It’s time for another “Waiting on Wednesday” and this time, I’ll talk about a book from my favorite author of all times. Tahereh Mafi!
Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
My choice for today it’s Furthermore’s sequel.
AUTHOR: Tahereh Mafi
TITLE: Whichwood (Furthermore #2)
PAGES: 368 pages
PUBLISHER: Dutton Books for Young Readers
RELEASE DATE: 14th November, 2017
Laylee can barely remember the happier times before her beloved mother died. Before her father, driven by grief, lost his wits (and his way). Before she was left as the sole remaining mordeshoor in the village of Whichwood, destined to spend her days washing the bodies of the dead and preparing their souls for the afterlife. It’s become easy to forget and easier still to ignore the way her hands are stiffening and turning silver, just like her hair, and her own ever-increasing loneliness and fear.
But soon, a pair of familiar strangers appears, and Laylee’s world is turned upside down as she rediscovers color, magic, and the healing power of friendship.
WHY AM I WAITING?
I’m really excited about this release! I loved “Furthermore” and gave it 5 stars. It was definetly one of my favorite reads of this year. I have high expectations for this one and knowing that it’s from Tahereh Mafi, I know I won’t be desapointed.
