I am happy to be participating in the latest blog hop hosted by I am a Reader, Not a Writer and Val at Stuck in Books. I am offering a $25 Amazon Gift Card so that you can buy either your own hardcover, a couple of paper back books, or several e-books.
I love it when I am reading a book that is so good that I lose all track of time and forget what’s going on around me. I’ve even burned dinner a few times because I’ve been stuck in a good book. I will give you suggestions of some of my favorite books that I have gotten “stuck” in lately. Then I invite you to scroll down and enter the giveaway.
1. Literary Fiction: The Naïve Guys by Harry Patz
I just finished this book a few weeks ago and it was funny and poignant at the same time. I would classify THE NAIVE GUYS not just as literary fiction, but also as historical fiction because of its accurate depiction of life in the early 90’s in New York. Mark, the main character, is trying to figure out his life and career now that the easy days of college are behind him. Click here for my full review
2. Historical Fiction: Madame Picasso by Anne Girard
Ever since I read this book I have been fascinated with the works of Picasso. This book is told from the point of view of one of his lovers, Eva Gouel. This book is about love, inspiration, history and art. If you like a Parisian setting in the early 20th century this is a must read. Click here for my full review.
3. Classics: Journey by Moonlight by Antal Szerb
This is a book that I have actually gotten “stuck” in on more than one occasion. The main character is sick of doing what his family, friends and society expect of him. When he goes to Italy on a honeymoon with his wife he gets “lost” in many different ways. This book kept me guessing the fate of the main character until the very end. Click here for my full review.
