#002 Wishful Wednesday featuring The Hunt by Andrew Fukuda

Photobucket

Wishful Wednesday was inspired by Waiting on Wednesday and Desperately Wanting Wednesday by Breaking The Spine and Parajunkee.


Wishful Wesnesday is my own version of "Waiting On Wednesday". Every two weeks, I'll pick a topic or a genre and list a few upcoming books that I'm anticipating the release for. This week, it's going to be a special "book spot" for The Hunt by Andrew Fukuda. Feel free to join in, grab the banner, and/or share your WoW or Desperately Wanting Wednesday lists with me.

I thought I'd shake things up a bit here at the blog and do smething a little different. Since I really enjoyed reading Andrew Fukuda's new young adult novel The Hunt I thought I'd share a little audio snippet of it courtesy of Macmillian Audio.

Don’t Sweat. Don’t Laugh. Don’t draw attention to yourself. And most of all, whatever you do, do not fall in love with one of them.

Gene is different from everyone else around him. He can’t run with lightning speed, sunlight doesn’t hurt him and he doesn’t have an unquenchable lust for blood. Gene is a human, and he knows the rules. Keep the truth a secret. It’s the only way to stay alive in a world of night—a world where humans are considered a delicacy and hunted for their blood.

When he’s chosen for a once in a lifetime opportunity to hunt the last remaining humans, Gene’s carefully constructed life begins to crumble around him. He’s thrust into the path of a girl who makes him feel things he never thought possible—and into a ruthless pack of hunters whose suspicions about his true nature are growing. Now that Gene has finally found something worth fighting for, his need to survive is stronger than ever—but is it worth the cost of his humanity?
