TBR Thursday

I was thinking of doing a series of posts about books that I have already, or have already been released, that I really want to read. Sort of like the Waiting on Wednesday posts, but about already-out books.

I found the TBR Thursday meme at Book Blather and realized it was just what I was going for.

Not A Drop To DrinkThis week’s pick is Not A Drop To Drink, by Mindy McGinnis.

From Goodreads:

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.

I have heard a lot of really good things about this book from fellow bloggers, and I’m still not tired of dystopian YA stories, so this one is high on my TBR list!
