Goodreads Monday (7/13/20)–Demon Road

Happy Monday, bibliophiles!

Goodreads Monday is a weekly meme created by Lauren’s Page Turners. All you have to do to participate is pick a book from your Goodreads TBR, and explain why you want to read it.

This book has been on my TBR for AGES (since early 2017, to be exact), and I figured that I’d take an older addition to my list for this week’s Goodreads Monday. I’m definitely a fan of Derek Landy after reading Skulduggery Pleasant (though I never got around to finishing the series…*sigh*), so I’m excited to see what else he has in store!

Let’s begin, shall we?

GOODREADS MONDAY (7/13/20)–DEMON ROAD by Derek Landy

Demon Road by Derek Landy book review - SciFiNow - The World's ...

Blurb from Goodreads:

Killer cars, vampires, undead serial killers: they’re all here. And the demons? Well, that’s where Amber comes in…

Sixteen years old, smart and spirited, she’s just a normal American teenager until the lies are torn away and the demons reveal themselves.

Forced to go on the run, she hurtles from one threat to another, revealing a tapestry of terror woven into the very fabric of her life. Her only chance rests with her fellow travellers, who are not at all what they appear to be…

So why do I want to read this?

Looking back, the synopsis is…rather sparse, not gonna lie there. But hey, it’s Derek Landy, I’ll take the bait. Even though I only got around to reading up to The Faceless Ones in the Skulduggery Pleasant series (I couldn’t find any of them after book 3 for some reason…), I have clear and very fond memories of how much I enjoyed those books. Well-written, witty, and pure supernatural fun.

So maybe I have my expectations high, but that’s what I want to get out of Demon Road as well. Nothing like a crazy, paranormal road trip to lift your spirits. And since Skulduggery Pleasant was a *tiny bit* more on the MG side (though it’s probably in that sweet spot between MG and YA, truth be told), I’m interested to see how Landy’s style translates to a full-on YA novel. Fingers tightly crossed that this will be just as good!

Today’s song:

This just…popped into my head for no reason this morning? I haven’t heard it in so long…

That’s it for this week’s Goodreads Monday! Have a wonderful rest of your day, and take care of yourselves!
