Hello reader/s! I hope you’re well! For a while now, I’ve been writing a weekly or bi-weekly post about books that are on my TBR. TBR, if you don’t know is the abbreviation for To Be Read. My goal here is to shed some light on books that I’ve otherwise forgotten about. These books could be books I’ve been meaning to read from the library, or books that have been collecting dust on my shelves at home. My goal though is to say a little about the book and also give a little reasoning of why I want to read them. In hopes of reading them sooner than later.
The books that I’ll be talking about this week are books that have come to my attention in the last year or so. I’ll be completely honest in saying that I haven’t heard much about either of these books. They’ve only appeared in my line of interest thanks to Goodreads, and because of that I’ve now added them to my TBR. Both books are by authors that I’ve never read from before, so I don’t know if I’ll enjoy their writing either.
The first book is The Fall, by Bethany Griffin.
I’m particularly interested in The Fall because of how the synopsis has set up the book. The synopsis has said that the main character Madeline Usher is doomed. All the Usher’s past, present and future, it seems are doomed.
“Ushers die young. Ushers are cursed. Ushers can never leave their house, a house that haunts and is haunted, a house that almost seems to have a mind of its own. Madeline’s life–revealed through shorts bursts of memory–has hinged around her desperate plan to escape, to save herself and her brother. Her only chance lies in destroying the house.“
I for one don’t know what to expect to read whenever I get around to reading The Fall. However, I can expect the Mystery to either be incredibly entertaining, or the story will drive me up the wall. All YA Mysteries have that effect on me. I either hate them, or love them.
The second book is Frozen, by Melissa de la Cruz, and, Michael Johnston.
I don’t know what will happen in Frozen. I like the prospect that Las Vegas has been frozen over, and New Vegas…is somehow still thriving? I have no idea, haha. I’m actually at a loss for words for this book. I was pretty excited to read Frozen prior to reading the synopsis, because everyone has been hush-hush about the story. Now that I’ve read the synopsis though, I can’t say that I’m 100% excited to read the book.
I’m excited for the magic and paranormal aspects of the book though! I love a good prospective story that has magic elements to their stories. I’ve read on Frozen’s Goodreads page that there are Dragons in Frozen, and to be honest, I am so excited to see how they work in this world!!
Whenever I get around to reading the book though, I’ll try to keep an open mind about the story.
The Fall and Frozen are two very different books, yet they’re similar in their genres. I am excited to read and see what happens! — Have you read either of these books? If you have, what do you think of them? If you haven’t read the books, do you think you’re ever going to?
