Waiting on Wednesday [#8]

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over @ Breaking the Spine. Each week we get to feature one up and coming release and talk about it for a bit. It’s a lot of fun and a fantastic way to learn about new books and what’s waiting in the wings for us in 2016. Anyone can join – and make sure you head over to the official link up to visit everyone else’s posts!


 This week I’m waiting on:

The Neverland Wars by Audrey Greathouse


Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy (retellings)
Author: Audrey Greathouse
Publisher: Clean Teen Publishing
Pages: 300 {paperback}

RELEASE DATE: 9th May 2016

Magic can do a lot—give you flight, show you mermaids, help you taste the stars, and… solve the budget crisis? That’s what the grown-ups will do with it if they ever make it to Neverland to steal its magic and bring their children home.

However, Gwen doesn’t know this. She’s just a sixteen-year-old girl with a place on the debate team and a powerful crush on Jay, the soon-to-be homecoming king. She doesn’t know her little sister could actually run away with Peter Pan, or that she might have to chase after her to bring her home safe. Gwen will find out though—and when she does, she’ll discover she’s in the middle of a looming war between Neverland and reality.

She’ll be out of place as a teenager in Neverland, but she won’t be the only one. Peter Pan’s constant treks back to the mainland have slowly aged him into adolescence as well. Soon, Gwen will have to decide whether she’s going to join impish, playful Peter in his fight for eternal youth… or if she’s going to scramble back to reality in time for the homecoming dance.


Holy cow, guys – this sounds amazing! I only recently discovered this book (as in, this morning) and I found out about it via Twitter. I had not heard a peep about this book and I don’t understand why! Fairy-tale retellings are 100% my jam and I cannot wait to read this. I will definitely be pre-ordering a copy in the near future. This sounds like a wicked Young Adult retelling of Peter Pan that’s allowed for romance with Peter Pan himself because Greathouse is a very clever lady and obviously knows how to please.

I can’t believe I have to wait another couple of months before this comes out – THE WAIT WILL KILL ME. I really hope this is as awesome as it sounds because I’m practically jumping up and down in my chair with anticipation. I urge you all to add this book and consider pre-ordering it to help get the word around. Greathouse is a very lovely person and I managed to have a quick chat with her to ask whether this is becoming a series or not. Guess what? IT IS. Well, hopefully – if book one gets enough readers then she’ll be able to continue writing the series so PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE join me in supporting her, I think we’ve found a hidden gem here – seriously.

Can we all take another moment to appreciate the beauty of the cover as well? Another reason to definitely read this, I would say. WHO’S WITH ME?





What are you waiting on?
