Goodreads Monday is new meme to me. It is hosted by Page Turner, and the idea is to post a book that’s on your TBR pile and show it off. This is the first time I am participating, it looks like a great way to show off books I have not yet managed to read.
So to start off I have chosen Passenger by Alexandra Bracken. Published January 5th 2016 by Disney-Hyperion.
i. A brief section of music composed of a series of notes and flourishes.
ii. A journey by water; a voyage.
iii. The transition from one place to another, across space and time.
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.
I know you aren’t supposed to judge a book by its cover, but I just really love this cover! It kind of reminds me of the scene in Hook, where the old man makes the ships inside the bottles. The summary sounds really promising and I can’t wait to be able to dive into this book. (Side note: this book was released on my baby sisters birthday! ;))
Have you read this one? What are your opinions on it?
