TBR Thursday (2)

Hey guys! Happy Thursday!! So today I thought I would participate in a new meme created by Words with Sarah called TBR Thursday. I think this is a great way to reduce our ever growing TBR piles.  So, what you do is you pick a book that's been in sitting in your TBR pile for a good while that you plan on reading/reviewing this week. However, I not only plan to pick a book in this post but also review a TBR book. So every Thursday I will have a review of a book that's been in my TBR pile for a while and also tell you which TBR book I will read the following week :) Today I will be reviewing out of my TBR pile Lost Girls by Ann Kelley...I will reveal what book I will review next Thursday at the end of my post.

No parents. No rules. No way home.
Fourteen-year-old Bonnie MacDonald couldn't be more excited for a camping trip on an island off the coast of Thailand. But when a strong current sweeps Bonnie and her friends past their appointed campsite, depositing them instead on what the boatman calls a "forbidden island," they're just happy to have reached dry land.
Overnight, things take a turn for the worse. Three torturous days pass, but the boatman doesn't return, and what once seemed like a vacation in paradise becomes a battle against the elements.
Peppered with short, frantic entries from Bonnie's journal as she struggles to survive, Lost Girls tells the page-turning, heart-pounding story of a group of teen girls fighting for their lives.


I really enjoyed reading this book. It reminded me of Lord of the Flies except with all girls instead of guys. This book is all about survival and the trials that the girls go through which causes them to have to grow up very quickly. I really liked the main character Bonnie because she presents herself as very strong and a great leader despite her age. I also loved her best friend.  With every page turn there was a different adventure and that was one aspect of the book that I really enjoyed. If you like books that are suspenseful and all about survival then you will definitely love this book!

So next week I will be reading and reviewing....*drum roll please*....Tempest by Julie Cross!

So you guys should totally join in on the fun of this new meme :) What's your next read from your TBR pile?

That's a great way of getting through the review pile! I haven't read this book but it sounds good!

I love this idea!!! I tried doing a TBR Jar in 2014, which worked until I fell off the wagon, but I'm tackling it again this year (and reorganizing and cataloging ALL my tbr books (audio, ebooks and physical ones). It's been both wonderful (because I keep finding books I forgot I owned) and painful, since the number of books is truly daunting. But I will read more TBR books this year, and cheer on your weekly meme too!

I really like this idea too! This book sounds pretty cool, I would say from the cover alone I wouldn't have thought to pick it up (despite that old adage). I also wanted to tell you that your blog layout is GORGEOUS!!! Anyway, looking forward to reading more from you :)

Thanks! Actually the cover is what drew me in initially

Adriana Garcia said...

I love this feature! It's a great way to get a bunch of my older tbr books read already. I might do this in the summer. Lost Girls cover is really beautiful. I love that Bonnie is such a strong female protagonist/leader. I don't know why but she makes me think of Clarke from The 100 based on your description.
