Waiting on Wednesday #97: The Girl's Guide to the Apocalypse by Daphne Lamb


"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating.


This week the book I am waiting on is The Girl's Guide to the Apocalypse by Daphne Lamb. It's due out September 1, 2015 from Booktrope. 

Synopsis from Goodreads.com:

Welcome to the Apocalypse. Your forecast includes acid rain, roving gangs and misplaced priorities, in this comedic take on the end of the world as we know it, from debut author Daphne Lamb.

As a self-entitled, self-involved, and ill equipped millennial, Verdell probably wouldn’t have ranked very high on the list of those most likely to survive the end of the world, but here she is anyway. Add in travelling with her work addicted boss, her boyfriend who she has “meh” feelings for, and a handful of others who had no businesses surviving as long as they have, and things aren’t exactly going as planned. But despite threats of cannibalism, infected water supplies, and possibly even mutants, Verdell is willing to put in as little effort as she can get away with to survive.


Why am I waiting on this book? It's supposed to be a funny take on survival after the Apocalypse. I like the idea that instead of being all gung-ho about what she needs to do, she wants to put in as little effort as she can get away with and still survive. It makes it sound like this will be a different sort end-of-the-world-as-you-know-it book.
