I really love receiving a few new books each month! When it’s summer and you just want to burn through novels as you burn your skin on the beach, you never want that stack of books to end. BookCase.Club is the perfect way to make sure your supply never run low. Let’s take a look at the books we received this month.
Not if I See You First – Eric Lindstrom
Parker Grant doesn’t need 20/20 vision to see right through you. That’s why she created the Rules: Don’t treat her any differently just because she’s blind, and never take advantage. There will be no second chances. Just ask Scott Kilpatrick, the boy who broke her heart. When Scott reappears in her life after being gone for years, Parker knows there’s only one way to react – Shun him so hard it hurts. She has enough on her mind already, like trying out for the track team (that’s right, her eyes don’t work but her legs do), doling out tough-love advice to her painfully naive classmates, and giving herself gold stars for every day she hasn’t cried since her dad’s death three months ago. But avoiding her past quickly proves impossible, and the more Parker learns about what really happened – both with Scott, and her dad – the more she starts to question if things are always as they seem. Maybe, just maybe, some Rules are meant to be broken.
Lies I told – Michelle Zink
Grace has been adopted into a family of thieves who con affluent people out of money, jewelry, art, and anything else of value. The rules are simple: find a mark, run the con, and get out. No attachments. No looking back. There are sacrifices, but in return Grace gets something she’s always wanted – a family.
Now the Fontaines have arrived in Play Hermosa, an isolated peninsula near Los Angeles where the wealthy live and play. It’s their biggest heist yet – and their most difficult. But right from the beginning, things start to go wrong. As the pressure mounts and the foundations of her makeshift family start to crack, Grace finds herself breaking more and more of the rules, including the most important one of all: never fall for your mark.
Grace has spent a lifetime convincing others to believe her lies, but what if the biggest lies are the ones she’s told herself?
BookCase.Club July 2017 – Final Thoughts
I really like the sound of both these books, but I have to admit, Lies I Told hooked me right in! I can’t wait to pick that one up. The fact that BookCase.Club allows you to choose your theme and age demographic for the subscription is a huge bonus to me! I would have to say that I’m way more in to teen fiction than adult fiction. If I’m going to read I want something simple yet complicated in its story telling. Teen fiction always does a great job of this. I can’t wait to dive into these books and get lost in the story! Another great month for BookCase.Club as far as I’m concerned.
