September Book Haul!

Hey guys! Today I am bringing you my September book haul! I acquired a lot of books this month but I only bought two of them and was sent the others! They are all screaming Halloween at me and now I’m really excited for October! Here’s what books I got this month:

Strange Ink by Gary Kemble: This is definitely the most intriguing book I’ve gotten this month. Just looking at the cover gives me chills! It’s about a journalist who wakes up one morning and has a strange symbol tattooed on his neck and soon more appear that are accompanied by horrific nightmares. As he digs deeper he gets caught in a web of corruption and violence tangled with his own past. One way or another, he has to right the wrongs. Big thanks to Titan Books for sending me a finished copy!

In Her Bones by Kate Moretti: This definitely sounds interesting and I love the angle the author has taken, I thought it was quite refreshing. The story follows the daughter of Lilith Wade, a serial killer who was arrested for murdering six women. After a death row conviction and media frenzy, her daughter Edie is just trying to survive out of the spotlight but she has an obsession with the families of Lilith’s victims. Then one man is found murdered and she becomes the prime suspect. Edie remembers nothing of the night of the murder, and must get to the truth before the police-or the real killer-find her. I’ve read plenty of stories about serial killers but none from the actual daughter or son of the killer, so I thought this sounded really interesting! Thanks Titan Books for sending me a finished copy!
