Can’t Wait Wednesday | Even Though I Knew The End – C.L. Polk

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.

A magical detective dives into the affairs of Chicago’s divine monsters to secure a future with the love of her life. This sapphic period piece will dazzle anyone looking for mystery, intrigue, romance, magic, or all of the above.

An exiled augur who sold her soul to save her brother’s life is offered one last job before serving an eternity in hell. When she turns it down, her client sweetens the pot by offering up the one payment she can’t resist―the chance to have a future where she grows old with the woman she loves.

To succeed, she is given three days to track down the White City Vampire, Chicago’s most notorious serial killer. If she fails, only hell and heartbreak await.

I haven’t read anything by C.L. Polk yet, but I’ve heard great things about her previous books and they look like I might enjoy them a lot. This is a novella and I have been enjoying those more and more in recent years. Tordotcom publishes really good novellas and I’m always on the look out for more books by them.

I like detective novels, and I like that this has a fantasy element. With a novella there won’t be too many red herrings, but a good one still brings you a twist you didn’t see coming. I’m excited to see how C.L. Polk does that in this novella.

Do you read a lot of novellas? Was this one on your radar? And do you have any recommendations for me? Let me know in the comments!
