Waiting on Wednesday #9 - The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. This is where we get to spotlight books that we are anxiously waiting to be released. The ones that we are dying to get our hands on and read into the wee hours of the night (and quite possibly make our shelves beautiful too!)

This week I'm waiting on....

Author: Patrick Ness
Publisher: Walker Books
Release Date: August 27th, 2015
Goodreads Synopsis:
What if you weren’t the Chosen One?
What if you’re not the one who’s so often the hero in YA fiction; who’s supposed to fight the zombies, or the soul-eating ghosts, or whatever this new thing is, with the blue lights and the death? What if you were like Mikey? Who just wants to graduate and go to prom and maybe finally work up the courage to ask Henna out before someone goes and blows up the high school. Again. Because sometimes there are problems bigger than this week’s end of the world and sometimes you just have to find the extraordinary in your ordinary life. Even if your best friend might just be the God of mountain lions...
Why I'm excited: I'm a huge fan of Patrick Ness. I haven't gotten around to reading More Than This yet, but the Chaos Walking series is one of my favourites (and A Monster Calls is just.. wow) so, obviously, I'm super excited for this book. Plus the cover is awesome. And the synopsis. A good underdog story is always wonderful. I so cannot wait for this book!

That's my Waiting on Wednesday! What books are you looking forward to? Leave a comment below!
