Waiting on Wednesday - The Scourge

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming release that book bloggers are eagerly anticipating.

Release Date: August 30, 2016
Publisher: Scholistic Press
Author: 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. 

 Book Link PreOrder it!
I'm still hesitant when I pick up Dystopian books. It's a genre I'm just busting into the genre after firmly swearing it wasn't for me.  Thanks to Red Rising and Illuminae I have been slowly wading my way through the genre.  This sounds interesting I might add it to my Hold list at the library.

What's everyone else looking forward to this Wednesday?


  1. I've not read any books by this author! I love this book's cover - though I will say, I'm a little sick of dystopia novels as well. This one sounds okay! I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!

    Thanks for visiting my blog! Have a wonderful week. =)

    1. Thanks and Agreed! They are everywhere right now.

  2. I have read something by this author, but I cannot for the life of me, remember what it was!! This book definitely sounds interesting though!

    1. I think what I like the most about this one is that it looks like it will be stand alone. And, yeah she has two other series out there.
