Waiting on Wednesday: The Storm (The Rain #2) by Virginia Bergin

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we're eagerly awaiting.  My choice this week is the sequel to a book I read and enjoyed last year.  It was called H20 then, but is now called The Rain I guess.  I believe the egalley is available on either Netgalley or Edelweiss now as well.  So I will have to get it.  Here is the blurb on the sequel from Goodreads:


"I'll tell you a weird thing about apocalypses - a thing I didn't even know until I was in one: they seem pretty bad, don't they? Well, take it from me: they can always get worse."

Three months after the killer rain first fell, Ruby is beginning to realise her father might be dead . . . and that she cannot survive alone. When a chance encounter lands her back in the army camp, Ruby thinks she is safe - at a price. Being forced to live with Darius Spratt is bad enough, but if Ruby wants to stay she must keep her eyes - and her mouth - shut. It's not going to happen. When she realizes what is going on - the army is trying to find a cure by experimenting on human subjects - Ruby flips out . . . and makes an even more shocking discovery: she's not useless at all. The Storm begins . . .



Sounds so good.  I can't wait to read on and find out  what happens after this big natural disaster.  My only issue is that I loved the cover of the first one when it was called H2O 
The slipcover actually had holes in it, it was cool!  Not sure this new one matches up.  

Anyway, what about you?  What book are you waiting on this week?

  1. I'm really liking the sound of Storm :) Usually post-apocalyptic books aren't my favourite but the cover for H2O is super cool and it sounds pretty original. Thanks for sharing!

    1. It's not necessarily like other post-apocalyptic books, and it definitely didn't start out the way I normally think it would. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I don't think I've heard about the first book but maybe the fact that the title changed is what's throwing me off. Regardless this sounds like a really good series, I'll have to check it out! I hope you love the sequel just as much Lisa :)

  8. H20 brought some serious feelings out of me. It was a love/hate relationship and it about drove me crazy. Lol! I didn't really like the MC and how she was worried about silly things instead of what mattered, BUT I have to read the sequel. Yep. It sucked me in. Thanks for stopping by!

    1. True, there were times I just wanted to smack the main character, but it almost made it more realistic to me. Thanks for returning the stop!

    1. Really? I think the new one looks like every other book, and I liked the uniqueness of the original. But that's why they say not to judge by the cover! Thanks for stopping by!

  13. Very intriguing snippet! It sounds like other historical fiction I've read before in terms of despair and drama but with a modern twist obviously. Im excited! Thanks for sharing!

    1. It's not really historical fiction at all, it's a futuristic story. But it is a good read. Thanks for visiting!

  14. Ha, I'm used to seeing the UK cover (I think it's the UK cover, anyway, since it does match that the sequel, so gather so.) so didn't realise that was that one! Haven't read the first one yet though, sounds slightly weird, haha, but good. :)
