Can’t Wait Wednesday – VENGEFUL by V.E. Schwab


“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about.  It is a meme that I have  loved participating in for over a year now, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll just be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is VENGEFUL by V.E. Schwab.   I just read the first book in this series earlier this month and thought it was absolutely brilliant.  I love books that feature anti-heroes and Schwab, no surprise here, has outdone herself with her characters, Victor Vale and Ely Ever.  I can’t wait to see what Schwab has in store for them in this latest installment.  If the title is any indication, we’re going to be in for one heck of a ride!


VENGEFUL by V.E. Schwab

Publication Date:  September 25, 2018



From Goodreads:

The sequel to VICIOUS, V.E. Schwab’s first adult novel.

Sydney once had Serena—beloved sister, betrayed enemy, powerful ally. But now she is alone, except for her thrice-dead dog, Dol, and then there’s Victor, who thinks Sydney doesn’t know about his most recent act of vengeance.

Victor himself is under the radar these days—being buried and re-animated can strike concern even if one has superhuman powers. But despite his own worries, his anger remains. And Eli Ever still has yet to pay for the evil he has done.

    I love the cover! I’m looking forward to several YA and young reader graphic novels for the fall. My kids are even more excited than I am. Margo Maloo, for one!

    You get the strongest feeling this one isn’t going to end well, judging from that blurb. I haven’t yet had the pleasure of this series, though I’ve seen plenty of enthusiasm for it. I hope you enjoy it and look forward to reading your review in due course, Suzanne.

    This reminds me that I need to read Vicious! I am seeing praise for Vicious and excitement for Vengeful *everywhere* it seems, so it looks like it’s time to get on that. 🙂 Great choice!

    Schwab seems to be one of those authors that everyone loves, and I haven’t anything of hers yet, but I need to. I want to get on the bandwagon. 🙂

      I just finished Vicious last month and am kind of glad that I did so that I don’t have to wait long for the second book. If you read them, I hope you enjoy both!

    I loved This Savage Song so I can’t wait either to start this series! Schwab is such a good writer and I love that she writes villains! 😊❤️
