This Sunday, I am currently reading Passenger by Alexandra Bracken. I started this book on Friday after receiving the book on the release date on Tuesday. I am hoping to finish it by this Monday/Tuesday because her signing is next Saturday!
It is very exciting. This is my first Alexandra Brackens book and I love it! Seriously, although we are thrown into this world out of nowhere — which is a bit confusing — it also makes me very curious as what happens next. I don’t know and can’t guess what will happen. Also, her descriptions are vivid and brings the characters to life.
I am only 200 pages in, a little under halfway through, but I feel like I’ll
really like this book, and I hope I do too! I am reading this book with a book club I am a part of @bibliophileacademy. If you plan to read it too, join us on instagram or goodreads to chat about this book!
What are you reading this Sunday?
by Alexandra Bracken
i. A brief section of music composed of a series of notes and flourishes.
ii. A journey by water; a voyage.
iii. The transition from one place to another, across space and time.
In one devastating night, violin prodigy Etta Spencer loses everything she knows and loves. Thrust into an unfamiliar world by a stranger with a dangerous agenda, Etta is certain of only one thing: she has traveled not just miles but years from home. And she’s inherited a legacy she knows nothing about from a family whose existence she’s never heard of. Until now.
Nicholas Carter is content with his life at sea, free from the Ironwoods—a powerful family in the colonies—and the servitude he’s known at their hands. But with the arrival of an unusual passenger on his ship comes the insistent pull of the past that he can’t escape and the family that won’t let him go so easily. Now the Ironwoods are searching for a stolen object of untold value, one they believe only Etta, Nicholas’ passenger, can find. In order to protect her, he must ensure she brings it back to them— whether she wants to or not.
Together, Etta and Nicholas embark on a perilous journey across centuries and continents, piecing together clues left behind by the traveler who will do anything to keep the object out of the Ironwoods’ grasp. But as they get closer to the truth of their search, and the deadly game the Ironwoods are playing, treacherous forces threaten to separate Etta not only from Nicholas but from her path home . . . forever
