“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine
that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
After taking a pretty long break from Waiting on Wednesday posts, today I was ready to jump right back into it. And I knew the exact book that I wanted to choose- Underworld by Meg Cabot! It is no secret that I love Meg Cabot, and I have been craving her books lately. She is just one of those authors that you know you can pick up any book of theirs and love it. There is no uncertainty with her. If I want a great read, I can count on Meg.
So anyways, I go to my trusty goodreads and look up underworld….and there was no cover for it! I was crushed. I kept trying to think of other books and there are tons that I am excited for but I just kept coming back to good ole Mrs. Cabot. Then I thought, so what is there is no cover it’s my blog and this wednesday I am waiting on Underworld. So i’m featuring it anyways!
Expected publication: 2012 by Scholastic Inc.

one whom he loves.
But while Pierce might be safe from the Furies in the
Underworld, far worse dangers could be lurking for her
there…and they might have more to do with its ruler than
with his enemies.
And unless Pierce is careful, this time there’ll be no
