Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine.
This week’s Can’t-Wait offering – One Day All This Will Be Yours by Adrian Tchaikovksy – release date 2nd March, 2021

BLURB: Welcome to the end of time. It’s a perfect day.
Nobody remembers how the Causality War started. Really, there’s no-one to remember, and nothing for them to remember if there were; that’s sort of the point. We were time warriors, and we broke time.
I was the one who ended it. Ended the fighting, tidied up the damage as much as I could.
Then I came here, to the end of it all, and gave myself a mission: to never let it happen again.
I am really looking forward to this novella. For starters, it’s about time travel and there’s a dinosaur on the cover – what’s not to love? The icing on the cake is that it is by one of my favourite authors, who is going through an insanely prolific patch right now. We can guess what Adrian was doing during lockdown last year… writing, writing and more writing! I’m intrigued to see how the humour surfaces, too. Anyone else have this one on their TBR pile?
I have this one on me list. I be so excited. I have a copy of this and need to read it soon. Arrr!

Me too, Cap! I’m about to tuck into it this week – so looking forward to it.
I’m already hearing good things about this, I just love the title and cover:-)
I know!! I’m about to start it, so very excited:)))
I hadn’t heard of this one! So I’m adding it to my list. I like that it’s about time travel!
Yes… Though knowing Tchaikovsky, this doesn’t mean it’s going to be your usual time travel adventure:)).
I’m adding this one to wishlist right now. Everything about it sounds awesome. Thanks for sharing! 🙂
You’re very welcome, Ashley – I’m making a start on it tonight…
This is one I’m excited for as well. Great pick!

Thank you, Lisa! I’ve just started it and so far am thoroughly enjoying the story…
Hmm, almost has a playful Doctor Who sort of vibe to it, I’m curious!
I hadn’t thought about it like that – but you’re right, there is a sense of Dr Who – the David Tennant version, I think…
I haven’t heard of this one, but it sounds like a lot of fun. I hope you enjoy One Day This Will All Be Yours when you read it, Sarah. I’ll have to check it out too.
I’m hoping it will be fun, the thing with Tchaikovsky is that one can never tell…
I love the title and cover. I’m curious about it now. Hope you enjoy it! My pick is The Hidden Palace by Helene Wecker. https://razzberrycoloredglasses.blogspot.com/2021/02/cant-wait-wednesdaywaiting-on-wednesday_24.html
This is intriguing. I’m going to add it to my wishlist. Hope you enjoy it.
Thank you, Yvonne – I hope I enjoy it, too:)
I love the premise of this one. The cover is fantastic too.
I know! Dinosaurs and Adrian Tchaikovsky:))
A dinosaur (or a dragon, at that…) on the cover never fails to prove irresistible for me! 😀
Oh I know! I’m an absolute sucker for a good dragon or dinosaur:))
Oh my, definitely an interesting blurb: where is the end of it all? I definitely did not expect the dinsoaur on the cover either! I hope you enjoy it!
I’ve now finished this one – it was very enjoyable, if completely unexpected:))
Oooo, this sounds like a fun little read! I admit–I thought the dinosaur was the protagonist. 🙂
Nope. I’ll be honest – there a part of me that would have quite liked Miffy’s take on what was going on…
