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
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’d love to hear what upcoming book releases you’re waiting on this Wednesday? Leave me your link in the comments below and I’ll stop by and check out your CWW selection for this week. 🙂
Whew. This sounds so gOOD! I hope it’s everything you come to expect from her 🙂
I hope so too! I’m so addicted to her books!
Wait! What?!?! How did I not know Vicious was going to get a sequel??? It was my first Schwab book!!! Adding to my TBR now and it comes out shortly after my birthday next month so many I’ll get some gift cards!
Yay! Early Happy Birthday to you! Vengeful sounds like the perfect gift. 🙂
This sounds really good! Will have to check out the first book.
If you do, I hope you enjoy it!
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!
I haven’t heard of that one, but it’s always great when kids are excited about new books coming out!
I didn’t realize it came out in a month!! I need to get on it – I do own Vicious though, so hopefully I can dive into that soon.
I hope you love it as much as I did!
This is where I shamefully admit that I still haven’t read anything from VE Schwab!
I didn’t start reading her until last year but immediately fell in love with every book of hers I read.
I’m beyond excited to read this! Vicious is such a special book for me😁
It’s so good!
Ugh I am so intrigued by VE Schwab’s books! I can’t wait to dive into her writing soon. Here’s The Book I’m Waiting For
They’re all so good!
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.
Oh yes, I think you’re right, and Schwab does not shy away from endings where all is not well either.
I haven’t read this book series but I definitely want to check it out. Enjoy!

I CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS ONE!! Eeek!!
Right?! So excited!
Hope you enjoy! September isn’t so far away now… (And that’s a slightly disturbing realisation! lol)
LOL! I know, right? Where has this whole year gone to in such a hurry?
I’m kind of in love with this cover- it’s so dark and moody!
Me too! I actually love all of her covers.
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!
I really hope you love Vicious!
I have heard about this series and I really need to buckle down and read it.
It’s so good!
I’m also excited for Vengeful! But I doubt I’ll be able to read it when any time soon. Moments like these I really wish we had a library in our place!
Aww, I hope you won’t have to wait too long to read it!
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. 🙂
Haha, yes you do! I was late to the bandwagon as well but ended up being happy that I finally got on it.
Gah! I need to read Vicious ASAP and then hopefully LOVE IT and get this one! Great pick!
I can’t wait to see what you think of Vicious!
I really need to read these books. Seriously. Hopefully soon – or maybe together. 🙂
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’m definitely in the minority here, but I didn’t love Vicious. Maybe I just wasn’t in the right mood or it was just too hyped or something, idk. But I hope this second book turns out great for you!
Thanks, I hope so too!
I want to read this series. It sounds so good! I am glad you enjoyed the first book. Hopefully this one will be just as good, if not better.
Thanks, I hope so too!
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! 😊❤️
I do too and her villains are just the best!
I’m currently reading Vicious (almost finished) and am LOVING it so I’m already excited for Vengeful 🙂
I’m so glad you’re enjoying Vicious. I thought it was brilliant!
