A while back I was given the opportunity to take part in an interview with Rick Yancey, author of the 5th Wave series. I’m part of the Spinebreakers programme with Penguin UK so I was invited to his UK publicity event but beforehand, the Spinebreakers got to meet him and ask a few questions.
I look horribly awkward and weird in this video and I still had braces (cry), but who cares, I got to meet Rick Yancey!! Sadly we only got to ask one question each, but the answers are all very interesting so give it a watch! Can you guess which one is me?
I also got a free signed copy of The 5th Wave for coming along to his event which is AWESOME.
If you haven’t had the chance to read The 5th Wave yet, perhaps this will entice you:
After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one.
Now, it’s the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth’s last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie’s only hope for rescuing her brother-or even saving herself. But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up.
