N is for Never
This year I’m taking a break from Faerie and doing an A to Z of my TBR (to be read) list instead. Each letter will have books starting with that letter on my list, a book I’ve read and reviewed (with the review!) and one of my books matching the letter with a link about more info about the book. I’ve decided not to include words like “A”, “The” and “An” during this challenge.
About the Book I’ve Read
This book was recommended to me on Instagram.
When children go missing in the small coastal town of Astoria, people look to Wendy for answers.
It’s been five years since Wendy and her two brothers went missing in the woods, but when the town’s children start to disappear, the questions surrounding her brothers’ mysterious circumstances are brought back into light. Attempting to flee her past, Wendy almost runs over an unconscious boy lying in the middle of the road, and gets pulled into the mystery haunting the town.
Peter, a boy she thought lived only in her stories, claims that if they don’t do something, the missing children will meet the same fate as her brothers. In order to find them and rescue the missing kids, Wendy must confront what’s waiting for her in the woods.
Check it out on Goodreads.
A dark, thrilling read. The tale of Peter and Wendy as we know it is turned completely on its head and turns into something more like a Hades and Persephone tale.
Well-written with loads of layers to the themes of loss and mental illness (which is handled with care and respect).
Wendy grows a lot as a person and saves herself – and everyone else – in every way a person can be saved.
No idea why it’s labelled as LGBTQ on Goodreads: there are no obvious m/m or f/f relationships and Wendy is as in love with Peter as he is with her. (And it shouldn’t be about the author.)
Love the cover.
I hope you enjoyed this. For more books I’ve read and reviewed, check out either my Pinterest board about reviews or my Goodreads profile. Alternatively, you can check out my reviews on BookBub. Have you read any of the books? Loved or hated any of them?
*FYI, my reviews are my honest opinion and if something bothers me, I tell it straight. How else will anything change? My opinions are based on being a voracious reader and book buyer, not an attack on the author.*
