Happy Thanksgiving everyone in the US! Whether you celebrate this holiday or not, I am thankful for my readers. Amidst lots of family time, I have made time for reading (of course) and have received a number of books. I just finished reading What Happens Next by Colleen Clayton, which was excellent.
From the library I received two books this week.
Meant to Be by Lauren Morrill
Sapphire Blue by Kerstin Gier
I purchased one book.
Nine Coaches Waiting by Mary Stewart
Originally published in 1958 this book is a mystery, romance and was a lot of fun.
Look for my thoughts later this week.
From HarperCollins I was sent two books.
The Bully Book by Eric Kahn Gale
Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi
Regarding Unravel Me, I was so desperate to get an advanced copy of the book, that I wrote a letter to HarperCollins titled "In Defense of Adam Kent" in which I included the following paragraph (yes, I really wrote this):
"I am very worried that Adam is being thrown to the side in the wake of Warner’s rise in popularity. Don’t get me wrong, Warner is brilliantly written. He is an excellent VILLAIN. In fact he’s one of the best (or worst) I’ve read. But I am very uncomfortable with the idea of him turning from villain to love interest. However, Warner will do anything to succeed, so I am also not surprised by these turn of events. In light of this, I would like to take this opportunity to declare my undying support for Adam Kent. The guy who will do anything to keep Juliette safe and wants more than anything to give her a chance at freedom."
This week they sent me a copy of the book!!! I have read it, and I'm still defending Adam. I have a LOT to say about the story and the dreaded love triangle. Begrudgingly, I no longer despise Warner. Well played, sir. Stay tuned for my thoughts.
For review from an author I received one ebook.
Hale Maree by Misty Provencher
I reviewed two books this week.
Heart's Blood by Juliet Marillier
Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor
