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 Thirteenth Tale

The Thirteenth Tale - Diane Setterfield This is one of those books that I read months ago and now that I think about it, it goes down as not so remember-able. I want to say it was but in truth I just can not.

This book attracted me one because I knew it had to do with a book. Two, because of the dark secrets surrounding the family. The mystery seemed very V.C. Andrews like which is an author I use to love but have grown out of. I thought I would enjoy it much more then I did but the dark secret wasn’t that secret. The book hinted a great deal what was to come before it did so the ending was no real surprise.

I agree with many that it is confusing which time period this book takes place. It does hop back and forth from past to present which makes it all the more conflicting.

This is the first book I read from Barnes and Noble recommends list and I think I can see why they picked it. It has a certain style about it. I suppose if you never read any V.C. Andrews the ending might be surprising but to me it was not. I just wasn’t impressed with the plot. I was intrigued at first but then quickly got bored. Really wanted to like this book more.
