One of the perks of having an extremely long Amazon wishlist (thanks everyone!) is the "items with price drops" filter. I check it every day and usually find something that has been deeply discounted. I'll try to remember to start sharing them and would love it if the rest of you could join in. We can never have enough books, right?
I haven't read any of these books but they have all been highly recommended to me by Booklikes & Goodreads friends whose tastes I trust. So you can blame them if you hate the books ;)
My tastes are eclectic and today's finds include a little something for almost everyone, maybe? We have a little m/m love, a gory horror cult classic & a story about miracles.
FREE! Duncan has a secret fantasy, but is Tyler the right man for the job? Tyler’s new policeman boyfriend, Duncan, is gorgeous. Tall, broad, and über-masculine, he’s the epitome of the dominant top—in appearance at least. When they discuss their sexual fantasies, Duncan confesses to a secret desire that surprises Tyler. Luckily for Duncan, Tyler’s happy to oblige and is determined to give Duncan a night to remember.
.99 Cents. One of the most outrageous, original and insightful books ever written on the subject of alienation and societal decay, Cows is a violent, blood soaked nightmare - a scatological tale of love, self-empowerment and probably the most extreme novel you'll ever read. Hailed around the world as a cult classic, Matthew Stokoe's novel set the bar for gritty urban horror.
Mother's corpse in pieces, dead dog on the roof, girlfriend in a coma, baby nailed to the wall, and a hundred tons of homicidal beef stampeding through the subway system. And Steven thought the slaughterhouse was bad . . .
Billy Coffey has been compared to both Flannery O'Connor and Shirley Jackson. Journey with him to Mattingly, VA, and discover what marks the boundary between a miracle from God and the imagination of a child.
Leah is a child from Away, isolated from her peers because of her stutter. But then she begins painting scenes that are epic in scope, brilliant in detail, and suffused with rich, prophetic imagery. When the event foreshadowed in the first painting dramatically comes true, the town of Mattingly takes notice.
Leah attributes her ability to foretell the future to an invisible friend she calls the Rainbow Man. Some of the townsfolk are enchanted with her. Others fear her. But there is one thing they all agree on—there is no such thing as the Rainbow Man.
Her father, the town psychologist, is falling apart over his inability to heal his daughter . . . or fix his marriage. And the town minister is unraveled by the notion that a mere child with no formal training may be hearing from God more clearly than he does.
While the town bickers over what to do with this strange child, the content of Leah’s paintings grows darker. Still, Leah insists that the Rainbow Man’s heart is pure. But then a dramatic and tragic turn of events leaves the town reeling and places everyone’s lives in danger. Now the people of Mattingly face a single choice:
Will they cling to what they know . . . or embrace the things Leah believes in that cannot be seen?
