My TBR list gets longer and longer every week. I wanted a way to share the books that are on that list, so I decided on these posts. I might not exactly be reviewing these books straight away or any time soon, but you never know I might review them next!
Books I have decided to share On The List this week are:
When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his first name. His memory is blank. But he’s not alone. When the lift’s doors open, Thomas finds himself surrounded by kids who welcome him to the Glade—a large, open expanse enclosed by stone walls.
Just like Thomas, the Gladers don’t know why or how they got to the Glade. All they know is that every morning the stone doors to the maze that surrounds them, open. Every night they are closed tight. And that every 30 days a new boy is delivered in the lift.
Thomas was expected. Only the next day, a girl is sent up—the first girl to ever arrive in the Glade. And more surprising yet is the message she delivers.
Thomas might be more important than he could ever guess. If only he could unlock the dark secrets that are buried within his mind.
Everyone that has read this seems to have loved it and raves about it. So I decided to add it to my list. I usually prefer reading characters that are females, just because I can relate to them more so this one will be interesting. There is a female mentioned so perhaps it is written in third person and changes perspectives. I won’t know till I read it!
It isn’t easy being the rather overlooked and unhappy youngest sibling to sisters named for the other six days of the week. Sunday’s only comfort is writing stories, although what she writes has a terrible tendency to come true.
When Sunday meets an enchanted frog who asks about her stories, the two become friends. Soon that friendship deepens into something magical. One night Sunday kisses her frog goodbye and leaves, not realizing that her love has transformed him back into Rumbold, the crown prince of Arilland—and a man Sunday’s family despises.
The prince returns to his castle, intent on making Sunday fall in love with him as the man he is, not the frog he was. But Sunday is not so easy to woo. How can she feel such a strange, strong attraction for this prince she barely knows? And what twisted secrets lie hidden in his past – and hers?
I love the fairytale Cinderella. So when it comes to plots that sound anything like Cinderella (Prince falls for commoner) I will give it a go! This one sounds fun to read. I don’t like the name Sunday or the fact that all the other siblings are named after the days of the week but maybe I’ll get over that when I read it?
What’s ‘On Your List’? What books have you just added to be read?
