Hi guys, I decided I didn’t want to step away from my blog while I am in Okc on a “downer” of a note. (AKA Last post) A friend of mine had to remind me of something yesterday that was helpful…. Remember how happy I was when Marissa got engaged? Remember how much you love cheering on your Thunder? And her point was that due to my state of mind this weekend I need to make a real conscious effort to enjoy the trip home IN THE MOMENT. Live in Marissa’s happiness at her Bridal Shower and feel the love of the crowd at the Thunder game. It was honestly wonderful advice, and it won’t be easy but I am gonna try. Anyways back to todays post….. I wanted to leave you all on a post of something I love… BOOKS! And this is a good one….
Something is out there . . .
Something terrifying that must not be seen. One glimpse and a person is driven to deadly violence. No one knows what it is or where it came from.
Five years after it began, a handful of scattered survivors remain, including Malorie and her two young children. Living in an abandoned house near the river, she has dreamed of fleeing to a place where they might be safe. Now, that the boy and girl are four, it is time to go. But the journey ahead will be terrifying: twenty miles downriver in a rowboat—blindfolded—with nothing to rely on but her wits and the children’s trained ears. One wrong choice and they will die. And something is following them. But is it man, animal, or monster?
Engulfed in darkness, surrounded by sounds both familiar and frightening, Malorie embarks on a harrowing odyssey—a trip that takes her into an unseen world and back into the past, to the companions who once saved her. Under the guidance of the stalwart Tom, a motely group of strangers banded together against the unseen terror, creating order from the chaos. But when supplies ran low, they were forced to venture outside—and confront the ultimate question: in a world gone mad, who can really be trusted?
I discovered this book from a Buzzed list of most suspenseful books and that sure does nail this one on the head! This is a completely new take on an apocalyptic world and this is one that includes some sort of creatures. I read this book in 3 nights because well sure, it was an easy fast read but I couldn’t put it down!!! It was just the right amount of scary to make me question a sound in my room while reading but not to give me nightmares! You guys need to read this book…… it is such a unique book, I cannot compare it to anything out there! DO IT!
