Talk about a book to get excited about! The cover was the first thing that caught my eye (I LOVE the background), but as soon as I read the synopsis, this book was quickly added to my to-read list. I have always been obsessed with stories of Atlantis, and this book seems to be a variation on that story, so how could I not want to read it?? People have said that this book is creepy and enchanting (makes sense since there are Monster Mothers), so I cannot wait to check it out for myself! The only thing I am upset about is that we already know who the bad guy is.
I guess South Korea was right when they called her evil…
What are you looking forward to read this week?
