Waiting On Wednesday #7: The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness

6:33 AM

Title:  The Rest of Us Just Live Here
Author: Patrick Ness
Publisher: Walker Books
Publication date: October 6th 2015


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.

My thoughts:

I have only read More Than This by Patrick Ness and even though I will read his Chaos Walking trilogy eventually, MTT was just enough proof of his undeniable talent. One book was sufficient enough for me to fall in love with his writing. I am dying to read this book. Looking at that release date gives me something reminiscent of a mini heart attack.

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


  1. Haven't heard of this one. Definitely need to add it to my tbr :)

  2. Yes! Check out his other books as well. Amazing author! :)
