What's New? Stacking the Shelves

StS is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews. Hop on over there to ogle what other bloggers got.

Another quiet week. Cue the halo. I'm going away for a family vacay and decided to use an iTunes gift certificate to buy this:

The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey. Unabridged MP3 audiobook, 12 hours, 42 minutes. Read by Brandon Espinoza and Phoebe Strole. Penguin Audio, May, 2013. 9781191618966. (Purchased)

Publisher synopsis: After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one.
Now, it's the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth's last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie's only hope for rescuing her brother—or even saving herself. But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up.
I picked up an arc of this one at ALA, but haven't yet gotten to it. I adore Yancey's Alfred Kropp books as well as his Monstrumologist books. When I learned it was an audiobook, I used a gift card to purchase it. Can't wait.

That's it for me. What's new with you?
