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.

Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life

Animal, Vegetable, Miracle : A Year of Food Life - Barbara Kingsolver, Steven L. Hopp, Camille Kingsolver I picked this book from the Refer A Book Friday contest. Amy of The Sleepy Reader recommend it; you can see her review here. I have always been interested in growing things and farming because some of the earlier generations of my family were farmers. I learned much from this book about potatoes and how they grow a green leafy plant when they are ready to pull. I also learned that pineapples don't grow on trees... I didn't know this, they look like tree-fruit to me. A lot of this book was interesting, and I had much to learn from it. Then there were times where you would get to much farming detail and it got a little boring. Lastly, there were times when they would beat you over the head with how Americans don't eat healthy. Yes ... Yes I raise my hand. I am one of those, but you don't have to keep repeating it. I also picked this book hoping it would give me that kick in the butt to eat healthier, and it didn't really because it's too late for me to start growing my own food, so I just felt bad throughout the book. I have thought about buying locally, but no I haven't don't that either. I had a hard time getting through this book mostly I think because of feeling bad about myself part and because you can only read or listen to a person talk about a certain subject for so long before you have to take a break. I needed lots of breaks.
