Goodreads Monday is a weekly meme that was started by Lauren’s Page Turners. The meme is pretty easy to follow, to participate simply choose a random book from your TBR and explain why you want to read it!
This week’s book:
The Bone Houses by Emily Lloyd-Jones
BLURB FROM GOODREADS
Seventeen-year-old Aderyn (“Ryn”) only cares about two things: her family, and her family’s graveyard. And right now, both are in dire straits. Since the death of their parents, Ryn and her siblings have been scraping together a meager existence as gravediggers in the remote village of Colbren, which sits at the foot of a harsh and deadly mountain range that was once home to the fae. The problem with being a gravedigger in Colbren, though, is that the dead don’t always stay dead.
The risen corpses are known as “bone houses,” and legend says that they’re the result of a decades-old curse. When Ellis, an apprentice mapmaker with a mysterious past, arrives in town, the bone houses attack with new ferocity. What is it that draws them near? And more importantly, how can they be stopped for good?
Together, Ellis and Ryn embark on a journey that will take them deep into the heart of the mountains, where they will have to face both the curse and the long-hidden truths about themselves.
Why I Want to Read This
Ever since my fabulous friend Autumn @Chapter Malliumpkin told me all about this book and the great disability rep in it this has been on my TBR. It’s getting released in paperback soon so I hope I’ll be able to buy it then. I love getting to read books that feature any sort of disability rep and I believe this one shows chronic pain, I’m not sure if it’s #OwnVoices written but it’ll be #OwnVoices reviewed by me as I live with chronic pain and can’t even remember the last day I was pain free as I have experienced serious pain since I was 11 years old.
Have you read The Bone Houses? Did you like it? Or is it on your TBR?
