Welcome to Popcorn Reads!
At PopcornReads.com, we’re life-long bookaholics who’ve always been passionate about the joys of reading. This publication is about sharing books, e-readers and other book related products we love with you. Hopefully you’ll love them as much as we do!
What’s a Popcorn Read? It entertains you, triggering all of your emotions and often your funny bone. Above all, it’s a rollicking good time – however you define that. We hope you find great new reads among our favorites, so check back often to see what new books we’re reviewing! We’re eclectic readers, so you’ll find reviews of all kinds of fiction here. We also love to host book giveaways!
Enjoy the Spring Beauty While You’re Reading!
Now that Spring is finally showing its flowery face, it’s time to go read outside – Yay!
Monday, April 14th, 2014: We’ll be wrestling the alligators that life has been throwing at us lately. Anyone want a new pair of alligator shoes?
Tuesday, April 15th, 2014: We’re reviewing The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August by Claire North (a pseudonym for an acclaimed British author). Poor Harry August seems doomed to repeat the same life over and over again down through history, no matter how many times he lives it. But what if something changed?
Wednesday, April 16th, 2014: We’re reviewing Duke City Split by Max Austin. This is Book #1 in a new trilogy. Bet you never thought of career bank robbers as stand-up family men but some are. What will this one do when his family life is suddenly threatened by his career?
Thursday, April 17th, 2014: We’re reviewing and hosting a Giveaway for Odds Against Tomorrow by Nathaniel Rich. In this near future novel, Mitchel Zukor is the analytical brain behind Future World – a company that protects and indemnifies companies against future catastrophes. What price does he pay for immersing himself so much in potential disasters that he can’t see what’s happening around him now?
Friday, April 18th, 2014: We’ll be crafting that alligator we wrestled on Monday into a fine, if slightly gruesome, pair of alligator shoes. Take that, life’s alligators!
Saturday & Sunday, April 19th & 20th, 2014: At some point this weekend, we’ll update this page with reviews and giveaways for the upcoming week.
Be sure to check below to see which continuing giveaways you want to enter before it’s too late!
