Book Friday! On The Look Out

Kristen Twin here. I’m listing the upcoming books we can’t wait to read. There are a lot of awesome books coming out this fall and too many to list in one blog. I decided to choose two books this week. So, here are my two picks… The first book is Wendy Darling by Colleen Oakes. This book is a retelling of Peter Pan but with a dark twist on the classic story. I received the ARC and plan on starting this book this weekend. It sounds amazing and I can’t wait to go back to Neverland. The next book is The Red Sun by Alane Adams. This book brings Norse Mythology to life and gives you a great adventure with witches, magical creatures and Norse Gods. If you like Percy Jackson, you’ll love The Red Sun. I recently read this book and we will have a review up Monday! Yay! I am SO excited for these books to come out! I’m a big fan of the story of Peter Pan and the adventures of Percy Jackson. These books are perfect to escape reality and immerse yourself into another world!

From the Best-Selling Author of Queen of Hearts comes a dark and mesmerizing twist on the beloved Children’s Classic, Peter Pan.

Wendy Darling has a perfectly agreeable life with her parents and brothers in wealthy London, as well as a budding romance with Booth, the neighborhood bookseller’s son. But while their parents are at a ball, the charmingly beautiful Peter Pan comes to the Darling children’s nursery and—dazzled by this flying boy with god-like powers—they follow him out of the window and straight on to morning, to Neverland, a intoxicating island of feral freedom.

As time passes in Neverland, Wendy realizes that this Lost Boy’s paradise of turquoise seas, mermaids, and pirates holds terrible secrets rooted in blood and greed. As Peter’s grasp on her heart tightens, she struggles to remember where she came from—and begins to suspect that this island of dreams, and the boy who desires her—have the potential to transform into an everlasting nightmare.
