Waiting on Wednesday [#54]

Hello! I hope you’re all having a fabulous week. I’m very excited for the release of the book I’m talking about today because Victoria Scott is definitely one of my favourite authors. I’m trying very hard at the moment to get a lot of reading done – seeing as I slumped a fair bit through most of the month – and so far it’s feeling good. Lots of reading shall be done this new year.

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the SpineIt’s a tremendously fun thing to be because you have an excuse to gallivant through the 2016 releases (and probably buy far too many books). It’s also fantastic fun to head over to the official page and check out the link up to what everyone else is waiting on!


This week I’m waiting on . . .

Hear the Wolves

by Victoria Scott

Genre: Middle-Grade
Author: Victoria Scott
Publisher: Scholastic Press
Pages: 240 {hardback}

 Sloan is a hunter.
So she shouldn’t be afraid of anything. But ever since her mom left the family and she lost hearing in one ear in a blizzard, it’s been hard to talk to people, and near-impossible to go anywhere or do anything without her dad or big sister within eyesight — it makes her too scared to be on her own.
When they leave her home alone for what should only be two nights, she’s already panicked. Then the snow starts falling and doesn’t stop. One of her neighbors is hurt in an accident. And the few people still left in Rusic need to make it to the river and the boat that’s tied there — their only way to get to a doctor from their isolated Alaska town.
But the woods are icy cold, and the wolves are hungry. Sloan and her group are running out of food, out of energy, and out of time. That’s when the wolves start hunting them . . .

RELEASE DATE: 28th March 2017


Since reading Scott’s Fire & Flood and its sequel, Salt & Stone, I’ve been completely obsessed with her books. I’m determined to read absolutely everything written by her now. I’m so excited that she’s writing a new book (and middle-grade!!) and it has WOLVES in the title. Truth be told I’m sold on pretty much just that, #Shallow.

  1. I haven’t read anything by Scott but I remember seeing this cover a while back and automatically adding it to my TBR. It’s so simple but perfect! I hope we both love it when its released. 🙂

  2. This book sounds so wonderful! I never considered that Victoria Scott wrote MG as well. I think that this is going to be really enjoyable and the wolves will most likely add an exciting element. Thank you so much for sharing! 🙂
