BOOK MAIL: Sinless by Sarah Tarkoff @harpervoyagerus @sarahtarkoff

by Sarah Tarkoff
Harper Voyager
Releasing 1/9/18

I've been very lax about posting all my book mail... sometimes life gets in the way but with the beginning of a new month and new season (Fall, YAY!), it's time to get motivated so let's start with my very first piece of Book Mail I received in September!

About the Book:

This dark, cinematic, dystopian novel - the first in the "Eye of the Beholder" series - is set in a near future society in which "right" and "wrong" are manifested by beauty and ugliness.

In Grace Luther's world, morality is physically enforced.  Those who are "good" are blessed with beauty, while those who are not suffer horrifying consequences - disfigurement, or even death.  When the cleric's daughter stumbles onto information that proves her world is more complicated than it seems, she finds herself at the center of an epic battle where good and evil are not so easily distinguished.  Despite all her efforts to live a normal teenage life, Grace is faced with a series of decisions that will risk the lives of everyone she loves.

About the Author:

Sarah Tarkoff currently writes for the CW series Arrow.  Other TV writing credits include ABC's Mistresses. Lifetime's Witches of East End and the animated series Vixen and The Ray.  She also worked as a script coordinator on Gossip Girl and Jane the Virgin.  She graduated from USC with a degree in screenwriting (hence all the screenwriting), and lives in Los Angeles.  SINLESS is her debut novel.

I love a good dystopian novel done right and this one definitely looks promising!  Goes into that whole Shallow Hal lesson of how sometimes the inside doesn't match the outside.  Although society gives us a "standard" (usually an unrealistic one) of what beauty should be, humans are unique and have our own set of what we are or are not attracted to.  Don't judge lest thy be judged and all that.
