Can't-Wait Wednesday: The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow & The Tenth Girl by Sara Faring

Can't-Wait is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings that spotlights exciting upcoming releases that we can't wait to be released! This meme is based off of Jill @ Breaking the Spine's Waiting on Wednesday meme.

This week's upcoming book spotlights are: 

The Ten Thousand Doors of January
The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow
Publication: September 10th, 2019
Hardcover. 384 pages.

"In the early 1900s, a young woman embarks on a fantastical journey of self-discovery after finding a mysterious book in this captivating and lyrical debut. 

In a sprawling mansion filled with peculiar treasures, January Scaller is a curiosity herself. As the ward of the wealthy Mr. Locke, she feels little different from the artifacts that decorate the halls: carefully maintained, largely ignored, and utterly out of place. 

Then she finds a strange book. A book that carries the scent of other worlds, and tells a tale of secret doors, of love, adventure and danger. Each page turn reveals impossible truths about the world and January discovers a story increasingly entwined with her own."
So...I planned out this CWW before I knew I'd be getting an early copy of it and now I've already finished, but I am still so excited to see it published and out in the wild where everyone can read it! It's a truly beautiful story.

The Tenth Girl
The Tenth Girl by Sara Faring
Publication: September 24th, 2019
Hardcover. 464 pages.

"Simmering in Patagonian myth, The Tenth Girl is a gothic psychological thriller with a haunting twist. 

At the very southern tip of South America looms an isolated finishing school. Legend has it that the land will curse those who settle there. But for Mavi—a bold Buenos Aires native fleeing the military regime that took her mother—it offers an escape to a new life as a young teacher to Argentina’s elite girls. 

Mavi tries to embrace the strangeness of the imposing house—despite warnings not to roam at night, threats from an enigmatic young man, and rumors of mysterious Others. But one of Mavi’s ten students is missing, and when students and teachers alike begin to behave as if possessed, the forces haunting this unholy cliff will no longer be ignored. 

One of these spirits holds a secret that could unravel Mavi's existence. In order to survive she must solve a cosmic mystery—and then fight for her life."
Apparently 'tens' are the theme of September this year! I am so entranced by how spooky this sounds--an "isolated finishing school" at the tip of South American!? Patagonian myth? Others? I can't wait to read this!
