When seventeen-year-old Elena moves with her mother into her late grandmother's inherited house in the middle of the school year, she is anything but thrilled.

Three extraordinary classmates take the eternal outsider into their circle of friends, and an acquaintance with the attractive Gel makes her heart beat faster right on the first day of school.

Charlie Zero's Last-Ditch Attempt af Harvey Havel (Independence Books)

Dette er en e-bog, ikke en fysisk bog.

Modtager bedes skrive en anmeldelse til gengæld for denne bog.

Tilbudt af Harvey.Havel (forfatter): Please provide a review for this exceptional novel, as that is why the author is giving it away. This book is one of nineteen books the author has written, and your honest review will help him to write better.

Beskrivelse: Charlie Zero has finally arrived to where he doesn’t want to be, as he begins his journey to find the woman of his dreams by starting out at dead last on society’s totem pole. He lives in a town that expects the economy to pick up from wealthy people moving in from the nearby city, but prosperity never comes. Instead, men like Charlie Zero are stuck in low-wage, dead-end jobs that offer no hope of surviving if he ever wants to get married and live the suburban American dream.

But there’s suddenly new hope for Charlie when he meets a wealthy and successful mobster at a local bar late one night, and with his help, Charlie hopes to get the woman his in love with by associating with him. He finds out, though, that even with the mobster’s help, he is arrested, loses his job, and is generally tortured by his lot in life and the threadbare existence that comes with it. His only real choice, he decides, is to take action and kill the man who is most responsible for it all: the mobster himself.

Dette er en e-bog, ikke en fysisk bog.

Modtager bedes skrive en anmeldelse til gengæld for denne bog.

Tilbudt af Maya_Morrison (forfatter): I am looking to have early reviews posted to both/either Amazon and Goodreads.

Beskrivelse: A chance encounter. Fated paths. Unlikely allies.

When I was young, I met a boy at the waterfall on the edge of the Forbidden Forest. Our pack was prohibited from venturing there. But being the alpha's only child and a bit of a social misfit, it became my second home.

Tiam and I became best friends, experiencing each other's firsts and building an unbreakable bond. Until fate caught up with us, and I had no choice but to reject him, to protect him from myself and my pack. It was the wrong choice, leaving me more shunned and outcasted than before.

Years later, ostracized and sick of dealing with the alpha holes in Sibyl Falls, I plan my escape, and that all goes to shit when my biggest secret is uncovered. To make matters worse, young girls in our pack start disappearing, and no one takes it seriously until one of those girls turns out to be someone I care deeply about.

On the run and trying to Nancy Drew this shit, I find myself working with the most unlikely ally, Damen Elder, the once heir to the largest shifter pack in the realms. He is deadly, sexy, and wounded. Yet, we are like colliding stars, unable to resist the pull and heat of our attraction. As the danger thickens and secrets begin to unravel, I discover his fate and mine are more interlinked than I could have ever imagined.

The Ballad of Billy McFee af Ruby Mosher (Virginia Raymond Publishing)

Dette er en e-bog, ikke en fysisk bog.

Modtager bedes skrive en anmeldelse til gengæld for denne bog.

Tilbudt af RubyMosher (forfatter): I'm the author and would love to get reviews from people on LibraryThing since you definitely LOVE books! I'm giving this book away because I really want to know what YOU think. In this book, I've spent a great deal of time creating Easter Eggs, subplots, and story arcs in hopes parents and children will want to read and re-read (or sing and re-sing!) the book.

Beskrivelse: Children's picture book.  38 pages

Here is the uplifting and inspirational children’s picture book that has all the clams talking – and everyone else singing!
This is the Ballad of Billy McFee! Billy is a colorful and resourceful young fish who dreams of sailing a ship that he found stuck in the muck at the bottom of the sea. Billy sees potential in the ship while everyone else swims right past. Billy struggles to free the ship while shrugging off negative comments from onlookers (a pair of naysayer clams).  When Billy cannot move the ship by himself, he becomes a leader and builds a crew of diverse friends: a friendly shark, a big strong whale, and an intellectual crab.  Billy and his friends sing as they work, just as sailors of yore sang to synchronize their efforts.  But unlike many old sea shanties, the Ballad of Billy McFee is friendly to all sea creatures and is appropriate for people of all ages.

How will YOU tell the Ballad of Billy McFee?
The Ballad of Billy McFee is packed to the gills with character development, subplots, puns, and Easter eggs for young and old to find. For example, everyone in the story is on a journey of some kind - whether it be physical or mental, intended or unintended. Some readers will want to get out the magnifying glass and explore the covers of the books which the crab (Emma) reads on her journey of self-improvement.  Others will want to follow the antics of the naysayer clams.  And some readers (especially the singers) may want to ignore all that and just sing the ballad, glancing at the pictures and turning the pages to keep time with the rhythm.  It's all good! There is no wrong way to read or sing the Ballad of Billy McFee.  This book is all about celebrating our differences.  Through our diversity, we are stronger together!   

 How will YOU tell Billy’s uplifting story?  Some people read it like a rhyming story.  Some people sing it to the tune of the Wellerman. Some people rap it to a hip hop beat.  Some people make up their own tune.You can read it - you can sing it – whatever floats YOUR boat!

