Waiting On Wensday #25 Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld

Song Of The Moment - Forever Halloween by The Maine

So I have been really bad with my WoW posts recently...so I figured I should do one, right?

18367581Afterworlds
by Scott Westerfeld
Pub. Date - Sep. 23rd
Description(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 - So I haven't read a lot from this author...the first two Uglies books and that's it. But this book sounds so interesting and I really just want to see what it's all about. Also as an aspiring author(who is 18 and forgoing college at the moment to focus on writing among other things) I feel like, hopefully, I'll really be able to connect with the main character in this book and more than anything it just really intrigues me!


What are you waiting for this Wednesday?

  1. I've been wanting to read the Uglies series. I haven't read anything by this author but this one does sound intriguing!

  2. I really like that book cover. The book blurb I had to read twice (again, because I think I've read this one when it was featured in another blogger's WoW ^_^), there are two stories in the book and I guess the author plans to play off on the meta here or are these two 'worlds' going to collide at some point in the book.. LOL.. just ramblings from me. But thanks for sharing.

    1. Yeah the blurb is kind of confusing I think, when I first heard of it I read it over and over again because while it makes it sound interesting it's also kind of vague. But that cover is epic!

  4. I really want to read this one too! I kind of liked the Uglies series (well, the first 3 anyway), but I am hoping that Afterworlds will be good! It sounds so unique too. Great pick!
