Shelf Control: Compulsion

This is a feature from Bookshelf Fantasies

In this feature, you're supposed to discuss a book that you want to read that you already own.

 Shelves final

My pick this week is Compulsion by Martina Boone


Three plantations. Two wishes. One ancient curse.

All her life, Barrie Watson has been a virtual prisoner in the house where she lives with her shut-in mother. When her mother dies, Barrie promises to put some mileage on her stiletto heels. But she finds a new kind of prison at her aunt’s South Carolina plantation instead—a prison guarded by an ancient spirit who long ago cursed one of the three founding families of Watson Island and gave the others magical gifts that became compulsions.

Stuck with the ghosts of a generations-old feud and hunted by forces she cannot see, Barrie must find a way to break free of the family legacy. With the help of sun-kissed Eight Beaufort, who knows what Barrie wants before she knows herself, the last Watson heir starts to unravel her family's twisted secrets. What she finds is dangerous: a love she never expected, a river that turns to fire at midnight, a gorgeous cousin who isn't what she seems, and very real enemies who want both Eight and Barrie dead.

How I got it:

I got it for $1.50 at the dollar store!

When I got it:
I got it a few weeks ago at the same time I bought Bleed Like Me.

Why I want to read it:

Curses, spirits and magic, of course.

It's the start of the school year again, which means I'll be busy with classes, homework, etc. I'm going to try to post at least once a week, hopefully more often, but I can't guarantee that my posts will be very consistent or regular at this time. I'm going to try to read whenever I can, but there's a chance that I won't be posting reviews as often as I did this summer. I thought I'd let everyone know so that you'll know what's going on if I only post features for the next little while or if I miss a post or skip a week. Thanks for understanding! As always, happy reading.
