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.

Between the Lines

Between the Lines - Jodi Picoult, Samantha van Leer I love books about retelling of fairy tales and ones that tell new tales. I have never read anything by Jodi Picoult and I know this not one of her usual stories. This story was brought to life by her daughter Samantha van Leer.

The character Delilah reminds me much of a younger version of myself. Being addicted to books and letting them take over to the point I forget other including friends or family. I imagine if one of the characters started talking to me like Olivier did to Delilah I would be even more secluded. Delilah falls for the images and her conversations with Olivier. Olivier doesn’t want to be in the fairy tale world anymore he want to be in Delilah’s world. They try many things to bring him into the real world and they fail.

I was not expecting the ending. I am not sure if I liked the ending but I did enjoy the story and the way it jumps to Delilah and Olivier in the different chapters. It was also fun to see the characters talk to each other when the book was closed. I do wonder what is going to happen to Delilah and Olivier.
