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.

Horror That Tackles The Mind

Monstress Volume 1: Awakening - Marjorie M. Liu
A teenage girl searching for answers on her mother’s death and the horror that is transforming her mind and body.

 

Once you get into this graphic novel, which might take a little bit, the characters are likeable and some horrible.  They make you feel the way you should which terror, fear and a little hope for our main character.

 

The art is good reminds me of anime and manga. Only thing it is the type anime manga art I dislike.  I am not a fan of the gory, and bloody art. Maybe that is because in high school art class we watched the anime Akira over and over.  It was really gross and that is how I found some of the art. It’s really great art just not a fan of the theme.  

 

I read this because I heard good things about it and Neil Gaiman had a good quote about it.  I will probably read volume two to find out what happens.  Once I got through the beginning which is a little vague in storytelling wise but starts to come together at the end.  Still worth a read.
