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.

Aurora of the Northern Lights

Aurora of the Northern Lights - Holly Hardin Aurora of the Northern Lights is not entirely about Aurora - half the book is about Aurora's mother and father. Of course, there would be no Aurora if her mother and father had not met. Unfortunately she loses them and finds she is not wanted in the green land she was born in because she is different. So she travels to find her place and other Northern Fey.

I am not real sure how I feel about this one. The first read through was was a little exciting and mysterious because I didn't know where the story was going, and the art is beautiful. Reading it a second time, my focus moved to Aurora being 7 years old and feeling out of place because no one likes her,.

I think, for the most part, if I were a child I would be captivated with the pictures and characters. Children usually hold on to that exciting feeling when it is first read. I did really like it. I guess I just shouldn't look to deep.

This could also be consider a Christmas book but think it could be read all year long.
