Description: Poppy

All I wanted was to throw a little bag of dog poop at my ex's door to release my divorce demons. Is that too much to ask? Just my luck Deputy Hillbilly Upchuck Duke catches me in the act. That creep's been on me like germs on a buffet since we were kids. I have a bar to run, a beer garden to build, and moron cousins and patrons to wrangle. I don't have time to be stalked by this idiot. If he thinks showing back up in Grand Valley with a star on his inbred chest, sans mullet, will make me forget the hell he put me through, he's dumber than he was when he left Illinois. 

Chuck

Poppy Prince hates my guts. Always has. It's cute she thinks those nicknames bother me, almost as cute as how clueless she still is about her sex appeal. It takes a special kind of man to put up with her crap. I'm going to show her once and for all that no one's as special as me.

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by sffreads: By entering this giveaway, you agree to read the book by Dec 31st this year and to post your review on Amazon.

Description: A sister’s worst nightmare. A homicide detective’s destiny.

Everybody loves Claire’s little sister, Tina. But only Claire sees the twisted psychopath hiding behind her sister’s angelic face. When Tina is brutally murdered on her fourteenth birthday, the day Claire failed to walk her home from school, Claire never forgives herself. And neither does their mother.

Twelve years later, Claire, now a police detective, returns to Newburgh to solve the mystery of her sister’s death. When more girls turn up dead exactly like Tina, Claire suspects that her sister’s murderer is still on the prowl. But this is no ordinary serial killer. The murders stump the team of FBI agents and a forensic profiler assisting the investigation, including Special Agent Robert Cline—a former FBI hostage negotiator and Claire’s old flame.

As the evidence piles up, Claire’s troubled childhood comes back to haunt her. She becomes the lead suspect in the murder investigation, and the system turns against her. Unable to trust anyone—not even herself—Claire must break every rule in the book to save the next girl.

With time running out in this nerve-shredding psychological thriller and harrowing family drama, a shocking discovery changes everything. Is Claire’s sister truly dead—or is she playing one final lethal prank?

A page-turning thriller packed with heart-stopping suspense and mind-blowing twists, YOU DID THIS is the first book in a series and can be read as a standalone. Fans of Mike Omer, Robert Dugoni, Melinda Leigh, and Karin Slaughter should get to know Claire Wolfe.

Garage Band Theory: Tools the Pros Use to Play by Ear by Duke Sharp (Cowboy Heaven Publishing)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by DukeSharp (author): A self-published is always looking for more honest reviews.
After 30 years as a professional musician and a decade as a music teacher, Duke Sharp was inspired to write Garage Band Theory (GBT).

GBT is the definitive D-I-Y guide to learning music theory and was created to be a comprehensive guide for beginning and experienced players alike.

It's an ideal gift for that special musical someone!

Sharp plays and teaches several instruments so he wanted to create a book that covered multiple instruments, and that would be useful to teachers, students and musicians of all stripes.

Playing piano as soon as he could reach the keys, Sharp was in his first band at 16, playing guitar by ear.

"My buddies and I listened to our favorite bands, trying to play along and learn the riffs, digging divots in vinyl albums," he recalls. "We memorized patterns, shapes and sounds, and then kept doing them without learning the names. While trying very hard not to, we learned the mechanics of basic music theory, but without the associated vocabulary.

You might say that each of us reinvented the wheel -- and then couldn't talk to each other about what we learned."

Imagine a group of people who are going to build a house together. They can describe their tools, talk about general features of their favorite structures, and have a shared vocabulary for the boards and fasteners. Everyone on the job knows exactly what 2 x 4's are. Joists, 16 penny nails, drywall screws and sheets of plywood are no mystery.

Every field has a shared jargon, yet this process of learning basic vocabulary associated with a craft is often skipped in music lessons.

Music theory is a vast topic, but there are only a few definitions and concepts that are required to understand a process for playing by ear.

