We also love to host book giveaways! Congratulations to Ramez Naam on winning the 2014 Promethius Award for Nexus! Click here to read our review of this evolutionary sci-fi novel!

What Do You Get Out of Reading?
Monday, July 21st, 2014: The decluttering and sorting out of mom’s house has at times seemed like a neverending story, and one you’re probably tired of hearing about. I’m happy to report that real progress has finally been made and I can see the light at the end of the clutter tunnel. Yay! *jumps for joy*
Tuesday, July 22nd, 2014: We’re reviewing A Man Called Ove, an international bestseller by Fredrik Backman. Ove is a curmudgeon with a deeply hidden marshmallow center, but is anyone willing to dig deep enough to find it?
Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014: We’re reviewing and hosting a Giveaway for Dear Daughter by Elizabeth Little. Janie Jenkins just got out of prison after ten years, on a technicality. Everyone says she murdered her mother, but did she? Even she isn’t sure…
Thursday, July 24th, 2014: We’re reviewing The Good Girl by Mary Kubica. Mia is a privileged, smart girl who becomes an inner city art teacher against her parents’ wishes. Then one night she leaves a local bar with a cute guy and disappears. Detective Gabe Hoffman will stop at nothing to find her, but what really happened to Mia?
Friday, July 25th, 2014: If everything works as planned, I’m planning another day-long field trip to go visit mom in long-term care. Yay! If things don’t work out, I’ll be getting out my handy-dandy paint brush and/or cranking up the weed whacker because a bit of house fixing is on the agenda.
Saturday or Sunday, July 26th & 27th, 2014: We’ll update this page with reviews and giveaways for the upcoming week, and post a new giveaway winner.

Archetype is by M.D. Waters. This is an exception for us because we’re reviewing Book #1 in a 2-book series just before the sequel’s release. It’s the future and women who can bear children are rare jewels, but Emma doesn’t know that. In fact, when she awakens, she has no clue who she is or anything about her history. Although she feels drawn to and would like to trust the man who says he’s her husband, she keeps dreaming about a different life. Which is real?Click on the book title to go to the Giveaway Page!
