Waiting on Wednesday - Only Human

 Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.  I am linking up with Can't Wait Wednesday hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings this week.  

My Waiting on Wednesday pick is:

Only Human by Sylvain Neuvel
Series: Themis Files #3
Publisher: Del Ray Books
Publication Date: May 1, 2018
World War Z meets The Martian in the explosive follow-up to Sleeping Giants (“One of the most promising series kickoffs in recent memory”—NPR) and Waking Gods (“Pure, unadulterated literary escapism”—Kirkus Reviews).
In her childhood, Rose Franklin accidentally discovered a giant metal hand buried beneath the ground outside Deadwood, South Dakota. As an adult, Dr. Rose Franklin led the team that uncovered the rest of the body parts which together form Themis: a powerful robot of mysterious alien origin. She, along with linguist Vincent, pilot Kara, and the unnamed Interviewer, protected the Earth from geopolitical conflict and alien invasion alike. Now, after nearly ten years on another world, Rose returns to find her old alliances forfeit and the planet in shambles. And she must pick up the pieces of the Earth Defense Corps as her own friends turn against each other.


Pre-Order:  Amazon | BAM! | Barnes & Noble | IndieBound | Kobo 


Why Am I Waiting?
I have fallen in love with this series.  I read an early copy of the first book and originally thought it was good but not great.  I decided to listen the the audiobook of that same book this past summer and absolutely loved it.  I quickly read the second book and really enjoyed it as well.  I have even listened to the audio of first book a second time with my husband who also enjoyed it and we are planning to listen to the second book together very soon.

The last book left the characters in a very interesting situation and I can't wait to see what happens in Only Human.

What are you waiting for this week?

    1. I think that this is a series that really does need to be read in order since each book builds on events from the previous one.

  4. I haven't read Sleeping Giants, but I heard amazing things about it that I added it to my growing tbrlist. I really want to read it, but I'm waiting for it to be translated into Dutch. Or I just might buy it when I can't wait anymore.
