Waiting on Wendsday (5)

Waiting on Wendsday is hosted by Jill over at Breaking The Spine where we show the books that are not yet released, but that we are eagerly awaiting!! 

GoodReads Summary: 
A stunningly beautiful novel about a young boy’s survival during a winter that never ends. 2059. The snow begins to fall. Only the few are prepared. A new ice-age has begun. Born after the snows, fifteen-year-old straggler kid Willo Blake has never known a life outside hunting and trapping in the hills. When his family mysteriously disappears, leaving him alone on a freezing mountain, Willo sets off into the unknown to find them. Meanwhile, across Britain, outlawed followers of survivalist John Blovyn are planning an escape to the fabled Islands talked of in a revolutionary book. 

When Willo meets an abandoned girl on his trek across the hills, his world collides with outlaws and halfmen on an epic journey that leads him to the new world of the city - a place where the dog spirit inside his head cannot help him. 

It is a journey of betrayal and violence. A journey of awakening love and humanity. A journey that changes everything he ever thought he knew.
Expected Publication Date: 2012 from MacMillan Childrens Books

Why I cannot wait for this book: first of all its DYSTOPIAN, which I can't get enough of latley!! I love disaster-type, survival of the fittest type books, and this just sounds utterly AMAZING!! 


  1. I do, too! The more disaster/survival the more it holds my interest ... and I was lucky enough to get an ARC of this incredible book! It is very, very well written.

    Another read that I think you would like is the newly released Dark Inside by Jeyn Roberts. To give you an idea, the book opens with a major earthquake practically decimating the entire west coast of the US. Honestly, it grips you by the throat from the get-go, so I'm sure you would totally LOVE it! :D

  2. Ive heard of this one. Its def on my tbr awesome pick girl. I will be reading my first dystopians this month :)

  3. Ohhh this sounds pretty good! I've been keeping my eye on it haha. Great pick!
