Goodreads Monday is a meme hosted by Page Turner, and the idea is to post a book that’s on your TBR pile and show it off. This is a great way to show off books I have not yet managed to read!
This week I have chosen:
Title: Walk on Earth a Stranger (The Gold Seer Trilogy #1)
Author: Rae Carson
Published: September 22nd 2015 by Greenwillow Books
Gold is in my blood, in my breath, even in the flecks in my eyes.
Lee Westfall has a strong, loving family. She has a home she loves and a loyal steed. She has a best friend—who might want to be something more.
She also has a secret.
Lee can sense gold in the world around her. Veins deep in the earth. Small nuggets in a stream. Even gold dust caught underneath a fingernail. She has kept her family safe and able to buy provisions, even through the harshest winters. But what would someone do to control a girl with that kind of power? A person might murder for it.
When everything Lee holds dear is ripped away, she flees west to California—where gold has just been discovered. Perhaps this will be the one place a magical girl can be herself. If she survives the journey.
The acclaimed Rae Carson begins a sweeping new trilogy set in Gold Rush-era America, about a young woman with a powerful and dangerous gift.
I actually discovered this book on one of the Instagram accounts that I follow. They gave such a good review, that I bought it one on of my Book Outlet purchases. I have been kind of in a reading slump lately so it has just been hanging out on my shelf. Hopefully soon I can dust it off and read it!
What is on your TBR shelf this week?
