I came across this meme and thought it sounded like a lot of fun. I like the idea of YOU choosing a book for me! It’s hosted by Because Reading is better than real life and you can click on the button to get all the deets. But in a nutshell, I give you 3 books, you vote and I’ll review the book by the end of Feb.
So these are my three options and I’m choosing them all from books I’ve bought but never got around to reading.
Last Kiss by Louise Phillips:
Why I bought it? It sounds dark and scary and I love that! Plus it’s an Irish author that I’ve wanted to read for sometime.
In a quiet suburb, a woman desperately clings to her sanity as a shadowy presence moves objects around her home.
In a hotel room across the city, an art dealer with a dubious sexual past is found butchered, his body arranged to mimic the Hangman card from the Tarot deck.
But what connects them?
When criminal psychologist Dr Kate Pearson is brought in to help investigate the murder, she finds herself plunged into a web of sexual power and evil which spreads from Dublin to Paris, and then to Rome.
Will Kate discover the identity of the killer before it’s too late to protect the innocent? But what separates the innocent from the guilty when the sins of the past can never be forgotten?
Sloppy Firsts (Jessica Darling, #1:
Why I bought it? It sounds funny and quirky and I’ve seen gushing reviews. I wanted a new laugh out loud book to gush about too!
“My parents suck ass. Banning me from the phone and restricting my computer privileges are the most tyrannical parental gestures I can think of. Don’t they realize that Hope’s the only one who keeps me sane? . . . I don’t see how things could get any worse.”
When her best friend, Hope Weaver, moves away from Pineville, New Jersey, hyperobservant sixteen-year-old Jessica Darling is devastated. A fish out of water at school and a stranger at home, Jessica feels more lost than ever now that the only person with whom she could really communicate has gone.
How is she supposed to deal with the boy- and shopping-crazy girls at school, her dad’s obsession with her track meets, her mother salivating over big sister Bethany’s lavish wedding, and her nonexistent love life?
Consequences by Aleatha Romig
Why I bought it? I bought this one at an author signing as I heard the magic words that get me every time….secrets….trickery….confusing.
Every action has consequences. Waking in an unfamiliar bedroom in a luxurious mansion, Claire Nichols is terrified to discover that a chance encounter led her into the cruel hands of her abductor, Anthony Rawlings. Claire has no understanding of why she’s there, but it’s been made abundantly clear-she is now his acquisition and every action has consequences.
Learn the rules to survive. Facing incomprehensible circumstances, Claire must learn to survive her new reality-every aspect of her livelihood depends upon the tall, dark-eyed tycoon who is a true master of deception. Driven by unknown demons, he has no tolerance for imperfection, in any aspect of his life, including his recent acquisition. Anthony may appear to the world as a handsome, benevolent businessman, but in reality Claire knows firsthand that he’s a menacing, controlling captor with very strict rules: do as you’re told, public failure is not an option, and appearances are of the utmost importance.
Captivate the captor. To fit together the pieces of the puzzle, Claire must follow his rules. Will her plan work, or will Anthony become enthralled by Claire’s beauty, resilience, and determination, changing the game forever?
Over to you, no such thing as a free ride around here, you have to do some work too! Which do you want to see me read and review before the end of Feb? And I’d love to hear your reasoning down in the comments too. So go vote and then talk to me!
