The Time Will Come (1)
The Time Will Come is a weekly meme hosted by Jodie at Books for Company, where we can highlight the books on our shelves that we’ve been meaning to get to for some time, but have been put on the back burner for one reason or another.
This sounds like a great meme! I just found out about it through another blogger that I follow, and I thought I’d participate! I don’t plan on having too many memes on this blog, but as of right now I’m trying to read a lot so that I can schedule my reviews ahead of time, and I hope to eventually have 1-2 reviews a week, and only occasionally participate in memes.
Anyway, the book that I chose for this week is:
Susan Beth Pfeffer
Published in 2006 by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
Miranda’s disbelief turns to fear in a split second when a meteor knocks the moon closer to the earth. How should her family prepare for the future when worldwide tsunamis wipe out the coasts, earthquakes rock the continents, and volcanic ash blocks out the sun? As summer turns to Arctic winter, Miranda, her two brothers, and their mother retreat to the unexpected safe haven of their sunroom, where they subsist on stockpiled food and limited water in the warmth of a wood-burning stove.
Told in journal entries, this is the heart-pounding story of Miranda’s struggle to hold on to the most important resource of all–hope–in an increasingly desperate and unfamiliar world. (From Goodreads)
I wanted to read this book, along with the other two books in the series, all last year. I bought them and planned on reading them soon, but more and more books ended up taking precedence. Then, when I started thinking about what I was definitely going to read this year, these were at the top of my list. But once again other books have been all shiny and new, calling my name, and this series isn’t even in my current TBR stack (I just started making a stack – and it’s only about 8 books. I don’t want to stack all of my TBR books – that would be half of my inventory!). But one of these days, I will get to this series!
