THE INFINITE SEA by Rick Yancey Giveaway #theinfinitesea @penguinteen


Do you want to win a signed copy of The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey?

We really enjoyed book one in the 5th Wave series, and can’t wait to read this next installment!

For your chance to win a copy of the Infinite Sea by Ricky Yaney, all you need to do is answer this question via the Rafflecopter below:

What 5 items would you like to have in the event of an apocalypse?

As for me, I’m assuming that my family is safe and sound with me, so the five things I’d like to have are (probably not practical but still…) :

1 – Sensible shoes/boots (you can’t go very far if your feet get all battered up)

2 – A bag full of toiletries like toothbrush and toothpaste, shampoo, antibacterial soap, etc.

3 – A deck of cards (to pass the time with 2 kids and the hubs)

4 – A first aid kit which includes band-aides, alcoholic wipes, etc.

5 – A weapon of some sort (perhaps a shovel which can act as both mayhap?)

(As a side note, I asked the hubs what he would bring, and his was boring, but yes,
very much practical)

What would you bring?  Be sure to enter your answer via the Rafflecopter,
and good luck!


The riveting follow-up to the New York Times bestselling The 5th Wave, hailed by Justin Cronin as “wildly entertaining.”

How do you rid the Earth of seven billion humans? Rid the humans of their humanity.

Surviving the first four waves was nearly impossible. Now Cassie Sullivan finds herself in a new world, a world in which the fundamental trust that binds us together is gone. As the 5th Wave rolls across the landscape, Cassie, Ben, and Ringer are forced to confront the Others’ ultimate goal: the extermination of the human race.

Cassie and her friends haven’t seen the depths to which the Others will sink, nor have the Others seen the heights to which humanity will rise, in the ultimate battle between life and death, hope and despair, love and hate.
