Book Review: The Fifth Wave by Rick Yancey

Funny thing. Probably eight or so months ago (maybe more?), my friend gave me this thick book about aliens and told me I would enjoy it. I wasn't really giving myself time to read at that point, so I threw it in the back seat of my car and it sat there for several months. Then earlier this year, when I made it a point to start reading again, I picked it up and took it in the house. I got to looking at it and realized it the alien movie that was coming out soon, and figured I should read it before the movie's release.
I actually really enjoy alien-related movies and television shows (Roswell, The X-Files), but I was truly surprised by how much I like the book. I fell in love with it pretty quickly, and couldn't put it down. I love the way the book is narrated through a few different viewpoints, so as you read you are discovering more and more about what's happening. So while each section is told from one of the character's point-of-views, you as the reader become omniscient because you're finding out all the truths.
As soon as I finished the book, I needed the second one, The Infinite Sea. I posted on Facebook asking friends if they had it, and when I woke the next morning and had no replies, I immediately hoped on Amazon and ordered it. (As of now, I'm still waiting for it.) The third book just came out this month, and I can't wait to devour it as well!

Have you read the trilogy? What were your thoughts?
