Waiting on Wednesday #47

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by, Breaking the Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases we can't wait to get our hands on!

Title: The Spindlers
Author: Lauren Oliver
Release Date: October 2nd, 2012
Publisher: HarperCollins

One night when Liza went to bed, Patrick was her chubby, stubby, candy-grubbing and pancake-loving younger brother, who irritated and amused her both, and the next morning, when she woke up, he was not. In fact, he was quite, quite different. 

When Liza's brother, Patrick, changes overnight, Liza knows exactly what has happened: The spindlers have gotten to him and stolen his soul. 

She knows, too, that she is the only one who can save him. 

To rescue Patrick, Liza must go Below, armed with little more than her wits and a broom. There, she uncovers a vast world populated with talking rats, music-loving moles, greedy troglods, and overexcitable nids . . . as well as terrible dangers. But she will face her greatest challenge at the spindlers' nests, where she encounters the evil queen and must pass a series of deadly tests--or else her soul, too, will remain Below forever.

Though this is a middle grade book, it's on my wishlist purely because Lauren Oliver's writing is magical.   I still haven't gotten to read her first middle grade book, Liesl and Po, but I have no doubt that both of them are just as amazing as her YA novels.

What awesome title are you waiting for this Wednesday?


  1. You had me at Lauren Oliver too. I definitely am going to have to check this one out.
