Can’t Wait Wednesday – NINTH HOUSE by Leigh Bardugo


“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 Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo.  From the moment I read the Six of Crows duology, I fell in love with Bardugo’s storytelling.  My love for her writing only grew as I then went back and read the Grishaverse trilogy.  She’s now an auto-buy author for me and I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us with her first adult series.  It sounds amazing!


NINTH HOUSE by Leigh Bardugo

Publication Date:  October 1, 2019



From Goodreads:

The mesmerizing adult debut from #1 New York Times bestselling author Leigh Bardugo.

Galaxy “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.

      Sorry to hear SoC wasn’t the best read for you. The synopsis for this one has me thinking it might become my favorite Bardugo novel.

      I enjoy Bardugo’s writing so much that I think I’d read anything she wrote no matter what genre it was. Well, maybe not horror because I’m a chicken, lol.

    I’d be more excited if I didn’t have to look at that snake and it seems every week someone is featuring it. Seriously though it does sound great. And as long as I get an ebook, I won’t have to look at the cover much.

    I’ve never been interested in reading anything by this author before. I didn’t know she had an adult contemporary in the works. I hope you enjoy reading it.

    I’m so not patiently awaiting Ninth House. I would basically beg for this book lol. Also, that cover is so so pretty and clever and it just screams mystery and ambition and passion. I am so ready to fall in love with this novel.
