February Book Club {2016}

 
 
Another month, another book club selection! This year we have picked a few newer releases, which has been really fun. I think for the first half of the year we actually have all new releases lined up. March and April will bring books in some of our favorite series to an end so we are feeling pretty pumped for book club 2016. For February I chose Passenger by Alexandra Bracken. I've seen this around on a few book blogs and loved the time travel premise, so I'm excited to dig in and see if it lives up to the hype. We'd love for you to join us and then come back at the end of the month to discuss!

 
 

Passenger by Alexandra Bracken
 
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
