Partials by Dan Wells, come READ-A-LONG with US!!!

Hi everyone! 
Come join Cass of Books With Cass and myself on our very first... 

The read-a-long starts July 30th!
We will have weekly Sunday discussions - we will chat up to a certain chapter in the book, and provide no spoilers to the end until the end of the read-a-long!
There will be a giveaway, too!!!
We will be giving away the book to our next read-a-long...
The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa 

So, why Partials by Dan Wells?!
So many of us have it and haven't read it yet, or want to read it, but keep putting it off!
And quite possibly there are a few of you who would love to re-read it with us, too!
So why not encourage each other to finally jump into it :)
I've been wanting to read it ever since I received my copy - it takes place on Long Island!!! That's where I live! and I cannot wait to see what kind of role the 'island' will have in the story. 

Here's a little bit more about Partials...
"Humanity is all but extinguished after a war with partials—engineered organic beings identical to humans—has decimated the world’s population. Reduced to only tens of thousands by a weaponized virus to which only a fraction of humanity is immune, the survivors in North America have huddled together on Long Island. The threat of the partials is still imminent, but, worse, no baby has been born immune to the disease in over a decade. Humanity’s time is running out.

When sixteen-year-old Kira learns of her best friend’s pregnancy, she’s determined to find a solution. Then one rash decision forces Kira to flee her community with the unlikeliest of allies. As she tries desperately to save what is left of her race, she discovers that the survival of both humans and partials rests in her attempts to answer questions of the war’s origin that she never knew to ask.

Combining the fast-paced action of The Hunger Games with the provocative themes of Battlestar GalacticaPartials is a pulse-pounding journey into a world where the very concept of what it means to be human is in question—one where our sense of humanity is both our greatest liability, and our only hope for survival."
