Book Summary:

Why is everyone talking about the ending of Sarah Pinborough’s Behind Her Eyes?

Louise is a single mom, a secretary, stuck in a modern-day rut. On a rare night out, she meets a man in a bar and sparks fly. Though he leaves after they kiss, she’s thrilled she finally connected with someone.

When Louise arrives at work on Monday, she meets her new boss, David. The man from the bar. The very married man from the bar…who says the kiss was a terrible mistake, but who still can’t keep his eyes off Louise.

And then Louise bumps into Adele, who’s new to town and in need of a friend. But she also just happens to be married to David. And if you think you know where this story is going, think again, because Behind Her Eyes is like no other book you’ve read before.

David and Adele look like the picture-perfect husband and wife. But then why is David so controlling? And why is Adele so scared of him?

As Louise is drawn into David and Adele’s orbit, she uncovers more puzzling questions than answers. The only thing that is crystal clear is that something in this marriage is very, very wrong. But Louise can’t guess how wrong―and how far a person might go to protect their marriage’s secrets.

In Behind Her Eyes, Sarah Pinborough has written a novel that takes the modern day love triangle and not only turns it on its head, but completely reinvents it in a way that will leave readers reeling.

What do you think of the spoiler book for February? I’m excited for this one! (It is getting good reviews, too!)

  1. How does this work? Do they send a new book each month, or do you pick from different books? Are they new books? Are there any scary one? I like scary ones, thriller, comedy type books, lots of different ones. Thank you

    • Sherrie if you like scary look at an older selection they have (which you can add to your box for $9.99). It’s called All Things Cease to Appear

  2. I have really enjoyed the selections and as an avid YA reader I think y’all could use a change of pace every now and again. I’ve bought books of all different genres from this subscription and love them dearly. I also use this sub as a way to gauge the best/most to-be-talked-about/indie books to come and recommend them at the bookstore I work at because I know they’re well vetted. Now if only Liberty Hardy would come out of hiding; that woman knew what to pick! And if you skipped out on The Sun is Also A Star you have missed out on life.

  3. Honestly I feel like BOTM picks too many thrillers. Sometimes more than one a month. If I wanted a thriller subscription I would pick a different one. I miss when there was a thriller every now and then but other genres were more evenly represented. It feels like if you’re not interested in short stories, thrillers, or non-fiction the past few months it just hasn’t been for you. I miss when I knew that hotly anticipated literary fiction was going to be showing up on their page. I use to wait to buy all the books on my list because I was sure BOTM would pick one of them. Lately it seems like they are just obsessed with the thrillers. A lot of really great books have been passed over lately for random forgettable interchangeable mysteries. I hope this turns around soon as they are a really great service that I would like to stay subscribed to for many years, and I have had several friends decide not to stay subscribed for the very reasons I mentioned above. Not that this book doesn’t sound interesting, if you aren’t tired of the family secrets thriller genre already.

    • I agree, actually. Thrillers, for the most part, bore me. I did get The Trespasser and really liked it, but I rarely like thrillers, I’ve realized. I picked The Couple Next Door as an extra one month and it was disappointing – you could honestly see the resolution coming halfway through.

      I skipped last month because I don’t particularly care for thrillers or short stories and I’m kind of YA’d out (and I’d had an ARC of the one of the books) and I actually didn’t really love my December selection either. I’m trying to keep in mind that some people are probably super bored when there’s tons of lit fic or whatever and they’re really loving the thrillers. It’s a good thing, in general for BOTM to have different genres often. It just makes it a month where I personally will just probably end up skipping.

      • In a couple months a customer service rep said they were getting some good nonfic picks in and more novels less thrillers. I almost cancelled but decided to ask if the thriller or YA trend was going to let up soon.

    • I love thrillers! But I do agree with the No YA books please.

  4. Ohhh yes! Can’t wait to get my hands on this one. I skipped the last two months, but this is perfect for me. BOTM is the only sub box I kept after starting my buying ban at the first of the year.

  5. That looks really good! I can’t wait to see what the twist is (shades of Girl on the Train?)

  6. This isn’t necessarily my type of book (the romance/ girl meets guy aspect) but I like a good mystery. Can’t wait to see the rest of the options! I’ve been skipping a lot the last few months, and haven’t had a month where I was tempted to get a couple add-ons in a while…

    • We’re sorry to hear that, and we think that you’ll really enjoy our February selections! We’re always welcome to member feedback. Please email us at [email protected] if you have any suggestions. Thanks, and happy reading!

  7. Just read this (got an arc fromNetgalley) really enjoyed it!

  8. Yes please! After skipping this months it’s nice to see something interesting. Love me a psychological thriller any day 🙂
