More Than This
by Patrick Ness

Goodreads synopsis:
A boy called Seth drowns, desperate and alone in his final moments, losing his life as the pounding sea claims him. But then he wakes. He is naked, thirsty, starving. But alive. How is that possible? He remembers dying, his bones breaking, his skull dashed upon the rocks. So how is he is here? And where is this place? It looks like the suburban English town where he lived as a child, before an unthinkable tragedy happened and his family moved to America. But the neighbourhood around his old house is overgrown, covered in dust and completely abandoned. What's going on? And why is it that whenever he closes his eyes, he falls prey to vivid, agonizing memories that seem more real than the world around him? Seth begins a search for answers, hoping that he might not be alone, that this might not be the hell he fears it to be, that there might be more than just this...

I have only read one book by Patrick Ness so far, and that was A Monster Calls ... I am yet to read his critically acclaimed Chaos Walking trilogy. However, just from reading the smaller of his current books, I am already excited about the release of his latest novel, which will be released in the UK on September 5th. It sounds like a really mysterious and unique read, and I can't wait to get stuck into it!

What's on your wishlist this week? Let us know in the comments below, or link to your own Wishlist Wednesday post in the Linky :)

Very interesting story but doesn't really sound like my cup of tea. Hope you get it soon.

This sounds so intriguing! I'll definitely be adding this one to my wishlist. I still need to read A Monster Calls which also looks amazing!

Also yay for Wishlist Wednesday no. 100! :)
