Did I Notice Your Book Blogfest, October 17, 2012
Post about a book you’ve noticed.
You can choose a book that you’ve read, something you saw on a blog or social media site, Goodreads, or a sales website. Anything that caught your eye because of a great cover, blurb or reviews, but DON’T tell the author that their book has been noticed. Instead, shout out on social media sites, and encourage others to do the same, until the author finds his/her book.
Leave a blog comment at Ninja Captain Alex or Ciara Knight when the author finds their book.
Only two rules:
1) You can’t post about your own book.
2) The book shouldn’t be on the New York Times or USA Today bestseller list. This is your chance to shout out about a book that might not have been noticed by others.
I've noticed lots of interesting books around the blogosphere over the past weeks. Since there's no rule saying that we have to post about only ONE book, I'm going to name three books that have captured my attention… each one for a different reason… and instead of posting an excerpt/blurb, I'll simply explain… so here goes…
Who can remain immune to this title? The Mistaken. From the first time I spotted it, I haven't been able to get it out of my mind. It is a strong title (the cover picture does help too…), which hints at a rollercoaster, edge-of-your-seat story and delivers a punch, right to the solar plexus… and it is my favourite genre…
Before I started my fiction writing, I wouldn't normally give a second glance to books in the sci-fi genre. But Mary's book has piqued my curiosity, and as I've mentioned before, it sounds like the one (apart from CassaStar), that could get me started on my sci-fi journey…
This is the most gorgeous picture cover I've seen in a while… all glittery… shimmering… sparkling… like thousands of precious stones… a real visual treat! You've got to see the enlarged version. When I first saw it, it took my breath away… and I'm proud to say that Rachel is a "homegrown" writer!
So there you have it folks!
Three books… three different reasons… three different genres!
So what do you think? Am I mistaken about the title? Any other sci-fi suggestions? Have you seen a prettier cover picture recently?
