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.

The Betrayal of Maggie Blair

The Betrayal of Maggie Blair - Elizabeth Laird Maggie and her grandmother have been accused of practicing witchcraft in UK in probably the 1700’s. Maggie escapes and lives with other family members along the way she battle internally with God and what comes natural to her. As she joins her other family members they battle with government and religious laws themselves and only time will tell when the family will be caught practicing faith not in the kings way.

I was hoping for more fantasy with this book. I didn’t realize that it was going to be more of a historical dark fiction. I thought it was fast paced even though there was not much action more drama and deception. I guess the cover threw me off and I just thought it looked more magical.

While there are some general things about witchcraft and Maggie battling with her natural ability to heal others like her grandmother there was no real fantasy. Just a lot of hardship and learning the strengths of people.

An okay but not what I thought it was going to be.
