Waiting On Wednesday (45) The Haven by Carol Lynch Williams

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly blog post hosted by Breaking The Spine. For this week's Waiting On Wednesday I chose *drumroll* The Haven by Carol Lynch Williams.

(The Haven)

Author: Carol Lynch Williams

For the teens at The Haven, the outside world, just beyond the towering stone wall that surrounds the premises, is a dangerous unknown. It has always been this way, ever since the hospital was established in the year 2020. But The Haven is more than just a hospital; it is their home. It is all they know. Everything is strictly monitored: education, exercise, food, and rest. The rules must be followed to keep the children healthy, to help control the Disease that has cast them as Terminals, the Disease that claims limbs and lungs—and memories.

But Shiloh is different; she remembers everything. Gideon is different, too. He dreams of a cure, of rebellion against the status quo. What if everything they’ve been told is a lie? What if The Haven is not the safe place it claims to be? And what will happen if Shiloh starts asking dangerous questions?

Why Am I Waiting
Sometimes it truly just comes down to a book sounding good. The aspect of The Haven sorta reminds me of the town from The Forests of Hands and Teeth so I suppose that plays a part into why I'm intrigued by this one. Plus who doesn't like Dystopians with a Viral twist, I know I do!!

Out of curiosity, Have you heard of The Haven? If so, Do you plan on reading it? What do you think of the premise? Let me Know In The Comments Below! I love reading your responses.


That about wraps up my Waiting on Wednesday for this week. Feel free to leave me the link to your Wednesday memes so I can check them out as well!


  1. Love dystopians with a viral twist! I just know there is more going on with why these kids are locked up and what is going on outside of The Haven!
    My WOW

    1. Yep, you just know something sinister is probably behind it.

  2. Oh i love dystopians with a viral twist!! :) This one is new for me so I'm really curious about it :) I can't wait to see reviews for it. Great pick.

    Our WoW

  4. I haven't heard of The Haven. It sounds great, but I'm so dystopian leery now. I'll pick it up if gets some great reviews. :)

  5. I actually haven't heard of this before, so thanks for bringing it to my attention. It does sorta have a TFoHaT vibe to it, doesn't it? I'm trying not to add any more dystopians to my TBR because it is so ripe with that sub-genre already, but sometimes, a book just sounds too good to pass up. :) Thanks for sharing & stopping by my WoW! Happy Wednesday! :D

    1. Aye, it does. I'm always on the lookout for more Dystopians as I quite like the genre but its becoming harder and harder to find one with romance mixed into it and that makes me sad :(
