Today I`m going to tell you what I am currently reading.
DRUM ROLL PLEASE
Doon by Carey Corp & Lorie Langdon
Veronica doesn’t think she’s going crazy. But why can’t anyone else see the mysterious blond boy who keeps popping up wherever she goes? When her best friend, Mackenna, invites her to spend the summer in Scotland, Veronica jumps at the opportunity to leave her complicated life behind for a few months.
But the Scottish countryside holds other plans.
Not only has the imaginary kilted boy followed her to Alloway, she and Mackenna uncover a strange set of rings and a very unnerving letter from Mackenna’s great aunt—and when the girls test the instructions Aunt Gracie left behind, they find themselves transported to a land that defies explanation. Doon seems like a real-life fairy tale, complete with one prince who has eyes for Mackenna and another who looks suspiciously like the boy from Veronica’s daydreams. But Doon has a dark underbelly as well. The two girls could have everything they’ve longed for…or they could end up breaking an enchantment and find themselves trapped in a world that has become a nightmare.
I`m LOVING this book so far!! Like, oh gosh! It`s amazing. It has princes, castles, witches and it has gotten me obsessed with Scotland. I haven`t finished this book yet but I do know a way to also get you hooked without having written the review yet. Let me put it this way.
What if you, as a modern young woman at the cusp of adulthood, had the opportunity to step into a misty Scottish fairy tale? Would you take it–even if it means that there might be no going back? Such is the dilemma facing Veronica & Kenna, two best friends who go for a post-high school graduation trip to Scotland, only to find that the mists in this lovely country hide secrets far beyond their imagining.
I LOVE the way the two authors of this novel deftly weave the contemporary worldviews of their heroines that are juxtaposed with the fairy tale realities that they encounter.
I only have a couple of pages left and when I am done I will write the best review ever that will make you run to the nearest bookstore and buy a copy.
Just wait and see…
