Can't Wait Wednesday(96): Not Even Bones & The Last Time I Lied

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted here, at 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 the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Title: Not Even Bones
Author:  Rebecca Schaeffer
Release Date: Sept 4,2018
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt

Dexter meets This Savage Song in this dark fantasy about a girl who sells magical body parts on the black market — until she’s betrayed.

Nita doesn’t murder supernatural beings and sell their body parts on the internet—her mother does that. Nita just dissects the bodies after they’ve been “acquired.” But when her mom brings home a live specimen, Nita decides she wants out — dissecting living people is a step too far.

But when she tries to save her mother’s victim, she ends up sold on the black market in his place — because Nita herself is a supernatural being. Now Nita is on the other side of the bars, and there is no line she won’t cross to escape and make sure no one can ever capture her again.  

Nita did a good deed, and it cost her everything. Now she’s going to do a lot of bad deeds to get it all back.

As a fan of characters with morals of grey this book scream right up my alley!!!

Title: The Last Time I Lied 
Author: Riley Sager
Release Date: July 3rd, 2018
Publisher: Dutton

Two Truths and a Lie. The girls played it all the time in their tiny cabin at Camp Nightingale. Vivian, Natalie, Allison, and first-time camper Emma Davis, the youngest of the group. The games ended when Emma sleepily watched the others sneak out of the cabin in the dead of night. The last she--or anyone--saw of them was Vivian closing the cabin door behind her, hushing Emma with a finger pressed to her lips.

Now a rising star in the New York art scene, Emma turns her past into paintings--massive canvases filled with dark leaves and gnarled branches that cover ghostly shapes in white dresses. The paintings catch the attention of Francesca Harris-White, the socialite and wealthy owner of Camp Nightingale. When Francesca implores her to return to the newly reopened camp as a painting instructor, Emma sees an opportunity to try to find out what really happened to her friends.

Yet it's immediately clear that all is not right at Camp Nightingale. Already haunted by memories from fifteen years ago, Emma discovers a security camera pointed directly at her cabin, mounting mistrust from Francesca and, most disturbing of all, cryptic clues Vivian left behind about the camp's twisted origins. As she digs deeper, Emma finds herself sorting through lies from the past while facing threats from both man and nature in the present.

And the closer she gets to the truth about Camp Nightingale, the more she realizes it may come at a deadly price. 

I love the cover, and it seems so dark and scary! I love camping, and scary stories just not at the same time in real life but this is going to be a treat! 

These are the books we're excited for, drop a comment below and let us know what you're waiting for!! 


  1. I NEED Not Even yesterday. I have an arc of the Riley Sager book and after seeing some people like it better than Final Girls, I'm both excited and scared.

  2. Not Even Bones is on my tbr. It looks kind of chilling, but the synopsis feels more urban fantasy to me. I hope we both love it, and you love The Last Time I Lied as well!
