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.

Scented Adventures of The Bouquet Sisters in Fairyland

Scented Adventures Of The Bouquet Sisters In Fairyland - Susan Liberty Hall Yes this is a scratch and sniff book. Yes there are fairies. Written in are the author’s grandchildren as characters. The book ties in healing essential oils, world healing and religion

The art is grand. It hard not to love Josephine Wall’s work. Having a scented section in the book is an awesome idea. Connecting it to fairies and healing is a wonderful idea.

I thought when I first started reading this it was going to go into more about the aromatherapy of the oils or scents you smell in the book but it did not have as much as I hoped. The Fairies in the book I don’t they had to be there or really remember which were the fairies. The author’s thoughts on religion runs through rabidly. It comes across as preachy and just takes away from the fantasy story. There were not as many scratch n sniff sections, maybe 3 or 4. One thing that really irks me about the end is the author basically states not to get you essential oils from anyone except her brand.

I was disappointed in the book. It was not even a good story more as thoughts weaven not so coherently about healing the world. Which I think is a great topic and yes we should be healing us and the world. I just wish the book had more structure.
