This weekly meme was started by @Lauren’s Page Turners. To participate, choose a random book from your GoodReads TBR and show it off. Which sounds easy enough until you have to decide how to choose that book! I think I will use a different way each week, like picking a color or number of pages. I will let you know each week how I chose the book and then something interesting about it, like how it ended up on the list or why I want to read it. Got it? Okay let’s get started.
For this week’s book I decided to choose something that had to do with summer. Either the title had to make me think summer or the cover had to look summery. This proved to be harder than I thought it would be. Apparently summer is not something I gravitate towards at least when it comes to books. But I did finally come up with a couple of covers that I thought looked pretty summery and then just picked one to talk about. I’m pretty excited about reading this one, I hope you will be too.
Small Favors by Erin A. Craig
Publication Date: July 27, 2021
Ellerie Downing lives in the quiet town of Amity Falls in the Blackspire Mountain range–five narrow peaks stretching into the sky like a grasping hand, bordered by a nearly impenetrable forest from which the early townsfolk fought off the devils in the woods. To this day, visitors are few and rare. But when a supply party goes missing, some worry that the monsters that once stalked the region have returned.
As fall turns to winter, more strange activities plague the town. They point to a tribe of devilish and mystical creatures who promise to fulfill the residents’ deepest desires, however grand and impossible, for just a small favor. But their true intentions are much more sinister, and Ellerie finds herself in a race against time before all of Amity Falls, her family, and the boy she loves go up in flames.
This is such a beautiful cover, and it makes you think that this will be a light and happy read, until you read the summery that is. I just loved House of Salt and Sorrows and can’t wait to read this one. I did manage to get an ARC on NetGalley and will be reading it soon, which is just making me giddy with joy! I think it will be a really good summer read!
Are there any summer books you are looking forward to reading this year? Leave me a comment, I would love to hear what you have planned!
