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 Secret Plot to Save the Tsar: The Truth Behind the Romanov Mystery

The Secret Plot to Save the Tsar: The Truth Behind the Romanov Mystery - Shay McNeal History of the Romanovs has led to many stories of their death or possible "escape". This book researches the possibility of certain family or friends that may have planned or just had in their power to try and save the last Tsar of Russia of eminent doom. I got about halfway through the book and I understood the author was examining plots by many people to save the Tsar. Near the end I was able to follow because some of the story was told as a story. As I discussed the book with my husband he said it sounds like a scholarly book, which I have to agree with. Most of book is a list of names and people would, or tried to save the Tsar. The first half was more like putting a piece of furniture together. Part A agrees with part B so they try to connect with Part C and it does not come together. The second half of the book the was some familiarity as I read the last days of the Tsar and family then near the end it becomes similar to the beginning as we read about the theories of other books by other authors whether any of the family did survive. In all the book was too impersonal. I wanted to know more what the author thought in the end. I also wish the beginning had been written in a way that connected the story together and not just a bunch of names of people I did not know, although some I did.
