Can’t Wait Wednesday #39: #murdertrending by Gretchen McNeil

February 7, 2018 Uncategorized 30

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings to spotlight
and talk about the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read.
Generally they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on
Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine.  This week I’m featuring a book by one of my favorite authors.  It’s a standalone, YA futuristic murder mystery story.  Here is the blurb from Goodreads:


WELCOME TO THE NEAR FUTURE, where good and honest 8/18 citizens can enjoy watching the executions of society’s most infamous convicted felons, streaming live on The Postman app from the suburbanized prison island Alcatraz 2.0.

When eighteen-year-old Dee Guerrera wakes up in a haze, lying on the ground of a dimly lit warehouse, she realizes she’s about to be the next victim of the app. Knowing hardened criminals are getting a taste of their own medicine in this place is one thing, but Dee refuses to roll over and die for a heinous crime she didn’t commit. Can Dee and her newly formed posse, the Death Row Breakfast Club, prove she’s innocent before she ends up wrongfully murdered for the world to see? Or will The Postman’s cast of executioners kill them off one by one?

What do you think?  Does it sound good to you?  Kinda reminds me of that movie Minority Report.  Have you read anything by this author?  I’ve read almost all of her other books, and they all grab me and keep me hostage when I pick them up, I can’t put them down!  What book are you eagerly awaiting this week?

    First of all, that cover – ha! And a 'Death Row Breakfast Club'? How funny! Or maybe scary. Will watch for this one.

    I j ust saw this a few weeks back and added to my TBR. I've read TEN b y her and the two Get Even books and liked them mostly, so I'll definitely be getting this one. Plus a Death Row Breakfast Club? I'm in!!!

    I don't think I've read any of Gretchen McNeil's books, but I feel like she has a new one published every couple of months! It's kind of amazing! It's awesome that she can keep the ideas flowing. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!

    Have a wonderful day, Lisa. =)

      Hmm, I don't think she has them that often. It's been a while since her last one. That's why I'm so excited for this one. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!

    I wouldn't want to watch a live stream of criminals being executed. It sounds like it will be an exciting book though.

    Sounds interesting. Hope you enjoy it! Sorry to respond so late, but my internet has been either spotty or down for the last week. Thanks for coming by my Wednesday post.
