Confuzzled Books

If you are wondering what kinds of books I review and events I host, this little section is the place to look. Books I love to read: Children's, Young Adult, Paranormal and Fantasy books. Books I like to read: General Fiction, Romances, Religious Fiction, Mysteries and Biographies. So those are the genres of books I will generally review. If you send me a book outside of those areas, I'll consider it, but it may not fit my tastes. Reviews will take about 2 months to post; I try to post them around the time the book is released. On giveaways: Sending me a signed book to give away on the site is a great way to get your book noticed. I do a "mystery book" giveaway about every 2 weeks, where I read the book and twitter about it without revealing its title, then reveal what I've been reading and give it away. The whole event takes a couple weeks, and I feature the giveaway book on my blog for most of that time.

Neil Patrick Harris: Choose Your Own Autobiography - Neil Patrick Harris
Choose Your Own Autobiography is one of the most creative autobiographies I have ever read or even heard of.   We are welcomed into the life of actor Neil Patrick Harris best known for his acting roles as a young doctor named Doogie Howser M.D. or the womanizing Barney Stinson on How I Met Your Mother.   Like the Choose Your Own Adventure books from the 1980’s we get to decide how the stories (or in this case NPH’s life) unfold.

 

First off, I am a big fan of Neil Patrick Harris.  There is something about him that makes it hard to not like him.  This memoir really showcases his sense of humor not just because you get to choose what happens. As I continued to read I felt more and more like I was listening to an old friend chat about his life.  Which so far has been pretty awesome.

 

While the Choose Your Own theme was an awesome idea.  I had a hard time going back to past pages after meeting an early end. It just became tedious reading what I had already read.

 

Here’s to hoping that Neil Patrick Harris still has a long career in entertainment because I would like to see another book from him.
