BOOK HOARDER’S SELECTION, is a feature of Reading In Winter, which will feature one book from my collection that I plan to read in the coming week. These are NOT review books, but books I’ve purchased or have been gifted, which have been neglected for a long time.
TITLE: Once Every Never (Never, #1)
AUTHOR: Lesley Livingston
HOW LONG I’VE HAD IT: Well, I got my first copy, an ARC, from Ambur over at Burning Impossibly Bright in August, I believe, and THEN I got my second copy, a finished and signed copy from Ashley and Christie over at A & C Book Junkies in November.
WHY I’M READING IT: Well, with having TWO freaking copies of this book, I feel that it’s due time I read it. Plus, I’ve heard it’s absolutely wonderful AND it’s written by a Canadian author. Plus, isn’t that cover amazing??
Clarinet Reid is a pretty typical teenager.
On the surface.
She’s smart, but a bit of a slacker; outgoing, but just a little insecure; not exactly a mischief-maker, but trouble tends to find her wherever she goes.
Also? She unwittingly carries a centuries-old Druid Blood Curse running through her veins.
Now, with a single thoughtless act, what started off as the Summer Vacation in Dullsville suddenly spirals into a deadly race to find a stolen artifact, avert an explosive catastrophe, save a Celtic warrior princess, right a dreadful wrong that happened centuries before Clare was even born, and if there’s still time, literally, maybe even get a date.
This is the kind of adventure that happens to a girl once every, never.
