Waiting on Wednesday (33): A day late

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine in which we showcase upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating. 

Inhuman (Fetch #1)
by Kat Falls

Goodreads Synopsis:

In a world ravaged by mutation, a teenage girl must travel into the forbidden Savage Zone to recover lost artifacts or her father’s life is forfeit.

America has been ravaged by a war that has left the eastern half of the country riddled with mutation. Many of the people there exhibit varying degrees of animal traits. Even the plantlife has gone feral.

Crossing from west to east is supposed to be forbidden, but sometimes it’s necessary. Some enter the Savage Zone to provide humanitarian relief. Sixteen-year-old Lane’s father goes there to retrieve lost artifacts—he is a Fetch. It’s a dangerous life, but rewarding—until he’s caught.

Desperate to save her father, Lane agrees to complete his latest job. That means leaving behind her life of comfort and risking life and limb—and her very DNA—in the Savage Zone. But she’s not alone. In order to complete her objective, Lane strikes a deal with handsome, roguish Rafe. In exchange for his help as a guide, Lane is supposed to sneak him back west. But though Rafe doesn’t exhibit any signs of “manimal” mutation, he’s hardly civilized . . . and he may not be trustworthy.

Why I'm Waiting:

She had me at "handsome, roguish Rafe". Need I say more?
Okay, I'll say more ;) 
Here are 3 reasons, besides the obvious rogue, that I'm looking forward to this book.
1. Post-apocalyptic-ish. I'm a sucker for that.
2. Mutations? I'm game.
3. Kick-butt heroine? I can only hope. 

So are y'all looking forward to this seemingly action/adventure packed book? Let me know in the comments below!

All the best

Sorry for the unexplained absence!

Hey guys! 

So, in case y'all haven't noticed, I've been MIA these past couple weeks. Sorry about that. I headed back to school and was getting all my classes, books, dorm and life in general together. But, alas, I am back. I know y'all are excited to hear that. 

So what do I have planned? Well, this week will probably only be two memes (Waiting on Wednesday and Stacking the Shelves), but come next week I'll start back up with reviews! Woohoo!!!! 

Now, to get to writing those reviews!

All the best ♥
