>Okay, masses, listen up!
I’m going to showcase two books on my blog, mainly because I think you deserve a good read, and in my opinion, these won’t let you down.
Today’s book is Gods In Alabama by Joshilyn Jackson. This book is not my usual read. I’m all about the romance, and this book isn’t, but it has romantic elements and I’m cool with that.
I was standing in a Borders perusing covers and back cover blurbs, when my DH handed GIA to me and said that one sounded good. From the moment I read the blurb, I knew I had to read this book. The writer’s voice and character attitude came through so clearly that I wanted to sit right down in the bookstore and devour it.
Unfortunately, my hubby’s a get-it-and-go type shopper. So, we purchased and left. That was around the first of the year and GIA was in hardback at the time. I couldn’t afford that on my book-addicted habit. Over the next few weeks, I discovered that the paperback wouldn’t be out until June. Ack!
I looked at my TBR pile and realized I could easily find plenty to read until the paperback release. I preordered the book online, posted myself a reminder and waited. June came. No e-mail appeared in my Inbox to tell me the book had arrived. Since a trip to Borders wasn’t in the cards that week, I bought it online and had it within my hands in a few days.
I read it – or rather devoured it – in one sitting. Does that tell you anything? Hey, it’s a 306-page trade paperback. I couldn’t put it down, was almost late for a doctor’s appointment because I HAD to get to The End before leaving the house.
Oh, the twists, the turns, the surprises, and at times the sheer laugh-out-loud humor! Ms. Jackson knows the south and southerners, no doubt. And to her I say a heartfelt, “Wow!” I haven’t enjoyed a book this much in ages. So much so, her newest release, Between, Georgia is now on my “must buy” list.
Find Gods In Alabama. Read it. You won’t be sorry.
