Waiting on Wednesday: The Deep by Alma Katsu and Malice by Pintip Dunn

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Jenn's Pick: I Can't wait to have my hands on this!

The Deep
The Deep by Alma Katsu
March 10th, 2020

This is the only way to explain the series of misfortunes that have plagued the passengers of the ship from the moment they set sail: mysterious disappearances, sudden deaths. Now suspended in an eerie, unsettling twilight zone during the four days of the liner's illustrious maiden voyage, a number of the passengers - including millionaires Madeleine Astor and Benjamin Guggenheim, the maid Annie Hebbley and Mark Fletcher - are convinced that something sinister is going on . . . And then, as the world knows, disaster strikes.
Years later and the world is at war. And a survivor of that fateful night, Annie, is working as a nurse on the sixth voyage of the Titanic's sister ship, the Britannic, now refitted as a hospital ship. Plagued by the demons of her doomed first and near fatal journey across the Atlantic, Annie comes across an unconscious soldier she recognises while doing her rounds. It is the young man Mark. And she is convinced that he did not - could not - have survived the sinking of the Titanic . . .

Ash's Pick: I need to read this NOW! 

Malice by Pintip Dunn 
February 4th, 2020

What I know: a boy in my school will one day wipe out two-thirds of the population with a virus.
What I don’t know: who he is.
In a race against the clock, I not only have to figure out his identity, but I’ll have to outwit a voice from the future telling me to kill him. Because I’m starting to realize no one is telling the truth. But how can I play chess with someone who already knows the outcome of my every move? Someone so filled with malice they’ve lost all hope in humanity? Well, I’ll just have to find a way—because now they’ve drawn a target on the only boy I’ve ever loved... 


  1. Both of these sound great. I've read Dunn's first book and really enjoyed it. I also have an arc of The Deep and even though I didn't like The Hunger, I'm eager to give the author another chance.

  2. Malice sounds awesome! I'm so excited for that one! :)

  3. Ooh nice! I'm really curious about The Deep! It sounds like my kind of read! I still need to read Dunn's first series! I heard such good things about that one too! Hope you both will love your pick once you get a hold of it!

    Here's my WoW

    Have a GREAT day!

  4. Ooo these sound great!! I’ll have to check them out! :)

  5. I'm really looking forward to reading The Deep, too! I was lucky enough to get an ARC of it, and I'm just itching to read it already, and trying to wait closer to release is killing me. It sounds too good. xD I'm also looking forward to Malice, too!

  6. They both sounds good, maybe I'm a bit more curious about The Deep, even though the cover for Malice calls to me with those great colours <3
