“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week’s pre-publication “can’t-wait-to-read” selection is:
Rhine and Gabriel have escaped the mansion, but danger is never far behind.
Running away brings Rhine and Gabriel right into a trap, in the form of a twisted carnival whose ringmistress keeps watch over a menagerie of girls. Just as Rhine uncovers what plans await her, her fortune turns again. With Gabriel at her side, Rhine travels through an environment as grim as the one she left a year ago – surroundings that mirror her own feelings of fear and hopelessness.
The two are determined to get to Manhattan, to relative safety with Rhine’s twin brother, Rowan. But the road there is long and perilous – and in a world where young women only live to age twenty and young men die at twenty-five, time is precious. Worse still, they can’t seem to elude Rhine’s father-in-law, Vaughn, who is determined to bring Rhine back to the mansion…by any means necessary.
In the sequel to Lauren DeStefano’s harrowing Wither, Rhine must decide if freedom is worth the price – now that she has more to lose than ever.

I really NEED this book!
Jennifer G. says
I have yet to read this series, but I keep hearing a lot about it. Guess I need to check it out!
This is definitely a book that I want, too, but there’s something about the “heroin-chic” model on the covers that really bugs me. I can’t be the only one.
That being said, Wither is one of this year’s most noteworthy debuts, and I’ll definitely be checking Fever out, too.

This is definitely on my wishlist too! I really enjoyed WITHER and an looking forward to seeing how the story continues in FEVER.
My WoW is BETWEEN THE SEA AND SKY.
I am really going crazy waiting for this book. Wither has been one of my favorites so far this year.
