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 promise, promise, promise to finish We Need to Talk About Kevin by this week. I'm more than halfway through Lionel Shriver's tale, and I have to say it's been a long time since I've hated a character. I can't stand the main character Eva Khatchadourian. If I knew a person like this in real life I would run in the other direction. I'm still engaged in Sweet Dates in Basra by Jessica Jiji.
In the last few days I've added another book to the pile. Thanks to the people at Bookreporter.com (http://www.bookreporter.com/) and Harper Collins, I'm getting to read Heart of Lies by M.L. Malcolm. It's set during the aftermath of World War I. Normally I stay away from historical fiction. I don't know why, but my brain usually has a lock against historical fiction. I used to think I had to think too much with historical fiction. But I'm glad I made an exception. Leo Hoffman is on the run from counterfeiting and murder charges, but along the way he fell in love with the young Martha. So far I can tell you it's wonderful. I can only assume that is Martha on the cover looking out over the water. I think she's longing for Leo. Where is he? Is he coming back? What will Martha do without Leo? Questions I hope that get answered!
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.
