~Can't Wait Wednesday: Nine~


                Can't Wait Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Wishful Endings.  Basically books that are not yet out that we are dying to get our hands on.  This week’s pick is:

Nine by Zach Hines
Out:  8/7

From Goodreads:
                In an alternate world startlingly close to our own, humans have nine lives—and they can’t wait to burn straight through them.

                As you shed lives, you shed your awkward phases:  one death is equal to one physical and mental upgrade.  Julian’s friends are obsessed with the idea of burning lives, but Julian is determined to stay on his first for as long as he can.  His mother, the ultimate cautionary tale, burned through her first eight in just a few years, and Julian has no intention of succumbing to the debilitating rebirth sickness that she inflicted on herself.

                But the regime has death incentives aimed at controlling overpopulation, and Julian realizes that he’s going to have to burn at some point—especially when he becomes the target for Nicholas, the manipulative leader of the Burners, the school’s suicide club.  And when Julian eventually succumbs, he uncovers suspicious gaps in the rebirth system that may explain exactly why his mother went so far down the rabbit hole years ago.  Along with a group of student dissenters, Julian sets out to find answers and is soon on the verge of exposing the greatest conspiracy ever unleashed on the world.

                He has just eight more lives to uncover he brutal truth.

Why I’m Waiting:
                 I discovered this one Wednesday recently and just LOVED the concept!  This sounds so out there but so cool at the same time.  I am interested to see where it all goes! 

                What are you waiting on?  Tell me below what you think of this title and leave a link to your CWW as well so I can check it out.

  7. First of all, so sorry for the late comment back.....I have gotten behind on all my replies and comments back. Been a bit busy with work lately. :(

    This sounds all kinds of AMAZING!! Never heard of such a concept before, either; it's HIGHLY original! And I'm definitely VERY curious as to where it all will lead!

    Thanks for sharing! Thanks as well for commenting on my own CWW post!! <3 :)
