Waiting on Wednesday 05/19/21
Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that first originated at Breaking the Spine but has since linked up with “Can’t Wait Wednesday” at Wishful Endings now that the original creator is unable to host it anymore. Either way, this fun feature is a chance to showcase the upcoming releases that we can’t wait to get our hands on!
Cackle by Rachel Harrison (October 5, 2021 by Berkley)
As you may recall, last year I reviewed Rachel Harrison’s debut The Return and liked it a lot, and I’m excited to hear she’ll have a new book out later this year, and it sounds awesome!
“A darkly funny, frightening novel about a young woman learning how to take what she wants from a witch who may be too good to be true, from the author of The Return.
All her life, Annie has played it nice and safe. After being unceremoniously dumped by her longtime boyfriend, Annie seeks a fresh start. She accepts a teaching position that moves her from Manhattan to a small village upstate. She’s stunned by how perfect and picturesque the town is. The people are all friendly and warm. Her new apartment is dreamy too, minus the oddly persistent spider infestation.
Then Annie meets Sophie. Beautiful, charming, magnetic Sophie, who takes a special interest in Annie, who wants to be her friend. More importantly, she wants Annie to stop apologizing and start living for herself. That’s how Sophie lives. Annie can’t help but gravitate toward the self-possessed Sophie, wanting to spend more and more time with her, despite the fact that the rest of the townsfolk seem…a little afraid of her. And like, okay. There are some things. Sophie’s appearance is uncanny and ageless, her mansion in the middle of the woods feels a little unearthly, and she does seem to wield a certain power…but she couldn’t be…could she?”
Oooo I’m intrigued
Spider infestation! (((shudder))) 😀
Ooh nice! I saw this one not too long ago and was intrigued! Especially with that cover! Hope you love this one once you get to read it!
Here’s my WoW
Have a GREAT day!
Old Follower 🙂
What a great title, cover, and intro blurb! The spider problem brought back memories of Arachnophobia, loved that movie. 🙂
I’m really curious about this one, I haven’t read this author before.
Oooh that seems an interesting one!
I love the sound of this one. Definitely keep my eye out for it – and an October publication date – you have to read about witches in October.
