"The Wood" by Chelsea Bobulski

I finished this book last night before going to bed and I just wanted to share it. This book was a little different than what I thought it was going to be but I ended up enjoying this book by the time I got to the end. I had a hard time putting this book down when I was reading. Especially last night when I was on the last 50 or 60 pages of the book. If you like mystery and/or time travel, then you should try reading this book.

Synopsis: An enchanted wood poisoned at the roots. A girl bound by an inherited duty. And the lost traveler from another time who might help her uncover the truth.

From debut author Chelsea Bobulski comes The Wood, a YA novel filled with dark mystery and atmospheric fantasy.

Winter didn’t ask to be the guardian of the wood, but when her dad inexplicably vanishes, she’s the one who must protect travelers who accidentally slip through the wood’s portals.

The wood is poisoned, changing into something more sinister. Once brightly colored leaves are now bubbling inky black. Vicious creatures that live in the shadows are becoming bolder, torturing lost travelers. Winter must now put her trust in Henry―a young man from eighteenth century England who knows more than he should about the wood―in order to find the truth and those they’ve lost.

Bobulski’s beautiful and eerie young adult debut, is a haunting tale of friendship, family, and the responsibilities we choose and those we do not.

One more round at the bookstore!

I was able to make one more purchase today at my local bookstore. This may be the last time I am able to make a book purchase for a while. I kind of went book crazy while I was off from work and I’m going to have to save my money for a while before I can buy more books again. The good news is I’ll have plenty of books to read for a while.

Anyway, you can see below what I was able to purchase with the money I had left. I think I’ve made out like a bandit but I’m pretty happy with what I’ve got.
