Books That Caught My Eye – 13th July 2016

This is a weekly ‘meme’ that is posted every Wednesday by @Mailbox Monday.

The goal and idea, I think, of this meme, is to share two books that have caught your eye over the last week, that have really gotten you excited about them, for some reason or other. (This is what I think, as this is the first time I’ve participated in this, so I’m sorry y if I’m doing this wrong.)

Now, the books you choose, could be a book that you’ve received yourself, bought, have seen on somebodies blog or booktube, or even seen advertised on Amazon or displayed in an actual bookshop! Shock, horror :O lol.

So here are the two books that have caught my eye this week:

AliceAlice (Chronicles of Alice Book 1) – Christina Henry

A mind-bending new novel inspired by the twisted and wondrous works of Lewis Carroll…

In a warren of crumbling buildings and desperate people called the Old City, there stands a hospital with cinderblock walls which echo the screams of the poor souls inside.

In the hospital, there is a woman. Her hair, once blond, hangs in tangles down her back. She doesn’t remember why she’s in such a terrible place. Just a tea party long ago, and long ears, and blood…

Then, one night, a fire at the hospital gives the woman a chance to escape, tumbling out of the hole that imprisoned her, leaving her free to uncover the truth about what happened to her all those years ago.

Only something else has escaped with her. Something dark. Something powerful.

And to find the truth, she will have to track this beast to the very heart of the Old City, where the rabbit waits for his Alice.”

The Ice Twins

The Ice Twins – S.K. Tremayne

“A year after one of their identical twin daughters, Lydia, dies in an accident, Angus and Sarah Moorcraft move to the tiny Scottish island Angus inherited from his grandmother, hoping to put together the pieces of their shattered lives.

But when their surviving daughter, Kirstie, claims they have mistaken her identity—that she, in fact, is Lydia—their world comes crashing down once again.

As winter encroaches, Angus is forced to travel away from the island for work, Sarah is feeling isolated, and Kirstie (or is it Lydia?) is growing more disturbed. When a violent storm leaves Sarah and her daughter stranded, Sarah finds herself tortured by the past—what really happened on that fateful day one of her daughters died?”

What books have caught your eyes this week? Have you read any or both of the two I’ve mentioned above, and if so, what are your thought? As always, comment below 😀
