Waiting On Wednesday (30)

by Victoria Scott

The Brimstone Bleed

Spring 2014
~ Scholastic ~

Sixteen-year-old Tella Holloway isn’t happy. Her mother rushed them out of Boston, and into a craptastic house nestled in no-man’s-land. To make matters worse, Tella’s brother is sick, and though a dozen doctors can’t determine the cause, her mother is sure Montana’s “fresh air” will help. Now Tella spends her days being homeschooled, and uses her imagination as entertainment.

But when a small blue box appears on her bed, Tella’s world is rocked. Inside the strange package she finds a white ear bud—and after she fits it into place and touches its blinking button—an unknown voice fills her head. Tella is invited to join The Brimstone Bleed, a race across four ecosystems: desert, sea, mountains, jungle. The voice in Tella’s ear explains she has 48 hours to retrieve her Pandora, an animal designed by the Creators to help her win.

Tella has never been the sporty type; she’s more a cheerleader than an athlete. But despite her mother’s warnings, she’s determined to compete in the race. And she’ll do anything to win, because if she’s The Brimstone Bleed victor, the Creators will grant her a specific gift—the cure to save her brother’s life.

If Victoria Scott's debut book THE COLLECTOR is my most anticipated debut of 2013, then her new YA thriller THE BRIMSTONE BLEED is definitely my most anticipated of 2014. 
I mean have you read the summary??? It sounds completely different and just plain awesome. I have so much high expectations on this and I want the book now *pouts*

Anyway I asked Victoria if there's a hot guy in this book (I always have to know, guys!), and she said the guy's hotter than Dante. HOTTER. Now, I haven't read The Collector yet (obvs) but we all know how sexy Dante is. But this guy is apparently even hotter. (Read this if you don't believe me.)

You can also find a little unedited excerpt here --> http://www.victoriascottya.com/project-ya-fantasy/  (yep. Totally not stalking her AT ALL. :P)

Cover Thoughts: 
Well. Obviously we don't have a cover yet. BUT ANYWAY I KNOW I'LL LOVE IT. :)

So what are YOU waiting for this week? 


  1. I CAN'T WAIT FOR THIS BOOK EITHER!!! And I haven't read The Collector yet, either (as you said, obviously), but I'm kind of curious to see how there could be a guy HOTTER than Dante? Goodness. I can't wait!

    And, um, speaking of Dante, check out my WoW: http://justabooklover.blogspot.com/2012/10/waiting-on-wednesday-11.html
