Received for Review

Made for You by Melissa Marr (Edelweiss)
Suspicion by Alexandra Monir (Netgalley by invitation)

I'm not sure how and I'm not sure why, but until this week Made for You by Melissa Marr had flown completely under my radar. I'm very glad I was pitched it for review, then, because I'd hate to have missed out on this "twisted southern gothic tale of obsession, romance, and murder." It sounds like a very "me" read indeed! Anyone read this one already?

 I can't wait to get stuck into Suspicion by Alexandra Monir. This one has been at the top of my wish list ever since I first heard about it months back. Based on Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca, that cover is amazing, and it promises an amazing mystery too.

How We Fall by Kate Brauning
Unstoppable by Liz Bankes
My Second Life by Faye Bird


I haven't bought any books in the last fortnight! I've had to cut back since my TBR pile is getting a little bit out of control! I've also cut back on the Netgalley/Edelweiss requests, but I couldn't resist How We Fall by Kate Brauning - I really like the sound of that one!

Speaking of that out of control TBR pile, I haven't been doing very much reading at all! Wimbledon and the World Cup have been eating into my reading time! I'm hoping to get stuck into Lobsters by Tom Ellen and Lucy Ivison this weekend. I started reading it last week and it is very, very funny so far!

In other news, I've been watching The Leftovers which is a new HBO show based on Tom Perrotta's novel of the same name. Now, I haven't read the book, and I'm not really quite sure what's going on in the show (it's pretty weird!) but I'm kinda hooked all the same. I pretty much love strange shows of this type (Yes, I'm a big Twin Peaks fan too!)

Have you seen the show? What do you think of it so far?

That's it for this week!

Currently reading:  Lobsters by Tom Ellen and Lucy Ivison and Abroad by Katie Crouch.


  1. Made For You and Suspicion have beautiful covers :D And I can understand on cutting back your TBR pile. Mine's a big one, too. Instead of reading, I've been watching Korean dramas lately :D

  2. Made for You has a really interesting cover and I'm totally checking out My Second Life on goodreads now. And the colours in How We Fall? Beautiful. XD

    My Stack!

  3. Suspicion has a beautiful cover indeed. You are so lucky to get invited to read that title. I hope you love everything you got this week.

  5. Suspicion looks amazing! I'm really excited for that one to release. I just requested How We Fall last night because it keeps catching my eye. Enjoy your new books!

    I didn't know that Melissa Marr had a contemporary out. I'm interested to see what you think of it. I liked Wicked Lovely quite a bit. I hope you love all your books :)

    Made For You has escaped my attention until now so I'm glad you brought it to my attention. Suspicion and How We Fall have really pretty covers :)

    Made for You and Suspicion have such beautiful covers. Loved i.

  9. I hadn't heard of Made For You or Suspicion before today but they're both on my wishlist now! I can't wait to read them. I hope you enjoy all your books!

  10. My reading has been interrupted by too much TV lately too! Thanks for visiting! :)

  11. I'm so glad I spotted How We Fall on Edelweiss. I like the sound of it and I probably would have missed it otherwise. Made for You sounds good!

  12. Thanks, Grace. I can't wait to read Suspicion!

  13. I hope How We Fall is good - I have high hopes after reading the blurb!

  14. I haven't read Wicked Lovely (I've had a copy of that book for YEA!) but I'm looking forward to this one. It seems to be getting pretty good reviews!

  15. Yes, Made for You has been flying under the radar just a little bit!

  16. Thanks! Hope you enjoy those two if/when you get to reading them! :)

  17. It looks like you received some great books for review this week. I love both of the covers of the first two books. (I'm not a fan of bugs, and usually don't like them on covers, but I think that Made For You pulls it off well). Happy Reading! :]

    Ahhh, Made For You! SO can't wait to read it, I couldn't get into her Wicked Lovely series since I'm not that into reading about Fae, but this definitely sounds more like my type of book, too. :) Happy reading!

    Made For You just came on my radar this week as well…definitely excited about that one. I am dying to read Suspicion. I really liked Monir's first book. I hear you about being behind with reading….I am very behind this month…just too much going on! Enjoy all of your books!
