Title: The Hunt (The Hunt #1)

Author: Andrew Fukuda

Publication: May 8th, 2012

Add: GoodReads | Amazon

Description:  Don’t Sweat. Don’t Laugh. Don’t draw attention to yourself. And most of all, whatever you do, do not fall in love with one of them.

Gene is different from everyone else around him. He can’t run with lightning speed, sunlight doesn’t hurt him and he doesn’t have an unquenchable lust for blood. Gene is a human, and he knows the rules. Keep the truth a secret. It’s the only way to stay alive in a world of night—a world where humans are considered a delicacy and hunted for their blood.

When he’s chosen for a once in a lifetime opportunity to hunt the last remaining humans, Gene’s carefully constructed life begins to crumble around him. He’s thrust into the path of a girl who makes him feel things he never thought possible—and into a ruthless pack of hunters whose suspicions about his true nature are growing. Now that Gene has finally found something worth fighting for, his need to survive is stronger than ever—but is it worth the cost of his humanity?

Via GoodReads.

Why I'm Waiting: A dystopian world run by vampires? I can't help but think of The Immortal Rules, which I loved. And The Hunt has its own fun twists as well. A male main character for one thing, something not very common in our beloved YA genre. And while he's pretending to be a vampire, he is chosen to help in the hunt for the remaining humans. It's like a delicious mix of The Hunger Games and The Immortal Rules or something!

Not only does The Hunt sound good, but it has high ratings on GoodReads as well - an average 3.95 to be exact. A Cupcake and a Latte says "Incredible action, skin-crawling suspense, and heart racing romance is what readers will find in Andrew Fukuda's The Hunt!" Check, check, and check! This book meets all of the requirements to be one of my favorite books. Now we just have to wait until May 8th..

What are you guys waiting to read?

sound good, hope you enjoy it when you put your hand on it :)

Shan @ Teatime Books said...

I definitely agree with the point made about a male as a main character, those are particularly 'rare' in YA books, especially dystopian/paranormal novels! Now I'm waiting for this one too! Hahaha (:

Linny said...

Thanks Christy! Too bad we have to wait so long for it. :( And I checked out your WoW!

Linny said...

No problem Meg! :D And I'm glad to hear it was good, can't wait to get to read it myself!

Linny said...

Thanks Lilly and I hope so too! Sometimes I get really excited about a book and it ends up being a dud, which is never fun.

Linny said...

Glad to hear you think this one sounds interesting too! I guess we're stuck waiting together for this one since it doesn't come out until May.. At least that's not too long to wait. :)

NatasaLikes said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog! :) This one's been on my TBR for ages, I can't wait till it comes out.

Linny said...

No problem Natasa! And I definitely can't wait either, less than three weeks to go though! :D

I Heart YA Books said...

Linny said...

Thanks Debbie! And I'm glad to hear you liked it! I'll be honest, I'm kind of wary when it comes to male MCs, so it's good to know that he's great. :)

Linny said...

Unfortunately, this wasn't a review but only a Waiting on Wednesday. I think it will turn out to be a great read though.

Carrie at In the Hammock Blog said...

This looks really good, the cover reminds me of another dystopian out there but i can't think of the name of it. Thanks for stopping by, i'm a new follower!

Linny said...

Thanks for following, I appreciate it! :)
And I thought so too! Something less hyped but still sounded good... can't think of it. Hmm.