There is much more to this book than what may immediately appear.  Check out the book discussion on https://rubymosher.com

Beskrivelse: Good guy Gabe Mendes is certainly passionate. He thinks love will make his life worth living. So he’s made a deal. In exchange for access to the universe of love he agrees to slay the black ram. But soon he learns, being unlucky in love isn’t his only problem. Turns out—love isn’t what he thinks it is.

By the time Gabe stumbles across the website of the alluring, though mature, Pythia—mystic and high priestess—he’s already failed miserably in love yet again. Raised by a hardworking single mom, never having known the full truth about his father, Gabe has spent his life faithful to three beliefs: follow the rules; don’t let anyone get too close; and avoid, at all costs, being honest about how you feel—especially with yourself. If it weren’t for Gabe’s steadfast companion, a cat named Cat, he might not know love at all.

But when the enchanting red-headed priestess dangles the keys that will unlock the secret answers to the long-asked questions of love, Gabe jumps at the chance. Before he knows it, things change—and fast. The entertaining Pythia takes him on a whirlwind journey traveling the portals of time and space. She’s got him questioning everything he’s ever thought about love. And if that weren’t enough, Gabe is beginning to believe this business about the black ram might cost him everything. It might just kill him.

Wonder Valley af Rhys Stalba-Smith (Self-published)

Dette er en e-bog, ikke en fysisk bog.

Modtager bedes skrive en anmeldelse til gengæld for denne bog.

Tilbudt af Rhysman91 (forfatter): Hi there LT Readers,

My name is Rhys Stalba-Smith and I'm sure you're like me with a big stack of books to be read, so why not have more? I'm looking for readers and reviewers, but all the same I understand how busy life is, so really all that I ask is that you enjoy it. If it so moves you to review or rate, I'd be hugely appreciative.

Thanks,

Beskrivelse: It’s never just a kidnapping…

Thirty years is a long time to wait for truth.
A longer time to run.
But thirty bodies are a lot to grieve for, and for the town of Nowhey, home to the infamous Wonder Valley Massacre of the sixties, the waiting is about to end.

In the third novel of the State of Affairs series, we again leave the city for wide haunting spaces of South Australia. Where everyone knows everyone and knows what’s going on. Or at least they think so.

That is until one of their own ends up dead, an apparent suicide, that once the digging begins becomes more sinister. For ex-detective Will Davidson, it’s been years since he investigated anything other than the emptiness of a strong bottle of liquor. But then this isn’t just another investigation, this was his father. And he was working on something big, something dangerous. Something with hands all the way back to Will’s childhood, when the massacre was fresh on the town’s mind and he only knew one thing, that he was leaving Nowhey for good.

Wonder Valley is an un-put-downable thriller that will leave you gasping for breath. Crime has never been this close to home, or this dangerous, so grab the page-turner before it gets buried along with the bodies...

Beskrivelse: Even the good are bad...

Some days Charlie’s trying to recover his life after a terrible accident...
Some days Charlie forgets that his legs don’t work because of the crash...
Some days the bodies Charlie finds are in his past...
Some days the bodies Charlie saves were already gone...
The constant is the killer taunting him. Calling Charlie when they please, making him play the game. Because the killer knows Charlie. Knows that even the good are bad. More importantly, knows what he did...

A killer is on the loose and the bodies are mounting. For Charlie Gardner, despite his best efforts to live a normal life as a journalist, will find himself being pulled deeper into the killer’s grasp.

The much anticipated sophomore novel from Rhys Stalba-Smith visits again the landscapes of Australia, but this time the murder mystery is in the city of Adelaide. From the dark nights of fear, to the boiling troubles of the day, this psychological thriller is a page turner not to be missed!

Beskrivelse: All they have to do is leave the beach...

Six years ago Annie lost her husband in a motorcycle accident. Six days ago her and the kids were preparing to go camping on the Stretch. Six hours ago they decided to go hiking in the sand hills. Six minutes ago they found an old shack with a body inside. Six seconds ago the man woke up and told her to take the suitcase and run.

Alone with her family on the 150 kilometre stretch of beach in the Coorong National Park, Annie stumbles upon a secret, a dangerous wish. If they can escape the park their lives will be changed forever, but they're not the only ones on it...

The debut work of Rhys Stalba-Smith, The Stretch is an edge of the seat thriller set on the turbulent landscape of the South Australian coast. With plenty of action and suspense, along with the boiling sun and vast open sands, you'll need a drink to keep cool while you read on. The land Down Under just became a lot more dangerous.

Firebird Rising: The Gray Dynasty Book 1 af A. S. Marshall

Dette er en e-bog, ikke en fysisk bog.

Modtager bedes skrive en anmeldelse til gengæld for denne bog.

Tilbudt af asmarshall (forfatter): Your review matters. In exchange for this book, kindly provide an honest review on either Amazon or Goodreads on or after December 20, 2021 when the book officially goes live.

Beskrivelse: “…a heat began coursing through her. Its warmth enveloped her being, sending a rush of blood through every vein in her body as it settled between her palms, pulsating in fiery intensity. A wicked smile spread across her lips. Finally, debts have come due. It paid to be a Gray.”

A powerful mafia dynasty. Ancient magic. A fiery female lead.

