Shelf Control #3 – The Uninvited

Shelf Control is all about the books we want to read and already own! Sometimes the best books are right underneath our noses!

Each Wednesday, following Bookshelf Fantasies I will be highlighting one book off of my large pile of unread books that I own! Hopefully it will spark some interest and encourage me to read just a little more!

My Shelf Control pick of the week is:

The Uninvited

Title: The Uninvited

Author: Tin Wynne-Jones

Published: May 12, 2009

Length:  353 Pages

Synopsis via GoodreadsMimi Shapiro had a disturbing freshman year at NYU, thanks to a foolish affair with a professor who still haunts her caller ID. So when her artist father, Marc, offers the use of his remote Canadian cottage, she’s glad to hop in her Mini Cooper and drive up north. The house is fairy-tale quaint, and the key is hidden right where her dad said it would be, so she’s shocked to find someone already living there — Jay, a young musician, who is equally startled to meet Mimi and immediately accuses her of leaving strange and threatening tokens inside: a dead bird, a snakeskin, a cricket sound track embedded in his latest composition. But Mimi has just arrived, so who is responsible? And more alarmingly, what does the intruder want?

Part gripping thriller, part family drama, this fast-paced novel plays out in alternating viewpoints, in a pastoral setting that is evocative and eerie — a mysterious character in its own right

How I Got It: I have had this book so long (shame on me), I really have no idea!

When I Got It: April 21, 2013

Why I Want to Read it: It sounds interesting, and sometimes I do enjoy a good mystery, but it’s definitely not what I’m usually drawn to. It doesn’t have the best ratings compared to what I usually read, but that doesn’t mean it’ll be bad! I will have to pick this one up soon!
