This is inspired by a meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. In this post I talk about books yet to be released that I'm excited about OR already published book's I've seen that I'm really wanting to read. I also like to try and find books other bloggers aren't sharing so that more books are shared.
This week I'm waiting on:
Away by Teri Hall
Release Date: September 15
I know this one is a looooooong ways off, but I really can't wait to find out what happens. The first book book ends on such an open note and lately I've been thinking about what might happen next. Plus one of my students read it and my daughter, and all three of us are just very anxious to see what happens next. The Line (book 1) is pretty slow moving at first and just when you think the action is going to start - the book ends, so it's super frustrating but in a good way!
I read The Line in the middle of Christmas break, so I only wrote a mini review. I'm going to try and convince the student who read it to write a fuller review because she's really excited about it and the sequel.
When Rachel crosses The Line she leaves behind everything she has ever known and enters a strange new world: Away. Life there is hard, and survival is never guaranteed. Bizarre, wild creatures roam the forests, and people—the same people she’s always been told are dangerous and untrustworthy—have gifts she’s never thought possible.
Rachel has to rely on Pathik, the boy she risked her own life for, to help her navigate the strange customs. He’s exasperating, but she thinks she can trust him, and she hopes he’ll lead her to answers about her father. As it turns out, he leads her to more than she bargained for, and Rachel finds herself on an adventure filled with life and death choices, dark conspiracies, and unthinkable sacrifice.
In a place with no technology, no electricity, no medicine, and very little hope, Rachel discovers that only one thing makes life worth living. If only it’s not too late.
