From the Review Pile is a meme hosted by Stepping Out of the Page every Thursday.
The aim of this meme is to showcase books that you've received for review (or if you don't receive review books, any book that you own and really want to read/review) but haven't yet got around to reading, in order to give the book some extra publicity.
I know that a lot of you have a huge pile of books that you want to read/review, but it understandably takes a while to get around to reading them all - here you can give a book (or two!) some of the publicity that it deserves, even if you haven't read it yet!
This week, I'm going to showcase Above!Above is a much anticipated book which has had a lot of people excited, and I can understand why! Above sounds like an amalgamation of a lot of different ideas from books that I've read and loved, and the main theme particularly reminds me of Room, which I enjoyed. I want to pick this up soon and I really hope that it lives up to all of my excitement!
Above by Isla Morley

NOTHING IS AS IT SEEMS...
Blythe, a sixteen-year-old Kansas schoolgirl is abducted and kept in an abandoned silo by a survivalist, who is
convinced that the world is about to end.
Struggling to survive, crushed by loneliness and the terrifying madness of her captor, Blythe resists the temptation to give up. Nothing, however, prepares her for the burden of having to raise a child in confinement.
Just when Blythe starts to believe that she may be confined to the silo for life, their lives are ambushed by one event that is at once promising and devastating...
THINK YOU KNOW WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN? YOU REALLY DON'T...
