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!”
