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?
Of the four books I'm currently reading, three of them fall on the romantic side. Enough About Love by Herve Le Tellier is the latest one. Two women, who don't know each other, engage in extramarital affairs. At some point their lives will collide. The cover doesn't give much away, but look at the letter "O" in each word. The faint hint of a face is there. Happy or sad, I can't tell, but there is a story there.
I've read one book by Kristin Hannah, True Colors, and wasn't a big fan. I thought the book teetered on Lifetime Movie of the Week territory. But a so-so book isn't enough to turn me off a particular author. I saw the description for Night Road on Goodreads and was intrigued. A happily married couple with two children welcomes a mysterious girl into their family. A tragic accident has everyone blaming the new girl and the family tries to put the pieces back together. So I thought why not? I entered the giveaway on Goodreads, but I didn't win. I forgot about it and thought I'll just buy the book when it comes out. But fate intervened again, St Martin's Press held a giveaway. I entered and won an ARC.
The cover of Night Road is gorgeous too. You can see part of this girl's face, with two people walking in the distance. Whatever happens on this road can't be good. Can't wait to find out!!
Notes: A review of The Tapestry of Love by Rosy Thornton should be up within the next week. I'm looking for takers for March's edition of What's Up Tweeps?! Here is the question: With so many blogs out there, do you feel pressure to pick a genre/niche? Ever wonder how you can stand out among the masses? E-mail entries to email@example.com. Entries are open until March 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.
