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! Congratulations to Kameron Hurley on her Hugo Award win for her blog article, ‘We Have Always Fought’: Challenging the ‘Women, Cattle and Slaves’ Narrative! We’re reviewing her new novel, The Mirror Empire, this week. It’s Book #1 in the Worldbreaker Saga series and you’ll definitely want to check this one out!
Time to soak up the last rays of summer with a good book!
Monday, August 25th, 2014: After giving my back a break, it’s time to get back to packing up mom’s house. BTW: I finally got the house trim colors tested and they are going to look perfect!
Tuesday, August 26th, 2014: We’re reviewing The Mirror Empire, Book #1 in The Worldbreaker Saga by Hugo award-winning author Kameron Hurley. A world is at war with itself and at the center of that war are gifted pacifists, the Dhai, who must choose whether to come to the aid of their besieged neighbors, and an orphan who made a promise to her mother. Who will do what it takes to stop the invaders from destroying their world?
Wednesday, August 27th, 2014: We’re reviewing The Moment of Everything by Shelly King. When Maggie got laid off from the Silicon Valley startup she helped launch, she was lost. The only thing that kept her going even marginally was hanging out at The Dragonfly, her local used bookstore. Could she use this eccentric bookstore as a project to showcase her social media skills and get back in the dot-com game?
Thursday, August 28th, 2014: We’re reviewing The Aftermath by Jen Alexander. Claudia and her clan have been fighting for survival on the streets of a radically changed Nashville since 2036, the year the world changed. They literally never know if they’ll live to see the next day. But Claudia keeps dreaming of a different world, a nice clean modern one and of a girl who seems familiar. But are they dreams? Could such a world exist? Is there more out there than The Aftermath?
Friday, August 29th, 2014: I’m starting the Labor Day Weekend off by playing tourist on the beach. I haven’t walked over to the beach much this summer, with all the sorting, tossing, and packing to do – not to mention the trips to mom’s assisted living home. How nuts is that? Literally feet from the ocean and not taking advantage of it! Where did I put that DIY head examination kit?
Saturday, August 30th, 2014 thru Monday, September 1, 2014: We’ll be celebrating a long Labor Day Weekend, like the rest of you. This page will be updated on Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014, with the upcoming week’s reviews and giveaways. Any new giveaway winners will be updated that day.
