Waiting on Wednesday 01/04/23
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!
The Last Heir to Blackwood Library by Hester Fox (April 4, 2023 by Graydon House)
“In post–World War I England, a young woman inherits a mysterious library and must untangle its powerful secrets…
With the stroke of a pen, twenty-three-year-old Ivy Radcliffe becomes Lady Hayworth, owner of a sprawling estate on the Yorkshire moors. Ivy has never heard of Blackwood Abbey, or of the ancient bloodline from which she’s descended. With nothing to keep her in London since losing her brother in the Great War, she warily makes her way to her new home.
The abbey is foreboding, the servants reserved and suspicious. But there is a treasure waiting behind locked doors: a magnificent library. Despite cryptic warnings from the staff, Ivy feels irresistibly drawn to its dusty shelves, where familiar works mingle with strange, esoteric texts. And she senses something else in the library too, a presence that seems to have a will of its own.
Rumors swirl in the village about the abbey’s previous owners, about ghosts and curses, and an enigmatic manuscript at the center of it all. And as events grow more sinister, it will be up to Ivy to uncover the library’s mysteries in order to reclaim her own story—before it vanishes forever.”
A mysterious library hu? Well that certainly sounds alluring!
This is on my TBR too & sounds so good. I have a real weakness for anything that sounds remotely gothic right now 😅
OOh nice! That’s a new to me one! I hope you thoroughly enjoy it once you get to read it!

Oh it looks interesting!
Oh I asked for this one on Netgalley but got denied. It sounds so interesting!
I’m not familiar with Graydon House at all, I’ll have to check them out. This sounds so good!
This sounds absolutely magical.
I confess that I’m a sucker for books with libraries so this appeals to me very much.
I love the sound of this one, Mogsy – books featuring libraries are always a solid favourite with me:)). Thank you for sharing.
That’s certainly a very tempting blurb. Can’t help but be curious about a mysterious library, right?
