Waiting on Wednesday #59: This Splintered Silence by Kayla Olson!

Hi everyone! Welcome to another "Waiting on Wednesday" post (meme hosted by Breaking the Spine!). 

This week I am waiting on:

This Splintered Silence by Kayla Olson
November 13th, 2018, HarperTeen
YA Sci-Fi
Pre-order: Book Depository Amazon
Lindley Hamilton has been the leader of the space station Lusca since every first-generation crew member on board, including her mother, the commander, were killed by a deadly virus.

Lindley always assumed she’d captain the Lusca one day, but she never thought that day would come so soon. And she never thought it would be like this—struggling to survive every day, learning how to keep the Lusca running, figuring out how to communicate with Earth, making sure they don’t run out of food.

When a member of the surviving second generation dies from symptoms that look just like the deadly virus, though, Lindley feels her world shrinking even smaller. The disease was supposed to be over; the second generation was supposed to be immune. But as more people die, Lindley must face the terrifying reality that either the virus has mutated or something worse is happening: one of their own is a killer.
NEW KAYLA OLSON BOOK!!!!! I ADORED Kayla Olson's debut novel, The Sandcastle Empire, and I honestly cannot wait to read more from her. Kayla has this way with words that HOOK you and somehow make you fall into the novel and never wanting to let go. *sigh*

Ack, I'm seriously so excited for this novel! And it's SCI-FI. I'm not much of a sci-fi reader but I would read anything by this author. ♥♥♥


What are you waiting on this week? :)


  1. Ooh, sounds interesting! I hadn't heard of this one, I'll have to check it out. :) Great pick!
