Synopsis
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. (Goodreads)
Why I'm Waiting
As always, I judge a book by its cover and if Not a Drop to Drink reads as beautifully as its cover looks, I will not be disappointed. Plus, the premise helps. That last line in the synopsis really grabbed my interest. A world not different than our own? How does this post-apocalyptic world compare to our reality? My curiosity is killing me and I'm excited to read this book when it's released!

So, what are you waiting for this week?!

  6. Although this is one I know I won't be reading, simply because I don't really dig the types of novels where people are surviving (they're great, but I never LOVE them somehow), I've heard this is fantastic, so I can't wait to see what you think. You might just persuade me to pick it up myself! ;)

    1. Hey, I'll take that as a challenge. :P If I love this book, I will do my best to convince you it's worth a read. But I know what you mean. Some survival novels just don't work out for me either.

  8. I always judge a book by its cover, too. ;) I wanted to read this one before I even knew what it was about! It sounds brilliant though - I just hope it doesn't disappoint. :)

    Great pick, Courtney!
