Is there ever such a thing as too many books? I don’t think there are too many books to read, but there can definitely be too many to review. Often I’m sent books and, with an already sagging review shelf, these unsolicited books often end being overlooked – I just can’t fit them in to my schedule. Sunday Shout-Out aims to acknowledge these books and the publishers who have sent them to me.
Sunday Shout-Out is bookish meme hosted by Monique of Write Note Reviews. If you’re a book blogger and you want to join in, just:
- Share the title, author, blurb and image from a book (or more than one) you want to acknowledge
- Share the genre, price and link to the publisher so readers can follow up if they like the sound of the book
- Ping back to Write Note Reviews in your post.
1. Don’t Tempt Me by Sylvia Day (fiction, RRP $19.99) – courtesy of Penguin Books Australia
A tale of mistaken identity, lusty liaisons and dangerous deceptions in eighteenth-century France. Lynette Baillon’s twin, Lysette, died in an accident. Or so Lynette believed until, at a seductive masked ball in Paris, sexy stranger Simon Quinn mistakes her for her sister Lysette. And Simon, who planned to hand notorious assassin Lysette Rousseau over to the French, finds his plans confounded. However, on learning that her sister still lives – for now – Lynette vows to be reunited with her twin. Now she must enter an alluring but ensnaring underworld of dark and twisted desires, where Quinn rules.
I have read books 1-3 of the Crossfire series (see my review of Entwined With You), and while not my usual genre, they were entertaining reads. I will read Don’t Tempt Me, but I just can’t fit this into the review schedule. Have you read it? What did you think?
