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.

A few weeks ago, while searching through the new book program of a German publisher, my eyes were stuck with this cover. The bright-dark contrast, the modern look, and the almost clean design got me curious. The summary though sounds somewhat familiar. The Hunger Games probably? Well, this debut novel rings a bell, that´s for sure. And so, yes, I am eager to find out if it is something new or something I´ve already read by another author. One thing for sure IS sure: This author is new to me.

  1. I can see a hint of Hunger Games possibly. But, it does sound intriguing. I'll be curious to hear what you think.

    1. It does, right? Hopefully it isn´t the case and the story is unique.
