Can't-Wait Wednesday: Anyone by Charles Soule & In the Dark by Loreth Anne White

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: 

Anyone by Charles Soule
Publication: December 3rd, 2019
Harper Perennial
Hardcover. 400 pages.

"Inside a barn in Ann Arbor, Michigan, a scientist searching for an Alzheimer’s cure throws a switch—and finds herself mysteriously transported into her husband’s body. What begins as a botched experiment will change her life—and the world—forever… 

Over two decades later, all across the planet, “flash” technology allows individuals the ability to transfer their consciousness into other bodies for specified periods, paid, registered and legal. Society has been utterly transformed by the process, from travel to warfare to entertainment; “Be anyone with Anyone” the tagline of the company offering this ultimate out-of-body experience. But beyond the reach of the law and government regulators is a sordid black market called the darkshare, where desperate “vessels” anonymously rent out their bodies, no questions asked for any purpose - sex, drugs, crime... or worse. 

Anyone masterfully interweaves the present-day story of the discovery and development of the flash with the gritty tale of one woman’s crusade to put an end to the darkness it has brought to the world twenty-five years after its creation. Like Blade Runner crossed with Get Out, Charles Soule’s thought-provoking work of speculative fiction takes us to a world where identity, morality, and technology collide."
I'm always interested in futuristic books that explore the fallout of advanced technology and the sort of possible consequences that could result. Definitely intrigued by this one and I've heard amazing things about The Oracle Year (though I've not yet read it), so I'm looking forward to this one.

In the Dark
In the Dark by Loreth Anne White
Publication: December 1st, 2019
Hardcover. 384 pages.

"A secluded mountain lodge. The perfect getaway. So remote no one will ever find you. 

The promise of a luxury vacation at a secluded wilderness spa has brought together eight lucky guests. But nothing is what they were led to believe. As a fierce storm barrels down and all contact with the outside is cut off, the guests fear that it’s not a getaway. It’s a trap. 

Each one has a secret. Each one has something to hide. And now, as darkness closes in, they all have something to fear—including one another. 

Alerted to the vanished party of strangers, homicide cop Mason Deniaud and search and rescue expert Callie Sutton must brave the brutal elements of the mountains to find them. But even Mason and Callie have no idea how precious time is. Because the clock is ticking, and one by one, the guests of Forest Shadow Lodge are being hunted. For them, surviving becomes part of a diabolical game."
Give me anything 'closed-room' and I'm always here for it! A secluded wilderness setting and And Then There Were None vibes really intrigue me so I hope to change a chance to check this one out sometime!

What do you think about these upcoming releases? What are your anticipated upcoming releases?


  1. I have a copy of Anyone that I hope to get to next month, I adored Soule's last book! Great choices:-)

    1. I believe it was your review of The Oracle Year that made me so interested in it! I hope you love Anyone just as much!

  2. In the Dark sounds awesome! Sign me up for that one :)

  3. These both are new to me and I like the sounds of them, especially In The Dark.

    My CWW

  4. I'm not into the mystery genre but the second one seems good. I like the idea of the first one but I don't read as much Sci-Fi either. Here is my post

    1. I'm not usually a huge mystery genre person, either, but something about In the Dark just sounds compelling, haha. :)

  5. In The Dark sounds awesome, and so does Anyone! OMG, all the possibilities!
