Wishlist Wednesday #28

Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Dani over @Pen to Paper and is a great way of showing off the books that we are dying to get our hands on :)

 Ashes (Ashes Trilogy #1) - Isla J. Bick

It could happen tomorrow . . .
An electromagnetic pulse flashes across the sky, destroying every electronic device, wiping out every computerized system, and killing billions.
Alex hiked into the woods to say good-bye to her dead parents and her personal demons. Now desperate to find out what happened after the pulse crushes her to the ground, Alex meets up with Tom—a young soldier—and Ellie, a girl whose grandfather was killed by the EMP.

For this improvised family and the others who are spared, it’s now a question of who can be trusted and who is no longer human.

Author Ilsa J. Bick crafts a terrifying and thrilling novel about a world that could be ours at any moment, where those left standing must learn what it means not just to survive, but to live amidst the devastation. 


I've seen this book mentioned a few times but didn't realise that it was a dystopian/post apocalyptic book. It sounds so good and really interesting with the destruction of computers and electricity. It sounds a bit creep too with some things I've heard about it so I definitely need to get this! 


  1. I haven't heard of this one yet, but it sounds good! I'm definitely adding it to my TBR pile! Great choice!

  2. I've had the chance to read this book and it is good. I was surprised to find it was a Dystopian too because of the cover. :) Hope you enjoy it
