Waiting on Wednesday – Week 179

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:
Spare and Found Parts by Sarah Maria Griffin

Nell Crane has always been an outsider. In a city devastated by an epidemic, where survivors are all missing parts—an arm, a leg, an eye—her father is the famed scientist who created the biomechanical limbs everyone now uses. But Nell is the only one whose mechanical piece is on the inside: her heart. Since the childhood operation, she has ticked. Like a clock, like a bomb. As her community rebuilds, everyone is expected to contribute to the society’s good . . . but how can Nell live up to her father’s revolutionary idea when she has none of her own?

Then she finds a mannequin hand while salvaging on the beach—the first boy’s hand she’s ever held—and inspiration strikes. Can Nell build her own companion in a world that fears advanced technology? The deeper she sinks into this plan, the more she learns about her city—and her father, who is hiding secret experiments of his own.

This one sounds a lot like Pure meets This Monstrous Thing, with a touch of The Madman's Daughter! I can't wait to read Spare and Found Parts–besides the gorgeous cover, the dystopian feel of the novel gives off a unique vibe, and I'm excited to see what's in store!

What are you waiting on?


  1. Very Frankenstein-ish. Interesting for sure :)

  2. Spare an dFound Parts sounds so unique and different... and I like your comparisons with Pure, TMT. and The Madman's daughter. I haven't seen this around but I'm definitely adding this to my TBR

  3. This does sound unique, and definitely different. I havent' read a good dystopian in a long time. I will watch for this.
