Waiting on Wednesday: The Thousandth Floor

Wednesday, 27 July 2016

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where the participants tell their readers about an upcoming release they are waiting to read. This week I've picked The Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGee.

Welcome to Manhattan, 2118. A thousand-storey tower stretching into the sky. A glittering vision of the future, where anything is possible – if you want it enough. A hundred years in the future, New York's elite of the super-tower lie, backstab and betray each other to find their place at the top of the world. Everyone wants something… and everyone has something to lose.As the privileged inhabitants of the upper floors recklessly navigate the successes and pitfalls of the luxury life, forbidden desires are indulged and carefree lives teeter on the brink of catastrophe. Whilst lower-floor workers are tempted by a world – and unexpected romance – dangling just out of reach. And on the thousandth floor is Avery Fuller, the girl genetically designed to be perfect. The girl who seems to have it all – yet is tormented by the one thing she can never have.So when a young woman falls from the top of the supertower, her death is the culmination of a scandal that has ensnared the top-floor elite and bottom-floor. But who plummeted from the roof? And what dark secrets led to her fall?Friends will be betrayed and enemies forged as promises are broken. When you're this high up, there's nowhere to go but down…

Now this sounds like the type of book I love - futuristic and with an edgy twist, I'm definitely looking forward to seeing what mystery this book holds.

Releasing 31st August 2016


  1. I have never seen this cover before! I don't think I like it as much as the original/placeholder one that was on GR for ages, but it's certainly alluring. I've been hearing so many good things about this book so hopefully, you'll love it too. Happy reading!

    1. I agree - the other cover looks really nice too. I love the premise of this one, hopefully it lives up to the expectations and we both enjoy it :)
