Got My Eye On (3)


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.

Here are the books I've added to my wishlist with credit to my enablers :)

Bob @ Beauty In Ruins 

Spidermilk by [Hartmann, Konrad]Spidermilk by Konrad Hartmann

Eddie Stover, private eye, lives in a future where artificial humans called LifeMates serve consumers as a purchasable commodity. When Stover takes a wandering daughter case, the search for the missing woman plunges him into a world of hijacked LifeMates, psychedelic milk, and a bizarre spider-worshiping cult. As the thrall of his old addictions and the enticements of the woman he promised to protect threaten to consume him, Stover is faced with the realization that he cannot escape the choice love forces him to make. (M/F, F/F)

 I don't know where Bob finds these weird ass titles but I'm just thankful he does!

When A Marquess Loves A Woman by Vivienne Lorret

As a young, penniless gentleman, Maxwell Harwick knew he had little to offer Juliet White—the most beautiful debutante of the season—except his love, and one thoroughly scandalous kiss. But when they were discovered in a compromising position, a nearly ruined Juliet fled into the arms of a rich, older lord... taking Max’s heart with her.

Now a widow, Lady Juliet Granworth intends to use the fortune she inherited from her odious husband to build a new life in London. Five years have passed, but she’s never forgotten Max… or his soul-searing kiss. Yet it’s clear the newly-minted Marquess of Thayne has not forgiven her—after all, the infuriating man can barely stand the sight of her. But Juliet has endured far too much to give up without a fight and if it’s a battle of wills he wants, it’s a battle he’ll get.

He hates her for breaking his heart. She detests him for destroying her future. But beneath all the loathing simmers an intoxicating passion that neither can ignore… and the harder they resist, the harder they will inevitably fall.

My Sister Rosa by Justine Larbalestier

What if the most terrifying person you know is your ten-year-old sister?

Seventeen-year-old Aussie Che Taylor loves his younger sister, Rosa. But he’s also certain that she’s a diagnosable psychopath—clinically, threateningly, dangerously. Recently Rosa has been making trouble, hurting things. Che is the only one who knows; he’s the only one his sister trusts. Rosa is smart, talented, pretty, and very good at hiding what she is and the violence she’s capable of. 

Their parents, whose business takes the family from place to place, brush off the warning signs as Rosa’s “acting out.” Now that they have moved again—from Bangkok to New York City—their new hometown provides far too many opportunities for Rosa to play her increasingly complex and disturbing games. Alone, Che must balance his desire to protect Rosa from the world with the desperate need to protect the world from her.



29736099House of Furies by Madeleine Roux

Complete with photo illustrations and eerie black-and-white art, this all-new gothic horror series from the New York Times bestselling author of Asylum tells the story of teenager Louisa Ditton, who finds employment as a maid at a boarding house in Northern England—only to discover that the owner is executing his own brand of dark justice on the guests.

After escaping a harsh school where punishment was the lesson of the day, Louisa Ditton is thrilled to find employment as a maid at a boarding house. But soon after her arrival at Coldthistle House, Louisa begins to realize that the house’s mysterious owner, Mr. Morningside, is providing much more than lodging for his guests. Far from a place of rest, the house is a place of judgment, and Mr. Morningside and his staff are meant to execute their own justice on those who are past being saved.

Louisa begins to fear for a young man named Lee who is not like the other guests. He is charismatic and kind, and Louisa knows that it may be up to her to save him from an untimely judgment. But in this house of distortions and lies, how can Louisa be sure whom to trust?

  2. I agree with you...nobody finds titles like Bob does which is why I enjoy visiting his blog! Pity I have a spider phobia as that cover freaks me out! I actually like your idea of highlighting great posts you find on other sites. Now that I've organised myself better I have more time to lurk on others blogs and look for gems!

    1. Thanks chucklesthescot. I find it easiest if I have the draft post open while looking at blogs. That way I can easily edit my post before I forget which books I have to have.

  3. Spidermilk was a ton of twisted fun. I did a book tour with the publisher a few months back, and they've since given me cart-blanche to plunder their shelves. There will definitely be some more weirdness coming up. :)

    1. Nice, I haven't signed on for any tours because I am way too disorganized right now but that's pretty cool that they've opened up their shelves to you! I can't wait to see what else you end up reviewing.
