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.

My WoW, this time is the German edition of Vicious by V. E. Schwab. I guess you could translate its title with Vicious-The Evil In Us. Don´t ask me why they had to put the second line to the original title. But it is as it is. If my reading keeps the way it is so far, very slow that is, then there might be a good chance, that this will be the very first book I´ve ever read from the author. Yes, V. E. Schwab is completely new to me, although I am already owning A Darker Shade of Magic. But that one is still on my TBR.

The cover design got me the second the author posted a picture of it on her Instagram account. Or was it on Twitter? Anyway. The red somehow got into my brain *smile* and the blurb sounds very fascinating. Good, I admit, I haven´t read adult fantasy combined with Science Fiction in a very long time, if at all, but why not give this a try and see how it fits into my reading habits? Sometimes you just NEED to break them, to discover new things. Am I right? I do hope that I will like this. Since the weekend I know when the second one will be published in Germany and that is already on my request list as well. Oh boy, going to be a very busy fall and winter 2019/2020 *lol*
