You may be sitting there going, Mandy, when did you read The Fifth Wave, because I’m pretty sure that I have never heard you even mention this book ever before on the blog. So, what are you doing posting about a book way into the series?
Well, with the third book releases today, and I mean, what is the better time to revisit the series now that the third book is out in paperback. Here are 3 reasons that I’m getting into the hype of the paperback release of The Last Star, and why I am so excited to read this series now!
I have finally figured out this was not the series I thought it was.
For the longest time, I got this book series confused with another series. They both involved world-ending shenanigans with the main girl running off on her own and meeting some mysterious guy. I was forever confusing these two with each other, and that book was not pleasing. However, now that I know this isn’t the book, I’m more than pumped to try it again.
I saw the movie, and I was hooked.
So, I did read this book a while ago – okay, started this book and stopped for some odd reason – maybe I wasn’t feeling it at the time since I’m weird about my aliens or had it as a library book. But I stopped. But I was like, oh, I can watch the movie because I technically read the book. It meant to just be something to feed my YA love and be background noise, but I loved it. I thought it was so interesting, and I can’t wait to read how it actually is – and continue the story.
I heard it could be life-changing.
The always wonderful Nadwa @ Painfully Fictional (um, are you following her yet because seriously she’s so amazing – click the link above) talks about this series quite a bit, and more than a few times, she has talked about how this has made her think, changed her views, etc. I have yet to read a book that has really, really rocked my worldview (I take book for entertainment to heart so I totally miss the epic real world books). I totally am interested to see if this book will do that for me as well.
Um, what are you waiting for?
Well, apparently I was waiting for the release of the paperback release of the last book, and I wasn’t even aware of it. I’ll definitely be trying this series again, and I can’t wait to see what it has in store.
More About The Last Star
The enemy is Other. The enemy is us.
They’re down here, they’re up there, they’re nowhere. They want the Earth, they want us to have it. They came to wipe us out, they came to save us.
But beneath these riddles lies one truth: Cassie has been betrayed. So has Ringer. Zombie. Nugget. And all 7.5 billion people who used to live on our planet. Betrayed first by the Others, and now by ourselves.
In these last days, Earth’s remaining survivors will need to decide what’s more important: saving themselves…or saving what makes us human.
