Waiting on Wednesday {24}

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...

The Hunt (Untitled #1) by Andrew Fukuda
To be released ~ May 8, 2012

Goodreads Synopsis:
In a world where humans have been eaten to near extinction, seventeen-year-old Gene has only managed to survive by painstakingly concealing his true species. If the bloodthirsty creatures surrounding him knew what he really was—a human—he would be devoured swiftly and terribly. When Gene is chosen to participate in the government-sponsored hunt for the last remaining humans, it thrusts him into the fight of his life—and into the path of a human girl who makes him feel things he never thought possible. Now, he must learn the art of the hunt and elude his fellow hunters whose suspicions about his true human nature are growing. But most importantly, Gene and the girl he loves must find a way to forge a life together in a brutal world that’s bent on their destruction.

With his propulsive plot and highly developed characters, readers will find it impossible to resist the vivid world Andrew Fukuda has created in this stunning standout debut. Readers craving a book that grips and mesmerizes them like The Hunger Games will love The Hunt.

Okay, okay... I know we're all a little sick of Hunger Games comparisons BUT doesn't this one sound terribly exciting?! My heart is racing just reading that description because I ADORE the sounds of this one. It sounds like it's going to be an absolutely thrilling book and I simply cannot wait for this one! I'm kind of getting an Immortal Rules (which I'm also dying to read!) vibe from it, but we'll see!

Thoughts? Are you familiar with this one? What upcoming release are you excited for this week?

The vampires in this story seem different than in other stories. Yes, they drink blood, yes they're bloodthirsty, yes they can't go in sunlight, but they don't have to hide what they are. Most vampire books, the world is dominated by humans, and the vampires have to hide what they are; it's the humans who hunt the vampires. When people say "a new take on the paranormal world" now, The Hunt is what pops into my mind. The story is wonderfully written, twists and turns at every edge. It was weird seeing them use "unknown"phrases when they were ones we used every day. I just wanted to jump up and say "I know what it means!" When they did something that seemed unnatural I wanted to shout "That's what you're supposed to do!" I smiled and shook my head so much, I'm surprised my head wasn't stuck that way. I trusted Ashley June until about three fourths in because of a warning issued by a stranger.
