We wanted to do another bookish meme on Wednesday and after Candyce did Can’t Wait Wednesday we decided that would be a fun way to bring around more often! About twice a month you’ll see this meme on our blog.
Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
Today I want to talk about a middle grade book I’m really excited about. Hollowpox: The Hunt for Morrigan Crown is out in February and I can’t wait!
Morrigan Crow and her friends have survived their first year as proud scholars of the elite Wundrous Society, helped bring down the nefarious Ghastly Market, and proven themselves loyal to Unit 919. Now Morrigan faces a new, exciting challenge: to master the mysterious Wretched Arts of the Accomplished Wundersmith, and control the power that threatens to consume her.
Meanwhile, a strange and frightening illness has taken hold of Nevermoor, turning infected Wunimals into mindless, vicious Unnimals on the hunt. As victims of the Hollowpox multiply, panic spreads. There are whispers – growing louder every day – that this catastrophe can only be the work of the Wundersmith, Ezra Squall.
But inside the walls of Wunsoc, everyone knows there is a new Wundersmith – one who’s much closer to home. With Nevermoor in a state of fear and the truth about Morrigan threatening to get out, the city she loves becomes the most perilous place in the world. Morrigan must try to find a cure for the Hollowpox, but it will put her – and everyone in Nevermoor – in more danger than she could have imagined.
I loved the first two books and the magical world it brings us to. A lot of people compare this series to Harry Potter and it does have some similar elements, but it’s also its unique world. Morrigan is such a fun character and I can’t wait to see where Hollowpox takes us!
Have you ever heard of the Nevermoor series? What did you think? I love talking about this series, so let me know in the comments!
