Waiting On Wednesday #12: The Spindlers by Lauren Oliver

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by  

This is were we get to 'spotlight' books that we are anxiously waiting to be released! The ones that we are dying to get our hands on and read into the wee hours of the night and make our shelves look all pretty :)

by Lauren Oliver 
Release Date: October 2nd, 2012


"When Liza’s younger brother Patrick’s soul is stolen by the evil Spindlers, 
spider-like creatures who live underground, 
she knows she must set out on a heroic quest 
to the world Below to rescue it."


The thought of spiders creeping and crawling around in a book really gave me the {shivers!}

BUT, Lauren Oliver wrote this book!!! 
AND, these are spiders that are evil creatures who can steal souls?! Really??? 

A definite must read!!! 

Oh, and did I mention how much I love the cover too!? 

I need to know more about this book! 
And I wouldn't mind a few spoilers, because of the whole spider thing, going to need to be sure that these things aren't... nightmarish! LOL, yea, I know it's a middle grade book ;) but considering that spiders have even made grown men cry out, one can never be too safe! 

Can't wait!!! 
What are you waiting for???