The gift of fire burns within Celia Gray, a feisty young woman who considers herself ahead of her time. She was born to be in the family business––an ancient mafia dynasty––if only her father would allow it. Finding herself caught between the life society demands of a woman and the life she craves, Celia is fighting the losing battle for the right to choose her own destiny.

Harold Gray is the boss of the Gray family and the head of the five “gifted” families of Fauland. A powerful man with a commanding presence, he believes his daughters would be better off married and living a comfortable life in the country, away from the dealings of the business. But Celia, not one to give up without a fight, has other ideas.

To claim her rightful place beside her father and show him how capable she really is, she concocts a scheme to take on a local gangster who duped him. When plans go awry and lives are lost, Celia must confront how far she's willing to go to get what she wants.

With a cast of captivating characters, a forbidden romance and deadly consequences, Firebird Rising is a page-turner that you won’t be able to put down.

The Fabric Over the Moon af Ferran Plana

Modtager bedes skrive en anmeldelse til gengæld for denne bog.

Tilbudt af fplana (forfatter): Dear reader, thank you for picking my book. Please consider leaving a review in Amazon and Goodreads.

Beskrivelse: Stories come alive at night.

They are whispered around dying campfires, by quiet bedsides, under deformed old trees.

They might get interrupted by the howling wind, inaudible gasps, or nervous comments, only to be continued fervently once the dust settles again.

Why did the girl visit the eerie village? What did the gypsy’s words mean? Can the discovery of a new flower change the world?

Stories are supposed to end but they never do.

They leave you wondering and longing for more. They live on in your mind, in corners with cobwebs and memories you’ve been suppressing, in recurring daydreams you have while waiting in long lines. They fester and thrive there. They spiral and soar. You wish they would die but they cannot anymore.

Once you blow breath into a story, it instantly becomes yours...

Tilbudt af AleyaAduruvil (forfatter): This book will, without doubt, scratch your itch for a well-written shifter romance with a great plot, likeable characters, an amazing love track, and lots of steam! I hope you love it! Due to the situations and language used, I recommend that you are 18+

Beskrivelse: They told me I wasn’t an orphan. They said I finally have a family. Then my fated mate rejected me, and the life I had always wanted burned in front of my eyes.
I can only blame myself for feeling hope even after being continuously betrayed and let down, right?
Wrong. In this hidden world where magic, gods, and all kinds of shifters exist, the wolves who cast me away have an enemy. With roars that chill my spine, the lions find me and take me away.
They offer me revenge, but how do I know I can trust them?
Among all this mess, a golden-haired, blue-eyed, sexy-as-hell young lion says he despises me for who I am, but looks at me in ways that make my heart hammer in my ears.
I have to make a choice, and time is running out. Do I ignore the way I'm being pulled toward this dark and dangerous lion prince? Or do I give in...and risk being betrayed for the last time?
...
'Castaway' is a steamy, enemies-to-lovers shifter romance that does not end on a major cliffhanger. It is perfect for readers of Jaymin Eve(Shadow Beast Shifters) and Elizabeth Briggs(Zodiac Wolves).

Riddles Island af Jan E. Pat (Black Eye Press)

Dette er en e-bog, ikke en fysisk bog.

Modtager bedes skrive en anmeldelse til gengæld for denne bog.

Tilbudt af JanEPat (forfatter): I'm the author, Jan E. Pat, a pen name to keep my gender, age, and sexuality unknown and neutral. The truth might surprise you!
If you're in the USA and really like a hard copy and promise to read it and review it on Amazon if you like it, I'll mail you a paperback copy.

Beskrivelse: Riddles Island is a post-gender visionary love and adventure story set in 2111, where characters use Newspeak – author invented non-binary pronouns and other words.
Rory, a Ridlet (resident of Riddles Island), meets Max, a macho hillbilly pirate who suggests that Rory give up D2 – Daily Dose – a wonder drug that influences behavior and mood, neutralizes estrogen and testosterone and provides immunizations. When Rory impulsively decides to stop taking D2, mer (him/her) partner Dylan objects, and their focus shifts dramatically.

Ridlets choose to live in their self-sufficient secure community off the coast of what used to be Maine, without computers, cell phones, children, running water and electricity. They use Newspeak’s gender-neutral pronouns, e for he/she, mer for him/her, and mers for his/hers throughout the story, along with other words.

The plot follows Rory and Dylan through a series of life-changing events on the island and when they journey to the chaos of the mainland. Despite climate change, the collapse of central governments and multi-national companies, Riddles Island and other independent villages, called citadels, craft meaningful lives.

The non-binary Ridlets have adopted novel ways to use energy, pharmaceuticals, technology and transportation along with new attitudes towards sex, reproduction and clothing.

Genetic engineering has homogenized ethnicity and race, thus eliminating racial tension. Food, farming and clean water have taken on premium value. Fresh clean drinking water provides Ridlets' trading power and security against outside threats.

This subjective post-gender tale belongs on a shelf with 1984, Brave New World, Animal Farm, The Giver, Handmaid's Tale, and Octavia Butler’s cautionary stories. The characters create lives with purpose and community despite pandemics and fallout from nuclear bombs. Far from a disturbing dystopia, Riddles Island offers hope and a vision of the future evolved from today’s realities. People in 2111 who can afford it, live together peacefully in small communities and engage in trade, reproduction, love, agriculture, education and cultural activities. Ridlets strive to live simply, respect the environment, eschew technology except when necessary, govern democratically, grow their own food and rely on bicycles for on-island transportation.

