Got My Eye On, March 2018, Edition 1


Need more books? Maybe something here will tempt you :)

I saw a post over at Mailbox Monday that was encouraging readers to share their best finds of the week via their Books That Caught Our Eye posts. I love, love, love that idea so this is my warped version of it.

It's been too long since I got my act together and posted one of these. Sorry about that. My laziness and my fuzzy brain from back pain haven't allowed me to do a lot of blog snooping. As always, please take a moment to visit my lovely enablers if you're in need of more books :) And, really, aren't we all?!

Bad Girls With Perfect Faces by Lynn Weingarten

Greg got me with this line: "Bad Girls With Perfect Faces is so twisted. Deliciously so. I mean really, I've read a ton of thrillers in the last year, and enjoyed many of them, but in some ways this might be the most twisted one I've read."

Here's what it's about:
From the New York Times bestselling author of Suicide Notes from Beautiful Girls comes a stylish thriller about the darkness that lurks inside all of us.

When I looked up, his smile was wide and real. “Ready?” he said.
I faked a smile back. I had gotten so good at faking things.
I thought: You brought this on yourself, Sasha. You will have to pretend forever now.
He squeezed my hand again. He couldn’t begin to imagine what this actually was. He had no idea what I’d done. What any of us had.

When Sasha’s best friend Xavier gets back together with his cheating ex, Ivy, Sasha knows she needs to protect him. So she poses as a guy online to lure Ivy away.

But Sasha’s plan goes sickeningly wrong. And she soon learns to be careful of who you pretend to be because you might be surprised by who you become…

Told in multiple points of view, Bad Girls with Perfect Faces is sexy and twisted with shocks at every turn.



36430983The One by John Marrs

Rachel hooked me good with this line:
"If you're a fan of Black Mirror and the thriller genre, I think you'll enjoy The One"

I love me some Black Mirror!

Here's what it's about:
How far would you go to find The One?

A simple DNA test is all it takes. Just a quick mouth swab and soon you’ll be matched with your perfect partner—the one you’re genetically made for.

That’s the promise made by Match Your DNA. A decade ago, the company announced that they had found the gene that pairs each of us with our soul mate. Since then, millions of people around the world have been matched. But the discovery has its downsides: test results have led to the breakup of countless relationships and upended the traditional ideas of dating, romance and love.

Now five very different people have received the notification that they’ve been “Matched.” They’re each about to meet their one true love. But “happily ever after” isn’t guaranteed for everyone. Because even soul mates have secrets. And some are more shocking than others…

A word-of-mouth hit in the United Kingdom, The One is a fascinating novel that shows how even the simplest discoveries can have complicated consequences.

The Atrocities by Jeremy Shipp

Tammy posted about this on this week's Top Ten Tuesday Post. It doesn't arrive until April but I have to have it! Just look at that creepy cover and tell me you don't want it too.

Here's what it's about:

Jeremy Shipp brings you The Atrocities, a haunting gothic fantasy of a young ghost's education

When Isabella died, her parents were determined to ensure her education wouldn't suffer.

But Isabella's parents had not informed her new governess of Isabella's... condition, and when Ms Valdez arrives at the estate, having forced herself through a surreal nightmare maze of twisted human-like statues, she discovers that there is no girl to tutor.

Or is there...?

Did you find something irresistible during your blog perusals this week? Please share! We all need more books, right?

    1. They sound so evil that I will probably like them. I missed your review and will go seek it out.

    2. Found it! Sometimes too many twists can ruin a book like this. I'll give it a read and see where I stand. If they're evil enough I might be able to forgive anything :)

    1. Thanks, Mary. It sucks and every time I hurt it it seems to take a week longer to heal. I hate to think what life is going to be like if I live to be 80! I feel 90 already!! My poor sister was disabled from back issues in her early 30's so I am pretty terrified.
