Waiting On Wednesday (40)

Waiting On Wednesday was created by Jill over at Breaking The Spine. It's a weekly post for you to share what upcoming books you can't wait for!

Plague (Gone #4) by Michael Grant.
Publisher: HarperTeen.
Release Date: April 5th, 2011.

After eight months after everyone over the age of fourteen disaapeared from the town of Perdidio Beach, California, the stakes are still rising. The kids in Perdido Beach are still starving. Yet despite the simmering unrest left behind by so many battles, power struggles, and angry divides, there is a momentary calm in Perdido Beach.

But enemies in the FAYZ don’t just fade away, and in the quiet, deadly things are stirring, mutating, and finding their way free. The Darkness has found its way into the mind of its Nemesis at last and is controlling it through a haze of delirium and confusion. A highly contagious, fatal illness spreads at an alarming rate as sinister, predatory insects terrorize Perdido Beach. And Sam, Astrid, Diana, and Caine are plagued by a growing doubt that they’ll escape—or even survive—life in the FAYZ. With so much turmoil surrounding them, what desperate choices will they make when it comes to saving themselves and those they love?

Anyone that follows this blog must now by now how big of a fan I am of the Gone series. So I literally squealed when I heard about this. Sound AMAZING. And the cover is great as usual. (But does anyone know who that is behind Astrid? I have a few ideas, but I'm not positive!)


  1. OMG!!!! Cant wait!!!!! I think the guy behind Astrid is one of the people from the island. I wonder why they are important?

  2. I love this series as well! Can't wait! It's one of many I'm waiting on right now. Can't wait for 3rd in Hunger Games series as well!!

  3. Hey Katie! This one is one of my WOWs too,
    although I haven't even read GONE yet :P
    I love the cover on this one - but is that supposed to be Astrid, you think? She looks a little different.
    Can't wait for this one! Thanks for spotlighting it :D

  4. I still haven't read the first book :( People keep talking about this series, so must be good.

  5. Lenore, YES, it's book 4. I think it's the heat. It's messing with my brain cells. I have no clue why I wrote 7, but thank you for pointing it out! :)

  6. I just received Gone today, I've also been hearing good things about this series. Things like, "If you liked Hunger Games, you'd like this series", so I thought I'd better get it and see :)
