Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking The Spine where you can spotlight a book that you’re giddy with excitement to read so that other people can be giddy with excitement too :)
As I run a book and film blog, I do this meme including books and films that I am waiting on. This week I have two books for your viewing pleasure and one film. Hope that you like them too! :D
So, I’ve been very naughty and haven’t participated in this meme for a long time, but I’m hoping to do it more regularly again! Yay!

Robie is an experienced traveler. She’s taken the flight from Honolulu to the Midway Atoll, a group of Pacific islands where her parents live, many times. When she has to get to Midway in a hurry after a visit with her aunt in Hawaii, she gets on the next cargo flight at the last minute. She knows the pilot, but on this flight, there’s a new co-pilot named Max. All systems are go until a storm hits during the flight. The only passenger, Robie doesn’t panic until the engine suddenly cuts out and Max shouts at her to put on a life jacket. They are over miles of Pacific Ocean. She sees Max struggle with a raft.
And then… she’s in the water. Fighting for her life. Max pulls her onto the raft, and that’s when the real terror begins. They have no water. Their only food is a bag of Skittles. There are sharks. There is an island. But there’s no sign of help on the way.
Why?: Um, hello? It sounds simply amazing! The cover really drew me in and the synopsis sealed the deal. I saw it a while back but figured it was about time it got some acknowledgement on the blog! I am so intrigued by the story, will they get stranded on the island? How will they save themselves? Yeap… definitely intrigued!

The Five-Year Engagement Trailer
Why?: I basically love Jason Segal and everything that he is in but I also just think that this film is my kind of humour. It looks right up my street and I just can’t wait to go and see it!
