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?
Every week Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books hosts a blog hop. Put your link in, post a comment and you can discover a lot of great blogs. The Hop lasts Friday-Monday every week. This week's question/task: Pick a character from a book you are currently reading or have just finished and tell us about him/her. I'm going to have to think...I'm reading several books, it's hard to pick just one. I have to pick the mother in There is no Year by Blake Butler. I say, "the mother" because none of the characters in the book have names. Well, I'm not finished but I assume no one will have a name by the end. In the beginning, the mother seems very typical. She's caring for her family. But then she becomes very weird. She starts seeing an exact copy of herself and the rest of the family. She kills them, even burying one in the forest. So far, reading about the characters in the book is like trying to solve a big puzzle. I only have a few pieces of the puzzle, despite being 200+ pages in.
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.
