Waiting on Wednesday: Sleeping Beauties by Stephen and Owen King

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Sleeping Beauties by Stephen King & Owen King

Publication date: 09/26/2017
Publisher: Scribner
In this spectacular father-son collaboration, Stephen King and Owen King tell the highest of high-stakes stories: what might happen if women disappeared from the world of men?

In a future so real and near it might be now, something happens when women go to sleep; they become shrouded in a cocoon-like gauze. If they are awakened, if the gauze wrapping their bodies is disturbed or violated, the women become feral and spectacularly violent; and while they sleep they go to another place. The men of our world are abandoned, left to their increasingly primal devices. One woman, however, the mysterious Evie, is immune to the blessing or curse of the sleeping disease. Is Evie a medical anomaly to be studied, or is she a demon who must be slain? Set in a small Appalachian town whose primary employer is a women’s prison, Sleeping Beauties is wildly provocative and gloriously absorbing.
What happens when women disappear from the world of men?! Count me in for this one! The premise sounds so good.

So this is my pick. What are you waiting for?

I'm a big fan of Renee's books and I'm just as excited to read this one.

Reading Slump...

So it's going on two weeks now where I've been bouncing from book to book and I've had no luck of finding something that keeps my attention. I love all genres and normally when I experience a book slump, I will jump to a completely different genre. I've been reading a lot of contemporary romance books while I've been waiting on some highly anticipated YA books and I've had no luck so I need your help.

I really need some good recommendations. Like I said earlier, I'll read just about any genre except self-help and autobiographies (I do read these but I'm looking to be entertained). My favorite of all of the genres are fantasy, sci-fi, and dystopian.

Now that you know what I like, what do you do when you're in a book slump? If you could recommend your favorite read so far this year, what would it be and why?
