Waiting On Wednesday: Hachette Fall 2015 Catalog

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking The Spine in which upcoming, eagerly anticipated releases are highlighted on the blog.

This week, I've chosen to feature a few picks from the Hachette Fall 2015 Catalog:

Career of Evil (Cormoran Strike #3) by Robert Galbraith
Date: October 20, 2015
Add to Goodreads

When a mysterious package is delivered to Robin Ellacott, she is horrified to discover that it contains a woman’s severed leg.
Her boss, private detective Cormoran Strike, is less surprised but no less alarmed. There are four people from his past who he thinks could be responsible – and Strike knows that any one of them is capable of sustained and unspeakable brutality.
With the police focusing on the one suspect Strike is increasingly sure is not the perpetrator, he and Robin take matters into their own hands, and delve into the dark and twisted worlds of the other three men. But as more horrendous acts occur, time is running out for the two of them…
Career of Evil is the third in the highly acclaimed series featuring private detective Cormoran Strike and his assistant Robin Ellacott. A fiendishly clever mystery with unexpected twists around every corner, it is also a gripping story of a man and a woman at a crossroads in their personal and professional lives.
Cormoran Strike is back, with his assistant Robin Ellacott, in a mystery based around soldiers returning from war.

New Cormoran Strike coming our way from Queen Jo!! I'm SO excited for Career of Evil because the first two mysteries in the Cormoran Strike Series were fantastic. Plus, I'm really curious where Cormoran and Robin's story will go next!


Wolf By Wolf by Ryan Graudin
Date: October 20, 2015
Add to Goodreads

The year is 1956, and the Axis powers of the Third Reich and Imperial Japan rule the world. To commemorate their Great Victory over Britain and Russia, Hitler and Emperor Hirohito host the Axis Tour: an annual motorcycle race across their conjoined continents. The victor is awarded an audience with the highly reclusive Adolf Hitler at the Victor's ball.
Yael, who escaped from a death camp, has one goal: Win the race and kill Hitler. A survivor of painful human experimentation, Yael has the power to skinshift and must complete her mission by impersonating last year's only female victor, Adele Wolfe. This deception becomes more difficult when Felix, Adele twin's brother, and Luka, her former love interest, enter the race and watch Yael's every move. But as Yael begins to get closer to the other competitors, can she bring herself to be as ruthless as she needs to be to avoid discovery and complete her mission?

An alternate universe in which the Axis won World War II instead of the Allies? Colour me intrigued. Wolf By Wolf has been getting some great buzz and has been compared to Code Name Verity and Inglourious Basterds (two of my faves) so I'm definitely looking forward to this one!


Manners & Mutiny (Finishing School #4) by Gail Carriger
Date: November 3, 2015
Add to Goodreads


When a dastardly Pickleman plot comes to fruition, only Sophronia can save her friends, her school, and all of London...but at what cost? Our proper young heroine puts her training and skills to the test in this highly anticipated conclusion of the rousing, intriguing, and always polished New York Times bestselling Finishing School series!

That's a very short synopsis for Manners & Mutiny - maybe the publisher doesn't want to reveal too much about the finale to the beloved Finishing School Series? Whatever the reason, I'm looking forward to getting back to Sophronia and the gang for one last round of espionage!


How about you? Are you waiting on any of these Hachette Fall 2015 reads? Are there any upcoming books from the Hachette Fall 2015 Catalog that I didn't include here that you feel I should add to my list?

  1. Woohoo! These fall titles look great. I'm actually not all too interested to read Rowling's books under her pseudonym, but I'm glad you're excited for those books :) I AM excited for WOLF BY WOLF though, I've been hearing amazing things from other authors! And now that the finale to the Finishing School series is coming out, I can finally binge read - yay!

  5. Wolf by Wolf sounds AMAZING. Gonna add that to my weekly booklist -- I post about them every sunday or so. I've just listened to the audiobook of The Cuckoo's Calling and i'm going to have to get my butt in gear to finish the second in time for the third one! I swear it still feels like she just released Cuckoo's calling! here's mine

  6. Is it terrible that I haven't started the Cormoran Strike series yet? I have been meaning to for so long but I just haven't for some reason! I need to pick up a copy of The Cuckoo's Calling really soon. And ooh I had no idea the Finishing School series was ending! I loved the first book, so I'll need to catch up before book 4. Great picks! :)

  15. Manners and Mutiny! I am so. Excited. Aylee, seriously. I don't know what I'll feel by the end of it, because that third book ended so epically and I didn't expect that by book 3 I would be so in love with all the characters, particularly... well. Everyone. I love that Sophronia has that conflict, too, about "causing" her teacher to lose his mind, because it adds so much to the reality of her character.
    Other than that, the other two are new to me. I still haven't read any Cormorant Strike, but plan to, and Wolf by Wolf sounds intriguing. xx
