Can’t Wait Wednesday | Ace of Spades – Faridah Abike-Iyimide

We wanted to do another bookish meme on Wednesday and after doing Can’t Wait Wednesday a few times we decided that would be a fun one to bring around more often! About twice a month you’ll see this meme on our blog.

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

An incendiary and utterly compelling thriller with a shocking twist that delves deep into the heart of institutionalised racism, from an exceptional new YA voice. Welcome to Niveus Private Academy, where money paves the hallways, and the students are never less than perfect. Until now. Because anonymous texter, Aces, is bringing two students’ dark secrets to light. Talented musician Devon buries himself in rehearsals, but he can’t escape the spotlight when his private photos go public. Head girl Chiamaka isn’t afraid to get what she wants, but soon everyone will know the price she has paid for power. Someone is out to get them both. Someone who holds all the aces. And they’re planning much more than a high-school game…

Honestly, this one just sounds awesome! I was super close to ordering a Debut Box from Illumicrate with this book in it because I’m certain this will be a book I’ll love. But I have to keep a close eye on my money haha, so no boxes for me. It was hard though!

I think this is going to be a very compelling thriller and a super fast read. The private school setting is always interesting and I think the focus on institutionalised racism might be eye-opening for readers. I also love the cover! Usually I’m not a big fan of people on covers but this one is subtle yet beautiful. I also love the vibe. 

For me this sounds like a book I will love! And I can’t wait to get my hands on it. Do you plan on reading this thriller? Let me know in the comments!
