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.

Ugly to Start With

Ugly to Start With - John Michael Cummings Jason tries to find ways to make his life better than it is now. Ugly to start with means his young life with his family and area he lives in has always been a little ugly. Each stories captures pieces Jason’s will to climb out of a dark hole or him getting pushed back in.

These short stories were very different from what I have read in the past. Although they are dark I was still wrapped up into Jason’s life that I could not stop reading. Even after I finished I was hoping for more. Probably the story that sticks with me the most with, Shanice, a black girl he gets a school project to draw her for art class. I felt I was really there with them just listening to their conversation. I was sorry when the book ended especially since it seemed it was on a cliff hanger. Eager to see what comes next.
