Can’t Wait Wednesday – KILLING NOVEMBER by Adriana Mather
“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 at Wishful Endings, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is KILLING NOVEMBER by Adriana Mather. This one caught my eye mainly because I’m always drawn to books that are set in boarding schools and this one is set in a boarding school that sounds pretty unique, to put it mildly. It also sounds like it’s going to a creepy, twisty thriller, which is even more of a bonus!
KILLING NOVEMBER by Adriana Mather
Publication Date: March 26, 2019
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of How to Hang a Witch comes a thriller set at a secretive boarding school where students are trained to carry on family legacies that have built–and toppled–empires.
November is trapped.
At the mysterious Academy Absconditi, a school that’s completely off the grid, there’s no electricity, no internet, and a brutal eye-for-an-eye punishment system. Classes include everything from knife-throwing and poisons to the art of deception. And the other students? All children of the world’s most elite strategists, in training to become assassins, spies, and master manipulators. November Adley doesn’t know why she’s been sent to this place, or the secrets that make up its legacy, but she’ll quickly discover that allies are few in a school where competition is everything. When another student is murdered, all eyes turn to November, who must figure out exactly how she fits in before she is found guilty of the crime…or becomes the killer’s next victim.
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author Adriana Mather comes a captivating thriller that will leave you breathless.
