Memory Lane Monday #26 -- Mutilate my Heart Recap


This is a new weekly meme that Kristalyn over at The Sarcastic Palmtree and I, Amber at Paradise of Pages, came up with. We have been wanting to re-read some of our favorites but feel overwhelmed by all the other new books coming out that our re-reads get put to the side. That is how we came up with this meme, we decided we don't want to put them aside anymore, so we will be taking turns putting up our reviews on the re-reads we do throughout the month. This does not mean we won't keep up with recent releases as well, it just means we will make more time for those we have read before as well.

__________________________________________________


So here is how this meme will work:

  • Each week the co-hosts will trade off with recapping when it is a re-read or what they have heard so far about the book and the other co-host will put up their review. 
  •  The participants can read anything that they remember reading in the past, or something that they have wanted to read that has been around for a while and just haven't gotten around to reading it yet for whatever reason. 
  • Participants can decide if they want to recap the book before reading it or just put up a review of what they read. 
  • Anyone can join in, just please link back to our blogs as well as add your name to the linky so we can hop around and see what everyone is reading. 
  • Please put our banner on your post as well, so we all look the same! 
  • We ask you kindly to follow BOTH of our blogs. 
  • Most importantly remember to just have fun! :)

__________________________________________________

We will be providing each week a linky that you will be able to also link your posts for us to view. All we ask is for you to put up our banner as well as a link back to BOTH hosts on your post.

Mutilate My Heart
By Emily Godwin


Synopsis: 

Punk rock band Mutilated Arteries has been seventeen-year-old Becca's world (aka obsession) for the last year. When the band schedules a concert in her hometown, she and her best friend Carli are the first ones in line to buy tickets. The night is everything she expects it to be and more, especially after making friends with the new super-cute bassist, Sketch.

Becca's mom warns her not to fall for a rock star because rock stars are always on the road - or they die in a plane crash, like her mom's favorite band did twenty-something years ago. But after the band's tour bus breaks down and they're stuck hanging out in Roizen Hills for a week, it's hard for Becca not to fall for Sketch and his caricature drawings and toxic green eyes.

Becca knows Sketch is leaving as soon as the bus is fixed, and she can't be his fan-turned-girlfriend anyway because of the lead singer's "No Girlfriends" rule. Plus, there's something strange about the guys that Becca can't quite decipher... like how they won't reveal their real names, their always-changing odd appearances, and the guitarist's obsession with blood and zombies. Still, Becca wants nothing more than for Sketch to mutilate her heart...but it just might not be in a way she expects.

My Recap:
This book is something that I don't remember too much from. I still remember a bit, but not as much as I would like.

I remember Becca running into Sketch at the mall. At the time she had no idea he was the new bassist for the band.

I remember a big twist at the end, though I can't say it because I don't want to ruin the whole book, but it definitely took me off guard.

I remember something with them being super scared of a ghost.

I remember one of the members, Corpse I think, is super obsessed with zombies!

I remember the attraction towards him but them not knowing what to do with the no girlfriend rule.

I remember their bus breaking down, which is what keeps them in town so long.

I can't wait to start up this book and get to relive the pages all over again! I have missed this book!!
