“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where bloggers can showcase books that we are eagerly waiting for.
This week I want to highlight Consider (The Holo Series #1) by Kristy Acevedo.
Expected Publication: April 19th 2016 by Jolly Fish Press
As if Alexandra Lucas’ anxiety disorder isn’t enough, mysterious holograms suddenly appear from the sky, heralding the end of the world. They bring an ultimatum: heed the warning and step through a portal-like vertex to safety, or stay and be destroyed by a comet they say is on a collision course with Earth. How’s that for senior year stress?
The holograms, claiming to be humans from the future, bring the promise of safety. But without the ability to verify their story, Alex is forced to consider what is best for her friends, her family, and herself.
To stay or to go. A decision must be made.With the deadline of the holograms’ prophecy fast approaching, Alex feels as though she is living on a ticking time bomb, until she discovers it is much, much worse.
Why I’m Waiting
“Consider. Save your people. Save yourself before it is too late.”
This is the message the mysterious holograms deliver to the humans of present-day Earth. But can they or should they be trusted? I’m dying to find out because after reading the first chapter of Consider (available in the author’s website) I am genuinely hyped! The writing is concise and fast-paced and the plot looks fascinating. Any story that deals with alternate dimensions or histories gets my immediate attention. Acevedo is yet another debut novelist I’m thrilled to follow this year.
