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 Goddess Test (Harlequin Teen)

The Goddess Test - Aimee Carter Kate and her mom are close. Kate’s mom is also dying. While Kate struggles to deal with losing her mother, she makes friends in a new town. After an accident with a “friend” dying, Kate is found by Henry, who says he is Hades, and to prove it brings her “friend” back to life.

I think of this book and the surprise ending is what sticks to memory but I don’t want to spoil the book. In my opinion this is one the best retelling of a Greek Myth.

The bond that Kate and her mother have really pull at the heart string and had me tearing up a little. That doesn’t happen often with me and books.

I won’t give it 5 stars because there was some things that I pretty much guessed was going to happen. Even with the typical scenes you might expect, this a good story. I can’t really imagine what comes next in the series, this being the first book.
