As the daughter of the most powerful trader in the Narrows, the sea is the only home seventeen-year-old Fable has ever known. It’s been four years since the night she watched her mother drown during an unforgiving storm. The next day her father abandoned her on a legendary island filled with thieves and little food. To survive she must keep to herself, learn to trust no one and rely on the unique skills her mother taught her. The only thing that keeps her going is the goal of getting off the island, finding her father and demanding her rightful place beside him and his crew. To do so Fable enlists the help of a young trader named West to get her off the island and across the Narrows to her father.

This or That Book Tag

So, today’s post is going to be a little different!

I’ve teamed up with Sammy from We Write At Dawn to do the This or That Book Tag, but we did it with a twist.

I guessed Sammy’s answers! And over on her blog, she guessed mine!

We’ve been friends for over a year and a half – though it feels like I’ve known her my whole life – so we figured that we knew enough about each other and our reading preferences to be able to answer these questions. Even though, I did find it a tad hard!

Below my guesses for Sammy, are my own answers, but make sure you check out Sammy’s post to see her guesses before you check out my answers! If you want to see if my answers for Sammy are correct, make sure you head back over to her post to see her responses!

This was such a fun post to do, and I loved that Sammy was willing to do it with me!

Stuck At Home Book Tag

img_0631Ironically, I’m not actually at home. I’m at the beach staying in a family members private beach house, with a private beach. I’ve plopped my butt in a beach chair, had one too many mimosas, and I’ve been reading and listening to the sounds of the waves crashing. It’s been wonderful, and I don’t have to worry about being sociable to family members I can just get lost in fictional worlds, with amazing characters.

But, with that being said, Sammy over at We Write At Dawn nominated me to do this tag, and therefore, I’m going to. I’m probably a lot behind on the times, but better late than never! Make sure you go and check out her responses and give her post some love! I also had nothing else planned for today’s post, so it works out! I’m always down to do a fun book tag!

Some things are worth waiting for…

Traveling thousands of miles from home to enter college is the only way nineteen-year-old Avery Morgansten can escape what happened at the Halloween party five years ago—an event that forever changed her life. All she needs to do is make it to her classes on time, make sure the bracelet on her left wrist stays in place, not draw any attention to herself, and maybe—please God—make a few friends, because surely that would be a nice change of pace. The one thing she didn’t need and never planned on was capturing the attention of the one guy who could shatter the precarious future she’s building for herself.