Geneering (genetic engineering) creates racial, gender and ethnic homogeneity of the characters, and eliminates mutations as well as unnecessary labels, fears, discrimination, hatred and prejudice. People are free to be who they choose, without restrictive expectations based on appearance.
Most of the characters use Newspeak throughout the book as alternatives to standard gender-specific English. Readers should expect to adapt to Newspeak throughout the text and refer the glossary provided in the front of the book and at the book’s website.

Beskrivelse: Carter Davison has time on his hands, a few bob in his pocket, and a burning desire to improve the lives of his chums. Whether they like it or not!

He is fascinated by the idea of the “six degrees of separation”. So he initiates a strategy.

What begins as a “what if I did this, this and this” series of casual wonderings is implemented one small step at a time.

Facebook it is. Carter is a watcher. A flaneur. An observer of 21st century human interaction in microcosm.

A selection is made. Five pals who, he feels, could do with a surreptitious helping hand. One at a time, Carter involves them in a series of devious scenarios.

But the road to Hell is, as we know, paved with good intentions. The road to heaven is much the same. If only Carter knew it.

The Amnesic Betrayal af Dr Jay

Dette er en e-bog, ikke en fysisk bog.

Modtager bedes skrive en anmeldelse til gengæld for denne bog.

Tilbudt af Mylibrevs (forlægger): This book is available as ebook only in epub, mobi and PDF formats.

I hope you enjoy this book and post a review on Amazon.

Beskrivelse: The Amnesic Betrayal deals with the agony of a husband, Christopher Hall, whose wife Susan forgets him, their son Adam and their daughter Meryl completely. To add insult to injury, Susan starts a romantic relationship with Joseph Connolly, a resident in the nursing home where both of them are being looked after because of their memory loss. Adam, a recovering drug addict, swears that he will certainly put a stop to the unholy liaison. Jack, Joe Connolly’s son, argues that his father should be allowed to continue his new found romance unimpeded, without any interference from anybody. He asks, ’when does the right of an individual with lack of memory cease to exist and the wilful gratification of the relatives take over?’ The moral and ethical connotations are enormous.

The incident at the traffic lights, the goings on in the mysterious ‘green room’, the plot of a conniving, greedy, ex-girlfriend, the opportunism of a scheming ‘home- help’ and the awful consequences of Ketamine drug abuse will take you through the pages of this book to a climax which is as dramatic as is unexpected.

1984, an ill-advised journey? af Colette Nicolle

Dette er en e-bog, ikke en fysisk bog.

Modtager bedes skrive en anmeldelse til gengæld for denne bog.

Tilbudt af Mylibrevs (forlægger): This book is available as ebook only in epub, mobi and PDF formats.

I hope you enjoy this book and post a review on Amazon.

Beskrivelse: Join the Nicolle family on a road trip from Irbid, Jordan, to London in a Fiat Panda. Colette was five months pregnant and their son Freddie was under two years old, which led to certain not entirely unexpected difficulties along the way, as well as significantly different priorities.
The three-week journey in the heat of summer in 1984 is told through the separate, and at that time private, diaries of David and Colette Nicolle. As the diary entries are presented separately, the reader can compare these conflicting day by day stresses, and how or if they were resolved.
Here we should also note that David and Colette remain happily married. Follow a range of interests from medieval art and architecture to the urgent search for disposable nappies, not to mention finding themselves unexpectedly related by marriage to French Resistance heroes.
The authors also hope to reassure new or soon-to-be parents that exciting lives can continue after giving birth.

Foweraker's Ricardian Riddle af John Benedict

Dette er en e-bog, ikke en fysisk bog.

Modtager bedes skrive en anmeldelse til gengæld for denne bog.

Tilbudt af Mylibrevs (forlægger): This book is available as ebook only in epub, mobi and PDF formats.

I hope you enjoy this book and post a review on Amazon.

Beskrivelse: Pre-World War II Cambridge. The elderly Master of St. John’s, mediaevalist Professor Morecote, has been murdered - stabbed in the back in his college rooms.

Who murdered him and why? Was it the American students who feared being sent down for night-climbing? Or could it be a resentful colleague? Alternatively, was it connected with the discovery of artefacts - now missing - relating to the origins of the college and to its founder, Lady Margaret Beaufort, mother of Henry VII?

These artifacts alone would be almost priceless, but amongst them was a document, possibly written by Sir John Buck, historian and Master of the Revels in the Jacobean period. That document blamed Margaret Beaufort, and not Richard III, for the disappearance of the Princes in the Tower. This could, in the wrong hands, be political dynamite.

Scotland Yard’s Chief Inspector Foweraker and his team must determine the guilty parties and join up the loose ends, both current and historical.

Dette er en e-bog, ikke en fysisk bog.

Modtager bedes skrive en anmeldelse til gengæld for denne bog.

Tilbudt af Unsolicitedpress (forlægger): Ebook. Will provide accessible ebook file.

