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.

Sweet Misfortune

Sweet Misfortune - Kevin Alan Milne Sophie has had much misery in her life. Her parents are dead, her fiance canceled their wedding a week before, and now her ex-fiance is back and wants a second chance to explain himself. Sophie is not buying it and gives her ex, Garrett, a task she believes will never get done. She is in for a few surprises.

I liked so many things in this book. The characters are all likable and make the story so enjoyable you don't want to finish. I also found it inspiring and uplifting.

After her misfortunes, Sophie did turn her sadness into something better. She believed that her parents death was her fault, even though she was only a little girl who wanted piece of chocolate. But she eventually started a chocolate shop. After her wedding was canceled, Sophie came up with misfortune cookies - just like fortune cookies, except they taste bad and have not-so-nice fortunes. They turn out to be a huge hit. The job Sophie gives Garret is to find 100 reasons for happiness. He has to put an ad in a newspaper and the answers are sent to her P.O. Box. Happiness comes flying in.

As the story nears the end, you'll never guess where it ends up going. My husband said it sounds like chick lit, but I don't feel like it is chick lit. When I have read books I consider chick lit, those have a dumb-downed feeling. This feels very different. This book is fun, exciting, inspiring and heartwarming.
