My submission this week:

The Hallowed Ones
The Hallowed Ones #1
by Laura Bickle
Katie is on the verge of her Rumspringa, the time in Amish life when teenagers can get a taste of the real world. But the real world comes to her in this dystopian tale with a philosophical bent. Rumors of massive unrest on the “Outside” abound. Something murderous is out there. Amish elders make a rule: No one goes outside, and no outsiders come in. But when Katie finds a gravely injured young man, she can’t leave him to die. She smuggles him into her family’s barn—at what cost to her community? The suspense of this vividly told, truly horrific thriller will keep the pages turning.

Oh yea! I won this one and I can't wait to read it. It is because of all you great book bloggers that made me want this one!

Any books on your tbr you got because of great reviews?

  1. I just finished this on audio, and more than anything else, I loved the narrator! She handled accents and the Amish language exceptionally well.
    The story was excellent too, but I was a bit disappointed by the second book.
    Can't wait to read your thoughts on it. Enjoy.

  5. I've heard really great things about this series Melissa but I haven't had a chance to read it either. Fail. I feel like despite how many books I read, I still say "I haven't read this" way too often:)
