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 Universe Versus Alex Woods

The Universe Versus Alex Woods - Gavin Extence Alex Woods is a remarkable boy who not only overcomes his obstacles but sticks to his beliefs. Certain things in Alex’s life set in motion, all starting with a fallen meteor knocking him unconscious . Whether it is the meteor or the way he was brought up Alex sometimes looks at things too logically. Especially when he later becomes friends with a man, Mr. Peterson, in the neighborhood. There friendship and the future decisions they make will surprise the world. I absolutely love books that have book lovers in the story. Especially one as knowledgeable as Alex Woods who goes from reading about the universe and the mind to Kurt Vonnegut. Now that I have finished reading the book I look back and think “Wow, a lot happened to Alex”. Alex is not afraid to speak his mind and sometimes comes off naive. The fact that he is a teenager the naive part of Alex felt real not to say the outspoken Alex did not feel real, it just seems unique to me. I had a hard time getting to the end of the book because I did not want to leaves Alex’s world which in truth is not different than ours. So I guess I really wanted to stay with Alex some more. Excellent writing and description. I fell deeply into the story. The Universe Versus Alex Woods is a heartfelt exploration that will make you think about what your beliefs are and whether the are right or wrong.
