Wishing & Waiting on Wednesday: Symbiont

There’s nothing like a Wednesday for thinking about the books we want to read! My Wishing & Waiting on Wednesday post is linking up with two fabulous book memes, Wishlist Wednesday (hosted by Pen to Paper) and Waiting on Wednesday (hosted by Breaking the Spine).

My most wished-for book this week is:

Symbiont (Parasitology, #2)

Symbiont by Mira Grant
(to be released November 25, 2014)

Synopsis via Goodreads:



The SymboGen designed tapeworms were created to relieve humanity of disease and sickness. But the implants in the majority of the world’s population began attacking their hosts turning them into a ravenous horde.

Now those who do not appear to be afflicted are being gathered for quarantine as panic spreads, but Sal and her companions must discover how the tapeworms are taking over their hosts, what their eventual goal is, and how they can be stopped.

Mira Grant’s Parasite is one of the grossest books I’ve read in a long time… and I loved it. (You can see my review here.) I can’t wait to read the sequel, even though I know the ickiness factor will be sky-high. Tapeworms! Shudder.

  2. Yes, definitely looking forward to this one! With Parasite I broke my “wait for the series to be finished” rule. (Actually I’m getting worse and worse about following that rule, even though I’m always happier when I can binge-read a series.)
