Can't Wait Wednesday #39: #murdertrending by Gretchen McNeil

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.  This week I'm featuring a book by one of my favorite authors.  It's a standalone, YA futuristic murder mystery story.  Here is the blurb from Goodreads:


WELCOME TO THE NEAR FUTURE, where good and honest 8/18 citizens can enjoy watching the executions of society’s most infamous convicted felons, streaming live on The Postman app from the suburbanized prison island Alcatraz 2.0.

When eighteen-year-old Dee Guerrera wakes up in a haze, lying on the ground of a dimly lit warehouse, she realizes she’s about to be the next victim of the app. Knowing hardened criminals are getting a taste of their own medicine in this place is one thing, but Dee refuses to roll over and die for a heinous crime she didn’t commit. Can Dee and her newly formed posse, the Death Row Breakfast Club, prove she’s innocent before she ends up wrongfully murdered for the world to see? Or will The Postman’s cast of executioners kill them off one by one?




What do you think?  Does it sound good to you?  Kinda reminds me of that movie Minority Report.  Have you read anything by this author?  I've read almost all of her other books, and they all grab me and keep me hostage when I pick them up, I can't put them down!  What book are you eagerly awaiting this week?

  8. I don't think I've read any of Gretchen McNeil's books, but I feel like she has a new one published every couple of months! It's kind of amazing! It's awesome that she can keep the ideas flowing. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!

  11. I wouldn't want to watch a live stream of criminals being executed. It sounds like it will be an exciting book though.

  13. I would maybe read this book but the YA thing puts me off-if there is a teen romance in it or YA tropes I'd give it a miss!

    1. Usually this author is pretty unique, not sticking with tropes, but there is probably a romance of some sort I'd guess. Thanks for visiting!
