Waiting on Wednesday: Wither - Lauren DeStefano

Waiting on Wednesday was started by Jill over at Breaking the Spine and is a post detailing an upcoming book you can't wait to read.

This week I've chosen 'Wither' by Lauren DeStefano. Wow - this one sounds pretty intense, just take a look at the synopsis below if you haven't heard about it yet. I have really high hopes for 'Wither' so I hope it doesn't disappoint! Plus, check out the gorgeous cover.

Summary (from Goodreads): What if you knew exactly when you would die?

Thanks to modern science, every human being has become a ticking genetic time bomb—males only live to age twenty-five, and females only live to age twenty. In this bleak landscape, young girls are kidnapped and forced into polygamous marriages to keep the population from dying out.

When sixteen-year-old Rhine Ellery is taken by the Gatherers to become a bride, she enters a world of wealth and privilege. Despite her husband Linden's genuine love for her, and a tenuous trust among her sister wives, Rhine has one purpose: to escape—to find her twin brother and go home.

But Rhine has more to contend with than losing her freedom. Linden's eccentric father is bent on finding an antidote to the genetic virus that is getting closer to taking his son, even if it means collecting corpses in order to test his experiments. With the help of Gabriel, a servant she trusts, Rhine attempts to break free, in the limted time she has left.

So what books can't you wait for? What's your pick this week?


  1. I've got this on my wishlist as well. Sounds promising and I love the cover!

  2. Wow, I’ve never heard of this piece before. Raine is a very brave girl. Her great task is to save her brother and save his life. Difficult choice, especially for such a young age. At my 16, I entered university and thinking about making money. When I found a job, I realized that this is possible to combine work and study, but essay writing was time consuming. For a long time I was looking for a solution to this problem, I tried to write on my own, trying every time to cope with it faster. It raised my level of writing. However, then I realized that I didn't want to spend more time on it, and therefore I turned to writing services. There are a lot of them on the Internet, so I turned to my friends who have been cooperating with such services for a long time. Then I found I will leave you a link to it so that you don't spend your time looking for a suitable writing service.
