Out Today: Wither by Lauren DeStefano

In stores today, March 22, is Wither by Lauren DeStefano. You can read my review HERE.






What if you knew exactly when you would die?


Thanks to modern science, every human being has become a ticking genetic time bomb—males only live to age twenty-five, and females only live to age twenty. In this bleak landscape, young girls are kidnapped and forced into polygamous marriages to keep the population from dying out.


When sixteen-year-old Rhine Ellery is taken by the Gatherers to become a bride, she enters a world of wealth and privilege. Despite her husband Linden's genuine love for her, and a tenuous trust among her sister wives, Rhine has one purpose: to escape—to find her twin brother and go home.


But Rhine has more to contend with than losing her freedom. Linden's eccentric father is bent on finding an antidote to the genetic virus that is getting closer to taking his son, even if it means collecting corpses in order to test his experiments. With the help of Gabriel, a servant Rhine is growing dangerously attracted to, Rhine attempts to break free, in the limted time she has left.

  1. I cannot describe how excited I am to read this (esp. because I let my ARC run out...)

    Have you started it yet??

  2. Wither is a pretty solid Dystopian read with a beautiful cover. :D

    And I'm a new follower! I was wondering if you'd be interested in being added to my list of HS bloggers (it's a tab on my homepage)? We're trying to start a small community, so let me know what you think (and if you know any other HS bloggers, that's cool too). :)
