Book Review: Slingshot by Matthew Dunn + Giveaway

SLINGSHOT is Book 3 in Matthew Dunn’s SPYCATHER Series and is the best one yet. In SLINGSHOT, Will Cochrane is given his most difficult mission to date, finding a missing piece of paper and stopping a plot so evil it’s difficult to comprehend the breadth and depth of the conspiracy. If he can’t stop the threat in time, potentially millions of lives are at stake.

Weekend Reads: Hidden Order by Brad Thor

What are you reading this weekend?

I just started reading Brad Thor’s newest thriller, Hidden Order. I’m about 11 chapters into it and totally hooked.

I hope to carve out a few hours of uninterrupted reading time this weekend to really sink into this story.

What kind of books do you like to read when you travel?

Hubby and I are headed to New York City for Book Expo America. Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve discovered so many books I want to read this Summer and it seems like I’ve been downloading a new book every day to take with us. I’m pretty sure my eReader is just as over-packed as my suitcase!

Are You Emotionally Connected When You Read?

Are You Emotionally Connected When You Read?

A few months ago, New York Times best selling author Susan Mallery asked her followers on Twitter to name the last book they read that made them cry. Thinking about my answer to that question, I was a little surprised to realize it has been nearly seven years since I cried over a book.

So that got me wondering, why do you choose to read certain books? What motivates you to pick up one book over another? And do you feel an emotional response is critical for you to consider a book to be great?
