Today, I'm partnering with Irish Banana Blog Tours to promote THE WOLF ROAD by Beth Lewis!
What better way to promote and amazing book than with a mood board for #MoodBoardMonday?
It took me a very long time to find the pictures that I wanted to use for this book, but I am so happy with how my moodboard turned out!
I have to say that I really like Elka. I tried my best in the moodboard to represent her.
Did you pick any specific characters or scenes to be represented in your Moodboard?
As I mentioned in my last answer, I tried to grab pictures that represents Elka or parts of her past. I wanted to capture who she was as a person along with the tragedies & realizations she has had.
Did your Mood Board take a specific color scheme? If you actively chose one, why did you chose that specific color?
I think that my mood board took a woodlands color scheme, which is completely understandable. Elka spends her life in the forest, learning how to survive with Trapper, so I felt that the majority of the pictures should be tied into the forest in some way, shape or form.
Was there a picture that you just couldn't find to incorporate into your mood board? If you can answer it with little to no spoilers, tell us how it related to the book!
This time around, I don't think that there was a picture that I couldn't find. There were a bunch of shots that I originally considered for the moodboard, but I found other shots that captured the essence of Elka and The Wolf Road a little bit better. I am extremely happy with how this mood board turned out!
I will say that while some of the pictures represent Elka herself, I tried to find other pictures that represented the situations she has dealt with in the past and in the future. The wanted poster, the storm and the cabin in the woods are examples of those, but I am not going to tell you exactly what happens!
If you read the book, what was your rating for it? Link us to your review if you have one! :)
I don't have a review for this one, but I have included a bunch of additional information on this book in case you want to learn more about The Wolf Road, Beth Lewis, or you want to order the book for yourself! All of the information you need is located below.
ABOUT THE BOOK:In her debut novel THE WOLF ROAD (July 5, 2016; Crown), author and managing editor at London’s Titan Books Beth Lewis introduces us to a world decimated by an unnamed, apocalyptic event and inhabited by desperate people accustomed to hunting, tracking, and killing to survive. Among them is Elka, the young heroine whose unmistakable voice guides us through the untamed landscape of the area formerly known as British Columbia on her journey to escape the horrors of her own past.
Everything Elka knows of the world she learned from the man she calls Trapper, a solitary hunter who took her under his wing when she was just seven years old. He has taught her how to shoot, track, set snares, and start fires—all the skills necessary to survive in a wild, lawless land where men are at the mercy of the elements and one another. But when wanted posters begin appearing in town, Elka realizes that the man she thinks she knows so well is harboring terrible secrets. The more Elka finds out about him, the less sure she becomes about her own identity—especially as she begins to recover some of the painful memories she’s kept at bay throughout her childhood.
As the horrific facts emerge, Elka makes her escape, armed with nothing but her knife and the survival skills he’s taught her. She sets out in the hope of finding her true parents, who traveled to the frozen north years earlier in pursuit of gold, but Elka can tell by the shadows that follow her that Trapper’s on her trail—and he won’t be letting his little girl go without a fight. As she encounters physical hardships, violence, and loneliness that at times test her sanity, she also strains to distinguish between fact and fiction in her own recollections. Ultimately, she will have to turn and confront not just Trapper but the dark reality of her past.
THE WOLF ROAD is a tautly suspenseful cat-and-mouse tale of justice and revenge, played out against a vast, unforgiving landscape—told by an unforgettable, tough-as-nails young heroine fighting desperately to escape the terrors of her childhood and rejoin humanity.

—Booklist on The Wolf Road
“A white-knuckle trip through a gritty, frightening, and all-too-plausible post-apocalypse. You won’t know whether to root for or be afraid of heroine Elka, and you won’t be able to put the book down."
—Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts
“Stark and soulful, The Wolf Road is a brutal yet poignant journey into the truth of one girl’s origins in a shattered wilderness. It masterfully dances between the savagery of the wild and the raw, blunt humor of frontier logic. A rollicking, striking read.”
