The 100 (The Hundred, #1)

The 100
by Kass Morgan
Series: The Hundred #1
Publisher:  Little, Brown Books for Young Readers 
Release Date: September 3rd, 2013

In the future, humans live in city-like spaceships orbiting far above Earth's toxic atmosphere. No one knows when, or even if, the long-abandoned planet will be habitable again. But faced with dwindling resources and a growing populace, government leaders know they must reclaim their homeland... before it's too late.

Now, one hundred juvenile delinquents are being sent on a high-stakes mission to recolonize Earth. After a brutal crash landing, the teens arrive on a savagely beautiful planet they've only seen from space. Confronting the dangers of this rugged new world, they struggle to form a tentative community. But they're haunted by their past and uncertain about the future. To survive, they must learn to trust - and even love - again.

Why I'm Waiting...

I feel as if I haven't seen this book getting the type of buzz it should be. Hello, that cover?! It's pretty damn awesome. Plus, this book is being made into a television show for the CW! The show will be out in January, but Becca (who works for the CW Atlanta) was able to get a peek at the upfronts and she says it looks AMAZING! It bodes well for the book, right?! Hopefully. But now I'm dying to read this baby. It's a pre-order for sure.

Have you heard of this? What are you waiting on? Don't forget to leave you links in the comments!


  1. I know exactly what you mean. This book is clearly a good one and I don't see a lot of people going crazy about it. So jealous of Becca by the way!

  2. Holy crap, I had no idea this one was a book! I watched the CW show trailer and loved it, and I'm definitely going to watch it when it comes out early next year. I love the fact that the show is based on this book! I'm grateful to you for letting me find out about this, and I'm adding it to my TBR right now xD

    My WoW

  3. I hate that my tbr pile is suffering from carrying all these books, but I can't help it! Sorry, tbr pile, you just got another book to carry.. In all seriousness, you're right. The buzz around this one is almost non-existant. The more I look at the cover, the prettier it gets. AND I want to see the TV adaptuion Becca is so excited about ;-)

  4. I actually heard of this via you guys! It looks so good, it's on my TBR for sure. Awesome pick, girls! :D

  5. Wow, this looks really cool. Thank you so much for posting about it so I can add it to my Goodreads shelves and buy it as soon as it comes out! :)

  6. I cant wait to read this book. I recent saw The 100 Pilot Promo and it looks good.
    Here is My WOW

  7. I've never seen this book! That's a cool title! And the synopsis is intriguing. I'll have to look out for it. I hope you enjoy it when you get to read it! Hopefully you will soon :D

    Check out my WoW post!

  8. I just saw this last week for the first time, and I was completely enthralled. The best things about this book: The cover-it has a lot going on, in the best way possible. The title-it sounds epic and is perfect for a TV name. And sci-fi! The deer in the promo caught me off guard, loved it! Amazing WOW!

  9. I am excited for this book too. Great choice.

  10. Hehe, same as Megan, I heard about this awesometastic book through you guys when you were talking about books to movies. AND GAH that cover is simple and GORGEOUS! It kinda has the feel of that movie that's coming out "after earth" except here it's with teen delinquents and filled with romance :P Thank goodness it comes out in september *though thats a long time to wait too*

    -Great WoW pick Krista! It definitely should get more hype :)

  11. Oh wow! Thanks for putting this on my radar. The plot sounds promising.I agree, the cover looks awesome :D


  12. A book that gets adapted before its publication definitely makes you curious! If I end up liking the show I might checkout this book as well.

  13. That cover is awesomesauce! I can't believe the CW is already adapting it into a show, I've never even heard of it until right now. Must be one amazing book. Thanks for sharing! =)
