Waiting on…Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld

Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which we share a book that we are eagerly anticipating!

Publisher: Simon Pulse

Release Date: September 23, 2014

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Darcy Patel has put college and everything else on hold to publish her teen novel, Afterworlds. Arriving in New York with no apartment or friends she wonders whether she’s made the right decision until she falls in with a crowd of other seasoned and fledgling writers who take her under their wings…

Told in alternating chapters is Darcy’s novel, a suspenseful thriller about Lizzie, a teen who slips into the ‘Afterworld’ to survive a terrorist attack. But the Afterworld is a place between the living and the dead and as Lizzie drifts between our world and that of the Afterworld, she discovers that many unsolved – and terrifying – stories need to be reconciled. And when a new threat resurfaces, Lizzie learns her special gifts may not be enough to protect those she loves and cares about most.

why i can't wait

When I read the synopsis for this book all I could think was “This book is going to be a complete mindf*ck.” (Excuse the language – I actually couldn’t think of a better word.) It sounds realistic, yet twisty and wonderful and amazing and I just need this book in my life RIGHT NOW! I haven’t read anything like this before and I’m totally rambling and fangirling right now but…*sigh* I’ve seen tons of bloggers get this at BEA and I’m SO JEALOUS. I completely admit my jealousy of everyone regarding this book.

Does Afterworlds look interesting to you? What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

  1. I’m torn on this one, the ‘novel’ part of the book sounds interesting, but I usually get bored by real life stories. Then again, knowing Westerfeld the young writer will somehow wind up in Afterworld somehow.

  2. The fact that it’s by Scott Westerfeld just makes it a must-read, no questions asks. I am a bit confused by the synopsis, though, but I am intrigued enough to want to read it.

I'd love to hear what you have to say!
