Guess who has more library books and not enough time to read them all? It’s me! And of course they’re all books I want to read so either I have to read them fast or decide which ones I have to return, if they can’t be renewed of course (PLEASE LIBRARY GODS LET ME BE ABLE TO RENEW THEM!).
This week I got Sadie by Courtney Summers and The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White.
Sadie follows a teenage girl named Sadie who’s had a hard life in a small town, trying to maintain some sort of normality for her younger sister Mattie who she’s been raising. But when Mattie is found dead and the police don’t seem to be working very hard to find the killer, Sadie goes out on her own with the few clues she has to get justice for her sister. At the same time, radio host West McCray hears about Sadie’s story and tries to find out where she is, where she’s going, and what happened to her and her sister.
It sounds like a really interesting and unique story and has been getting rave reviews, so I really hope I get to this book!
The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White is probably one of the most excited books for 2018. It looks at Elizabeth Lavenza, the orphan turned cousin/daughter of the Frankenstein family who is reduced to a love interest and victim in Mary Shelley’s novel. But White looks at Elizabeth’s history and seeks to bring more to the girl than siply Victor Frankenstein’s wife. I adore Mary Shelley and Frankenstein and can’t wait to see White’s spin on this classic story.
