Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which we share a book that we are eagerly anticipating.
The book I’m picking this week doesn’t have a cover yet, but after meeting Leigh Bardugo last night, I’m really looking forward to this one.
Ninth House (Alex Stern #1) by Leigh Bardugo
The new series centers on Alex Stern, a 20-year-old California high school dropout with a criminal past who is mysteriously offered a second chance as a Yale University freshman. Ninth House, the first book, follows Stern’s freshman year, where she is charged with monitoring Yale’s secret societies, who engage in sinister occult activities.
There is no set release date yet, but hopefully it will be in 2018 and not 2019. Leigh talked about it a little last night and it sounds awesome.
