Happy 4th of July my friends and happy belated Canada Day to my fellow Canadians! I met a ton of Canadians at Book Bash, and had my own family down from Canada “book bashing” with us. What FUN!
Okay so right now I’m still in “relax” mode and reading (it’s pouring rain outside – no fireworks for us), and I’m a bit sick. One thing about large crowds is we share everything. Enthusiasm, pictures, and germs! Nothing better than reading when I feel this way, ’cause everyone (*ahem* the husband) leaves me alone.
Hey!! Do you guys wanna read with me, today? This one was recommended a day ago, and the premise alone had me scrambling to download the sample immediately, and the price had me bypassing the sample altogether. It’s now mine! But I warn you, while it is right up my dark alley, this book is not for everyone.
Kandace: Maryse… You have to checkout ‘Escape From Paradise’ by Gwendolyn Field. A bunch of us read it this week and LOVED it. It is a dark read about a girl who gets kidnapped (we know you’re a sucker for a good kidnapping story). I would rate 5++++ stars. Definitely in my top 3 for 2013.
Maryse’s Book Blog: Ohhhhhhh!!!! Kandace!! I’m going to Amazon right now to get it.
Adele: Based on Kandace’s recommendation I downloaded this earlier today, and OMG, she was spot on! I could NOT put it down despite the million other things I had to do! Definitely not for the faint of heart, it deals with some dark subject matter. Stand alone, with its own version of HEA.
Lori: Oh yes Maryse! It’s right up your alley! So intense, it’s so good!
Kandace: Gah! I’m in serious book love. I haven’t been this excited about a book in a long time.
Julie: Yes, Maryse, you must read it, very good!!
Alexandra: Goodbye my social life….
LOL Alexandra. You ‘n me both. I’m actually thankful there are no fireworks parties for me tonight as that means I can indulge.
So yep, I’ve taste-tested it already and it’s a dark kidnap-y story, and just what I’m looking for, for that adrenaline surge. Adrenaline was coursing through me all weekend, but it’s Thursday now, and I could use another jolt. I’m at 30% and I can confirm that this is a very uncomfortable read. Situations… just … the whole shebang. Good so far, and I’m hoping for “OMG GREAT!”
