Wishlist Wednesday #40

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 :)

 The 100 - Kass Morgan


In the future, humans live in city-like spaceships orbiting far above Earth's toxic atmosphere. No one knows when, or even if, the long-abandoned planet will be habitable again. But faced with dwindling resources and a growing populace, government leaders know they must reclaim their homeland... before it's too late.

Now, one hundred juvenile delinquents are being sent on a high-stakes mission to recolonize Earth. After a brutal crash landing, the teens arrive on a savagely beautiful planet they've only seen from space. Confronting the dangers of this rugged new world, they struggle to form a tentative community. But they're haunted by their past and uncertain about the future. To survive, they must learn to trust - and even love - again.


 I heard of this book a few months back and added it to my wishlist straight away. I love sci-fi and I'm intrigued at how Earth has become toxic and what happens to the one hundred people once they land on the planet. The reviews haven't been amazing but I'm not fazed as it sounds really exciting and I just love the sound of the whole story and concept. It comes out next month sometime so I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for it!


  1. I can't wait for The 100! It sounds so fantastic. I can't wait to read it. I'm really excited for the show as well. :b
