Can’t Wait Wednesday – SADIE by Courtney Summers


“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about.  It is a meme that I have  loved participating in for over a year now, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll just be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is SADIE by Courtney Summers.  I saw this book featured on Netgalley recently and thought it sounded incredible.  Those who know my taste in books know that I love a book that features siblings anyway, but the idea of one sibling going on a mission of revenge to bring the other sibling’s killer to justice?  Wow!  It especially got to me when I saw that the main character Sadie had been practically raising her younger sister, Mattie.  You just know this is going to be an intense and heartwrenching read and I’m totally on board for it.


SADIE by Courtney Summers

Publication Date:  September 4, 2018


From Goodreads:

A gripping novel about the depth of a sister’s love; poised to be the next book you won’t be able to stop talking about.

A missing girl on a journey of revenge and a Serial-like podcast following the clues she’s left behind.

Sadie hasn’t had an easy life. Growing up on her own, she’s been raising her sister Mattie in an isolated small town, trying her best to provide a normal life and keep their heads above water.

But when Mattie is found dead, Sadie’s entire world crumbles. After a somewhat botched police investigation, Sadie is determined to bring her sister’s killer to justice and hits the road following a few meager clues to find him.

When West McCray—a radio personality working on a segment about small, forgotten towns in America—overhears Sadie’s story at a local gas station, he becomes obsessed with finding the missing girl. He starts his own podcast as he tracks Sadie’s journey, trying to figure out what happened, hoping to find her before it’s too late.

Courtney Summers has written the breakout book of her career. Sadie is propulsive and harrowing and will keep you riveted until the last page.

    I like stories about siblings, too, and the tension and action seems like it’s at a whole different level here!

    I really want to read this one too! I’ve only read one Courtney Summers book, but I want to read pretty much everything she’s written – it all sounds great. 🙂

    Blimey! This one sounds brilliant – and harrowing. I’m also featuring a murder mystery, but I think mine is a lot gentler… at least I hope so:). Enjoy the rest of your week, Suzanne:)

      This will be my first read from Summers. I’ve heard great things about her too though so I definitely plan to check out her other books if I end up liking this one.

    Oh my gosh I need this, just based on the previous book I’ve read by her. I know it’s totally different but I was impressed enough by that one that I want this now! Intense for sure, and sibling revenge? Yes please.

      This will be my first time reading anything from her, so if I like it, I’ll have to give All the Rage a try 🙂
