So I had an advance review ready for “Wrecked” by Charlotte Roche but Harper Collins got in touch and asked me to hold off as they want to get a bit more of a buzz going for the book ad because none of the big newspapers/mags had had a chance to review it yet. Damn! I could have had a scoop! Never mind… Instead, I’ll treat you to a Six Word Review (much like Hemingway’s Six Word Story): Neuroses abound, “we” in every bite.
Oooooh, mystifying! I’ll keep you updated on when the full review comes out but seriously? I can’t stop thinking about this book. That being said it was pretty heavy reading so I’m looking forward to a good thriller… namely “Where the Devil Can’t Go” by Anya Lipska. This should be an advance review so keep your peepers peeled towards the start of next week for the review. To whet your appetite, here’s a trailer for the book:
Have I ever mentioned that I think it’s amazing that they’re making TRAILERS for BOOKS??!! Brilliant.
Anyhow, now for the super fun stuff.
I’m doing my first ever giveaway!
So basically I have a crap-ton of books, both on my kindle and on the shelf and it’s driving me and N batty. So I’d like to give away one of the books off of my shelf every so often, just to lighten the load. I’m a bit of a hoarder when it comes to books but part of me thinks (hopes!) that if I know a book is going to a loving home I’ll be happier to part with it. Stay tuned… you might get your mitts on some really interesting titles if you play your cards right!
For my first giveaway, I’m offering up my copy of Christopher Winn’s “I Never Knew That About London“!!!
So what do you have to do to win? Well it’ll be something different each time around but this time in the comments I want you to tell me where the most exciting place is that you’ve ever been… and it can be as random as you want! I’ll use a random number generator to select the winner on Friday morning at 9am (UK time!). I’ll ship anywhere so location shouldn’t be a factor.
PS – OMG OMG OMG OMG. I now own this blog. Seriously. I have a “pro” account now and will have a real life domain soon. I feel as if I’m being crushed under the weight of pressure to perform and do my $99 proud. But in a good way. I think.
