is a weekly event that was originally hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This meme is a place that spotlights upcoming releases that we´re eagerly anticipating with pure joy.

There are a lot of new books coming out each year and some of them catch my attention and will get a spotlight in my Waiting on Wednesday post. While some of them will finally end up here at my place, others won´t. I am joining Tressa at Wishful Endings and her meme Can´t-Wait Wednesday.

I am planning on reading Ash Princess soon. So why not wait for this one with curiosity and hope, that both will excite me and give me a good time while reading? And the cover is just beautiful. Don´t you think?

And sorry for being a bit late with my post. Somehow I thought I had it posted earlier this morning, but apparently, that wasn´t the case.

Ash Princess Trilogy #2
Publishing Date February 5, 2019
Publisher Delacorte Press
Format Hardcover

The Kaiser murdered Theodosia´s mother, the Fire Queen when Theo was only six. He took Theo´s country and kept her prisoner, crowning her Ash Princess – a pet to toy with and humiliate for ten long years. That era has ended. The Kaiser thought his prisoner weak and defenseless. He didn´t realize that a sharp mind is the deadliest weapon. Theo no longer wears a crown of ashes. She has taken back her rightful title, and a hostage – Prinz Soren. But her people remain enslaved under the Kaiser´s rule, and now she is thousands of miles away from them and her throne. To get them back she will need an army. Only, securing an army means she must trust her aunt, the dreaded pirate Dragonsbane. And according to Dragonsbane, an army can only be produced if Theo takes a husband. Something an Astrean Queen has never done. Theo knows that freedom comes at a price, but she is determined to find a way to save her country without losing herself. 

And what are you waiting for? Let me know your thoughts about this one or leave me the link to your WoW and I check it out.
