This is a weekly meme where any one can choose a random book from their Goodreads TBR and highlight it. Once you choose a book and create your post, make sure you link and reference the creator, @Lauren’s Page Turners. Eventually, I will try to find a rhyme or reason to my choices, but for now, each week will feature a random one that I mean to read soon!
This Week’s Selection:
Lost in the Never Woods by Aiden Thomas
When children go missing in the small coastal town of Astoria, people look to Wendy for answers.
It’s been five years since Wendy and her two brothers went missing in the woods, but when the town’s children start to disappear, the questions surrounding her brothers’ mysterious circumstances are brought back into light. Attempting to flee her past, Wendy almost runs over an unconscious boy lying in the middle of the road, and gets pulled into the mystery haunting the town.
Peter, a boy she thought lived only in her stories, claims that if they don’t do something, the missing children will meet the same fate as her brothers. In order to find them and rescue the missing kids, Wendy must confront what’s waiting for her in the woods.
I absolutely loved Aiden’s debut novel, Cemetery Boys, and immediately had to find a way to read their next novel. I decided to go with the blog tour route for this novel as I am excited to be a part of a group who were just as anxious as me to read this novel. My blog tour date will take place later this week on Thursday, which means that my procrastinating self has not read the book yet and I will be doing so ASAP. I am nervous as sometimes debuts can be amazing while the follow-ups can not live up to your expectations, but I somehow have a feeling that this one will be great, too, and I will not be disappointed. (We shall see how it actually turns out when I finish the novel. haha)
