Waiting on Wednesday: Armada by Ernest Cline

"Waiting on" Wednesday

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

November 20th

Zack Lightman is daydreaming through another dull math class when the high-tech drop-ship lands in his school's courtyard-and when the men in the dark suits and sunglasses leap out of the ship and start calling his name, he's sure he's still dreaming.

As Zack soon discovers, the video game he's been playing obsessively for years isn't just a game; it's part of a massive, top-secret government training program, designed to teach gamers the skills they'll need to defend Earth from a possible alien invasion. And now…that invasion is coming.

Expected publication: July 2014


Basically, this is Ender's Game. However, since I loved that book I am super excited for this one! I haven't read Ready Player One, but I have heard many good things about this author's work.


  1. Sounds really good, thanks for sharing.

  2. Hahaha, okay, so I hadn't read this synopsis before. I just TBRed because I loved Cline's previous book, but this IS Ender's Game. I wonder what he'll do with that.

    1. Exactly. I'm sure people will take to this one better because there was a lot of controversy over Orson Scott Card and his beliefs, but as of right now this book pretty much seems like it will follow the same path as Ender's Game. I'm intrigued, but if he doesn't pull it off any differently I think I'll be pretty disappointed.
