Waiting On Wednesday: Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo


"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking The Spine where we highlight some of the upcoming books we can't wait to read! 

Title: Ninth House
Author: Leigh Bardugo
Genre: YA/NA Contemporary Fantasy 
Publisher: Flatiron Books 
Publication Date: Oct. 1st, 2109


Summary: 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. By age twenty, in fact, 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 elite universities on a full ride. What’s the catch, and why her?
Still searching for answers to this herself, Alex arrives in New Haven tasked by her mysterious benefactors with monitoring the activities of Yale’s secret societies. These eight windowless “tombs” are well-known to be haunts of the future rich and powerful, from high-ranking politicos to Wall Street and Hollywood’s biggest players. But their occult activities are revealed to be more sinister and more extraordinary than any paranoid imagination might conceive.

Believe it or not, I've never read anything by Leigh Bardugo. Don't ask me why cause I don't know. This summary really stuck out to me and I'm intrigued by the mention of secret societies. I'm hoping this takes a fantasy twist as well. Can't wait to get my hands on this!
