Waiting on Wednesday 246


Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and it is a way to show off the books you can't wait to be released!!

This week I chose: 

"Ice Dogs"
by Terry Lynn Johnson
HMH Books for Young Readers
Release Date:  Feb 4, 2014

The following description is from goodreads.com:

Victoria Secord, a 14-year-old Alaskan dogsled racer, loses her way on a routine outing with her dogs. With food gone and temperatures dropping, her survival, and that of her dogs and the mysterious boy she meets in the woods, is entirely up to her.

Author Terry Lynn Johnson is a musher herself and her crackling writing puts readers at the reins as Victoria and Chris experience setbacks, mistakes, and small triumphs in their wilderness adventure.
This sounds so exciting! I just read some of the reviews and readers are raving about it! Plus, how can you not love that cover!?


What are you waiting for this week???

  3. Nope, this one I won't read. Don't do dog stories. I can't stand it if they get hurt or die. And I'm not sure about the whole dog sledding thing. If it's humane or not.
    This isn't my kind of story. Even if you tell me all of them survive, I can't read it. Animals break my heart every time.

  4. I don't think I want to read any stories of winter when it is so cold in Minnesota ;) Sounds interesting though!

  9. I hope you enjoy it, but I don't do dog stories either. Same reason as Buried in Books.

  11. I always loved survival books, but this one looks even better as there aren't v many books about Alaskan dogsled racers.
