Waiting on Wednesday – Day Four

March 25, 2015

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine to let us share our excitement for books coming out soon.

I absolutely loved The Three. The story was creepy, and the format was so original (told through snippets of blog posts, news stories, interviews, etc). When I heard there was another book coming, it immediately went to my “Must Read” list! And blurbs by Stephen King and Lauren Beukes? Yes, please, now.

Title: Day Four

Author: Sarah Lotz

Expected publication: June 16th, 2015

Publisher: Little, Brown and Company




The chilling follow-up to The Three, Sarah Lotz’s “hard to put down and vastly entertaining” debut (Stephen King).

Hundreds of pleasure-seekers stream aboard The Beautiful Dreamer cruise ship for five days of cut-price fun in the Caribbean sun. On the fourth day, disaster strikes: smoke roils out of the engine room, and the ship is stranded in the Gulf of Mexico. Soon supplies run low, a virus plagues the ship, and there are whispered rumors that the cabins on the lower decks are haunted by shadowy figures. Irritation escalates to panic, the crew loses control, factions form, and violent chaos erupts among the survivors.

When, at last, the ship is spotted drifting off the coast of Key West, the world’s press reports it empty. But the gloomy headlines may be covering up an even more disturbing reality.

DAY FOUR is a heart-racing tale from “a ferociously imaginative storyteller.”*
