Sony Pictures, the studio that’s been actively working on The 5th Wave Movie, is getting ready for the film’s release next year by hosting a summer read-along! (How cool is that?!)
The read-along is the perfect opportunity for us fans to re-read the book before the movie hits theaters, that way it’s fresh in our minds when we see it on the screen! It’s also a great chance for us to share our love of the series with our family and
cats friends! What better way to get excited for the movie than sharing that excitement with the people you love? (You know, before they all die in… an alien invasion… or something like that.)
The read-along is being hosted by popular eReading site, Wattpad. The first 100 pages went up online FOR FREE yesterday morning! So if your friends are hesitant about buying the book, they have a chance to read the beginning for free! Of course, you might not see them much after you introduce them to the book because they’ll be stuck in a reading coma once they start. Like you were (or might still be).
The coolest part of the summer read-along is that Wattpad and Sony will be hosting book chats with Rick Yancey on Facebook and Twitter. According to their site, we should “stay tuned for details about a conversation with author Rick Yancey about the book!” We’ve been told that this and other possible book chats will be taking place starting the week of July 14th.
We’ll be keeping you up to date with more details about the read-along and book chats as we get more info, so check back soon!
