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.

Where We Belong

Where We Belong - Emily Giffin Marian works as a producer on a new show that looks like it is taking off. She has a steady boyfriend and everything seems to be working out until her past catches up with her. An 18 year old girl named Kirby knocks on Marian’s door bringing up secrets Marian knew that she would have to deal with. I am starting to really like Emily Giffin writing. It only took me a couple day to read. I have only read one other book by her Something Borrowed and I saw the movie too. So why is this only the second book by her I have read? Because I have a lot in my “To Be Read” pile. I am glad the book club I am following picked this book. Emily Giffin has a very comforting way of writing . Her books remind me of Kristen Hannah books but still have a different feel for the characters. I love the young girl, Kirby, even though she was a teenager she handle everything ...almost everything as a adult. As for Marian, I feel she could have handled things differently. I am not sure I liked the end of the book but the more I think about it how else would it have ended to make me feel satisfied.
