Although I keep on telling myself not to buy any books, I always end up with some book mail on its way. Yesterday the last two books I ordered arrived and now I’m even more frightened of my TBR than I already was. Keep on reading to find out more about the latest additions to my pile!
Darkly Dreaming Dexter by Jeff Lindsay
Dexter Morgan appears to be the perfect gentleman. He leads a normal, quiet life working as a forensic officer for the Miami Police. He has a nice, shy girlfriend and is liked by her young children. But Dexter has a secret hobby. He’s an accomplished serial killer.
So far he’s killed dozens of people and has never been caught, because he knows exactly how to dispose of the evidence. And there are those who would rather he wasn’t caught at all, because Dexter is a serial killer with a difference. He only kills the city’s bad guys.
Then Dexter’s well-organised life is thrown into chaos. Another serial killer is invading his territory – and he wants Dexter to come out and play…
After finishing the series I immediately wanted to dive into the books. I LOVED the series. It’s the perfect concept and I loved Michael C. Hall as Dexter (I might even have had the tiniest *biggest* crush on him, shhhh). Guess I actually do have a thing for the bad guys huh? Since the book is only 275 pages long I’m actually considering reading it really soon!
Sleeping Beauties by Stephen King and Owen King
In this spectacular father-son collaboration, Stephen King and Owen King tell the highest of high-stakes stories: what might happen if women disappeared from the world of men?
In a future so real and near it might be now, something happens when women go to sleep; they become shrouded in a cocoon-like gauze. If they are awakened, if the gauze wrapping their bodies is disturbed or violated, the women become feral and spectacularly violent; and while they sleep they go to another place. The men of our world are abandoned, left to their increasingly primal devices. One woman, however, the mysterious Evie, is immune to the blessing or curse of the sleeping disease. Is Evie a medical anomaly to be studied, or is she a demon who must be slain? Set in a small Appalachian town whose primary employer is a women’s prison, Sleeping Beauties is wildly provocative and gloriously absorbing.
MY COPY FINALLY ARRIVED! I really don’t know why, but I only ordered a copy of the newest Kingnovel, on September 24th *facepalm*. So yesterday, after drooling over all the photo’s on instagram, my own copy finally arrived. I ordered the cheapest copy, a paperback, because that’s just the way I am. I didn’t know what the cover would look like, because there wasn’t an image on Book Depository yet, but I was NOT let down. Man, this cover is definitely one of the most gorgeous covers I have ever seen! It’s so very detailed and I love the little lights and the colour! I can’t wait to dive into this dystopian story!!
