Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings based on Waiting on Wednesday that was created and run by Breaking the Spine where each Wednesday you get to showcase a book that you are really looking forward to and that has yet to be released.
This week I’ve chosen:
The Last House on Needless Street by Catriona Ward.
This is the story of a serial killer. A stolen child. Revenge. Death.
And an ordinary house at the end of an ordinary street.
All these things are true. And yet they are all lies…
You think you know what’s inside the last house on Needless Street. You think you’ve read this story before. That’s where you’re wrong.
In the dark forest at the end of Needless Street, lies something buried. But it’s not what you think…
I’ve seen this book around on Twitter, it is garnering praise from Stephen King down to
lowly awesome bloggers and everyone is raving about it. Honestly, it sounds absolutely awesome and deliciously dark. You could say that Needless Street sounds like something that will be right up my street – apologies for the terrible wordplay, I can hear you groaning through the blog post. 😉
The Last House on Needless Street is published by Viper Books in the UK and scheduled for release on March 18th, 2021 and is being released in the US by Nightfire sometime in October 2021.
