Musings Monday

Musing Mondays is a weekly meme that asks you to choose one of the following prompts to answer:

  • I’m currently reading…
  • Up next I think I’ll read…
  • I bought the following book(s) in the past week…
  • I’m super excited to tell you about (book/author/bookish-news)…
  • I’m really upset by (book/author/bookish-news)…
  • I can’t wait to get a copy of…
  • I wish I could read ___, but…
  • I blogged about ____ this past week

This awesome meme comes from MizB over at A Daily Rhythm. I’ve decided to answer the question “I can’t wait to get a copy of…

The Girl From Everywhere

It was the kind of August day that hinted at monsoons, and the year was 1774, though not for very much longer.

Sixteen-year-old Nix Song is a time-traveller. She, her father and their crew of time refugees travel the world aboard The Temptation, a glorious pirate ship stuffed with treasures both typical and mythical. Old maps allow Nix and her father to navigate not just to distant lands, but distant times – although a map will only take you somewhere once. And Nix’s father is only interested in one time, and one place: Honolulu 1868. A time before Nix was born, and her mother was alive. Something that puts Nix’s existence rather dangerously in question…

Nix has grown used to her father’s obsession, but only because she’s convinced it can’t work. But then a map falls into her father’s lap that changes everything. And when Nix refuses to help, her father threatens to maroon Kashmir, her only friend (and perhaps, only love) in a time where Nix will never be able to find him. And if Nix has learned one thing, it’s that losing the person you love is a torment that no one can withstand. Nix must work out what she wants, who she is, and where she really belongs before time runs out on her forever.

I CANNOT wait to get a hold of this book. I mean just look at the cover it’s amazing and so detailed while being rather simple. Plus I love the whole “She is a myth. She is history. She is gone.” It just gives me chills. I’m sure this is going to be a huge hit in the YA realm and I am super excited to get a hold of it on February 16.

     What are you looking forward to this week?

Xoxo,

Mary

    1. Omg I know what you mean I try not to get too overwhelmed by the pile. I just posted a list of some books in looking to read for the month so I think I’m gonna do The Selection next and hopefully finish that up quick. I’ve never heard of More Happy than Not I’ll have to look it up
