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?
It's Monday, and it's time to talk about the covers of the books I'm reading. A couple of days ago, I started Fallen Grace by Mary Hooper. My first thought when I saw that cover was why can't we see her face? After a couple of chapters I realize why. Grace is an unwed teenager, who has just given birth to a stillborn baby. In her London community she is considered a "fallen" woman. Because of this I guess her face isn't worthy of showing. So far, I'm sure Grace is hiding a dark secret. Can't wait to find out.
Ever dreamed of leaving the grind of the city and moving to a farm? Maybe you have, maybe you haven't. The main character in Home to Woefield by Susan Juby gets her wish and inherits a farm. She looks pretty happy feeding chickens on her farm. This title comes out in March, and I hope to have review up in the next 10 days or so. Stay tuned!!!
Note: I'm looking for takers for my What's Up Tweeps?! feature. Here is February's question: James Frey is fleecing budding writers. Frey has created a publishing company, where students co-write novels with him for as little as $500, $250 or in some cases nothing. The bulk of the work is done by the students. Frey has "some" input. This is done on the premise that book will eventually become a bestseller, and then they reap the benefits. They've already achieved that with one book, "I am Number Four." Is Frey merely trying to help or is he robbing impressionable college students blind? Email responses to email@example.com. Entries are open until Feb. 18. Happy reading everyone!
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.
