Waiting on Wednesday (11): The Whatnot by Stefan Bachmann

Waiting on Wednesday (WoW) is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine!

This week, I'm eagerly waiting on...


The Whatnot (The Peculiar, #2)
by Stefan Bachmann
Release Date: September 24, 2013

Since no synopsis has been released for The Whatnot, I'll provide my own little summary of the first book:

In The Peculiar (book one), we meet a changeling in a changeling-banished world where he is all alone and gets himself noticed, leading him to be hunted down by the people who want to kill him. With the help of the only friend he's ever known, he will try to save his world and the world against him. And in the sequel, The Whatnot, I'm expecting lots of creepiness and war-fighting-scenes!









OH MY GOSH, YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW EXCITED I AM FOR THIS BOOK AND HOW MUCH I'M DYING FOR IT.

Here's a story: I had major foot surgery back on August 15. I started The Peculiar on August 16 and read it within 24 hours. It leaves on a MAJOR cliffhanger, and at the time, no sequel had been announced. So there I was, in a hospital bed with a large cast wrapped my foot and taking pain medicine for my foot, and absolutely heartbroken. Because I didn't think there was another one, and it really sadden my mood. I adored and loved The Peculiar - so much to where it's my favorite middle-grade book. 

So when The Whatnot was announced, I wanted to bounce up and down and freak out and do a happy dance. Unfortunately, I was still in the cast, so that wasn't going to happen. But I sure wanted to. The Peculiar was phenomenal, and I can't wait to see what happens in The Whatnot. September needs to hurry up and get here because I can't wait any longer for this one!

Plus, LOOK AT THAT AMAZING COVER. Isn't it pure art?!

Did you do a WoW post? I'd love to see it; leave links in the comments!

Happy reading!

  1. I haven't read this series yet but it looks cute. The little bug on the cover reminds me of something from that animated movie a couple years back called Robots it's neat.
