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 Host: A Novel

The Host - Stephenie Meyer This was the first Stephenie Meyer book I started reading, and I thought it was so good. Then I put it down for whatever reason and read Twilight. I thought Twilight was really good! Then I went back The Host and didn't think this was so good, so it took me a while to finish it. I don't have anything to point out that I didn't like about it, though. All in all I thought The Host was pretty good. It has a very different feel than Twilight, and it is hard jump to from one to the other. The love story is different and not as defined as Twilight's. If I were not to compare it to Twilight, I would say standing alone it is a good sci fi book. It is amazing how much drama can be created when the main character spends most of the book in an underground community hiding from aliens. The real subject of the story is the question, what is a soul worth? Can you take another soul for another soul? Or should all life have a chance at life? There is no real answer to those questions, and this book is just one take on them. I enjoyed The Host and would recommend it as pretty good read.
