Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly blog post by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights releases we're eagerly awaiting.


There’s no place like home. Especially if home is the infamous Isle of the Lost. Mal, Evie, Carlos, and Jay haven’t exactly turned their villainous noses up at the comforts of Auradon after spending their childhoods banished on the Isle. After all, meeting princes and starring on the Tourney team aren’t nearly as terrible as Mal and her friends once thought they would be.

But when they receive a mysterious invitation to return to the Isle, Mal, Evie, Carlos, and Jay can’t help feeling comfortable in their old hood—and their old ways. Not everything is how they left it, though, and when they discover a dark mystery at the Ise’s core, they’ll have to combine all of their talents in order to save the kingdom.




I thought the first book was rather cute! The movie...the movie was cute, if a little hooky with all the singing. I get that it's Disney and especially Disney Channel movies are all about the signing! But I think this one will be fun to read! And I thought it was quite comical that Kristin Chenwoth sang a song called "Don't You Want to Be Evil?" because it totally reminded me of "Popular"!

TITLE: Return to the Isle of the Lost
AUTHOR: Melissa de la Cruz
PUBLISHER: Disney-Hyperion
GENRE: DISNEY! (yeah not sure what to call this? lol!)
RELEASE DATE: May 24, 2016 



Despite Rives and Skye's attempt to destroy Nil, the island remains. And back in this world, Nil won't let Skye go. Haunted by a darkness she can't ignore, Skye wrestles with Nil nightmares that worsen by the day and threaten to tear her apart. As Skye fights to keep her mind intact, she realizes that to finally break free of Nil, she must end Nil's vicious cycle once and for all--and she can't do it alone.

Who will return to Nil, and in the end, who will survive? In this thrilling final installment of the Nil series, the stakes have never been higher: everyone's fate hangs in the balance, including Nil's own--and Nil will fight to the death. When the full force of the island is unleashed, Skye faces an impossible choice, a cruel one she'd never imagined she'd have to make. Soon one Nil truth becomes painfully clear: only one side can win.

Losing isn't an option, but winning will cost Skye everything.

Perfect for fans of Lost and survivalist stories, NIL ON FIRE is a stunning conclusion to the Nil trilogy that will leave readers breathless.


I still need to start this series but what better way to do that then binge the trilogy once it's all out?! No waiting! YAY!

AUTHOR: Lynn Matson
PUBLISHER: Henry Holt and Co.
GENRE: Action/Thriller-y YA--haven't read book 1 yet so I can't determine its genre...

  1. Both of these seem like they are going to be great reads. I use the Descendants movie in sociology to teach how sometimes deviant behavior is a positive thing.
