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 been awhile since I read a memoir, so thanks to HarperCollins I have one. I'm about 50 pages into Girls Like Us by Rachel Lloyd. It's about Lloyd's own struggles and those of girls who have been trafficked in the sex industry. Lloyd has dedicated her adult life to helping girls rebuild their lives. Judging by that cover, it's easy to tell that his can happen to any woman. Notice how the women on that cover are of several racial backgrounds. It's a widespread problem and doesn't discriminate.
Note: A review of My One and Only by Kristan Higgins will be posted on Tuesday. Also, 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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 email@example.com
Opportunities for guest posts, interviews and giveaways can also be arranged.