Beskrivelse: As your family is bright, so is it dark. Sure, the love and laughter of family lingers in your heart, yet it’s the secrets, pranks, and punishments that haunt your soul. The mothers, fathers, daughters, and sons in Functional Families all seek only love to cure their familial ills, but they often go about it in strange ways. To come to terms with his father’s past and encroaching dementia, Reynold Vasquez takes his father out for one last fancy dinner in “Bird Dog,” while in “Bat Out of Hell,” Margaret abandons her mother at a Tijuana gas station hoping to move on with her life. In “My First War,” young cadet Gilbert Fernandez goes AWOL from a pretend battlefield to be with his pregnant girlfriend on the verge of an abortion, and in “Wheel of Fortune,” Hillary Clinton visits a homegirl fortune teller in Santa Fe, New Mexico. In the end, these disparate souls resolve their desperate actions to return to their nuclei, the only places they can call home.

RULES OF FALLING af Leslie Tall Manning (Leslie Tall Manning)

Dette er en e-bog, ikke en fysisk bog.

Modtager bedes skrive en anmeldelse til gengæld for denne bog.

Tilbudt af LTManning (forfatter): RULES OF FALLING, my new Young Adult novel, combines an edgy plotline with multi-faceted characters. While the story's illicit affair offers intrigue, a deeper theme of finding one’s bravery lies at the heart. The target market is girls between the ages of 16 and 18, so please keep this in mind while reading.

My goal is to gain some thoughtful and well-written reviews. A blurb taken from one of these reviews could be added to the book's cover.

RULES OF FALLING is my sixth published novel. My writing awards include the Sarton Women’s Literary Award; North Carolina Author Project Award; Self-e Library Journal Selection; International Book Award Finalist; Taleflick Road to Development Finalist; Indie Brag Medallion; Story Monsters Certificate of Excellence; and the Firebird Literary Fiction Award.

Beskrivelse: Erica O’Donnell is hardly the quintessential high school senior. She doesn’t have a driver’s license. She’s never been to a concert. Sports are out of the question. She doesn’t own a pair of heels. No boy has ever asked her out. All of this for good reason: Erica faints. A lot. And at the most inconvenient times.

Chronic fainting, also known as syncope, keeps Erica on the sidelines as the odd-girl out. Luckily, Lindsay Bennett hovers nearby to catch Erica each time she nose-dives to the floor. Lindsay isn’t only Erica’s best friend—for four years she’s been her savior.

But things are about to change.

When Lindsay breaks up with her boyfriend Adam to pursue a married man, Erica is intrigued. But as Lindsay’s relationship intensifies, Erica finds her own world spinning out of control: from covering up her friend’s affair, to hiding her feelings for Adam, to casting suspicion when a string of arson fires sweeps through the town.

Gradually peeling away layers of deception from those she trusts the most, Erica must decide how far she is willing to go to uncover truths—and how many people will get burned in the process.

It would really help me out and I would like to thank you in advance. I hope you enjoy!

The format given out will be a pdf file.

You can find me on social media or at www.sarahickesart.com.

I have the following links listed below to Amazon and Goodreads for the review, as my book is also listed on both, as well as this site.

Amazon:https://www.amazon.com/Serpents-Star-M...

Goodreads:https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/59...

Beskrivelse: In the late 1880s, Murial Robertson has the unusual job of being a part of her father’s security detail.

When an explosion destroys part of the town, toxic secrets are revealed, and a man with a well groomed mustache kidnaps her, all the pieces tie back to a death from three years ago. Murial has been dreaming of freedom from fear and her father’s clutches, but will the past’s vengeance crush her spirit before she has a chance to do so?

The Road to Vermilion Lake af Vic Cavalli (Harvard Square Editions)

Dette er en e-bog, ikke en fysisk bog.

Modtager bedes skrive en anmeldelse til gengæld for denne bog.

Tilbudt af VicCavalli (forfatter): If you are interested in eco-fiction, request an eBook copy of The Road to Vermilion Lake. The author will send PDF files directly to the individuals selected by LibraryThing.

Beskrivelse: "The novel tells the story of . . . Thomas Neal Tems, a blaster's assistant and first-aid attendant who lives and works on a construction site beside a glorious, remote lake. The site is being developed by a Swiss company into an ecologically friendly village, and Thomas begins a romance with the talented and imaginative architect who designed the site, a devout Catholic. The world that the characters must navigate, however, is decidedly not a romantic one. It is marked by painful past experiences, dysfunctional families, tragic accidents, alcoholism, and drug overdoses, all of which seem to derive from an inability to reach beyond the superficiality of existence. And yet, this is a world of second chances, for those who desire to change their imaginative perspective, to seek a sense of depth and enchantment that is deeply embedded in the tangible world, particularly in the body and in the natural world, as well as in the creative world of contemplative thought."

Tilbudt af donderoso (forfatter): I'm requesting reviews for this book but they are not necessary. However, a review would be nice. Thanks.

Beskrivelse: Two weeks have passed since the events of the Hangman Returns. Jericho Caine and Father Tom Padilla, the Death Brothers, return to The Reefs in the Gulf of Mexico to settle a score with the vampire sirens. However, a female angel, Sariel, with romantic intentions toward Jericho, plans to separate the brothers and seduce the slayer. Sariel strikes a deal with the Hangman to distract the brothers by casting a spell that resurrects vanquished supernatural beings in New York.

Here is a Body af Basma Abdel Aziz (Hoopoe, an imprint of the American University in Cairo Press)

Dette er en e-bog, ikke en fysisk bog.

