Can't-Wait Wednesday: The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab & Over the Woodward Wall by A. Deborah Baker

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.

October is yet another huge month for publishing releases, which means I'm going to once again be sharing three releases for my Can't-Wait Wednesday's this month!

This week's upcoming book spotlights are: 

The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue
The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab
Publication: October 6th, 2020
Tor Books
Hardcover. 448 pages.

"A Life No One Will Remember. A Story You Will 

Never Forget. France, 1714: in a moment of desperation, a young woman makes a Faustian bargain to live forever and is cursed to be forgotten by everyone she meets. 

Thus begins the extraordinary life of Addie LaRue, and a dazzling adventure that will play out across centuries and continents, across history and art, as a young woman learns how far she will go to leave her mark on the world. 

But everything changes when, after nearly 300 years, Addie stumbles across a young man in a hidden bookstore and he remembers her name."
I've actually just finished an ARC of this one and really enjoyed it! However, I'm still really looking forward to its release because I know the finished copy is going to be gorgeous and I can't wait to see it, as well as hear everyone else's opinion on this book!

Over the Woodward Wall
Over the Woodward Wall by A. Deborah Baker
Publication: October 6th, 2020
Hardcover. 208 pages.

"Writing as A. Deborah Baker, New York Times bestselling and award-winning author Seanan McGuire introduces readers to a world of talking trees and sarcastic owls, of dangerous mermaids and captivating queens in Over the Woodward Wall, an exceptional tale for readers who are young at heart. 

If you trust her you’ll never make it home… 

Avery is an exceptional child. Everything he does is precise, from the way he washes his face in the morning, to the way he completes his homework – without complaint, without fuss, without prompt. 

Zib is also an exceptional child, because all children are, in their own way. But where everything Avery does and is can be measured, nothing Zib does can possibly be predicted, except for the fact that she can always be relied upon to be unpredictable. 

They live on the same street. 
They live in different worlds. 

On an unplanned detour from home to school one morning, Avery and Zib find themselves climbing over a stone wall into the Up and Under – an impossible land filled with mystery, adventure and the strangest creatures. 

And they must find themselves and each other if they are to also find their way out and back to their own lives."
How many pseudonyms does Seanan McGuire/Mira Grant have?? I thought this book sounds so interesting when I first saw it, and then I realized it was Seanan McGuire's pseudonym and my intrigue was raised even further.

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


  1. Addie LaRue sounds really good - I haven't actually finished one of Schwab's books, but I have high hopes for this one!

  2. I've got eARCs of both of these and I'm super excited! Over the Woodward Wall is actually the "book within a book" from Middlegame, so it might make more sense if you've read that first. But I could be wrong, I'll let you know!

    1. Ohhhh, see that makes so much more sense now! I actually feel like I recall people talking about there being a book from Middlegame, I'm curious to hear more about it. That just reminds me I need to get to Middlegame!

  3. I always love V.E. Schwab's books! So that Invisible book looks really good! Great pick!

    Here’s my WoW!
