Waiting On Wednesday ... Ninth House

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pick is Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo

Here is the Goodreads synopsis
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.
I am a huge fan of anything Leigh Bardugo writes and was incredibly intrigued when I heard about her first foray into adult fiction. It's about secret societies and that would have been enough for me to read it all on its own. They, however, also released this amazing synopsis and incredible cover and now I am fully obsessed. It sounds amazing and I am going to impatiently be waiting for October when I can get my hands on this one.

It's basically a perfect spooky season read and I cannot wait to pair this with a pumpkin spice chai latte and a cozy blanket.

Expected release date - October 1, 2019

I have decided to make this an awards free blog. I appreciate the gesture, and love that you thought of my blog, however I simply can't pass them along as required.
