Weekend Wishlist - Crazy Beautiful by Lauren Baratz-Logsted

You know what I haven't done in FOREVER?...  A Weekend Wishlist post.

For those of you new to the blog (hello!) Weekend Wishlist is a little post I created where I could feature older titles that have caught my attention.

Here's what's caught my eye this week...


Crazy Beautiful by Lauren Baratz-Logsted

In an explosion of his own making, Lucius blew his arms off. Now he has hooks. He chose hooks because they were cheaper. He chose hooks because he wouldn’t outgrow them so quickly. He chose hooks so that everyone would know he was different, so he would scare even himself.

Then he meets Aurora. The hooks don’t scare her. They don’t keep her away. In fact, they don’t make any difference at all to her.

But to Lucius, they mean everything. They remind him of the beast he is inside. Perhaps Aurora is his Beauty, destined to set his soul free from its suffering.

Or maybe she’s just a girl who needs love just like he does.


Doesn't that sound so interesting?  It's like a twist on Beauty and the Beast but all DARK.

WANT.

I'm going to need to track this one down.

So what about you, dear readers?  Do you have an older title you've got your eye on this weekend?

If so, let me know!  I'm always on the hunt for my next read.

Love ya!
