Waiting on Wednesday (76)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine 
and spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. 

My pick this week:

Mira Grant
Series: Parasitism #1
Genre: Adult Sci-Fi Thriller
Publication date: November 5th 2013
by Orbit 

A decade in the future, humanity thrives in the absence of sickness and disease.

We owe our good health to a humble parasite - a genetically engineered tapeworm developed by the pioneering SymboGen Corporation. When implanted, the tapeworm protects us from illness, boosts our immune system - even secretes designer drugs. It's been successful beyond the scientists' wildest dreams. Now, years on, almost every human being has a SymboGen tapeworm living within them.

But these parasites are getting restless. They want their own lives... and will do anything to get them.

I am a HUGE fan of Mira Grant's Newsflesh series. One of the best and most realistic and well researched zombie series out there hands down. She's a fantastic writer and even if I would be interested by this synopsis alone, seeing her name on it just turned this upcoming release a million times more exciting!

What are you waiting on, this Wednesday?
