Back to joining up with the Waiting on Wednesday Posts, and the Can’t
Wait Wednesday posts hosted by Wishful Endings.  This week there are five on my list.

From my ARC list for August 27th:

Sounds like a fun science fiction type of read.

Here is the blurb from Goodreads:

The original Flower in the Attic series was one I used to read over and over, I pretty much have them memorized to be honest.  So I love when we get a look back at what made the family what it was. So this might be good!  I’m also loving how Lifetime is making movies of the original series, now the Heaven series is going on.

Here is the blurb from Goodreads:

Forbidden passions have shaped and haunted the Dollanganger family since their first novel—Flowers in the Attic—debuted
forty years ago. Now discover how twisted the family roots truly are,
and witness the clan’s origins as a result of one wild and complicated
relationship.
In this evocative and thrilling tale from New York Times bestselling
author V.C. Andrews, see Corrine Dixon as a young girl and discover the
fascinating family history of the Dollanganger clan.

Two
generations before Corinne Foxworth locked her children in an attic, her
grandmother, a gorgeous young girl named Corrine Dixon, is swept away
by the charms of rich, sophisticated, and handsome Garland Foxworth.
After discovering that she’s pregnant, Garland does what appears to be
the honorable thing and marries her in a huge ceremony on the luxurious
Foxworth Hall grounds. Both families fervently overlook the pregnancy,
happy for a suitable resolution.

Now the mistress of a
labyrinthine estate, Corrine discovers that nothing is what is seems.
Garland is not the man once captivated by her charms, and she’s
increasingly troubled by his infatuation with memories of his departed
mother.

Can Corrine survive this strange new life? Or is her fate already sealed?

Explore the origins of the legendary Dollanganger family in this page-turning, gripping gothic thriller.

Beautiful cover, sounds like a very deep story as well.

Here is the blurb from Goodreads:

The day after the
funeral all our mourning clothes hung out on the line like sleeping
bats. ‘This will be really embarrassing,’ I kept saying to my family,
‘when she shows up at the door in a week or two.’

When
Deena’s wild and mysterious sister Mandy disappears – presumed dead –
her family are heartbroken. But Mandy has always been troubled. It’s
just another bad thing to happen to Deena’s family. Only Deena refuses
to believe it’s true.

And then the letters start arriving.
Letters from Mandy, claiming that their family’s blighted history is not
just bad luck or bad decisions – but a curse, handed down through the
generations. Mandy has gone in search of the curse’s roots, and now
Deena must find her. What they find will heal their family’s rotten past
– or rip it apart forever.

Of course I love pretty much ever book I’ve read by Helena Hunting, and I have an e-galley of this one to read soon, will be doing a review/blog tour for this one.

Here is the blurb from Goodreads:

 

HE WANTS TO LOSE CONTROL.
Between
his parents’ messed up marriage and his narcissistic younger brother,
Lincoln Moorehead has spent the majority of his life avoiding his
family. After the death of his father, Lincoln finds himself in the
middle of the drama. To top it all off, he’s been named CEO of Moorehead
Media, much to his brother’s chagrin. But Lincoln’s bad attitude
softens when he meets the no-nonsense, gorgeous woman who has been given
the task of transforming him from the gruff, wilderness guy to a suave
businessman

SHE’S TRYING TO HOLD IT TOGETHER.
Wren Sterling
has been working double time to keep the indiscretions at Moorehead
Media at bay, so when she’s presented with a new contract, with new
responsibilities and additional incentives, she agrees. Working with the
reclusive oldest son of a ridiculously entitled family is worth the
hassle if it means she’s that much closer to pursuing her own dreams.
What Wren doesn’t expect is to find herself attracted to him, or for it
to be mutual. And she certainly doesn’t expect to fall for Lincoln. But
when a shocking new Moorehead scandal comes to light, she’s forced to
choose between her own family and the broody, cynical CEO.

Sounds like a fun romance!  

Here is the blurb from Goodreads:

American Angie Donovan
has never wanted much. When you grow up getting bounced from foster home
to foster home, you learn not to become attached to anything, anyone,
or any place. But it only took her two days to fall in love with
Australia. With her visa clock ticking, surely she can fall in love with
an Australian—and get hitched—in two months. Especially if he’s as hot
and funny as her next-door neighbor…

Jace Walters has never
wanted much—except a bathroom he didn’t have to share. The last cookie
all to himself. And solitude. But when you grow up in a family of seven,
you can kiss those things goodbye. He’s finally living alone and
working on his syndicated comic strip in privacy. Sure, his American
neighbor is distractingly sexy and annoyingly nosy, but she’ll be gone
in a few months…

Except now she’s determined to find her
perfect match by checking out every eligible male in the town, and her
choices are even more distracting. So why does it suddenly feel like
he—and his obnoxious tight-knit family, and even these two wayward
dogs—could be exactly what she needs?

    I used to read Flowers in the Attic in middle school – it was so scandalous back then. I would like to eventually read them again to see how they measure up now. I like the book that gives some backstory. May need to check it out.

  2. Samantha@WLABB

    The Aussie Next Door was really good. I enjoyed it a lot, and if she is focusing on the hero's family in future books, I am there. All the Bad Apples was pretty deep. It's the author raging against the atrocities the Catholic Church has committed in Ireland. Not a warm and fuzzy read, but I enjoyed it. I like Fowley-Doyle books.

  3. Literary Feline

    Mind Games sounds freaky! Like a fun book, but can you imagine? How scary for the characters. I like the sound of The Aussie Next Door too. I will definitely try to get my hands on that one when it comes out. I hope you enjoy all of these if you read them! Have a great week!

  4. Lynn

    Wow, Mind Games sounds incredible! I'm going to check it out right away!
    I hope you'll enjoy all of these!

    Have a wonderful week!

    I am SO excited for All the Bad Apples and I cannot wait to read it! I have heard good things about Mind Games as well but I don't really know much about it yet. I am waiting for reviews to come through 🙂
