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.

Jumble Pie

Jumble Pie - Melanie Lynne Hauser To be honest I was first like, "Oh... *scrunches up face*... an e-book. I don't wanna read that*whines*." (I am not sure how I feel about e-books) Boy, am glad I did read it. A very good read. Anyone who has had a friendship with a person where you both are just in different places at different times in life, but yet you try to keep the friendship alive because you have just been friends for so long, will relate to this book. It's a sometimes funny, happy and sad book. In the beginning you can't help but feel jealous for Emily because she is so book smart and knows what she wants, and you feel so sad for Juliet, who feels so not smart and out of place. But through the book the feelings switch for the characters. Juliet becomes the one who knows what she wants and excels, while Emily gets kind of lost.I liked the pie as metaphor for their friendship I have had certain things, like necklaces, that I have felt have been metaphors for relationships, but I am kinda seeing that even metaphors have to change with relationships. You can read this book free at the author's website, here, in e-book format. I also have to mention that it gets a plus for mostly taking place in the 1980's, because that's when I grew up as well. The only thing I think the author could have added was a recipe for that Jumble Pie, because every time they talked about it I wanted it!
