Waiting On Wednesday (92)

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event that
spotlights upcoming releases that I’m really
looking forward to. Waiting On Wednesday
is the creation of Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This week’s “can’t-wait-to-read” selection is:

Contagion #1
Erin Bowman
HarperTeen, July 2018
Science Fiction, Horror, Young Adult

From the publisher—

After receiving a distress call from a drill team on a distant planet, a skeleton crew is sent into deep space to perform a standard search-and-rescue mission.

When they arrive, they find the planet littered with the remains of the project—including its members’ dead bodies. As they try to piece together what could have possibly decimated an entire project, they discover that some things are best left buried—and some monsters are only too ready to awaken.

Why am I waiting so eagerly? I’m enticed, first of all, by the very paucity of the synopsis, making me think of the vast unknown that is space. I can’t even tell who the characters are (although the publisher is HarperTeen so I assume there’s at least one young adult) and certainly don’t have any idea what they might find at the end of their trip. What I do know is this is almost certainly going to be a thriller and adventure wrapped up in some mystery so I expect a humdinger and I can’t wait!
