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.

All the King's Men

All the King's Men - Robert Penn Warren My husband read this years before me and thought the author, Robert Penn Warren was too descriptive. I agree that some spots were descriptive but there was beauty in the words that made the book likable. I really felt for the main character Jack Burden, especially the flashback of his first love. It made you wonder if things had gone differently with them would certain people be alive or doing something different.

The things I disliked were probably the things I was suppose to dislike. For example, the corruption in politics and in life. Relationships in the book were for the most part pretty bleak and sad.

I can not say I loved this book or that I disliked it. I liked it a lot more than I thought I would and found some beauty in the misery of Jack’s life.
