Can’t-Wait Wednesday: The City in the Middle of the Night by Charlie Jane Anders

Can’t-Wait Wednesday, aka Waiting on Wednesday, is a weekly meme originating from Jill at Breaking the Spine and now hosted by Wishful Endings. If you’re interested in participating, stop by Wishful Endings to link up your posts.

tcitmotn-coverSet on a planet that has fully definitive, never-changing zones of day and night, with ensuing extreme climates of endless, frigid darkness and blinding, relentless light, humankind has somehow continued apace — though the perils outside the built cities are rife with danger as much as the streets below.

But in a world where time means only what the ruling government proclaims, and the levels of light available are artificially imposed to great consequence, lost souls and disappeared bodies are shadow-bound and savage, and as common as grains of sand. And one such pariah, sacrificed to the night, but borne up by time and a mysterious bond with an enigmatic beast, will rise to take on the entire planet–before it can crumble beneath the weight of human existence.


Really looking forward to this one! I received a chapter sampler from Charlie Jane Anders back at the Baltimore Book Festival, and after checking out that and listening to her talk about the book, I’m super excited for it. The City in the Middle of the Night comes out February 12th 2019 from Tor Books.

    I think I read an excerpt of a book or short story by her somewhere that made me think I probably wouldn’t do well with her writing style, so I’ll probably sit on this until I see some reviews. I hope you enjoy it though!
