Can’t Wait Wednesday — 7/16/19

Can’t Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings based on the meme Waiting on Wednesday by Breaking the Spine. In this weekly post people share a book that they’re excited about being released.

I have always loved reading these posts, looking forward at books that people can’t wait for. But I always find that I want a list and it is just one book. So I decided I would share three books that I can’t wait for. If you click on the title of the book it will take you to the book’s Goodreads page.

The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix e Harrow.jpgThe Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E Harrow

Publication Date: 9/10/19

In the summer of 1901, at the age of seven, January Scaller found a Door. You know the kind of door–they lead to Faerie, to Valhalla, to Atlantis, to all the places never found on a map.

Years later, January has forgotten her brief glimpse of Elsewhere. Her life is quiet and lonely but safe on her guardian’s estate, until one day she stumbles across a strange book. A book that carries the scent of other worlds in its pages, and tells a tale of secret doors, of love, adventure, and danger. A book that might lead her back to the half-remembered door of her childhood.

But, as January gets answers to questions she never imagined, shadows creep closer. There are truths about the world that should never be revealed.

This book is a portal fantasy, so I am a little nervous, but really hopeful. The possibility of all these different worlds is a great idea for a story, but I hope that it’s executed well because it’s a lot of world building for one book. I have a physical ARC for this and I can’t wait to get this beauty into my hands. I am trying to keep my expectations low, but the early reviews I have seen already have me excited.

The Good Luck Girls by Charlotte Nicole DavisThe Good Luck Girls by Charlotte Nicole Davis

Publication Date: 10/1/19

Westworld meets The Handmaid’s Tale in this stunning fantasy adventure from debut author Charlotte Nicole Davis.

Aster, the protector
Violet, the favorite
Tansy, the medic
Mallow, the fighter
Clementine, the catalyst

THE GOOD LUCK GIRLS

The country of Arketta calls them Good Luck Girls–they know their luck is anything but. Sold to a “welcome house” as children and branded with cursed markings. Trapped in a life they would never have chosen.

When Clementine accidentally murders a man, the girls risk a dangerous escape and harrowing journey to find freedom, justice, and revenge in a country that wants them to have none of those things. Pursued by Arketta’s most vicious and powerful forces, both human and inhuman, their only hope lies in a bedtime story passed from one Good Luck Girl to another, a story that only the youngest or most desperate would ever believe.

It’s going to take more than luck for them all to survive.

I picked this book up on a whim from Edelweiss because I knew it was a YA fantasy. When I started reading it I didn’t know anything else about it and I had no expectations for it, but WOW this book was amazing. I am really looking forward to this books release because I need everyone to read it. I also can’t wait until it is closer to publication so I can share my review with you guys because this book was not only incredible, but also SO powerful.

Pricked by Scott Mooney.jpgPricked by Scott Mooney

Publication Date: 8/13/19

Briar Pryce has the power to change the emotions of others by handing them a rose. It is a talent that has done surprisingly little for her, besides landing her a dead-end enchantment delivery job and killing any chance she had with her childhood-crush-turned-roommate. Worst of all, her ability might be responsible for getting her best friend transformed into a cat via a cursed muffin basket. Needless to say, Briar is nowhere near happily-ever-after. But that’s just life as a twenty-something in the Poisoned Apple, New York City’s lost borough of fairy-tale wonder and rent-controlled magic.

When Briar reluctantly agrees to help find a princess’s kidnapped boyfriend in exchange for reversing the curse on her friend, she gets the heroic quest she never really wanted. Unfortunately, the life of a noble heroine is not all it’s cracked up­­ to be – the hours blow, and Briar suspect that the Royal family employing her might be evil, Republican, or both. To complete the suckage, a killer smoke magician is stalking Briar as she searches both the Poisoned Apple and Manhattan for the missing boy. As tensions between the Poisoned Apple royalty ignite and civil war looms, Briar must figure out how to write her own happy ending–or she’ll just be ending.

I feel like I’ve gotten away from books like this lately and I really can’t wait to read this book. It looks like a funny fairy tale re-telling kind of book, sort of along the lines of Tear You Apart by Sarah Cross which I loved. It just looks like a fun quick read set in a fairy tale universe and I am really excited to read it. The cover is gorgeous and I am lucky enough to have a physical ARC, so I get to read it early and review it, which is awesome.

    1. Pricked is probably going to be one of those books that I read SUPER fast. You probably missed it because it’s being published by Bleeding Ink Publishing. I emailed and they gave me an ARC without a reply email. It’s so pretty. Since they’re such a small publisher I think I want to look at what they have upcoming incase they have anything good.

      I hope you love Good Luck Girls like I did because I didn’t really expect it to be that amazing at all.

      And I’m gonna check it out now! That’s the book that got me on Orbit’s blogger list!

      1. LOL Yeah that’s why I mentioned it. I read ahead sometimes… But I have so many pre written reviews I could basically not read for all of September and be fine. But I have so many fall ARCs that I have to read ahead.
