Can't Wait Wednesday - Hell Bent

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about.  However, as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

Today’s selection and book I’m excitedly awaiting is:

Hell Bent by Leigh Bardugo

Hell Bent (Alex Stern #2)

by Leigh Bardugo
Adult Fiction – Fantasy
January 10th, 2023

Alex Stern returns in another tale of murder and dark magic set among the Ivy League elite…

Galaxy “Alex” Stern is determined to break Darlington out of hell—even if it costs her a future at Lethe and at Yale. But Alex is playing with forces far beyond her control, and when faculty members begin to die off, she knows these aren’t just accidents. Something deadly is at work in New Haven, and if Alex is going to survive, she’ll have to reckon with the monsters of her past and a darkness built into the university’s very walls.

I’m not exactly a fan of the cover, but I am super excited for the release of the sequel to Ninth House (aka one of my all-time favorites)! Bring on the Alex, Dawes and Darlington epicness <3

Tell Me:
Will you be reading this book?

  1. The Ninth House is on my TBR but this cover is almost enough to make me not read the first one haha (almost but not quite) Its pretty terrible, I’ll have to read it on Kindle or buy a cover for it!

    1. Haha I completely understand, but the first book is one of my absolute faves, so I’d recommend reading it on Kindle indeed (or covering up the cover) 🙂

  2. I’m really excited for this sequel as well. The cover is awful!

    1. Me too! And yes, the cover is awful!

  3. That cover is.. a little creepy! But I hope the story is great!

    1. Me too!

  4. I don’t like that cover. That poor, dead rabbit. 🙁

    1. Same, it’s an awful cover, but I hope the book will be amazing.

  5. Not gonna lie, that cover freaks me out more than a little.
