All I'm saying is there are 10 unreleased Schwab books on my to read list.
8 of them do not have a cover.
5 of them do not have a title.

August 2nd '17 — So Schwab briefly discussed this book at the authors event AND MY GOD ARE WE IN FOR A RIDE OF A STORY!!! She mentioned that this story is the closest she'll come to writing a love story. And just the concept of a girl falling in love with the devil... HOOOOW DOES SHE COME UP WITH THESE IDEAS?!!

Now, it's the agonising thing we have to do called waiting till fuckin' 2019. I better be alive.


Initial reaction:
That title though!!!

A book about a girl who sells her soul to the devil?

Are you sure this isn't about me? Because I've sold my soul to Victoria Schwab.

For some reason I (and apparently a lot of people on twitter) thought this was going to be YA but it's an adult standalone and LOOK AT THIS AESTHETIC!!

RIP me forever

Brb guys, I'm time-traveling to 2019. Don't worry, I won't spoil the ending for ya.

If ratings were based solely on titles, I'd give this book a 5, right now.

If you had to factor in the idea itself, well...

*star counter breaks*

VICTORIA SCHWAB WHY DO YOU DO THIS TO MY HEART?????????

Also, does anyone else have the feeling like this is gonna be the best thing ever?

SO. MANY. EXPECTATIONS.

That might quite possibly be the best synopsis I've ever read and it's only a sentence.

The synopsis isn't long, however, it sounds positively eerie and fantastic. 2019 needs to come quicker!
Grezzie || HIATUS toot toot-
NO WAY

I want this right now as much as everyone does, but guys according to GR this actually comes out ON THE LAST DAY OF 2019. So reschedule your appointments, meetings and your 2019-tbr shelf. because we'll read this in 2020.

I FEEL CHEATED BECAUSE DECEMBER 31 2019 IS REALLY ACTUALLY 2020!

Why can’t authors just wait a couple months before publication to reveal news about future book releases? Why must Schwab torture us by making us wait this long?

They’re all sadists I tell you. That woman is probably drinking wine and laughing at all of us suffering in misery just waiting for this...

A story about a girl who falls in love with the Devil?
Sign me the hell up! I might also be getting really excited because the synopsis reminds me of Blue Exorcist and I loved the backstory of the romance between Satan and the main characters mom.
