Waiting On Wednesday # 85 – After the End & Midnight Crossroad


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine where I have the chance to spotlight an upcoming release that I’m eagerly anticipating.

After the End
After the End (After the End, #1)Author: Amy Plum
Series: After the End #1
Genre: YA Dystopian
Expected Publication: May 6th 2014







She’s searching for answers to her past. They’re hunting her to save their future.

World War III has left the world ravaged by nuclear radiation. A lucky few escaped to the Alaskan wilderness. They've survived for the last thirty years by living off the land, being one with nature, and hiding from whoever else might still be out there.

At least, this is what Juneau has been told her entire life.

When Juneau returns from a hunting trip to discover that everyone in her clan has vanished, she sets off to find them. Leaving the boundaries of their land for the very first time, she learns something horrifying: There never was a war. Cities were never destroyed. The world is intact. Everything was a lie.

Now Juneau is adrift in a modern-day world she never knew existed. But while she's trying to find a way to rescue her friends and family, someone else is looking for her. Someone who knows the extraordinary truth about the secrets of her past.

Midnight Crossroad
Midnight Crossroad (Midnight, Texas, #1)Author: Charlaine Harris
Series: Midnight, Texas #1
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Expected Publication: May 6th 2014







FIRST IN A NEW TRILOGY

From Charlaine Harris, the bestselling author who created Sookie Stackhouse and her world of Bon Temps, Louisiana, comes a darker locale—populated by more strangers than friends. But then, that’s how the locals prefer it…

Welcome to Midnight, Texas, a town with many boarded-up windows and few full-time inhabitants, located at the crossing of Witch Light Road and Davy Road. It’s a pretty standard dried-up western town.

There’s a pawnshop (someone lives in the basement and is seen only at night). There’s a diner (people who are just passing through tend not to linger). And there’s new resident Manfred Bernardo, who thinks he’s found the perfect place to work in private (and who has secrets of his own).

Stop at the one traffic light in town, and everything looks normal. Stay awhile, and learn the truth...


What are you waiting for? Please leave a comment below with your WoW link so I can check out yours too!!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great Wednesday!!

  1. I am really interested to see how Midnight Crossroad is going to do. I think I got so worn down on Sookie, I can't imagine Charlaine writing anything else. The title also reminds me of the crossroad demons on Supernatural! LOL

  2. I thought After the End was already out. Oh yeah, I saw Midnight Crossroads on Netgalley but it's not available in the US. Booo.

  16. I feel bad that I haven't read any of Amy Plum's other series - despite having Die for Me on my nook shelf as long as I can remember! This new series of Plum's sounds really super intriguing - even more than her other one! Definitely adding it to my wish list! This is the first I've heard of it :O
