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 didn't even have to read the full e-mail pitch before knowing I wanted to read The Civilized World by Susi Wyss. Like a lot of books, that cover pulled me in right away. The bright colors and that braid have to mean something right? I thought the cover was gorgeous. The book is set in Africa and told from the perspective of five women. I don't know what their bond is. But they have to bonded right? I interpret that braid to mean they are bonded by friendship. Or perhaps bonded by circumstances? Whatever the reason I wanted to know why. I haven't started reading it yet, but I will soon. Can't wait to dive in!!
Note: I'm looking for takers for my What's Up Tweeps?! feature. Here is April's question: Do you post negative book reviews? Why or why not? E-mail responses to email@example.com. Entries are open until April 21. If you have a question or topic that you would like to see discussed here, feel free to e-mail me. Who knows what we can come up with. 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.
