Can’t Wait Wednesday | Sign Here – Claudia Lux

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 darkly humorous, surprisingly poignant, and utterly gripping debut novel about a guy who works in Hell (literally) and is on the cusp of a big promotion if only he can get one more member of the wealthy Harrison family to sell their soul.

Peyote Trip has a pretty good gig in the deals department on the fifth floor of Hell. Sure, none of the pens work, the coffee machine has been out of order for a century, and the only drink on offer is Jägermeister, but Pey has a plan—and all he needs is one last member of the Harrison family to sell their soul.

When the Harrisons retreat to the family lake house for the summer, with their daughter Mickey’s precocious new friend, Ruth, in tow, the opportunity Pey has waited a millennium for might finally be in his grasp. And with the help of his charismatic coworker Calamity, he sets a plan in motion.

But things aren’t always as they seem, on Earth or in Hell. And as old secrets and new dangers scrape away at the Harrisons’ shiny surface, revealing the darkness beneath, everyone must face the consequences of their choices. 

They had me at that first sentence! A guy that works in Hell? Sign me up ;). The rest of the synopsis sounds super interesting as well. I’m expecting a really fun story although the book is bigger than I first assumed. With over a 400 pages I expect that it will be a little bit more than just a fun story.

The early reviews are super positive! There aren’t that many yet, but it looks like the book is well received. I have to say, I’m getting more and more excited just looking at this book. One person said it was the good place if it were a thriller. As a big fan of the good place, this made me so happy. I can’t wait to experience this book!

Had you heard of this one yet? Do you plan on reading it? Or have you read an eARC? Let me know in the comments! I would love to hear more opinions about this one.
