Myth 8

Cop Town by Karin Slaughter

coptowncover

 

Danielle’s Review

1970’s. Atlanta. Race war or serial killer?

Maggie Lawson, twenty-three-year-old cop, is thrust into the mystery when her brother is almost killed by a man known as “The Shooter”. Maggie, of course, is concerned for her brother’s health– at least until things start not adding up.

Kate Murphy is a rookie officer who is more wet behind the ears than grown up. After her husband is killed in Vietnam, she is paired up with Maggie, who takes her under her wings.

When the two are given Maggie’s brother’s case to investigate, all hell breaks loose– literally.

Like Slaughter’s other books, this one is full of action, danger, and suspense. I, personally, was happy that she was so realistic in terms of the characterization of the 1970’s Atlanta residents.

Not for the faint of heart, this one will keep you on the edge of your seat– begging for more.

Myth 8

My Kind of Crazy by Katie O’Sullivan

Danielle’s Review

Katie O’Sullivan’s My Kind of Crazy is a wonderful new contemporary romance ready to pull at your heart strings. This story hit many sweet spots for me- a strong female lead, a hot man who isn’t too sensitive, and a puppy.

Kendall Roarke is a woman on a mission. Above all else, she’s trying to save her bed and breakfast after an awful divorce. Enter Jonathan Reynolds, a hot new divorcee who also happens to be the new town vet, and sparks begin to fly.

There are so many good things I can say about this book that there isn’t enough room to list them all, but the biggest thing that always stands out to me about O’Sullivan’s writing: she has this amazing ability to inject a beautiful sense of sweetness into her stories that is rarely seen today.

My Kind of Crazy is a great book to add to your summer reading list. I can’t wait to see what O’Sullivan comes up with next.

vcbirlidis 2 lowWhat a treat today’s guest is! Author of the intriguing and enchanting Muse Unexpected, V. C. Birlidis is as fun and engaging as his novel. I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know the fabulous V through Facebook and other social media and his sense of humor and kindness have struck a chord with me. Join me in finding out more about this fascinating author.

 

tourabouttheauthora

For Vasilios Constantine Birlidis (V.C. Birlidis), the road to getting published has been a long one. The inspiration for his novel, Muse Unexpected, was ignited when he was a child, due to his father reading to him from a worn paperback about the Greek Myths. The myths were certainly not the sort of bedtime story to read to a nine year old with an overactive imagination, and although he often begged his father to read another one, Vasilios experienced many sleepless and anxiety filled nights during his childhood.

Beginning in junior high, Vasilios began to search for an outlet for his bottled-up creativity and auditioned and won placement in The New World School of the Arts (Formerly PAVAC), in their Musical Theater program, but it was during the summer of his 16th year that Vasilios discovered a true outlet for the creativity he didn’t know how to express. Always having been a fan of the ballet, Vasilios began taking classes at the renowned ballet instructor/studio, Martha Mahr School of Ballet. It was during the many grueling classical ballet classes where the overweight teenager was transformed into a strong, confident and lean individual.

Vasilios went on to perform with The Miami Ballet, BalletMet Columbus and Columbus Youth Ballet.

Myth 8

Starshine by G.S. Jennsen

Danielle’s Review

When one thinks of epic Sci Fi, the names Herbert, Bruin, and Asimov jump to mind. I think that G.S. Jennsen is getting close.

I must say, though, that this is not a book for people who expect lighthearted banter and funny aliens ala Star Wars. This is more traditional Sci-Fi.

In my opinion, the tech and world-building are the crowning jewels of this book. I didn’t feel like I had to ask questions as to what things were, but the different technology wasn’t presented in a hard to read way either.

If there is one flaw, I could have done without so many flashbacks. Some seemed a little redundant and bogged down the beginning of the story for me, but other readers could very well feel differently.

donna

I’m very excited about this particular interview because we welcome Donna Huber to the show. What makes Donna different is that she’s written an extremely helpful book for any author who uses the internet to connect with their readers. But Donna is also is a publicist, reviewer and popular blogger. And she is very nice. Always willing to answer a question or provide advice. I was fortunate enough to have her organize a blog tour for my own series last summer and got to know her then.

 

tourabouttheauthora

Donna Huber is an avid reader and natural encourager. She is the blogger behind Girl Who Reads where, in addition to book reviews and author appearances, she writes the popular blogging advice series, “Tips on Thursday.” She has worked as a freelance publicist since 2010 assisting publishers and authors with their marketing and publicity needs. Most notably, she was the publicist for The Writer’s Coffee Shop Publishing House edition of Fifty Shades of Grey and Fifty Shades Darker by E. L. James. When she is not doling out blogging advice or promoting the next bestseller, she can be found spending time with family (particularly the four legged, furry members), rewatching Downton Abbey and Harry Potter, or trying to make a dent in her never ending to-be-read pile.

Myth 8

Four Days with Hemingway’s Ghost by Tom Winton

Christoph’s Review

Four Days with Hemingway’s Ghost by Tom Winton is a remarkably original and cleverly written story.

The main character, Jack, a mild and ambiguous fan of Hemingway and his work, gets to meet his ‘hero’ while in a coma. He spends four days with him, talking about life, the afterlife, Hemingway’s life and they even get to visit famous locations and people of the famous author’s life.

What happens towards the end of the novel is somewhat of a surprise and I am reluctant to share much about it in a review. I don’t want to hype your expectations either with promises of a huge twist but a change of direction takes place that is well fitting and surprising. Let it be sufficient that the storyline cracks open a new dimension and the effects of the meeting in the coma are turning the novel into something else altogether, and something good for that matter.

From the first paragraph I knew that Jack had a story to tell and that I would be wanting to hear it. For the entire book that desire to follow the plot did not diminish but actually intensified. I was surprised how much abotu Hemingway I remembered as he wanders through the story and talks about his life. The ending left me very satisfied and in awe of the story.

Interesting and cleverly written without pretence and self-indulgence this is very likeable and enjoyable to read. Winton handles the drama and literary heaviness without losing sight of necessary balance and distance via humour and wit.

Highly recommended.
