Hype or Like Friday: Book review Passenger, Alexandra Bracken

It's go time

The time has come for the first review of the book of the month for the Hype or Like Friday meme to be published! Check out the group on Goodreads to stay up-to-date with the discussion topics and monthly reads.


I was happy to see Passenger be chosen to be the first read of the group because the cover has been popping around the blogosphere for months and I was curious. Curious enough to read reviews and check comments about it but not enough to buy it as it did not fit into my favorite genres at the time.

If you happen to live on another planet or have managed to miss the hype around the book, here is the blurb:

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.

New Goodreads Meme: Hype or Like Friday

Join The Fun! Hype or Like Friday

Rant and Rave About Books

Hyped LogoCome join Larkin @ Wonderfilled ReadsBrittnee @ Geronimo Reads, and myself over on Goodreads for Hype or Like Friday. Starting Friday, April 8th, we’ll post our first weekly discussion topics, revolving around new and old Hyped-Up books. The discussion topics will vary each week, but we’ll always focus on the hype surrounding certain authors or books that everyone is adding to their TBR piles.

The idea for this group started with Larkin’s Twitter post about A Darker Shade of Magic. Then, Britt recommended that we read Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe, which stemmed a 140 character discussion about overly hyped books and if they were worth reading.  From there, three book bloggers decided to create a weekly meme where other bloggers could share their opinions about overly hyped books. Each week we’ll discuss everything from fantasy to contemporary, as long as…
