Waiting On Wednesday (This is Not a Test)

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Every Wednesday participants choose a book that they are "waiting on" or hasn't been released yet. This week I'm waiting for some end-of-the world stuff:

It’s the end of the world. Six students have taken cover in Cortege High but shelter is little comfort when the dead outside won’t stop pounding on the doors. One bite is all it takes to kill a person and bring them back as a monstrous version of their former self. To Sloane Price, that doesn’t sound so bad. Six months ago, her world collapsed and since then, she’s failed to find a reason to keep going. Now seems like the perfect time to give up. As Sloane eagerly waits for the barricades to fall, she’s forced to witness the apocalypse through the eyes of five people who actually wantto live. But as the days crawl by, the motivations for survival change in startling ways and soon the group’s fate is determined less and less by what’s happening outside and more and more by the unpredictable and violent bids for life—and death—inside. When everything is gone, what do you hold on to? --Goodreads
End of the world!  Zombies!  This book sounds great to me.  So you have a character who is ready to Turn and gets to watch the other five kids who want to keep living.  I want to read this book so much.  And what's with that cover.  It is really interesting; like what is her face showing that she won't show,  And the blood spatters in the corner definitely shows how it is a zombie book.  Yep, this is a book for me!  

What are you waiting for, this fine Wednesday?
