Ashley: Although there are a few books on my Fall TBR shelf, I want to focus on one for right now. As challenging as that is. If you've read Leigh Bardugo's, the Grisha Series, then you must understand why I am pumped for this book to come out at the beginning of next month!! Although it has nothing to do with the Grisha world, it's written by Leigh, who is magnificent. She is in my top favorite authors, right now sitting at number one!! Her books took me on a journey that I'm not ready to forget. I am excited to see what new world she will take us to with her book, the Ninth House!!. I will post a description below describing what this book is about.
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. In fact, by age twenty, 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 prestigious universities on a full ride. What’s the catch, and why her?
Still searching for answers, Alex arrives in New Haven tasked by her mysterious benefactors with monitoring the activities of Yale’s secret societies. Their eight windowless “tombs” are the well-known haunts of the rich and powerful, from high-ranking politicos to Wall Street’s biggest players. But their occult activities are more sinister and more extraordinary than any paranoid imagination might conceive. They tamper with forbidden magic. They raise the dead. And, sometimes, they prey on the living.
Sarah: I have to completely agree on this one. I think it is going to be the perfect mix for the Halloween Season! I actually preordered a special Waterstone Edition. So excited!!!! There are a few other books I plan to read in Fall to go along with this question! One of them is Flamecaster by Cinda Williams Chima and hoping to continue that series~
