I really think I like to keep my bank account as low as possible…
I have done it again. I bought a book this month which I swore I wouldn’t do because it’s Christmas and people can buy my books for me. I feel ashamed.
Anyways so the book I bought was Passenger by Alexandra Bracken. People have been gushing about this book. I bought it from Half Price Books Online. I wanted to get this book because I want to get caught up so I can get Wayfarer its sequel when it comes out in January. This is the cover of the book:
HOW GREAT DOES THAT LOOK! Ugh, I am very influenced by appealing book covers.
Also, read this synopsis:
“In one devastating night, violin prodigy Etta Spencer loses everything she knows and loves. Thrust into an unfamiliar world by a stranger with a dangerous agenda, Etta is certain of only one thing: she has traveled not just miles but years from home. And she’s inherited a legacy she knows nothing about from a family whose existence she’s never heard of. Until now.
Nicholas Carter is content with his life at sea, free from the Ironwoods—a powerful family in the colonies—and the servitude he’s known at their hands. But with the arrival of an unusual passenger on his ship comes the insistent pull of the past that he can’t escape and the family that won’t let him go so easily. Now the Ironwoods are searching for a stolen object of untold value, one they believe only Etta, Nicholas’ passenger, can find. In order to protect her, he must ensure she brings it back to them—whether she wants to or not.
Together, Etta and Nicholas embark on a perilous journey across centuries and continents, piecing together clues left behind by the traveler who will do anything to keep the object out of the Ironwoods’ grasp. But as they get closer to the truth of their search, and the deadly game the Ironwoods are playing, treacherous forces threaten to separate Etta not only from Nicholas but from her path home… forever.” -Goodreads
That just sounds epic right? I am excited to read this book.
