It's Monday, What Are You Reading? (38)
This is a fun weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.
Books I read last week:
Fall for Anything by Courtney Summers
My Soul to Steal by Rachel Vincent
Paranormalcy by Kiersten White
The book I’m reading now:
Red Riding Hood by Sarah Blakely-Cartwright:
The body of a young girl is discovered in a field of wheat. Her flesh mutilated by telltale claw marks. The Wolf has broken the peace.
When Valerie learns that her sister has been killed by the legendary creature, she finds herself at the center of a dark mystery, one that has plagued her village for generations. It is revealed that the werewolf lives among them, and everyone in the village immediately becomes a suspect. Could her secret love Peter be behind the attacks on her town? Is it her betrothed, Henry? Or someone even closer to her?
As the men in the village hunt for the beast, Valerie turns to her grandmother for help. She gives Valerie a handmade red riding cloak, and guides her through the web of lies and deception that has held her town together for so long. Will Valerie discover the werewolf's identity before the town is ripped apart?
This is a dangerous new vision of a classic fairy tale, the happy ending could be hard to find.
Books that spark my interest this week:
Born of Night by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Nightkeepers by Jessica Anderson
Wicked Deeds on a Winter's Night by Kresley Cole
