The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey Book Review

SYNOPSIS: After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one.
Now, it’s the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth’s last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie’s only hope for rescuing her brother—or even saving herself. But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up.

 This was definitely one of my favorites of this year so far. The way the story is told in multiple POVs was very interesting but my favorite POV was the main character Cassie's. I loved her personality so much.She was sarcastic ,funny and just overall such a strong bold female lead. I also loved her relationship with Sammy and Bear!
Oh, and Evan too!
I was less interested in Zombie's POV but i still loved him anyway.

I was a little hesitant at first because i didn't know if it would be realistic enough for my liking but it was perfect! Rick Yancey made the story seem soooo realistic and something that could happen.

AHHH, The ending was soooo action-packed and had me glued to the book. I am extremely excited for the next book in the series and i hope it will be as good as this one and if not, better!

 Fans of Sci-fi alien novels would love The 5th Wave and even if you aren't a Sci-fi fan i would really give this book a chance.  You may be surprised!

I would give this book a 5/5 stars for it's amazing story line, bold characters and page-turning moments.

My favorite quote from the book:
“But if I'm it, the last of my kind, the last page of human history, like hell I'm going to let the story end this way. I may be the last one, but I am the one still standing. I am the one turning to face the faceless hunter in the woods on an abandoned highway. I am the one not running but facing. Because if I am the last one, then I am humanity. And if this is humanity's last war, then I am the battlefield.”
