Waiting on Wednesday 10/18/17

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that first originated at Breaking the Spine but has since linked up with “Can’t Wait Wednesday” at Wishful Endings now that the original creator is unable to host it anymore. Either way, this fun feature is a chance to showcase the upcoming releases that we can’t wait to get our hands on!

Mogsy’s Pick

Drop by Drop by Morgan Llywelyn (June 26, 2018 by Tor Books)

Every once in a while I’ll be browsing through upcoming titles and come across a blurb that sounds so bizarre -and so intriguing – that I just can’t help but throw it onto my TBR. This was one of those books, a sci-fi novel with presumably apocalyptic themes given our society’s heavy reliance on plastics. Hope it ends up being as interesting as it looks.

The first science fiction novel from the bestselling author Morgan Llywelyn, a near-future thriller where technology fails and a small town struggles to survive global catastrophe.

In this first book in the Step By Step trilogy, global catastrophe occurs as all plastic mysteriously liquefies. All the small components making many technologies possible―Navigation systems, communications, medical equipment―fail.

In Sycamore River, citizens find their lives disrupted as everything they’ve depended on melts around them, with sometimes fatal results. All they can rely upon is themselves.

And this is only the beginning…”

  1. I saw this and the story sounds so cool, but I can’t get past the cover. For some reason I am weirded out by body parts covered in strange stuff (mostly food), and this is making me cringe. Yep, I’m that person who turns off the TV every time a food fight comes on!

    • Haha, yeah the cover is at once pretty but also kind of disturbing. I couldn’t figure out what the blue stuff might be. At first, I thought it might be just blue paint, but now I’m thinking maybe those blue nitrile gloves people use in labs? 😛
