Broken Monsters by Lauren Beukes

September 16, 2014 from Mulholland Books

A criminal mastermind creates violent tableaus in abandoned Detroit warehouses in Lauren Beukes’s new genre-bending novel of suspense.
Detective Gabriella Versado has seen a lot of bodies. But this one is unique even by Detroit’s standards: half boy, half deer, somehow fused together. As stranger and more disturbing bodies are discovered, how can the city hold on to a reality that is already tearing at its seams?
If you’re Detective Versado’s geeky teenage daughter, Layla, you commence a dangerous flirtation with a potential predator online. If you’re desperate freelance journalist Jonno, you do whatever it takes to get the exclusive on a horrific story. If you’re Thomas Keen, known on the street as TK, you’ll do what you can to keep your homeless family safe–and find the monster who is possessed by the dream of violently remaking the world.

I actually have this one sitting on my desk right now!  I started reading it last night and can I just say that it is so good?  A bit creepy and very interesting and different.

      Thanks for correcting me Zoe! I forgot about that one because when I first started her work the craze was all about Delirium! I’ve made the change!

    I am SO excited to read Amy Poehler’s book! She’s hilarious and beautiful!

      Amy Poehler is absolutely hysterical. I usually read one or two biographies/memoirs each publishing season and this is certainly on my list for when it comes out!

      Thanks Jenn! I decided to try something different. I think I will do them like this from now on. Much easier to scroll through and focus on one book at a time! Broken Monsters and Of Bone and Thunder are both really good. You should add them to your TBR list!

    Such a cool way to scroll through reviews!!! Now I have a long list to read on the plane ride to Aus.

      Thanks Julie! Trying something new and it seems to have worked out so I think I’ll stick with it. You do now have a lot of books to read on the plane ride. You know I’m always good for a book recommendation!

    OK, so the Jewel? Skip it. It’s pretty bad, the writing is worse than what you had in Selection and the story is really just a mash up of stuff that’s all have been done before. I was stupid enough to sign up for the tour for this, but if I didn’t, I would’ve dnfed it after 50 pages.

    Yes to Retribution – can’t wait!!! Also Belzhar and Little White Lies look great :) thanks for putting this together :)
