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.

The English edition is already out and was made a Goodreads Choice 2019 winner. This Waiting on Wednesday post is about the German edition who will be published as paperback within the next few weeks. I don´t know why that is, but somehow the blue and black of the German cover speaks more to me than the original cover does. If everything goes as planned, then this will be my first Leigh Bardugo read. The summary sounds interesting enough to get my attention and with all the Tweets I´ve read during the past weeks and months about this book and the author´s other work, I am more than curious to see if this one is readable without any knowledge about her previous work and figures or not. If you know any book by the author, what do you think?

Galaxy “Alex” Stern is the most unlikely member of Yale’s freshman class. Raised in the Los Angeles hinterlands by a hippie mom, Alex dropped out of school early and into a world of shady drug dealer boyfriends, dead-end jobs, and much, much worse. By age twenty, in fact, she is the sole survivor of a horrific, unsolved multiple homicide. Some might say she’s thrown her life away. But at her hospital bed, Alex is offered a second chance: to attend one of the world’s most elite universities on a full ride. What’s the catch, and why her? Still searching for answers to this herself, Alex arrives in New Haven tasked by her mysterious benefactors with monitoring the activities of Yale’s secret societies. These eight windowless “tombs” are well-known to be haunts of the future rich and powerful, from high-ranking politicos to Wall Street and Hollywood’s biggest players. But their occult activities are revealed to be more sinister and more extraordinary than any paranoid imagination might conceive.





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.


Happy reading & waiting on

  1. I own the hardback but haven't read it yet. I have to admit even though I hate Booksnake, blue booksnake is much cooler than the black one!