In GBT, he succinctly conveys 'music speak' -- and inspires confidence.

"Anyone who has learned to speak has a proven ability to recognize subtle differences in sounds, learn a meaning for these sounds, and reproduce them with all their subtleties in an appropriate context. We all have an enormous 'vocabulary' of sounds we hear and identify every day. Close your eyes for a moment and think about that. I'm certain that your ability to recognize, identify and reproduce different sounds is exactly the same ability I use (in conjunction with a couple of other skills) to play music by ear.

I've learned to associate names with musical sounds, along with the most common ways these sounds are used, and I've developed the coordination to reproduce these sounds.

If you can speak, and can distinguish between a barking dog and a crowing rooster, I believe you have the required hearing skills to play by ear."

Every musical genre, from bluegrass to jazz to classical, use predictable, symmetrical structures. Once you become familiar with the layout of one, it's easy to figure out the others.

When you can add knowledge of the structure to your natural ability to recognize sounds, you're two-thirds of the way to playing by ear. The remaining third is coordination.

Description: Garage Band Theory covers everything you need to understand, play and make your own music!
GBT combines the freedom of playing by ear and the strength of traditional music theory.
This is practical, useful theory for musicians who want to be able to think coherently about music in order to ask questions and understand answers about the music they want to play.
The stuff in GBT is about understanding The Beatles and the Rolling Stones, Cole Porter and Duke Ellington, The Grateful Dead and Vampire Weekend.
It's NOT about analyzing Bach Fugues - but you'll be able to if you want to.
Whether you're a beginner or a professional, studying on your own or with a teacher, GBT has loads of useful stuff for you.
GBT assumes you know nothing about basic theory and is written in a conversational, easy to follow style.
It's all in there, everything you ever wanted to know... but didn't know how to ask.
Garage Band Theory is the only book that recognizes that a beginner won't always be a beginner and that everyone wants to play better.
It's loaded with easy to understand approaches to playing by ear and traditional theory, using popular examples as well as the familiar tunes you know and love.
Here is a very brief recap of what you get when you order GBT:
•Multi-genre approach – dozens of musical examples provide lots of variety, which makes you more well rounded musically.
•Chapter quizzes and an answer key allow students to measure progress.
•Learn to read music — with GBT examples + free software you develop reading skills without having to actually play an instrument.
•Tablature for guitar, mandolin, banjo as well as a standard notation for keyboards, brass and woodwinds.

It also includes keyboard illustrations, hundreds of standard notation illustrations.
The included diagrams and explanations make it easy to understand how similar all the instruments are and how they all relate to the keyboard.
There are loads of exercises and examples using familiar songs and with the free downloads on the book's website you can watch and hear the notes play at any speed you choose.
The YouTube channel has over 250 videos so you can listen to every song used as an example. After all, playing by ear is about listening and GBT is the ONLY book that provides that.
"A full course of study under one cover, Garage Band Theory is impressively informed and informative. It's practical and insightful and should be considered an essential resource for any aspiring musician."James A Cox - Midwest Book Review - Publisher's Weekly
"Garage Band Theory is a must for any musician." Rodney Crowell - 2 time Grammy winner
"Don't be put off by this giant book - Duke's got the secrets of the universe in here. Quite simply, this is the most comprehensive book on music theory I've ever seen." - Bill Payne (Little Feat)
"Something for every musician at any level. Especially helpful is the musical notation and tablature for a variety of instruments. This book inspires me to learn and practice more." Sam Bush - International Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame
"This book is written in the people's key." Kostas - Nashville Songwriter Hall of Fame

You can be a multi-insturmentalist! Garage Band Theory provides clear explanations and lots of tabs for guitar, mandolin, and banjo.

Offered by Harvey.Havel (author): Please provide a review for this exceptional novel, as that is why the author is giving it away. This book is one of nineteen books the author has written, and your honest review will help him to write better.

