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.

Land of a Hundred Wonders

Land of a Hundred Wonders - Lesley Kagen Land of a Hundred Wonders took place in Kentucky in 1973 and had quite a bit of mystery, and I liked that. I related a lot to the main character Gibby having certain memory problems myself. I also like the way she was written when she talked or thought. When she would forget things people didn't keep repeating things to her over and over, which can get annoying if done wrong. The book kept the pace pretty steady too ... although I will say it comes very close to being a story with a stupidity plot, where if people aren't doing obvious, stupid things, then their wouldn't be a conflict in the first place. I think the author was trying to show that, like Gibby, mostly everyone has there NQR moments and not that they were all stupid. But sometimes I did wonder... There were times the characters did things that surprised me, and then there were also some predictable moments. I haven't read many books that take place in the south, in fact the only other one I can think of is Gone With the Wind, and my only real problem with this was I didn't like how everyone seemed to not think things through. Despite that, I did find the book enjoyable.
