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.

I love reading Amie Kaufman's books. She has a wonderful fantasy style and always knows how to create a new world that captures her readers' eyes and own fantasy. And when I read that a figure has saltwater running through her veins, I was like oh? How comes? Guess, the only way to find out about the why is by reading this novel.

The Isles Of The Gods
Author Amie Kaufman
Publishing Date October 25, 2023
Publisher Fischer Sauerländer
Format Hardcover

When Selly's father leaves her high and dry in the port of Kirkpool, she has no intention of riding out the winter on land while he sails to adventure in the north seas. But any plans to follow him are dashed when a handsome stranger with tell-tale magician's marks on his arm boards her ship, presenting her and the crew with a dangerous mission: to cross the Crescent Sea without detection so he can complete a ritual on the sacred Isles of the Gods. What starts as a leisure cruise will lead to acts of treason and sheer terror on the high seas, bringing two countries to the brink of war, two strangers closer than they ever thought possible and stirring two dangerous gods from centuries of slumber....

The English edition was published on May 2, 2023, by Knopf Books For Young Readers.