Description: Charlie Zero has finally arrived to where he doesn’t want to be, as he begins his journey to find the woman of his dreams by starting out at dead last on society’s totem pole. He lives in a town that expects the economy to pick up from wealthy people moving in from the nearby city, but prosperity never comes. Instead, men like Charlie Zero are stuck in low-wage, dead-end jobs that offer no hope of surviving if he ever wants to get married and live the suburban American dream.

But there’s suddenly new hope for Charlie when he meets a wealthy and successful mobster at a local bar late one night, and with his help, Charlie hopes to get the woman his in love with by associating with him. He finds out, though, that even with the mobster’s help, he is arrested, loses his job, and is generally tortured by his lot in life and the threadbare existence that comes with it. His only real choice, he decides, is to take action and kill the man who is most responsible for it all: the mobster himself.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by Maya_Morrison (author): I am looking to have early reviews posted to both/either Amazon and Goodreads.

Description: A chance encounter. Fated paths. Unlikely allies.

When I was young, I met a boy at the waterfall on the edge of the Forbidden Forest. Our pack was prohibited from venturing there. But being the alpha's only child and a bit of a social misfit, it became my second home.

Tiam and I became best friends, experiencing each other's firsts and building an unbreakable bond. Until fate caught up with us, and I had no choice but to reject him, to protect him from myself and my pack. It was the wrong choice, leaving me more shunned and outcasted than before.

Years later, ostracized and sick of dealing with the alpha holes in Sibyl Falls, I plan my escape, and that all goes to shit when my biggest secret is uncovered. To make matters worse, young girls in our pack start disappearing, and no one takes it seriously until one of those girls turns out to be someone I care deeply about.

On the run and trying to Nancy Drew this shit, I find myself working with the most unlikely ally, Damen Elder, the once heir to the largest shifter pack in the realms. He is deadly, sexy, and wounded. Yet, we are like colliding stars, unable to resist the pull and heat of our attraction. As the danger thickens and secrets begin to unravel, I discover his fate and mine are more interlinked than I could have ever imagined.

The Ballad of Billy McFee by Ruby Mosher (Virginia Raymond Publishing)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by RubyMosher (author): I'm the author and would love to get reviews from people on LibraryThing since you definitely LOVE books! I'm giving this book away because I really want to know what YOU think. In this book, I've spent a great deal of time creating Easter Eggs, subplots, and story arcs in hopes parents and children will want to read and re-read (or sing and re-sing!) the book.

Description: Children's picture book.  38 pages

Here is the uplifting and inspirational children’s picture book that has all the clams talking – and everyone else singing!
This is the Ballad of Billy McFee! Billy is a colorful and resourceful young fish who dreams of sailing a ship that he found stuck in the muck at the bottom of the sea. Billy sees potential in the ship while everyone else swims right past. Billy struggles to free the ship while shrugging off negative comments from onlookers (a pair of naysayer clams).  When Billy cannot move the ship by himself, he becomes a leader and builds a crew of diverse friends: a friendly shark, a big strong whale, and an intellectual crab.  Billy and his friends sing as they work, just as sailors of yore sang to synchronize their efforts.  But unlike many old sea shanties, the Ballad of Billy McFee is friendly to all sea creatures and is appropriate for people of all ages.

How will YOU tell the Ballad of Billy McFee?
The Ballad of Billy McFee is packed to the gills with character development, subplots, puns, and Easter eggs for young and old to find. For example, everyone in the story is on a journey of some kind - whether it be physical or mental, intended or unintended. Some readers will want to get out the magnifying glass and explore the covers of the books which the crab (Emma) reads on her journey of self-improvement.  Others will want to follow the antics of the naysayer clams.  And some readers (especially the singers) may want to ignore all that and just sing the ballad, glancing at the pictures and turning the pages to keep time with the rhythm.  It's all good! There is no wrong way to read or sing the Ballad of Billy McFee.  This book is all about celebrating our differences.  Through our diversity, we are stronger together!   

