Can’t Wait Wednesday: Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo

Can’t Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings and spotlights upcoming releases.

Ninth House by Leigh BardugoGalaxy “Alex” Stern is the most unlikely member of Yale’s freshman class. Raised in the Los Angeles hinterlands by a hippie mom, Alex dropped out of school early and into a world of shady drug dealer boyfriends, dead-end jobs, and much, much worse. By age twenty, in fact, she is the sole survivor of a horrific, unsolved multiple homicide. Some might say she’s thrown her life away. But at her hospital bed, Alex is offered a second chance: to attend one of the world’s most elite universities on a full ride. What’s the catch, and why her?

Still searching for answers to this herself, Alex arrives in New Haven tasked by her mysterious benefactors with monitoring the activities of Yale’s secret societies. These eight windowless “tombs” are well-known to be haunts of the future rich and powerful, from high-ranking politicos to Wall Street and Hollywood’s biggest players. But their occult activities are revealed to be more sinister and more extraordinary than any paranoid imagination might conceive.

Why I Can’t Wait:

I’ve loved all of Leigh Bardugo’s books so I’m excited to read her newest offering, an adult urban fantasy. The description sounds intriguing and I’m desperate to get my hands on a copy. I’ve already pre-ordered the Waterstones signed special edition.

Release Date: 01 October 2019

    Yes, this one is definitely high up on my OMG do I really have to wait list 😀 I’m very curious to see how her writing style shifts when writing adult fantasy rather than YA 😀
