Can't-Wait Wednesday: Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia, Sisters of Sword and Song by Rebecca Ross, & Seasons of the Storm by Elle Cosimano

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: 

Mexican Gothic
Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia
Publication: June 30th, 2020
Del Rey
Hardcover. 352 pages.

"He is trying to poison me. You must come for me, Noemí. You have to save me.

After receiving a frantic letter from her newly-wed cousin begging for someone to save her from a mysterious doom, Noemí Taboada heads to High Place, a distant house in the Mexican countryside. She’s not sure what she will find -- her cousin’s husband, a handsome Englishman, is a stranger, and Noemí knows little about the region. 

Noemí is also an unlikely rescuer: She’s a glamorous debutante, and her chic gowns and perfect red lipstick are more suited for cocktail parties than amateur sleuthing. But she’s also tough, smart, and has an indomitable will, and she is not afraid: Not of her cousin’s new husband, who is both menacing and alluring; not of his father, the ancient patriarch who seems to be fascinated by Noemí; and not even of the house itself, which begins to invade Noemi’s dreams with visions of blood and doom. 

Her only ally in this inhospitable abode is the family’s youngest son. Shy and gentle, he seems to want to help Noemí, but might also be hiding dark knowledge of his family’s past. For there are many secrets behind the walls of High Place. The family’s once colossal wealth and faded mining empire kept them from prying eyes, but as Noemí digs deeper she unearths stories of violence and madness. 

And Noemí, mesmerized by the terrifying yet seductive world of High Place, may soon find it impossible to ever leave this enigmatic house behind."
This is one where I read the ARC already a little while back, but I really loved it and am so excited to see what the finished copy looks like because I know it's going to be beautiful!

Sisters of Sword and Song
Sisters of Sword and Song by Rebecca Ross
Publication: June 23rd, 2020
Hardcover. 432 pages.

"After eight long years, Evadne will finally be reunited with her older sister, Halcyon, who has been proudly serving in the queen’s army. But when Halcyon appears earlier than expected, Eva knows something has gone terribly wrong. Halcyon is on the run, hunted by her commander and charged with murder. 

Though Halcyon’s life is spared during her trial, the punishment is heavy. And when Eva volunteers to serve part of Halcyon’s sentence, she’s determined to find out exactly what happened. But as Eva begins her sentence, she quickly learns that there are fates much worse than death."
This sounds like it's going to be quite an adventure, and I really love the cover for it also. I'm also excited for more stories with prominent sibling relationships, and this sounds like it will create a particularly interesting dynamic!

Seasons of the Storm (Seasons of the Storm, #1)
Seasons of the Storm by Elle Cosimano
Publication: June 23rd, 2020
Hardcover. 480 pages.
Pre-order: Amazon | Book Depository | IndieBound

"One cold, crisp night, Jack Sommers was faced with a choice—live forever according to the ancient, magical rules of Gaia, or die. 

Jack chose to live, and in exchange, he became a Winter—an immortal physical embodiment of the season on Earth. Every year, he must hunt the Season who comes before him. Summer kills Spring. Autumn kills Summer. Winter kills Autumn. And Spring kills Winter. 

Jack and Fleur, a Winter and a Spring, fall for each other against all odds. To be together, they’ll have to escape the cycle that’s been forcing them apart. But their creator won’t let them go without a fight."
I am really excited about the concept behind this book and how the seasons work. I'm not sure how I feel about the romance angle, but I'm hoping that the author works it into the story in a really well-written and interesting way.

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


  1. I actually preordered Mexican Gothic, which is basically unheard of for me, to preorder from an author I've never read before! I'm excited!

  2. I am so excited to dive into Mexican Gothic! I was going to wait a bit since it doesn't come out till the end of June, but I'm not sure I can😁

  3. Mexican Gothic is one I’m pretty excited for too! I have Seasons of the Storm coming up to read soon, I’m hoping it is just as good as it sounds. Sisters of Sword and Sing sounds amazing!