 How will YOU tell Billy’s uplifting story?  Some people read it like a rhyming story.  Some people sing it to the tune of the Wellerman. Some people rap it to a hip hop beat.  Some people make up their own tune.You can read it - you can sing it – whatever floats YOUR boat!

There is much more to this book than what may immediately appear.  Check out the book discussion on https://rubymosher.com

Wonder Valley by Rhys Stalba-Smith (Self-published)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by Rhysman91 (author): Hi there LT Readers,

My name is Rhys Stalba-Smith and I'm sure you're like me with a big stack of books to be read, so why not have more? I'm looking for readers and reviewers, but all the same I understand how busy life is, so really all that I ask is that you enjoy it.

Description: It’s never just a kidnapping…

Thirty years is a long time to wait for truth.
A longer time to run.
But thirty bodies are a lot to grieve for, and for the town of Nowhey, home to the infamous Wonder Valley Massacre of the sixties, the waiting is about to end.

In the third novel of the State of Affairs series, we again leave the city for wide haunting spaces of South Australia. Where everyone knows everyone and knows what’s going on. Or at least they think so.

That is until one of their own ends up dead, an apparent suicide, that once the digging begins becomes more sinister. For ex-detective Will Davidson, it’s been years since he investigated anything other than the emptiness of a strong bottle of liquor. But then this isn’t just another investigation, this was his father. And he was working on something big, something dangerous. Something with hands all the way back to Will’s childhood, when the massacre was fresh on the town’s mind and he only knew one thing, that he was leaving Nowhey for good.

Wonder Valley is an un-put-downable thriller that will leave you gasping for breath. Crime has never been this close to home, or this dangerous, so grab the page-turner before it gets buried along with the bodies...

Description: All they have to do is leave the beach...

Six years ago Annie lost her husband in a motorcycle accident. Six days ago her and the kids were preparing to go camping on the Stretch. Six hours ago they decided to go hiking in the sand hills. Six minutes ago they found an old shack with a body inside. Six seconds ago the man woke up and told her to take the suitcase and run.

Alone with her family on the 150 kilometre stretch of beach in the Coorong National Park, Annie stumbles upon a secret, a dangerous wish. If they can escape the park their lives will be changed forever, but they're not the only ones on it...

The debut work of Rhys Stalba-Smith, The Stretch is an edge of the seat thriller set on the turbulent landscape of the South Australian coast. With plenty of action and suspense, along with the boiling sun and vast open sands, you'll need a drink to keep cool while you read on. The land Down Under just became a lot more dangerous.

Firebird Rising: The Gray Dynasty Book 1 by A. S. Marshall

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by asmarshall (author): Your review matters. In exchange for this book, kindly provide an honest review on either Amazon or Goodreads on or after December 20, 2021 when the book officially goes live.

Description: “…a heat began coursing through her. Its warmth enveloped her being, sending a rush of blood through every vein in her body as it settled between her palms, pulsating in fiery intensity. A wicked smile spread across her lips. Finally, debts have come due. It paid to be a Gray.”

A powerful mafia dynasty. Ancient magic. A fiery female lead.

The gift of fire burns within Celia Gray, a feisty young woman who considers herself ahead of her time. She was born to be in the family business––an ancient mafia dynasty––if only her father would allow it. Finding herself caught between the life society demands of a woman and the life she craves, Celia is fighting the losing battle for the right to choose her own destiny.

Harold Gray is the boss of the Gray family and the head of the five “gifted” families of Fauland. A powerful man with a commanding presence, he believes his daughters would be better off married and living a comfortable life in the country, away from the dealings of the business. But Celia, not one to give up without a fight, has other ideas.

To claim her rightful place beside her father and show him how capable she really is, she concocts a scheme to take on a local gangster who duped him. When plans go awry and lives are lost, Celia must confront how far she's willing to go to get what she wants.

