Namesake by Adrienne Young

Blurb:

This Week’s Books… Namesake by Adrienne Young – When the Stars Go Dark by Paula McLain – A History of Wild Places by Shea Ernshaw #Reading #Books #AmReading

Over the weekend I finished Fable by Adrienne Young. The book was amazing. You can see my review by clicking here. This week I have three books lined up including:

Namesake by Adrienne Young

After finishing Fable, which ended on a huge cliffhanger, I had to move right on to Namesake. I’m about a third of the way in, and it’s good so far but has a different feel. I’m not as enthralled as I was with Fable. I’m still confident it’s going to turn out well because there are some interesting twists about her mother coming to light now.

Five Fabulous Stars to Fable by Adrienne Young #Book Review #Fable #YA #Fiction

Fable by Adrienne Young

Blurb:

For seventeen-year-old Fable, the daughter of the most powerful trader in the Narrows, the sea is the only home she has ever known. It’s been four years since the night she watched her mother drown during an unforgiving storm. The next day her father abandoned her on a legendary island filled with thieves and little food. To survive she must keep to herself, learn to trust no one, and rely on the unique skills her mother taught her. The only thing that keeps her going is the goal of getting off the island, finding her father, and demanding her rightful place beside him and his crew. To do so Fable enlists the help of a young trader named West to get her off the island and across the Narrows to her father.

But her father’s rivalries and the dangers of his trading enterprise have only multiplied since she last saw him, and Fable soon finds that West isn’t who he seems. Together, they will have to survive more than the treacherous storms that haunt the Narrows if they’re going to stay alive.

This Week’s Books: Fable by Adrienne Young – The War That Saved My Life by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley – Bo’s Magical New Friend by Rebecca Elliot #Books #Reads #Reading

Books just finished over the weekend:

Luckily, all of these turned out to be good reads. My daughter loved Sydney and Taylor, and we’re hoping to get the second and third books in the series next. Gone to the Woods and Red Wolf were fantastic reads. My review for Red Wolf will be up soon because the publication date is in July. This one adds another book for the retelling challenge, which is a plus.
