"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. Be sure to post a link to your Waiting on Wednesday below!

This week's pre-publication "We can't wait to read it!" selections are...

Author: Carrie Ryan & John Parke Davis
Release Date: November 4, 2014
Published by: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers

To Master Thief Fin, an orphan from the murky pirate world of the Khaznot Quay, the Map is the key to finding his mother. To suburban schoolgirl Marrill, it's her only way home after getting stranded on the Pirate Stream, the magical waterway that connects every world in creation. With the help of a bumbling wizard and his crew, they must scour the many worlds of the Pirate Stream to gather the pieces of the Map to Everywhere--but they aren't the only ones looking. A sinister figure is hot on their tail, and if they can't beat his ghostly ship to find the Map, it could mean the destruction of everything they hold dear! (Summary from Goodreads)

Doesn't this sound like a fun fantasy adventure? I'm in.

It's an oppressively hot and sticky morning in June when Sterling and her brother, Phin, have an argument that compels him to run into the town swamp -- the one that strikes fear in all the residents of Sticks, Louisiana. Phin doesn't return. Instead, a girl named Lenora May climbs out, and now Sterling is the only person in Sticks who remembers her brother ever existed.

Sterling needs to figure out what the swamp's done with her beloved brother and how Lenora May is connected to his disappearance -- and loner boy Heath Durham might be the only one who can help her. (Summary from Goodreads)

What a fantastic mystery and I'm completely hooked on these Louisiana stories that keep popping up! Just keep sending them my way! I'm in! 

What are you waiting on this week?

  1. This is the second time I've seen Beware the Wild featured. I'm completely intrigued. And The Map to Everywhere looks like a great MG. Can't wait to check that one out too. Thank you for sharing!
