Waiting on Wednesday


"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, originally started by Jill at Breaking the Spine , that highlights upcoming book releases everyone is waiting on...hence the title. This week's pick is Adaptation by Malinda Lo. Here's the synopsis:

"
Reese and David don't remember what happened to them after a bird flew into their headlights on the Extraterrestrial Highway--not the resulting car accident and certainly not a bit of the 21 days of care at the military hospital in Nevada. It's a good thing, the doctors and colonels tell them, that they crashed on a military base, but they won't tell Reese and David what the extent of their injuries were, or how they were healed. They do tell them they're not going home, though, until they sign a confidentiality agreement.

When they get home, Reese can't help but find everything a little weird. Worldwide bird strikes resulting in plane crashes have grounded air travel, David won't talk to her, and she could swear she's seen her military doctors around the neighborhood. It's only when she meets Amber Grey that things in her life begin to really fall apart, and the mysteries of the bird strikes, the military, and her own treatment come together. Reese realizes that she must find out what they did to her in that hospital, but her search for the truth threatens to expose a vast global conspiracy that the government has worked for decades to keep secret.

What if we aren't alone in the universe? What if the alien is inside us?"

I can't tell you how much the synopsis really floats my boat - a conspiracy and alien involvement? YES! It reads like a movie and I can't wait to see it play out when I read the book!
Adaptation is published on 18th September, 2012 with no news yet of a UK release.

    1. Thanks for your comment Nina. Not sure about UK release but that's not to say that we won't get it at some point. You know the UK is usually a bit behind...

  5. This is actually on my TBR. Not because of the concept or the plot description, but because the book cover actually creeps me the f**k (is cursing allowed on your blog) out.
