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.

At first, I wasn´t very intrigued by the cover, to be honest. But it is a V.E. Schwab book, and usually, she writes wonderful stories. Not all can thrill me, but most of them do. Hopefully, this one will be a “could-thrill-me” novel. If not, well… don´t think about it *lol*

Publishing Date March 29, 2023

Olivia Prior grew up in an orphanage. She never met her father and has long forgotten her mother's voice. All she has left is her mother's diary. It's full of riddles and strange drawings that she hopes to unravel one day. Her life in the home is anything but easy because she cannot speak and communicates with the help of an old slate. She also sees the spirits of the dead, silently observing the goings-on of the living. She's not afraid of them, if only because Olivia feels like she's buried alive. But everything changes when a letter from her uncle arrives at the school, inviting her to come to her family's ancestral home. For Olivia, it's a unique chance to learn more about her parents' fate. But she suspects that the price she has to pay will be high...
