OMYG-O-S-H!!! I just found this meme! It looks so COOL! Ok, calm down Alex. Don’t scare them away. *Deep breath, out through the nose* Lets give it a go, k?
Searching Saturday is a weekly meme created by Nikki @TheNightIsDarkAndFullOfBooks
The topic for today is “Search for books that have under 1.000 Goodreads ratings but are published at least 2 months ago.”
Spindle by Shonna Slayton
In a world where fairies lurk and curses linger, love can bleed like the prick of a finger…
Briar Rose knows her life will never be a fairy tale. She’s raising her siblings on her own, her wages at the spinning mill have been cut, and the boy she thought she had a future with has eyes for someone else. Most days it feels like her best friend, Henry Prince, is the only one in her corner…though with his endless flirty jokes, how can she ever take him seriously?
When a mysterious peddler offers her a “magic” spindle that could make her more money, sneaking it into the mill seems worth the risk. But then one by one, her fellow spinner girls come down with the mysterious sleeping sickness…and Briar’s not immune.
If Briar wants to save the girls—and herself—she’ll have to start believing in fairy tales…and in the power of a prince’s kiss.
This one seems interesting….
The Merchant of Death by D. J. MacHale
Bobby Pendragon is a seemingly normal fourteen-year-old boy. He has a family, a home, and even Marley, his beloved dog. But there is something very special about Bobby.
He is going to save the world.
And not just Earth as we know it. Bobby is slowly starting to realize that life in the cosmos isn’t quite what he thought it was. And before he can object, he is swept off to an alternate dimension known as Denduron, a territory inhabited by strange beings, ruled by a magical tyrant, and plagued by dangerous revolution.
If Bobby wants to see his family again, he’s going to have to accept his role as savior, and accept it wholeheartedly. Because, as he is about to discover, Denduron is only the beginning….
I have one book in this series, but I haven’t read it. (and I know this has almost 40,000 ratings, I couldn’t find anything else! I searched all over Goodreads! So, just leave me alone on this!)
This was quite a bit harder then I thought it would be.
