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.

Good, I admit it, the cover – neither the US nor the German one – is mine. Too red, too I don´t know what to be honest. But the summary sounds very thrilling and I always think that if this book is as good as the last King Arthur movie I´ve watched on TV a few weeks ago (don´t ask me why I always think of that movie when thinking about this book), then this must be one hell of a great story. Sure, the author is totally new to me but sometimes you need to discover new things. Hopefully, the book is worth waiting for.
