave comments, and I won't allow them to follow new people, update my profile or post tweets 'on my behalf'. I won't comment on any blog that makes me sign in using another account. 

This week!


As a prepper, Grayson Rowan was prepared for almost anything. Anything other than being totally alone when the sh*t hits the fan. While he sat back and watched the United States rattle swords with Korea, play chicken with Russia, and strong-arm China, he felt sure if the lights went out, that he and his family would be ready and safe—whether it was due to a natural disaster or a man-made event. They had everything they needed at their homestead. What he wasn’t prepared for, was his family not being home if it ever happened.

Olivia Rowan is with her sisters, Gabby and Emma, on a girls-only trip to Myrtle Beach. When chaos erupts and there’s no gas, their journey home is a nightmare, filled with predators and danger—and apparently, Olivia hadn’t learned a thing her husband tried to teach her.

When your neighbors run out of water and turn on each other, what will you do? Jake, a country boy mechanic, never believed in TEOTWAWKI, but he’d heard his brother-in-law preach about it many times. He knew what to do; but he didn’t prepare. He lazily left it all up to Grayson—he was the prepper after all. When catastrophe strikes, will he continue to keep his head stuck in the sand while his clueless neighbors destroy each other, and his wife is stuck out on the road; or will he stand up and fight like a man?

And if you’re alone? Bug in or Bug out?

Graysie Rowan, a freshman at University, just wants to go home. When no word comes from the government, and the state capital is overrun with looters, chaos and mayhem, the college administration puts the students on lock-down. But her dad, Grayson, had prepared her for this. Now, if she can only remember what it was he said to do…

If they want to survive this post-apocalyptic event, they’ll all have to learn to fight like a man.
The end came not with boots on the ground, nuclear weapons or an EMP. It snuck in with a quiet clatter at the back door and flipped the switch, covering the states in darkness and sending this family on three divergent paths that ultimately lead home. When they collide in this surreal and gripping family drama, it won’t be without bullets and bloodshed.  

I love my apocalypses!!! I'm not sure if I'll love this or want to headbutt the characters but I do want to read it! It was released on September 2nd so I hope to grab it very soon.

    1. The sample was decent but it cut off before we meet the women so I hope they aren't whiny!

    1. Nothing excites more than the end of the world...in fiction, that is!

  6. I really like the sounds of this one so if you don't want to headbutt the characters I may check this one out. You know, I just relooked at the release date and since it was only 2.99 on Kindle, I went ahead and grabbed it. What can I say, I have a headache and need a pick-me-up. Plus my Mom is driving me crazy.

    1. The MC in the sample was good but we don't get to meet the women so I hope they aren't butt pains! Ah Book Therapy is much underrated and totally required in life! I'll be doing a discussion post on that in a few weeks!

  7. Haha! I can see this one going either way--being really good or you wanting to headbutt the characters. Maybe even both. :-) I do like the sound of it though. I hope you get a chance to read this one soon!

  8. Ooh, I think I want to read this one, too! Let's hope it's not a disappointing dystopian. :)

  9. I do like the sound of the characters trying to remember, or figure out, what they should do. Sounds realistic.
