Goodreads Monday

Goodreads Monday is a weekly meme hosted by PageTurner20.  You need to choose a random book on your Goodreads TBR pile and showcase this cover, with the synopsis!  Remember to link back to the original post and creator…

Here’s mine… Couldn’t decide between these two reads!


Book – Wisteria
Author – Bisi Leyton
Publication date – 15th August 2012
Genre – Young Adult Paranormal Fantasy
Length – 278 pages


Sixteen-year-old Wisteria Kuti has two options – track the infected around the Isle of Smythe or leave the only known safe haven and face a world infested with flesh eating biters.  But even with well-armed trackers, things go wrong and Wisteria ends up alone facing certain death until she is rescued by the mysterious Bach.  Uninfected, Bach is able to survive among the hordes of living dead.

Eighteen-year-old Bach, from a race known as The Family, has no interest in human affairs.  He was sent here to complete his Great Walk and return home as a man – as a Sen Son.  The Family regards humans as Dirt People, but Bach is drawn to this Terran girl, whom he has never seen before, but somehow knows.

Hunted by flesh eaters, cannibals, and the mysterious blood thirsty group called Red Phoenix, Wisteria and Bach make their way back to the Isle of Smythe, a community built on secrets and lies.


Book – Shadow Fall
Author – Audrey Grey
Expected Publication Date – 22 November 2016
Genre – Young Adult Dystopian Fantasy
Length – 368 pages


The asteroid hurtling toward the earth will kill billions.

The Emperor and his Gold Court will be safe in their space station, watching from the stars.  The Silvers will be protected underground.  But the Bronzes must fight it out at the Shadow Trails for the few remaining spots left on the space station.

When an enigmatic benefactor hands Maia Graystone a spot in the Trails, she won’t just get a chance at salvation for her and her baby brother, Max: she gets to confront the mother who abandoned her in prison, the mad Emperor who murdered her father, and the Gold prince who once loved her.  But it’s the dark bastard prince she’s partnered with that will make her question everything, including her own heart.  With the asteroid racing closer every day, Maia must trust someone to survive.

The question is who?



Creativity is my passion, and I have been told that my soul is old, and my body young... Dunno if that is true, but... Anyhoe, gonna start with book reviews, and hauls of the new books I acquire. Maybe if I am better with this blogging thing, I'll expand...
