Can't Wait Wednesday


Can't Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at http://www.wishfulendings.com/ to spotlight and discuss books we're excited about but haven't read, which may not even be released yet. 

NB: I don't follow or leave comments on blogs run by Google Plus, or DISQUS as I refuse to join something just to leave comments, and I won't allow them to follow new people, update my profile or post tweets 'on my behalf'. I won't comment on any blog that makes me sign in using another account.  

This week, James Hunt!


What happens when all means of transportation and communication suddenly vanish? What happens when you can’t call for help? What happens when the only person you can rely on is yourself? Captain Kate Hillman is about to discover those answers after an EMP sends New York City, and it’s nine million residents, back into the stone age.

I love anything to do with an EMP so of course I'm going to want to read it. I liked a previous apocalypse series by the author so I'll try this when time allows. It was published on September 17th so it is there to be grabbed!.

  10. Oh, I love apocalypse/survival stories, especially when they're about the breakdown of civilization. I don't think I've read too many EMP stories, I should do some research and find some more to check out :)

    1. Oh EMPS are a great disaster to read about! You don't realise how much this would cripple a country until you see how things fall apart after one.

  11. Ooh an EMP and back to the stone age? Can you imagine anywhere WORSE to be than NYC or an other big city? Packed like sardines and everyone goes haywire. Better have weapons suckers!!!

    1. I would not want to be in a big city, that's for sure! Living where I am, it wouldn't be great I admit! I so need that prepper house in the country...
