Waiting on Wednesday #28


“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine where we spotlight books we are eagerly anticipating.

Not A Drop To Drink by Mindy McGinnis

Expected Publication: September 24th, 2013

Preorder: Amazon* / Barnes & Noble / Book Depository

*I receive a small monetary kickback from Amazon purchases

Regret was for people with nothing to defend, people who had no water.

Lynn knows every threat to her pond: drought, a snowless winter, coyotes, and, most importantly, people looking for a drink. She makes sure anyone who comes near the pond leaves thirsty, or doesn’t leave at all.

Confident in her own abilities, Lynn has no use for the world beyond the nearby fields and forest. Having a life means dedicating it to survival, and the constant work of gathering wood and water. Having a pond requires the fortitude to protect it, something Mother taught her well during their quiet hours on the rooftop, rifles in hand.

But wisps of smoke on the horizon mean one thing: strangers. The mysterious footprints by the pond, nighttime threats, and gunshots make it all too clear Lynn has exactly what they want, and they won’t stop until they get it….

With evocative, spare language and incredible drama, danger, and romance, debut author Mindy McGinnis depicts one girl’s journey in a barren world not so different than our own.

I didn’t pay much attention to this one because the cover didn’t grab me…but this sounds like it could be really interesting.Why is the water supply so low? I also love that this seems more like a personal novel instead of a  ‘look at the world, I’m going to fix it!’ kind of novel.

So what do you think? What are you waiting on this week?

    I’m curious about this one too! I agree that it seems to be more of a personal story as opposed to one that is a typical action-adventure/dystopian one.

  19. Even though the cover is kind of plain, I think it’s very eye-catching and perfect for this book.
