Waiting on Wednesday #64: Whichwood by Tahereh Mafi

Hello everyone! "Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, that is hosted by Breaking the Spine and the purpose of this event is that we spotlight upcoming releases of books that we are excited for!  This will also tie into Wishful Ending's Can't Wait Wednesday post!

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Title:  Whichwood
Author:  Tahereh Mafi
Expected Publication Date:  November 14th, 2017

A new adventure about a girl who is fated to wash the bodies of the dead in this companion to Furthermore.

Our story begins on a frosty night…

Laylee can barely remember the happier times before her beloved mother died. Before her father, driven by grief, lost his wits (and his way). Before she was left as the sole remaining mordeshoor in the village of Whichwood, destined to spend her days washing the bodies of the dead and preparing their souls for the afterlife. It’s become easy to forget and easier still to ignore the way her hands are stiffening and turning silver, just like her hair, and her own ever-increasing loneliness and fear.

But soon, a pair of familiar strangers appears, and Laylee’s world is turned upside down as she rediscovers color, magic, and the healing power of friendship.

I've never read any of Tahereh Mafi's books or even the "Furthermore" series, but this book sounds really interesting!

So, what upcoming books are you looking forward to?  Please respond below!


  1. OMG, Ronyell!! What an AMAZING choice!! I LOVE that cover!! And the plot sounds SO intriguing and magical! I've never read anything by this author before, either, but this one might be my first! Thanks for putting this book on my radar!! <3 <3 :) :)

  3. This book does sound interesting and like you I haven't read Furthermore, though my co-blogger did and loved it. I am curious about this one and it's been sitting on my shelf for a while. Maybe it's time to try Furthermore, we'll see!
