Waiting on Wednesday (#8)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, where we have the chance to share what upcoming releases we are on the edge of our seats in anticipation for.

This week the book I am waiting on is The Power of Six by Pittacus Lore.  Here is the goodreads description:  
I've seen him on the news. Followed the stories about what happened in Ohio. John Smith, out there, on the run. To the world, he's a mystery. But to me . . . he's one of us.

Nine of us came here, but sometimes I wonder if time has changed us—if we all still believe in our mission. How can I know? There are six of us left. We're hiding, blending in, avoiding contact with one another . . . but our Legacies are developing, and soon we'll be equipped to fight. Is John Number Four, and is his appearance the sign I've been waiting for? And what about Number Five and Six? Could one of them be the raven-haired girl with the stormy eyes from my dreams? The girl with powers that are beyond anything I could ever imagine? The girl who may be strong enough to bring the six of us together?

They caught Number One in Malaysia.
Number Two in England.
And Number Three in Kenya.
They tried to catch Number Four in Ohio—and failed.

I am Number Seven. One of six still alive.

And I'm ready to fight

I am curious if this book will be a movie like the first book in the series, I am number four.  I thought that it was a really good movie. 


  1. Haven't read this series, but keep hearing a lot of good things about it!

    Here's my WoW

    Have a GREAT day and Happy Reading!

  2. Great pick! I liked I am Number Four - both the book and movie - so I'm looking forward to this one too. I hope they do make a movie of it!

  3. I saw the movie and I've been wondering if they were going to do a sequel--This looks really good!!! :)


  4. I'm waiting for this one as well- I liked the first book, but I actually liked the film a bit better.
