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.

This will be my first read by the author. So, no, I have no clue if I will like it or if the author´s style will suit me. But the cover of the German edition looks so wonderful and the backtext sounds so intriguing that I want to find out if the rest of the book will fulfill my expectations.

Tova Sullivan has been cleaning at the Sowell Bay Aquarium since she was widowed. She notices how Marcellus, a curious, cheeky giant octopus, is looking at her from his aquarium. Marcellus is enormously clever, he wouldn't lift a tentacle for humans - until he befriends Tova. She tells him about her son, who disappeared decades ago. Smart as he is, Marcellus discovers a secret that Tova doesn't know. Now he has eight arms full to uncover the truth for Tova - before it's too late.
