Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking The Spine, where you can spotlight an upcoming release that you're eagerly anticipating!

This week I'm waiting on:

Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld
Releases on: September 23rd, 2014  Add it to Goodreads!

FROM GOODREADS: From the #1 New York Times bestselling author Scott Westerfeld comes a smart, thought-provoking novel-within-a-novel that you won't be able to put down.

Darcy Patel has put college on hold to publish her teen novel, Afterworlds. With a contract in hand, she arrives in New York City with no apartment, no friends, and all the wrong clothes. But lucky for Darcy, she's taken under the wings of other seasoned and fledgling writers who help her navigate the city and the world of writing and publishing. Over the course of a year, Darcy finishes her book, faces critique, and falls in love.

Woven into Darcy's personal story is her novel, Afterworlds, a suspenseful thriller about a teen who slips into the "Afterworld" to survive a terrorist attack. The Afterworld is a place between the living and the dead, and where many unsolved- and terrifying- stories need to be reconciled. LIke Darcy, Lizzie too falls in love... until a new threat resurfaces, and her special gifts may not be enough to protect those she cares about most.

Why I'm Waiting:

1. The novel within a novel aspect sort of reminds me of Fangirl, which I loved!!


3. I love the teen author aspect. I would love to read about the struggles Darcy faces as a young novelist, like myself.

4. I remember reading somewhere that Darcy wrote her book during NaNoWriMo, which is awesome!! I really want to read about her NaNo experience. I know mine was rough, but totally worth it and super fun!!

  1. This sounds very interesting and definitely different! I still haven't read anything by Scott Westerfeld, so maybe I'll start with this one!

    1. OMG! You need to read Uglies! That was one of my very first trilogies to read after falling hardcore into loving to read, and I just adored it so much! I really should do a reread soon!!!

  2. OOh nice! Been seeing a lot of this author around the blogosphere! Hope you enjoy it once you read it!

    Here's my WoW

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

  3. I've sworn off contemporary for the most part, due to recent bad experiences with it, but this one does sound really fun.

    1. Aw that stinks! I've found some really great contemps lately!! I've never been much of a contemp reader either so if I really talk about one a lot, it means I'm crazy about it. I like the sound of this one though, because it has a little bit more of an adventurous aspect to it besides just the contemp part!

  4. I can't wait to read this book! Scott Westerfeld is one of my all time favorite authors, and when I discovered that he had a new book coming out, I was so excited! I'm glad to see you're a fan of the author too. :)

    Here's my WoW

    1. I love Scott Westerfeld!! He's one of my faves too!!!! I freaked when I heard he was releasing a new book, and it drove me crazy waiting to see the synopsis for it!!! :) I'm glad you're just as stoked as I am, Kaitlin! :)
