Spook-a-Thon 2019 | Mijn to be read stapel!

Zaterdag is het zover dan begint de Spook-a-Thon, wat ik sowieso hoop te lezen in de week dat deze loopt zie je in deze post!

Gezien het lezen op een laag pitje staat sinds september heb ik besloten geen al te grote tbr te maken!

Ik lees gewoon waar ik zin in heb en elke bladzijde is er ééntje!

Natuurlijk is zondag Yalfu, ik weet alleen nog niet of ik daar heen kan… even afwachten hoe vandaag verloopt en hoe ik me tegen die tijd voel! Maar mocht ik gaan dan word er wel een dag van mij read-a-thon gesnoept 😉

Maar stiekem hoop ik toch wel deze Engelse boekjes te verslinden aankomende week!

The Devouring Gray by Christine Lynn Herman

Branches and stones, daggers and bones,
They locked the Beast away.

After the death of her sister, seventeen-year-old Violet Saunders finds herself dragged to Four Paths, New York. Violet may be a newcomer, but she soon learns her mother isn’t: They belong to one of the revered founding families of the town, where stone bells hang above every doorway and danger lurks in the depths of the woods.

Justin Hawthorne’s bloodline has protected Four Paths for generations from the Gray—a lifeless dimension that imprisons a brutal monster. After Justin fails to inherit his family’s powers, his mother is determined to keep this humiliation a secret. But Justin can’t let go of the future he was promised and the town he swore to protect.

Ever since Harper Carlisle lost her hand to an accident that left her stranded in the Gray for days, she has vowed revenge on the person who abandoned her: Justin Hawthorne. There are ripples of dissent in Four Paths, and Harper seizes an opportunity to take down the Hawthornes and change her destiny-to what extent, even she doesn’t yet know.

The Gray is growing stronger every day, and its victims are piling up. When Violet accidentally unleashes the monster, all three must band together with the other Founders to unearth the dark truths behind their families’ abilities—before the Gray devours them all.

The Hollow Girl by Hillary Monahan

Five boys attacked her.
Now they must repay her with their blood and flesh.

Bethan is the apprentice to a green healer named Drina in a clan of Welsh Romanies. Her life is happy and ordered and modest, as required by Roma custom, except for one thing: Silas, the son of the chieftain, has been secretly harassing her.

One night, Silas and his friends brutally assault Bethan and a half-Roma friend, Martyn. As empty and hopeless as she feels from the attack, she asks Drina to bring Martyn back from death’s door. “There is always a price for this kind of magic,” Drina warns. The way to save him is gruesome. Bethan must collect grisly pieces to fuel the spell: an ear, some hair, an eye, a nose, and fingers.

She gives the boys who assaulted her a chance to come forward and apologize. And when they don’t, she knows exactly where to collect her ingredients to save Martyn.

What the Dead Want by Norah Olson

16 -year-old Gretchen takes photographs to understand the world around her, a passion her mother Mona fostered and encouraged when she was still around. Since her mom disappeared years ago, Gretchen and her dad have lived on their own in New York City, haunted by Mona’s absence.

When Gretchen’s great aunt Esther calls unexpectedly to tell her that she has inherited the pre-Civil War mansion on her mother’s side of the family in upstate New York, Gretchen understands nothing except that her aunt needs her help. But what she finds there is beyond her imagination. The house is crumbling apart, filled with stacks of papers and journals from decades, even centuries past, and it’s crawling with rodents. It’s also full of secrets and a legacy of racism and violence so reprehensible that the ghosts of the past are exacting revenge on the living.

Somehow the mystery of Mona’s disappearance and the atrocities that happened on the land during the Civil War are inextricably intertwined, and it’s up to Gretchen to figure out how…before even more lives are lost.

  1. Ik heb nog veel te veel ongelezen boeken, maar voor de spook-a-thon heb ik er maar een paar klaargelegd om mezelf niet al teveel teleur te stellen als het lezen niet wil lukken.

  2. Ik heb geen vaste tbr bepaald maar ben wel naar de bibliotheek gegaan voor enkele griezelige boeken. Drie van die vier heb ik ondertussen gelezen plus een recensieboek (De Heksen van Roald Dahl) maar momenteel ligt het even stil vermits ik eerst mijn blogfeed-achterstand wat probeer in te halen.
