Waiting on Wednesday: Crazy Beautiful

Waiting on Wednesday = Jill's idea. My pick for 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.

Find more on Lauren's site.

It sounds different. I like different.

I've seen a lot of love for this one. You're right though, it does sound different. And I like how he turns into smoke on the cover

This past week I've been thinking about why hooks and what happened, so I'm so glad to read this!

So. Excited. About this book. Lauren and I are at the same agency, and you can bet I'm angling for an ARC!

It sounds intriguing - the cover's very mysterious too.

This really does sound great (anyone remember the movie POWDER? For some reason the book description is evoking that for me). Anyway, Lauren is fab...I'm sure this is going to be a great one. xo

Hey! For some reason, this embedded comment form makes most people click twice before the comment is processed and published. It's not you - it's just that it's a new Blogger feature with kinks and all that. (But I adore it and don't wanna get rid of it!) I removed Captcha to make the process easier. You don't have to rewrite the comments twice; just click on SUBMIT twice and it should work. If not, email me. Thanks! -Steph
