Waiting on Wednesday {34}

Jill @ Breaking the Spine hosts this weekly meme where we can share a book that we are so excited for and are anxiously awaiting their upcoming release!

This week my WoW pick is...

Rush (The Game #1) by Eve Silver!
Release Date ~ June 11, 2013 from Katherine Tegan Books

Goodreads Description:
So what’s the game now? This, or the life I used to know?

When Miki Jones is pulled from her life, pulled through time and space into some kind of game—her carefully controlled life spirals into chaos. In the game, she and a team of other teens are sent on missions to eliminate the Drau, terrifying and beautiful alien creatures. There are no practice runs, no training, and no way out. Miki has only the guidance of secretive but maddeningly attractive team leader Jackson Tate, who says the game isn’t really a game, that what Miki and her new teammates do now determines their survival, and the survival of every other person on this planet. She laughs. He doesn’t. And then the game takes a deadly and terrifying turn.

There's a few reasons I've grown to become REALLY excited about Rush - first of all, my interest was picqued at the mention of "alien creatures", the Drau. I'd really love to read more alien books, because there's so much potential there from a YA standpoint and I'm utterly fascinated by the idea of aliens.

And then there's the survival aspect. I love The Hunger Games and Rush sounds very different - but I'm really into this idea of a survival game. I can't wait to see what Eve has done with this idea in her book!

I want to hear what you're waiting for this week too! Any other sci fi fans out there that can't wait to read Rush?

Rush sounds like an intense book. It has been on my TBR list ever since I first saw it on the Epic Reads Arc Party. Great pick!
