Waiting on Wednesday (21) - The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness

Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness
Publisher: Walker Books
Publication Date: August 27th 2015 

Goodreads summary:
What if you aren’t the Chosen One?

The one who’s supposed to fight the zombies, or the soul-eating ghosts, or whatever the heck this new thing is, with the blue lights and the death?

What if you’re like Mikey? Who just wants to graduate and go to prom and maybe finally work up the courage to ask Henna out before someone goes and blows up the high school. Again.

Because sometimes there are problems bigger than this week’s end of the world, and sometimes you just have to find the extraordinary in your ordinary life.

Even if your best friend is worshiped by mountain lions.

Award-winning writer Patrick Ness’s bold and irreverent novel powerfully reminds us that there are many different types of remarkable.

Why The Rest of Us ?
1. Patrick Ness writes amazing books.
2. This book sounds amazing.
3. Hopefully I will love this book since amazing + amazing seems to equal this book.

I have thought so MUCH about the the very concept that this book is based on. What if a book didn't evolve around the so called "Chosen One"? Why not just an ordinary character? I'm so ecstatic that there's ACTUALLY  a book about this and I can't wait to read it.    


  1. Very cool concept from Patrick Ness - even us ordinary folk can be the protagonist! My WOW here:

  2. After being in the hospital with a 103 flu, I'm behind on this meme so hope you don't mind I'm commenting nearly a week late.

    This book sounds incredible. Thanks for sharing.
