Not YA this week, but these two books have great premises!

Immobility by Brian Evenson

On Goodreads :

When you open your eyes things already seem to be happening without you. You don’t know who you are and you don’t remember where you’ve been. You know the world has changed, that a catastrophe has destroyed what used to exist before, but you can’t remember exactly what did exist before. And you’re paralyzed from the waist down apparently, but you don’t remember that either.
A man claiming to be your friend tells you your services are required. Something crucial has been stolen, but what he tells you about it doesn’t quite add up. You’ve got to get it back or something bad is going to happen. And you’ve got to get it back fast, so they can freeze you again before your own time runs out.
Before you know it, you’re being carried through a ruined landscape on the backs of two men in hazard suits who don’t seem anything like you at all, heading toward something you don’t understand that may well end up being the death of you.

White Horse by Alex Adams

On Goodreads :

Thirty-year-old Zoe leads an ordinary life until the end of the world arrives. She is cleaning cages and floors at Pope Pharmaceuticals when the President of the United States announces that human beings are no longer a viable species. When Zoe realizes that everyone she loves is disappearing, she starts running. Scared and alone in a shockingly changed world, she embarks on a remarkable journey of survival and redemption. Along the way, Zoe comes to see that humans are not defined by their genetic code, but rather by their actions and choices. White Horse offers hope for a broken world, where love can lead to the most unexpected places.

    I’ve been reading great reviews of White Horse – I hope you get it soon.

    I saw White Horse on Shelf Awareness and I thought meh. Then I read more about the author and her favorite things and I thought YES PLEASE. Surely an author that is that awesome writes a book that is equally awesome.

    White Horse sounds good but I’m sorta confused by the cover.

    White Horse does look good, doesn’t it?! I would love to get my hands on it as well! 🙂
