Book I Covet: After the End (After the End #1) by Amy Plum

I had After the End scheduled as my WoW pick but I don't actually need to wait to read it since I was able to download it via Edelweiss on Monday >> EEEeeppp!! << but I'm going to feature it anyway because it sounds very awesome and the cover is simply GORGEOUS.

She’s searching for answers to her past. They’re hunting her to save their future.

World War III has left the world ravaged by nuclear radiation. A lucky few escaped to the Alaskan wilderness. They've survived for the last thirty years by living off the land, being one with nature, and hiding from whoever else might still be out there.

At least, this is what Juneau has been told her entire life.

When Juneau returns from a hunting trip to discover that everyone in her clan has vanished, she sets off to find them. Leaving the boundaries of their land for the very first time, she learns something horrifying: There never was a war. Cities were never destroyed. The world is intact. Everything was a lie.

Now Juneau is adrift in a modern-day world she never knew existed. But while she's trying to find a way to rescue her friends and family, someone else is looking for her. Someone who knows the extraordinary truth about the secrets of her past.

After the End will be released on May 6, 2014. Click on the cover to go to the book's Goodreads page.

What book(s) do you "covet" this week?
Leave us a comment with a link so we can check your WoW of the week too.

"Books I Covet" is a weekly or bi-weekly blog post series we do here on Wednesdays. It will feature books we are very excited about reading and plan on buying/borrowing in the near future. It is basically the "Waiting On" meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine, but we just like the title "books we covet" better. We will include the books' blurb, cover art, and/or release date if they're available. 


  1. I just got this from edelweiss and I'm really excited to check it out :) I've been really wanting to check out the author. Great pick!

  2. It actually sounds like the book I'm reading at the moment, The Man Who Watched The World End. I like these dystopia books that are more 'realistic'. Thanks for sharing!

    Here's my WOW this week.

  3. I'm still int he Revenants somewhere, but I like Amy Plums books so far. Pretty sure this one will be good as well. Nice pick, and have fun reading it pre-release. ;)
