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?
"The girl in the backseat wouldn't stop yelling. She had black hair and huge brown eyes, wide with fright. Maybe she was pretty. Griffin didn't know. All he knew was that right now she was a big problem. Even though he was freaking out, he forced himself to think. Thank God no one was nearby."
Sounds interesting, and that's just the start of the second chapter. In keeping with my new rule (three review books, one personal), I'm starting a book from my personal reading pile. Months ago I won a copy of Girl Stolen by April Henry from Goodreads. A 16-year-old blind girl is sleeping the backseat of the car, unbeknownst to the man who steals the car. Where does this journey lead? I've been wanting to read this one for a while. Look at the cover. We don't know what she looks like, but the air of fright is there. One of her eyes is peeking through, but it's all black. An omen perhaps? Doesn't sound like a happy story. Stay tuned!
Notes: I'm looking for takers for my What's Up Tweeps?! feature and I'm still hosting a giveaway for Delirious by Daniel Palmer. Click the tabs at the top of the page for details. And, I hope to have a review of Delirious up by the end of the week. Happy reading!
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.
