Sendback Saturday

Alright, so I have this new idea for weekly memes. Maybe it's not my idea, and I just think it is because I saw this somewhere long ago and idea stuck with me? Who knows. Anywho, my idea is that at certain days a week instead of "waiting on Wednesday" where you post about a book you want to read in the future, this meme is about an older book (at least 2 years) that you want to read. Or an under the radar book that you think looks awesome!

Monday's could be something like ...well I haven't really thought about it. Meandering Mondays? Uh, maybe not. Throwback Thursdays, Flashback Fridays, Way back get the idea. Have a name in mind. Please comment, obviously I need some help on the names!!!

So for today I have two books that look pretty interesting.

Feather (Second Edition, Fully Edited): Book One of the Feather Book Series: Abra Ebner

Estella's magical life as an orphan was never easy, and at eighteen, she is finally free. In her desperate attempt to leave the city behind and unravel her strange talents, she flees to a secluded college nestled deep in the forests of the North Cascades. It is here that she hopes to escape her painful life, and forgotten past. As classes begin, Elle struggles to find her place, until she meets Professor Edgar. Young, handsome, yet terrifying, Elle is suddenly intrigued. Despite her fear of him, she finds the strange attraction mesmerizing, dangerous, and somehow familiar. As their acquaintance grows, she is suddenly drawn further into a life she never knew she lived, in a place that finally feels like home. As her happiness returns, so do the demons of her forgotten past. It is here that she finds herself faced with the sacrifice of her life, and the beginning of a journey deeply rooted in our existence.

This book came out this January, but, I think it qualifies as "under the radar", doesn't it sound good. The sequel is out too, you can check it out here

The Pillar of Light: The Legends of Milana Series: A.L. Travis

When Nani val Dynia awakens in the jungles of Brazil, she has no idea who she is or how she came to the tiny missionary hospital. The only clues to her past lie in the whispered words of a village elder and a forgotten necklace buried at the bottom of a flour jar.

Three years later a group of six teenagers unexpectedly find themselves bound for the same Brazilian jungle, where they meet Nani val Dynia and learn of her strange past. What seems to be an accident whisks the seven friends off to the world of Milana where they quickly find themselves under threat from the Hunters of Avoria.

This book is also an under the radar one, it came out in 2008.

So what do you think? Name ideas? Comment below!

I don't have name ideas yet, but I just wanted to say that this is a great idea. Glad to know you're doing it :) I love discovering old books.
