Hanover House cover - (un)Conventional Bookviews

Hanover House (Hanover Chronicles #0.5) by Brenda Novak

Welcome to Hanover House….
Psychiatrist Evelyn Talbot has dedicated her life to solving the mysteries of the psychopathic mind. Why do psychopaths act as they do? How do they come to be? Why don’t they feel any remorse for the suffering they cause? And are there better ways of spotting and stopping them?
After having been kidnapped, tortured and left for dead when she was just a teenager—by her high school boyfriend—she’s determined to understand how someone she trusted so much could turn on her. So she’s established a revolutionary new medical health center in the remote town of Hilltop, Alaska, where she studies the worst of the worst.
But not everyone in Hilltop is excited to have Hanover House and its many serial killers in the area. Alaskan State Trooper, Sergeant Amarok, is one of them. And yet he can’t help feeling bad about what Evelyn has been through. He’s even attracted to her. Which is partly why he worries.
He knows what could happen if only one little thing goes wrong…

Pilot-for-hire Zoe Stone is happy to call Sunshine, Idaho, her home base. But her quiet life is thrown for a loop when her brother’s friend Parker comes to stay with her for a week. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife special agent is a handsome flirt with a gift for getting under her skin. And the situation only escalates when Parker hires her to fly him around the area while he collects evidence on a suspected smuggler.

Now she has to live and work with the guy. But when they’re in the air, she sees another side of him. He’s driven, focused, and sharp. And while he enjoys giving commentary on her blind dates, she quickly realizes with a shock that it’s Parker who gets her engines going…

Omega cover - (un)Conventional Bookviews

Omega (Omega #1) – Lizzy Ford

In a modern world ruled by territorial Greek gods, the human race has been oppressed, exploited and now, nearly destroyed by the constant infighting of gods.
However, a human girl with the power of a goddess is coming of age. Alessandra is the Oracle of Delphi – the last prophesized – and bears the mark of the double omega. Soon after she turns eighteen, Alessandra is told her destiny: to step between the warring gods and the human race and save her world from certain ruin.
For the gods, her appearance marks the beginning of the end – their end. They and the Triumvirate – leaders of the human elite – who serve them will stop at nothing to preserve their power.
Alessandra emerges from the forest where she spent her life hidden from gods and men and immediately plummets into a race against time, gods, and herself to discover who and what she is in a world where everyone she meets has a hidden agenda, and those pulling the strings remain in the shadows.
Before she can determine exactly what kind of savior her world needs, she must first master her power by completing three trials devised by the Triumvirate to enslave her.
One lone girl stands between warring gods and the people she’s destined to protect, but it’s the battle to understand who she is that she must win first.

Purchased Books:

Boy and The Body covers

Because I need these two for the two weeks when I’ll be substitute teaching (starting on Monday) I got BOY: Tales of Childhood by Roald Dahl and The Body by Stephen King. I’m not so sure why students will be reading a simplified novel by Stephen King, but at least it will be a very quick read for me!

Did you get some exciting-looking books this week? Remember to leave me your link so I can check out your Stacking the Shelves and or Bought, Borrowed and Bagged post, too 🙂 Thanks for stopping by! Have a spectacular Saturday.

  1. I read The Body a long time ago…and I loved the film! I liked a lot of his early work but his books over the last 5-10 years or so have left me cold. I always want to grab his new ones though, just in case he’s written another classic! Hope you enjoy your books!

  2. I gotta say I’m a little envious of a few books in your haul this week, Lexxie. I really need to get back to Ridley’s series since I so enjoyed the first one. 🙂 I hope you had a wonderful weekend and that your first Monday back to school went smoothly. My weekend was spent working on refinishing our deck. Oh, and watching James chase off a bear who took down a birdfeeder and was going after the seeds like a cat does with catnip. 🙂 Exciting times in the mountains! LOL **BIG HUGS**

  3. I got some great books, I agree. And I look forward to Ridley’s because her sense of humor is really good, and her female characters quite strong and strong-willed, too 🙂
    James had to chase off a bear?!? Oh my goodness… that sounds really scary.
    My first day back to school went really well, but I was so tired last night!
