Weekly Book Giveaway: You Have Seven Messages, by Stewart Lewis

2013-04-15-weekly-book-giveaway-you-have-seven-messages-by-stewart-lewis

After reading Beth Reekles's The Kissing Booth last Friday (which I'll be writing about as soon as I can figure out a way to transform my immediate reaction into a halfway coherent review*), I was in the mood for something a little more... solid, let's say. So this week's Book Giveaway pick is Stewart Lewis's You Have Seven Messages, which I will be reviewing this afternoon...

Weekly Book Giveaway: Plain Kate, by Erin Bow

2013-04-08-weekly-book-giveaway-plain-kate-by-erin-bow

This week's book giveaway pick is Erin Bow's debut novel Plain Kate, which I'm planning to read and review this afternoon, despite the fact that stories about witch burnings—even thwarted ones, which I'm assuming is the case here—totally give creep me out. I'm doing this for you, dear readers...

Weekly Book Giveaway: Trackers and Trackers: Shantorian, by Patrick Carman

2013-04-01-weekly-book-giveaway-trackers-and-trackers-shantorian-by-patrick-carman

We're giving away two books this week: Patrick Carman's Trackers and Trackers: Shantorian. Like his Skeleton Creek series, they appear to be full of unnecessary bells and whistles, but who knows? Maybe all the digital tie-ins and stuff will be magical. I'll have more for you on Wednesday, when I post the review...

Weekly Book Giveaway: Under My Hat, edited by Jonathan Strahan

2013-03-25-weekly-book-giveaway-under-my-hat-edited-by-jonathan-strahan

This week's book giveaway pick is Under My Hat: Tales from the Cauldron, a collection of eighteen short stories inspired by witchcraft, edited by Jonathan Strahan. I'll post my full review this afternoon, but here's the quickie version: I'd give the overall collection a solid B+, with a couple of stories creeping up into A territory and one slipping into the C range...

2013-03-18-weekly-book-giveaway-ready-player-one-by-ernest-cline

This week's book giveaway pick is Ernest Cline's Ready Player One, which we're planning to review tomorrow. I haven't finished it yet, but thus far it appears to be a modern-day reworking of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, only with video games instead of candy...

2013-02-25-weekly-book-giveaway-the-cookbook-collector-by-allegra-goodman

We won't be reviewing the book in question until Wednesday (we're pretty disorganized this week, even by our standards), but our current Weekly Book Giveaway pick is Allegra Goodman's 2010 novel The Cookbook Collector. Here's hoping it finds a good home amongst you...

Weekly Book Giveaway: Please Ignore Vera Dietz, by A. S. King

2013-02-19-weekly-book-giveaway-please-ignore-vera-dietz-by-a-s-king

Our current Weekly Book Giveaway pick is A.S. King's Please Ignore Vera Dietz, which we reviewed here. We don't want to sound like we're damning with faint praise (the book is really good), but here are our thoughts in a nutshell: King's book is more fun than any story about a budding teenage alcoholic mourning her best friend ought to be...

Weekly Book Giveaway: Floors, by Patrick Carman

2013-02-04-weekly-book-giveaway-floors-by-patrick-carman

This week's book giveaway title is Floors, the latest offering from prolific children's author Patrick Carman. Unlike some of his other recent releases, this is just a book (there are no video tie-ins or whatever), but we really prefer that, so here's hoping the story is entertaining enough to stand on its own two feet. Our review will go up tomorrow morning...

In an effort to get our "To Be Read" pile down to less terrifying heights, during the month of December we are planning to post one review per day, Monday through Friday. In addition, we'll be increasing our Weekly Book Giveaway to two books per week. (Gotta get rid of the reviewed books somehow, right?)

This week's book giveaway is Romeo Redeemed, the self-described "sizzling sequel" to Stacey Jay's Juliet Immortal, which we reviewed (vitriolically) here. Our review of Romeo Redeemed should go up on Thursday, but in the meanwhile you can amuse yourself by laughing at that cover. I certainly will be...

Weekly Book Giveaway: A Brief History of Montmaray, by Michelle Cooper

2012-11-05-weekly-book-giveaway-a-brief-history-of-montmaray-by-michelle-cooper

This week's book giveaway title is Michelle Cooper's excellent 2010 novel A Brief History of Montmaray, which we reviewed here. (We'll be reviewing the second and third books in the trilogy later this week, by the way.) We're pretty sick of real politics at the moment, so why not immerse ourselves in the political maneuvering of a (fictional) royal family from an inconsequential island in 1937...
