On My WishList (#20)

On My Wishlist is a fun weekly event hosted by Book Chick City and runs every Saturday. It's where I list all the books I desperately want but haven't actually bought yet. They can be old, new or forthcoming. It's also an event that you can join in with too - Mr Linky is always at the ready for you to link your own 'On My Wishlist' post. If you want to know more click here.

Sorry that I haven't been able to update the blog this week. It's been hectic and the time just flies real fast. It's hard to keep up but I'm doing the best I can. So the blog is still alive.

The Ritual by Adam Nevill

And on the third day things did not get better. The rain fell hard and cold, the white sun never broke through the low grey cloud, and they were lost. But it was the dead thing they found hanging from a tree that changed the trip beyond recognition. When four old University friends set off into the Scandinavian wilderness of the Arctic Circle, they aim to briefly escape the problems of their lives and reconnect with one another. But when Luke, the only man still single and living a precarious existence, finds he has little left in common with his well-heeled friends, tensions rise. With limited fitness and experience between them, a shortcut meant to ease their hike turns into a nightmare scenario that could cost them their lives. Lost, hungry, and surrounded by forest untouched for millennia, Luke figures things couldn't possibly get any worse. But then they stumble across an old habitation. Ancient artefacts decorate the walls and there are bones scattered upon the dry floors. The residue of old rites and pagan sacrifice for something that still exists in the forest. Something responsible for the bestial presence that follows their every step. And as the four friends stagger in the direction of salvation, they learn that death doesn't come easy among these ancient trees...

Random Thoughts

I love watching book reviews on youtube and someone (don't remember who...I'm so sorry...) gave this book 5 out of 5 stars. She read the book in a day and thought it was a creepy and exciting book. It's not a young adult but that's ok. I read a lot of ya books and books for adult so I don't mind. I really want to read this one. It really sounds like a good read for me!

It's a very short list. I know...but it's the only book I can think of now that I really, really want!
