This weekly meme was started by @Lauren’s Page Turners. It is now being hosted by Budget Tales Book Blog. 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.
Just found this one and had to add it to my TBR. It comes out next week and it is by a local author whose previous books I have really liked. Plus this cover is super creepy and that title! It also sounds quite bloody and twisty. I can hardly wait to read it!
Into the Bloodred Woods by Martha Brockenbrough
Publication Date: November 2, 2021
Summary from Goodreads:
Happily ever after is a lie.
Once upon a time there was a kingdom, and a forest that liked to eat men, and a girl who would change everything, but not alone …
There’s no such thing as once upon a time.
In a faraway land, populated by were beasts and surrounded by a powerful forest, lies a kingdom about to be sent into chaos. On his deathbed, King Tyran divides his land, leaving half to each of his two children — so they’ll rule together. However, his son, Albrecht, is not satisfied with half a kingdom. And even though his sister, Ursula, is the first born, he decides that, as a girl and were bear, she is unfit to rule. So he invades her land, slaughtering her people and most of the were beasts, and claims it for himself.
As King Albrecht builds his iron rule and an army to defend his reign, Ursula is gathering the survivors and making plans to seize back the kingdom. Not just her half — the whole thing. Because Albrecht should have never been allowed to sit on the throne, and Ursula is going to take his crown. And if he’s not careful, he might not get to keep his head either.
Well this certainly has me wanting this book! Next week can’t come soon enough. Until next time, Happy Reading!