Modtager bedes skrive en anmeldelse til gengæld for denne bog.

Tilbudt af sueostfield (forlægger): Read and recommend this powerful novel. Thank you!

Beskrivelse: In this follow-up to her PEN Award-winning novel, The Queue, an electrifying new voice in Arab women’s fiction passionately brings to life the machinations of state oppression

Mysterious men are rounding up street children and enrolling them in a so-called “rehabilitation program,” designed to indoctrinate them for the military-backed regime’s imminent crackdown on its opponents. Across town, thousands of protesters encamp in a city square demanding the return of the recently deposed president.

Reminiscent of recent clashes in Egypt and reflective of political movements worldwide where civilians face off against state power, Abdel Aziz deftly illustrates the universal human struggles between resisting and succumbing to an oppressive regime.

Here Is A Body is a courageous and powerful depiction of the state cooptation of human bodies, the dehumanization of marginalized groups, and the use of inflammatory religious rhetoric to manipulate a narrative.

"An unflinching and deeply humane masterwork by a writer of astounding talent and courage."—Omar El Akkad, author of What Strange Paradise 

"Haunting . . . bracing . . . This potent novel about powerful regimes and their constant rhetoric is nonetheless hopeful about powerless voices within those regimes who recognize their own manipulation. Here is a Body handles religion, politics, community, and family with provocative vitality."—Foreword Reviews

"A disturbing but vital read"—Arab News

Reviews for The Queue:

“The Queue...has drawn comparisons to Western classics like George Orwell’s 1984 and The Trial by Franz Kafka. It represents a new wave of dystopian and surrealist fiction from Middle Eastern writers who are grappling with the chaotic aftermath and stinging disappointments of the Arab Spring.”—The New York Times

“An effective critique of authoritarianism...People...will always find a way to control other people in one way or another, should it suit them. Perhaps with the publication of The Queue, the lesson will begin to finally sink in.” —NPR

“Full of mysterious and troubling detail...Abdel Aziz delivers a striking portrait of an authority that claims all power while rejecting all responsibility, that forces people to hear and speak untruths and to embrace their own oppression.”—The Nation

“Basma Abdel Aziz’s novel is not simply an exegesis on the state of her homeland, but a much more universal evocation of the relationships between hegemonic power and grassroots dissent. It feels both fitting and faintly tragic that she had to resort to the literature of dark fantasy to convey it.” —Toronto Globe and Mail

“Although this is a novel, if you follow events in today’s Egypt, it’s not far from the truth. A brave effort.” —New York Post

"The Queue was written before the military coup that pub Abdel Fattah al-Sisi in power, but it has proved prophetic...This is a study of totalitarian logic with the plainness of a Kafka parable.”—Harper's

“Abdel Aziz illustrates how life in an authoritarian state is normalized not just by the government, but by the people.”—Think Progress

“Offers a window into how the revolution failed...underlining, above all, the solidarities and divisions oppression creates, even as it allows for the stories of people who are otherwise often overlooked to be told...[The Queue] points to the errors in thinking that make change impossible.” —Music & Literature

“Weird and wild...a Kafkaesque tale of a modern Egypt.” —BookRiot

“Equal parts dystopia, satire, and allegory...A distinctly Egyptian version of its Orwellian counterpart, much more real and all the more absurd for it...The nature of truth, its official invocations, its power and its danger, lies at the heart of this work.”—Los Angeles Review of Books

“[Abdel Aziz] brings her careful observations of power, pain and Egyptian society to a remarkable debut.”—Qantara

“An Orwellian tale about life in a Middle Eastern country after a series of unsuccessful protests.” —Men's Journal

“[A] trenchant political fantasy...Mahfouz meets Orwell, with a particularly interesting look at the lives of Egyptian women from a variety of class backgrounds." —The Forward

“One of the most exciting post-Revolution novels written in Egypt.” —The New Inquiry

“The sense of total repression that people feel from authoritative states is chillingly detailed...It seems hugely significant...that it’s a woman who has written this book, dared to point her finger in the eyes of authority in spite of what...are very genuine threats to her own well-being.”—Counterpunch

“Insightful, multilayered.”—ArabLit

“Timely.” —SF Signal

“The Queue is the world we live in without letting ourselves to know it…the most chilling aspect of this novel is how normal it all feels…” —Okayafrica

“[Abdel Aziz's] characters are multi-faceted...The sense of Egypt wafts through the pages with mint tea, cafes, heat and vivacious personalities.”—Arab News

“A surreal version of modern-day Egypt.” —Kirkus

“An arresting portrayal of totalitarian control.” —Library Journal

“Captures a sense of futility and meaninglessness...Aziz ultimately suggests the worst while leaving the smallest space for hopeful interpretation, a fitting metaphor for Egypt after the Arab Spring.” —Publishers Weekly

“Abdel Aziz is redefining Arabic women’s literature.” —Essam Zakaria, El-Fagr

“[The Queue] skillfully paints the image of an authority with the power to turn human beings into indistinguishable copies of one another. Written with satire, the novel moves between dystopia and reality—or a world that seems like reality. With her first novel, Abdel Aziz has clearly secured an important position on the map of contemporary literature in the Arab world.” —Al-Mogaz

“Abdel Aziz creates a world parallel to the one in which we live, one where the characters reveal to us the nature of human beings and the choices they make in life.” —Al-Itihad

The Speakeasy Murders af Patricia M. Muhammad (Patricia M. Muhammad)

Dette er en e-bog, ikke en fysisk bog.

