Asylum by: Lily White Blog Tour

Words are funny things.

Their meaning, the pictures they paint in the minds of those that hear them: they’re not always the same and to me at least, that makes them meaningless.

Take for instance the phrase ‘black widow’. Those words conjure the image of a spider, an eight-legged creature with the red imprint of an hourglass on its abdomen.

However, instead of speaking of an arachnid, of the resident of a spindly and dew-laden web, the people who whisper those words are talking about something much different.

They’re talking about me.

From what I’m told, I’m called the Black Widow because no man I’ve ever loved has survived.

Yet, I have no memory of any of it.

My new home leads me to the definition of another vague and meaningless word.

It’s a place where I’m supposed to seek refuge.

A place of retreat and security.

It’s a place where I’m supposed to be kept safe because I’m sick.

But the definition for this place is wrong and the word becomes meaningless when you’re tucked away and made silent by drugs and pretty white jackets.

My name is Alexandra Sutton and this is the story of what happened when I was imprisoned inside an Asylum.

I received this copy for her blog tour and this is the first book I have read by Lily White. OMG wow I am kicking myself for not reading this book sooner. Also I am a FAN for life. This book literally had me on the edge of my seat. It had so many twist and turns and WTF moments. I was so mad that I couldn’t read the book faster. This book was well written and the storyline was dark, raw and amazing. I normally don’t read dark books like this.
Alex is known as the “black widow”, she is accused of killing her boyfriends. But she has now memory of anything. With the help of Doctor Jeremy, he will help her remember. I thought the character development was done great. I don’t want to give any of the story away, but I will tell you this it really messes with your mind. You too will be like WTF just happen. Great job Lily, and I LOVE YOU!!!! Lol. You are a talented and brilliant author and I can’t wait to read more of your work! One of my top 3 books EVER!!!

Lily White is a dark writer who likes to dabble on the taboo side of eroticism. Most of the time she can be found wandering around aimlessly while her mind is stuck in some twisted power play between two characters in her head. You may recognize her in public by the confused expression, random mumbling, and occasional giggle while thinking up a scene. Lily’s favorite things in life are reading, thinking about reading, buying books for reading….and writing. Her other secret pleasure is meeting with her plot editor in public to discuss her books and watching the shocked expressions of the people around her that don’t realize she’s talking about a book. When Lily is not reading, writing, wandering or freaking out innocent bystanders, she’s sleeping.
