Waiting on Wednesday: Whichwood by Tahereh Mafi

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine

 What I'm waiting for...


A new adventure about a girl who is fated to wash the bodies of the dead in this companion to Furthermore.

Our story begins on a frosty night…

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 on this book? To be honest, I've never read a middle grade book, but this is Tahereh Mafi and this sounds a lot darker that Furthermore, so I really, really want to read it!
What about you?

  1. Such a gorgeous cover! Usually I'm not a fan of a person/people being on the cover, but I LOVE that this heroine is on the cover. I am a huge fan. :D I've not read an MG novel in a long time but this may be one for me. I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!

    Have a fabulous week, Lis. =)