Modtager bedes skrive en anmeldelse til gengæld for denne bog.

Tilbudt af pmmuhammad (forfatter): To celebrate the completion of my 22nd novel, I am giving away 12 free copies of my first mystery/detective novel, The Speakeasy Murders! Only 12 copies available.

The author requests an honest review in exchange for the free copy. If inclined, please post review on Goodreads and LibraryThing.

Beskrivelse: CONTENT WARNING: This book is a work of fiction. However, the author intended to create characters and settings historically accurate to the era it takes place in, the racially tumultuous 1920s. Certain terms used as racial descriptions now considered archaic, outdated or even offensive are used to reflect the past usage by both black and white Americans of that era. Particular themes regarding race, references to certain crimes such as murder and sexual assault are included as part of the fictional plot. The author provides this content description for any potential reader who may consider any of these subject matters or references too sensitive to consider.

It is the roaring 1920s in the city of Chicago. Helen Williams is an astute, but bashful upper class coloured detective. Helen obtained her position through a recommendation from her father after delaying an opportunity to attend Fisk University. Her mother spoke against Helen accepting the job. Williams assumed it because at the time, a young, refined, coloured woman being a detective was 'unladylike.' Her go to instrument is an heirloom magnifier she inherited from her hard working and well educated grandfather. Though some of her co-workers take some time to become accustomed to her quirks, she is admired for her detail, accepted and often called upon her colleagues for her insight. Williams has only heard of one other female coloured detective whom she never met. Helen is called in one night to help investigate some peculiar murders in which a field is often used and she now believes is the criminal mastermind's dumping ground. After a couple of days of discussing similar cases with her colleagues, Helen concludes that the executioner is a serial killer who also orders the killings. These activities stem from an underground nightclub. A group of criminals throw a brick into the station house to warn the officers to keep their investigations to crimes above ground. Lieutenant Henry Johnson orders the station on lockdown. After he lifts the lockdown, Johnson partners Williams with Patterson undercover to further investigate murders at the speakeasy. Stephen introduces Helen to his sister Ruby to help her undergo her transformation. Williams now appears as a flapper with her station house brother, Stephen accompanying her. She is surrounded by the unfamiliar, jazz music, alcoholic beverages, and the wildest dance crazes. Williams reminds herself to focus on the investigation. One night at the speakeasy, Helen is assaulted and nearly raped by a Negro male in one of the bigger rooms to the left of the main floor. His African male accomplice waits at the threshold of the room's door to make sure the job is done. She was able to maneuver and defend herself until Stephen nearly pummels him. Thaddeus sees the African man run and trips him, upon impact his skull is split on nails of floorboards. Helen runs out. Thaddeus carries her away and brings her to his flat. She is shy and cautious. The Englishman is protective of her. They increase in natural affection towards one another. The Englishman proposes to Helen and she accepts. One night at the speakeasy, Helen discovers a secret stairwell. It would be the gateway which leads her to solve the murders. Helen and Thaddeus will finally have the peace they earned, and the life destined for them to have—with each other.

Modtager bedes skrive en anmeldelse til gengæld for denne bog.

Tilbudt af AmandaKerr (agent): We are giving away ecopies of A Gentleman for Christmas with the hopes of getting more reviews and exposure.

Beskrivelse: Stir-it-up-Sunday only happens once a year, but a grandmother’s Christmas pudding doesn’t tempt Cecily’s appetite half as much as an appealing neighbor. Her deepest secret is safe until she whispers sugar plum nothings in her sleep, and awkwardly, someone overhears. A relationship doesn’t seem possible, but when it becomes apparent that their feelings are mutual, it’s not only class and social status hindering a relationship, but also one stubborn English father.

Logan Campbell, a skilled yet lowly veterinary surgeon, has a talent as an animal whisperer. Popular with the farmers and one English lady, his sentiments can’t administer common sense to the parental obstacle standing in his way. He’s willing to risk it all to secure his heart’s desire, even if it means singing in the church choir. But when a racehorse becomes seriously ill, the ensuing challenge tests his patience and skill. He’ll have to pull out all the stops to secure their future.

Does a veterinary surgeon have the practical knowledge to prevent a tragedy? Will a father accept his daughter’s heartfelt wishes? A Christmas carol and a little lady luck could make this season brighter.

Tilbudt af AmandaKerr (agent): We are giving away ecopies of The Academy Saga, Book One in hopes of getting more reviews and exposure.

Beskrivelse: My mother always taught me to trust my instinct.

And now it’s telling me those two hot guys, sitting nonchalantly in that diner booth, have a hidden agenda. What are they even doing in this town that doesn’t make a dot on the map? And why are they giving me such a hard time?

I already know that pretty and poor is a bad combination; it just seems to unleash the monster in some people. But I grew up strong, resourceful, and with a fierce pride that makes me fight back. Even when I’m outclassed.

