#FridayFeature The Girl in Red by Christina Henry

This week’s books is one I recently picked up from my library. I reserved it about a month ago, but we only just received a copy at our branch. It’s brand new & I’m the first to check it out! Yay! I probably wont get to reading it for a few weeks though. Right now, I’m still reading Wildcat and Moby Dick.

FEATURE FRIDAY


The fellow across the fire gave Red the once-over, from the wild corkscrews of her hair peeking out from under her red hood to the small hand axe that rested on the ground beside her. First Line

It’s not safe for anyone alone in the woods. There are predators that come out at night: critters and coyotes, snakes and wolves. But the woman in the red jacket has no choice. Not since the Crisis came, decimated the population, and sent those who survived fleeing into quarantine camps that serve as breeding grounds for death, destruction, and disease. She is just a woman trying not to get killed in a world that doesn’t look anything like the one she grew up in, the one that was perfectly sane and normal and boring until three months ago.

There are worse threats in the woods than the things that stalk their prey at night. Sometimes, there are men. Men with dark desires, weak wills, and evil intents. Men in uniform with classified information, deadly secrets, and unforgiving orders. And sometimes, just sometimes, there’s something worse than all of the horrible people and vicious beasts combined.

Red doesn’t like to think of herself as a killer, but she isn’t about to let herself get eaten up just because she is a woman alone in the woods….

There was nothing and no one and no noise and that was the thing she realized was bothering her – the lack of noise. Page 56

QUESTION OF THE WEEK


Have you ever read a library book you loved so much, you just HAD to own it, so you bought a copy for yourself after returning the library book you had already finished?

Hmmm, no not exactly. I usually only read a book once, so I don’t really feel the need to have a copy. I have however read a public domain book, like Moby Dick and went out to buy a nicer edition of it. Moby Dick is one of my favorite books, so i have a few different leather copies. I also have leather bound sets from Jules Verne & H.G. Wells, my two favorite authors.

I'm an avid reader and love most all books, but my favorite genres tend to be mystery, adventure, science fiction and classics. Genres I tend to shy away from include romance, contemporary fiction and chick lit. If I’m not actually reading books, I’m probably at work shelving them at my local library.
