Waiting On Wednesday #8!!

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted at Breaking The Spine  that spotlights those can't-wait-to-get-my-hands-on-them books that we are eagerly awaiting!

This week the book I'm quite dying to read is Not A Drop To Drink by Mindy McGinnis!



Goodreads summary:


"Regret was for people with nothing to defend, people who had no water.

Lynn knows every threat to her pond: drought, a snowless winter, coyotes, and, most importantly, people looking for a drink. She makes sure anyone who comes near the pond leaves thirsty, or doesn't leave at all.

Confident in her own abilities, Lynn has no use for the world beyond the nearby fields and forest. Having a life means dedicating it to survival, and the constant work of gathering wood and water. Having a pond requires the fortitude to protect it, something Mother taught her well during their quiet hours on the rooftop, rifles in hand.

But wisps of smoke on the horizon mean one thing: strangers. The mysterious footprints by the pond, nighttime threats, and gunshots make it all too clear Lynn has exactly what they want, and they won’t stop until they get it….

With evocative, spare language and incredible drama, danger, and romance, debut author Mindy McGinnis depicts one girl’s journey in a barren world not so different than our own."



Why am I eagerly awaiting Not A Drop To Drink? Well, since the moment I saw the cover with that title and then read the summary... It just captured my attention! So much that I decided to preorder it on my Kindle app there and then! And since I've been reading so many stellar reviews for this one, I'm even more excited to finally get to read it next week!!

What are you all (im)patiently waiting to read?
