TELL ME TUESDAY #Eight...


I am feeling wickedly weird this TuEsDaY for some reason.

Welcome to the EIGHTH installment of TELL ME TuEsDaY!! Hosted by the ever clever Brittersweet at PLEASE FEED the BOOKWORM and ME, La La. This is a weekly, or bi-weekly, feature (depending on how much you read) where you TELL US what you are ReAdiNg now, and why, and what you will be choosing next from your TBRs, and why.

We are  always CuRiOuS why people read what they read.

Wait for it...


ME


I have been reading Tabula Rasa.


I don't know quite how to explain this book. It isn't Dystopian. I get the feeling it is set in current times, and there have been no apocalyptic events in the past, as far as I know, from what I have already read. There might be a slight chance it will emerge as a paranormal, but I can't be sure of that at this point, either (and I am about 70% in). What I do know is it is action packed, and full of intrigue, and I am thoroughly enjoying reading it. 

It is a "read now" on Netgalley. I know quite a few blogger/reviewers look away from "read nows" and "download nows" on Netgalley and Edelweiss, but I have found that most of my "approved for all" reads have been at least a respectable three stars, and many have been solid fours. A couple were even five star ratings for me.



 In fact these are the type of authors who definitely need our time and attention; the uber best-selling authors not so much (if at all). So, I am glad I needed to pump up my stats because the naysayers were wrong.

WHAT'S NEXT?
Yes, another Netgalley "approved for all."

I am tantilized about this book because of a bad review I read on Goodreads. This is a Horror genre book, mind you, and someone rated it two stars because although it was "well written" it was "too scary." WITAFIT????

Run home for your torches, I declare SHENANIGANS!!!!

  4. There are people who don't like 'read now' titles? That's so silly! I thought it was based more on publisher than on the quality of the book - for example, Egmont (the publisher of Tabula Rasa) does a lot of 'read now' titles because they don't have to bother with approving people. I say a good book is a good book - and I'm happy you're enjoying TABULA RASA! :)

  5. Yes! I finished it today and it was four stars from me. This is a high rating because I very rarely give fives. Thank-you for visiting.

  6. I has Tabula Rasa! I got it from Edelweiss not too long ago. The eye cover intrigued me, but after reading a few pages, I'm not really sure what to think about it. There are some READ NOWS on Netgalley that are cool! Like not too long ago, Mira Grant's PARASITE (4 stars from me, awesome book, same author as the Newsflesh trilogy) was a READ NOW! Some, though, aren't really the kinda book I'd love to read haha.
