Nell’s Book Hunt
Writing reviews is sometimes very difficult. How do you come up with the right words to describe yet one more AWESOME book? Give it a shot and tell ’em what you feel is the best advice I have.
A reviewer doesn’t usually need hindrances to bring their writing to a complete and utter stop. Time is of essence and deadlines wait for no one. Well…..maybe they wait for kittens. She decided that of all the comfortable spots in the house, my notebook looked the best. “Shove her down!” I heard from someone in the back. *shudder* I cannot do THAT! It is a general rule that if any sort of animal has selected me for any sort of affection or comfort, I cannot move until they decide to find another spot…..or if I have to pee. Hence, my reviews will have to wait.
Okay, on to the book hunt. This is a slight variance from the norm. The blurb sounded like a good book/good series to give a whirl. Plus, the guy on the front looked really good. Can’t help it. Judging books by covers will someday get me into trouble, I know! Anyway, it’s free on Kindle | Nook today.
