There are so many interesting books releasing lately that I really need more hours in a day. Or maybe even a few extra days in a week, haha. One of these releases is Winter, White and Wicked by Shannon Dittemore. Today during my stop on the book tour hosted by TBR and Beyond Tours I’ll tell you a bit about the book. Keep on reading to find out more!
Winter, White and Wicked by Shannon Dittemore
Genre: Young Adult Fantasy
Publishing Date: October 13, 2020
Mad Max: Fury Road meets Frozen in this striking YA fantasy about a rig driver’s journey to save her friend
Twice-orphaned Sylvi has chipped out a niche for herself on Layce, an island cursed by eternal winter. Alone in her truck, she takes comfort in two things: the solitude of the roads and the favor of Winter, an icy spirit who has protected her since she was a child.
Sylvi likes the road, where no one asks who her parents were or what she thinks of the rebels in the north. But when her best friend, Lenore, runs off with the rebels, Sylvi must make a haul too late in the season for a smuggler she wouldn’t normally work with, the infamous Mars Dresden. Alongside his team—Hyla, a giant warrior woman and Kyn, a boy with skin like stone—Sylvi will do whatever it takes to save her friend.
But when the time comes, she’ll have to choose: safety, anonymity, and the favor of Winter—or the future of the island that she calls home.

Winter, White and Wicked sounds like an interesting read! The cover is also stunning. Like I said at the beginning, I really need more time during the week to read all the books I want to read.
