Can't Wait Wednesday #5: Monster (Gone #7) by Michael Grant

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings to spotlight and talk about the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine.  My pick this week is a book that I squealed at work when I saw on another blog that this was going to be a book.  The Gone series by Michael Grant is one of my favorite series, it is a much better version of the very similar story, Under the Dome by Stephen King.  And to know I get to read more?  Well, let's just say I can't wait!  Here's the blurb from Goodreads:

In the stunning follow-up to the globally bestselling Gone series, Michael Grant continues the story of the teens who morph into superheroes—and supermonsters—when they ingest an alien virus.

Four years after the events of the FAYZ, new meteorites are hitting Earth, and the whole world is exposed to a strange alien virus that gives humans unique superpowers.

As some teens become heroes and others become dangerously out of control with their new powers, the world will become more terrifying than the FAYZ—and only a monstrous battle between good and evil can save them.






Have you read this series?  What do you think, do you want to read this one, or go back and start the whole series?  What book are you eagerly awaiting this week?

  1. I love the idea of teens morphing into superheroes but I've not read any of the Gone books. It seems like I'm really behind if this is book 7.

    1. I don't know if you can start with this one, you probably should go back and start with Gone. It is the book that first got me into Grant's books. Thanks for stopping by!

  10. OMG, this sounds SO AWESOME!! I've never even heard of the Gone series, though. so yes, I would want to start at the beginning! I love reading SF and dystopian novels, so I'm definitely interested!! I'll start by adding the first book to my Goodreads shelves. If I enjoy that one, then I'll go on with the rest of the series, but I can tell you right now that I do think I'll love these books!! Thanks for featuring the new, upcoming release!! <3 :)

    Thanks as well for stopping by and commenting on my own CWW post!! Hope you're having a GREAT day!! <3 :)
