Waiting on Wednesday #8

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're anticipating!

For this Wow I picked the book:

Title: Everland
Author: Wendy Spinale
Publisher: Scholastic Press
Publication Date: April/26/2016

Summary(From Goodreads):

Forget the story of Peter Pan you know. Because in Everland, the only way to grow up is to survive.

London has been destroyed in a blitz of bombs and disease. The only ones who have survived are children, among them Gwen Darling and her siblings, Joanna and Mikey. They spend their nights scavenging and their days avoiding the ruthless Marauders -- the German Army led by Captain Hanz Otto Oswald Kretschmer.

Unsure if the virus has spread past England's borders but desperate to leave, Captain Hook hunts for a cure, which he thinks can be found in one of the survivors. He and his Marauders stalk the streets snatching children for experimentation. None ever return. Until the day they grab Joanna. As Gwen sets out to save her, she meets a mysterious boy named Pete. Pete offers the assistance of his gang of Lost Boys and the fierce sharpshooter Bella, who have all been living in a city hidden underground. But in a place where help has a steep price and every promise is bound by blood, it will cost Gwen. And are she, Pete, the Lost Boys, and Bella enough to outsmart Captain Hook?

Thoughts: I love Peter Pan far too much to even think about skipping out on this! I LOVE Peter Pan retellings! Hopefully this one will be as wonderful as it sounds! *Fingers Crossed*

Stay Drunk...on Books,


  1. Oooh, this sounds good! Going to add it to my Goodreads TBR right now! Thanks for sharing.
    Check out my WOW

  2. Great pick! I've read several books that are twists on fairy tales, but nothing based upon Peter Pan yet. I will definitely add this to my TBR list. Thanks for stopping by my WoW and sharing!!

    1. Yay! I feel like Peter Pan retellings are becoming a bit more popular! Thanks for swinging by!
