Waiting on Wednesday – Week 176

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It's to spotlight upcoming releases that I'm DYING to get my hands on!

This week's WoW is:
The Scourge by Jennifer A. Nielsen

As a lethal plague sweeps through the land, Ani Mells is shocked when she is unexpectedly captured by the governor's wardens and forced to submit to a test for the deadly Scourge. She is even more surprised when the test results come back positive, and she is sent to Attic Island, a former prison turned refuge -- and quarantine colony -- for the ill. The Scourge's victims, Ani now among them, can only expect to live out short, painful lives there. However, Ani quickly discovers that she doesn't know the whole truth about the Scourge or the Colony. She's been caught in a devious plot, and, with the help of her best friend, Weevil, Ani means to uncover just what is actually going on. 

But will she and Weevil survive long enough to do so?

I'm spotlighting a middle grade read this week! Even though I tend not to read MG fiction too much, this one sounds amazing. I haven't read The False Prince series yet, but I've heard nothing but good things. Thankfully I don't have to wait long for this one!

What are you waiting on?


  1. I love the cover of this book! I haven't read anything by the author, but I have several of her books on my TBR. I hope you enjoy this book when you get a chance to read it!

    Have a wonderful week, Rabiah. =)

  2. This doesn't sound like something I would normally read, but I hope you enjoy it!

  3. Ooh... I'm excited for The Scourge too! I love Nielsen's The False Prince series!

  4. Unfortunately, The Ascendance Trilogy left such a bad taste in my mouth (or I should probably say mind), that I couldn't pick up another one of Jennifer Nielsen's books for the life of me! This novel, however, looks too good to miss!!!
