O.M.G.: What are you waiting for? Go out and buy this book now! Superb: It's wonderful, but you can wait for a coupon. Give it a try: It's good, but I would wait for paperback. Meh: It will be in the library eventually. Naahhhhhhhhh!!!: Do I really need to explain?
I've decided I can't keep reading Everything is Going to be Great by Rachel Shukert. I gave it more than 50-60 pages, I gave it 140 pages. It's not that Shukert is a bad writer, I just felt she was going in circles. Later this week I will explore it more in depth. I will also post a recap on my day at the Brooklyn Book Festival. I'm still engaged in The Twin's Daughter by Lauren Baratz-Logsted. I'm also starting two new books. The cover of Hush by Eishes Chayil is very mysterious with a hint of purity (if that makes sense). Those lips are telling someone to be quiet. They have to be quiet, but why? Can't wait to find out!
When I look at the cover of Up From the Blue by Susan Henderson, I think of innocence. Lost innocence by the child on the cover. At one point this child didn't have a care in the world, but what about now? I get that same since of youth and innocence from the trailer. The trailer starts out happy, but then music goes into a downward spiral. There was some kind of trauma in this child's life, but what?
I love, love to read. I accept literary fiction, chick lit, memoirs, mysteries, historical fiction and contemporary YA books for review. If you think your book is for me, I will make an exception for other genres. At this time, I am accepting a limited amount of e-books. If I can't get into your book after 60-70 pages, I will not review it. Books are read in the order they are received. Reviews will be posted within 6-8 weeks upon receiving the book. Reviews of books not yet published will be posted closer to the publication date. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Opportunities for guest posts, interviews and giveaways can also be arranged.
