Broken Monsters –
The BOLO Books Review

Last year, Lauren Beukes burst onto the playing field of crime fiction with her novel, The Shining Girls. While that work was by no means her debut, it was the first that could be classified (predominantly) as a tale of crime – in that book’s case, the story of a time-traveling serial killer.

Melissa Marr –
The BOLO Books Interview

From the Booking Desk:

I’m going to go a bit fanboy here for a moment and try not to hyperventilate. Today, I am very pleased to welcome Melissa Marr to BOLO Books.  I have loved Melissa’s work since she first released Wicked Lovely some time ago.  I have since followed her journey, as she explores different genres, finding ways to tell the stories that she needs to tell.  I was thrilled to have the opportunity to ask her some questions and I hope that many of my followers will love her answers.

Also, be sure to check out my review of Melissa Marr’s new novel, Made For You, posted on the blog just last week.

August 2014 Ricochet –
BOLO Books Monthly Recap

From the Booking Desk:

Today, I am starting a new feature on the blog.  At the request of several followers, I have decided to implement a monthly recap post, which will list all of the reviews and interviews posted to the blog during the previous month.

Since the term Ricochet means to rebound, bounce or skip off the surface of something, it seems like an appropriate title for these recaps.

So, with that in mind, I hope you enjoy the bullet lists of blog posts for the month of August 2014.
