My Book Haul 10/1/16

All Our Wrong Todays, Her Every Fear, The Wrong Dead Guy, Killing Kate, The Eye of the Beholder, We Were On A Break, and Tell Me Everything You Don't Remember
In need of a new way to showcase titles, I decided that My Book Haul seems like a good fit. I like giving books a little special attention as sometimes it can be awhile before I'm able to review them. Sad to say, but some get put on the shelf and gather a little dust before I'm able to give them the love they deserve. I've included links to Goodreads if you want more information.

For Review:

This is one of the books that caught my eye from the Fall/Winter 2016 Buzz Books sampler. Love the sound of this one!

All Our Wrong Todays by Elan Mastai
All Our Wrong Todays by Elan Mastai

All Our Wrong Todays is a story of friendship and family, of unexpected journeys and alternate paths, and of love in its multitude of forms. Filled with humor and heart, and saturated with insight and intelligence and a mind-bending talent for invention, this novel signals the arrival of a major talent.

I was lucky enough to be invited to the HarperCollins Winter 2017 Blogger Preview Event last week and these are the titles that caught my eye. Decided to request them as ebooks since I've more or less run out of room on my bookshelves.

Her Every Fear by Peter Swanson
Her Every Fear by Peter Swanson

The author of the wildly popular The Kind Worth Killing returns with an electrifying and downright Hitchcockian psychological thriller-as tantalizing as the cinema classics Rear Window and Wait Until Dark-involving a young woman caught in a vise of voyeurism, betrayal, manipulation, and murder.

Wrong Dead Guy by Richard Kadrey
Wrong Dead Guy by Richard Kadrey

In this fast paced sequel to The Everything Box - the second entry in New York Times bestselling author Richard Kadrey’s comedic supernatural series - chaos ensues when Coop and the team at DOPS steal a not-quite-dead and very lovesick ancient Egyptian mummy wielding some terrifying magic.

Killing Kate by Alex Lake
Killing Kate by Alex Lake

A serial killer is stalking your home town.

He has a type: all his victims look the same.

Eye of the Beholder by Sarah Tarkoff
Eye of the Beholder by Sarah Tarkoff

With shades of Scott Westerfeld’s Uglies and Ally Condie’s Matched, this dark, cinematic dystopian novel - the first in the thrilling Eye of the Beholder series - is set in a near future society in which “right” and “wrong” are manifested by beauty and ugliness

We Were On A Break by Lindsey Kelk
We Were On A Break by Lindsey Kelk

Is it a break? Or is it a blip?

LIV and ADAM are supposed to be getting engaged.
Until ADAM accidently suggests they take a break.
And LIV starts thinking …
