Waiting on Wednesday (#2): More Than This by Patrick Ness

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted over at Breaking the Spine and gives bloggers a chance to highlight some upcoming releases we're looking forward to.


More Than This by Patrick Ness
Published: 5th September 2013 (Walker)

Plot summary:  A boy named Seth drowns, desperate and alone in his final moments, losing his life as the pounding sea claims him. But then he wakes. He is naked, thirsty, starving. But alive. How is that possible? He remembers dying, his bones breaking, his skull dashed upon the rocks. So how is he here? And where is this place? It looks like the suburban English town where he lived as a child, before an unthinkable tragedy happened and his family moved to America. But the neighborhood around his old house is overgrown, covered in dust, and completely abandoned. What’s going on? And why is it that whenever he closes his eyes, he falls prey to vivid, agonizing memories that seem more real than the world around him? Seth begins a search for answers, hoping that he might not be alone, that this might not be the hell he fears it to be, that there might be more than just this. . .

I've loved everything of Patrick Ness' that I've read so this was an obvious choice! I just finished the Chaos Walking trilogy so I need my next fix. Are you looking forward to More Than This? Let me know in the comments and if you have your own WoW post then link me up and I'll check it out!

    1. Yay! I'm so glad you're enjoying it :D I waited far too long to read the second book (which was probably my favourite of the three!) so I hope you enjoy that too :)
