Weekend Book Give-Away: Monstrous Beauty

Looking for something both magical and spooky to read?  Maybe you would like Monstrous Beauty by Elizabeth Fama:

Fierce, seductive mermaid Syrenka falls in love with Ezra, a young naturalist. When she abandons her life underwater for a chance at happiness on land, she is unaware that this decision comes with horrific and deadly consequences. Almost one hundred forty years later, seventeen-year-old Hester meets a mysterious stranger named Ezra and feels overwhelmingly, inexplicably drawn to him. For generations, love has resulted in death for the women in her family. Is it an undiagnosed genetic defect . . . or a curse? With Ezra’s help, Hester investigates her family’s strange, sad history. The answers she seeks are waiting in the graveyard, the crypt, and at the bottom of the ocean—but powerful forces will do anything to keep her from uncovering her connection to Syrenka and to the tragedy of so long ago.

This may not seem like much to another person, but I'd be willing to give up sitting on the porch watching the rain with a cup of hot chocolate in my lap if it was for someone I loved. Believe me, that's quite a lot- that's one of my favorite things in the entire world.

I would give up my gymnastics if I really thought that was the person I loved. My gymnastics is so important to me and the person I loved would have to be seriously perfect for me. I love my gymnastics so much and it would be a huge sacrifice.

I wouldn't give up anything, If i have to give up something I love, then I don't want love.