From the moment Ranger stared right through me, I know I’ve seen those icy eyes before. And the moment I peer into Pete’s deep brown eyes I know I’m done for. But he just happens to be a cadet from that “elite” academy that’s after my gifted little brother. Coincidence? Mama said there’s no such thing, and to never let Daddy sign us up for special schools. The Academy will stop at nothing to get what they want. And for some inexplicable reason they want us. But these elite cadets have finally met their match.

Because when all you have in the world is your family, you’ll do whatever it takes to save them.

Tilbudt af AmandaKerr (agent): We are offering ecopies of Harry Harambee's Kenyan Sundowner: A Novel with the hopes of getting reviews and exposure for the book.

Beskrivelse: Awarded So Cal Publicists Best Literary Fiction, Best Indie 100, NYC Big Book Silver, NABE Pinnacle Best Literary Fiction, FAPA President's Bronze Adult Fiction.

Intrigue on the white sands of the Indian Ocean.

Aldo Barbieri, a slick Italian tour operator, convinces Harry to join a group of adventuresome “voluntourists.” In a resort town on the Indian Ocean, Harry doesn’t find the promised excitement with local ladies. But in the supermarket he meets Esther Mwemba, a demure widow who works as a bookkeeper. The attraction is strong and mutual, but Harry gets worried when he finds out that Esther and Aldo have a history. They introduce him to Victor Skebelsky, rumored to be the meanest man in town. Skebelsky has a plan to convert his grand colonial home and residential compound into a rehab center – as a tax dodge. The scheme calls for Harry to head up the charity. He could live like a wealthy diplomat and it won’t cost him a shilling! Harry has to come to terms with questions at the heart of his character: Is corruption a fact of life everywhere? Is all love transactional? Harry Harambee’s Kenyan Sundowner is an emotional story of expat intrigue in Africa, reminiscent of The Heart of the Matter by Graham Greene and The Constant Gardener by John le Carré.

Journeys: the Archers of Saint Sebastian af Jeanne Roland (Nepenthe Press)

Modtager bedes skrive en anmeldelse til gengæld for denne bog.

Tilbudt af JeanneRoland (forfatter): I'm giving away 5 signed copies of my debut romantic historical fiction saga set in Medieval Belgium, Journeys: the Archers of Saint Sebastian.

Beskrivelse: It’s the 14th century, and the longbow is king. But in the northern European principality of Ardennes, archery isn’t just the nation’s defense. It’s the national obsession.

MEET THE JOURNEYS
12 young Journeyman archers, the best in the country
2 years of public competitions, in which looks count almost as much as ability
6 will win a coveted membership in the Archers’ Guild of St. Sebastian
1 will become the prince’s new Guardsman

MEET MARIEKE
15-year-old Marieke is as obsessed with St. Sebastian’s as everyone else in Ardennes. Only it’s the middle ages, and girls just don’t become elite archers. Except Marieke's prospects as a girl aren't promising either, after a well-timed kick from a mule has left her with a face that’s badly scarred and ruined for marriage. But when circumstances force her to leave her old life behind and flee to the guild for refuge, there are only two things Marieke really knows about the place. One is that a mysterious accident ended her own father’s time as a Journey. The other?
There are no women allowed inside St. Sebastian’s.
Marieke knows disguising herself as a boy and infiltrating the guild means embarking on a dangerous deception. But it may be her only chance to find out the truth about her father’s past and to stop a murderous plot from coming to fruition. When the dashing young Journeyman Tristan takes her under his wing as his squire, she’s got to stay – at least long enough to help him beat out his brutal arch-rival to win the competitions.
Keeping her identity a secret will be hard. Living in close quarters with a pack of gorgeous boys? That will be harder still. But the hardest thing of all will be keeping the vow she makes for herself: to see Tristan become the next Guardsman, without ever letting him find out she’s a girl - a girl, who loves him.

Part Robin Hood and part Princess Bride, with a pinch of Mulan and a dash of Cyrano de Bergerac in the mix, The Archers of St. Sebastian I: Journeys is a humorous action and adventure saga inspired by late medieval/early Renaissance Belgium and packed with romance, wit, and longbow archery. Perfect for adults who love young adult themes and young adults looking for an immersive, character-driven read, Journeys is an escape into the past that reads more like romantic historical fantasy than pure historical fiction.

Beskrivelse: This book is being given away in exchange for a fair review on Librarything.
The experiences of an Asian-American woman in the hallowed halls of Yale University’s School of Medicine are depicted in this fictional story. Mary Enji Scott, an innocent woman who graduates with a Ph.D. in a scientific field is hired by a department in the School of Medicine at Yale. Unknown to her, a rogue team of FBI agents are hired to make her die out of Yale, by either ruining her career, and finally killing her off. She becomes a romantic interest of an English MI5 agent, Andrew Michaels, who goes through intimidation when he tries to keep watch over Mary. The involvement of the Japanese Mafia, the Yakuza, and other foreign police organizations provide interest in Mary Enji Scott’s real identity. The story is a mixture of foreign espionage, with the budding romance between Mary and Andrew in its midst. Mary Faderan provides a believable picture of the life of an Asian American woman in a very elite environment.

Mo deals with the viscous realities of addiction to sex and drugs with very little guidance. You can use his failures as stepping stones to success. You can use his story to motivate you while at your lowest.

What do you do when you face adversity? How do you react to controversary? How do you respond to new responsibility?

Life is thrown at Mo fast when he returns home after being discharged from the Navy.