With a cast of captivating characters, a forbidden romance and deadly consequences, Firebird Rising is a page-turner that you won’t be able to put down.

Unique Medals From The King by Michael Seagrim

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by Mylibrevs (publisher): This book is available as ebook only in epub, mobi and PDF formats.

I hope you enjoy this book and post a review on Amazon.

Description: The story examines the experiences of one family in perhaps the most dramatic period of British history, in the Inter-War and War years. By modern day standards this family was large, as they tended to be when couples were conditioned by a world which existed before such life-saving discoveries of medicines as penicillin.
The focus is on the wife of a church minister who surmounted a series of setbacks with fortitude. Her husband wilfully lost her sizeable inheritance; and after he died, she vacated the tied living in Norfolk, to live ‘as poor as a church mouse.’ Two of her five sons were killed in the Second World War and a third invalided out of the Army. She wrote poignant letters that described her suffering.
The underlying theme is of the various facets of courage, displayed not only by her but her sons. As a result, twice she visited Buckingham Palace to receive the medals from George VIth; and in a unique display wore them on a Remembrance Day Parade.
The book explains that what drove this family on was their deeply held sense of duty and service to decent and freedom-loving people.

Horseracing: A Sport of Enchantment by Steven Goss-Turner

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by Mylibrevs (publisher): This book is available as ebook only in epub, mobi and PDF formats.

I hope you enjoy this book and post a review on Amazon.

Description: Horseracing attracted six million people to UK race meetings in 2019, a spectator count only bettered by professional football. Nine million television viewers watched the 2021 Grand National Steeplechase.
Racing has been part of the social life of the nation for 500 years, a sporting culture followed by people from every strata of society, a sport based on an ancient and primeval relationship; the human and the horse. It is an enchanting activity to many, yet one cloaked in mystery, curious processes and even curiouser terminology.
For the enchanted, there is soul-stirring speed, power and beauty, but controversies such as whip usage and equine fatalities cause some to demand its curtailment, even abolition.
Semi-autobiographical in approach, there is nostalgia, emotion and humour as the author draws on a lifetime of involvement as viewer, racegoer, punter, and partner in the ownership of two racehorses, to answer the question: how has horseracing become a sport of enchantment?

Offered by Mylibrevs (publisher): This book is available as ebook only in epub, mobi and PDF formats.

Description: Carter Davison has time on his hands, a few bob in his pocket, and a burning desire to improve the lives of his chums. Whether they like it or not!

He is fascinated by the idea of the “six degrees of separation”. So he initiates a strategy.

What begins as a “what if I did this, this and this” series of casual wonderings is implemented one small step at a time.

Facebook it is. Carter is a watcher. A flaneur. An observer of 21st century human interaction in microcosm.

A selection is made. Five pals who, he feels, could do with a surreptitious helping hand. One at a time, Carter involves them in a series of devious scenarios.

But the road to Hell is, as we know, paved with good intentions. The road to heaven is much the same. If only Carter knew it.

The Amnesic Betrayal by Dr Jay

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by Mylibrevs (publisher): This book is available as ebook only in epub, mobi and PDF formats.

I hope you enjoy this book and post a review on Amazon.

Description: The Amnesic Betrayal deals with the agony of a husband, Christopher Hall, whose wife Susan forgets him, their son Adam and their daughter Meryl completely. To add insult to injury, Susan starts a romantic relationship with Joseph Connolly, a resident in the nursing home where both of them are being looked after because of their memory loss. Adam, a recovering drug addict, swears that he will certainly put a stop to the unholy liaison. Jack, Joe Connolly’s son, argues that his father should be allowed to continue his new found romance unimpeded, without any interference from anybody. He asks, ’when does the right of an individual with lack of memory cease to exist and the wilful gratification of the relatives take over?’ The moral and ethical connotations are enormous.

The incident at the traffic lights, the goings on in the mysterious ‘green room’, the plot of a conniving, greedy, ex-girlfriend, the opportunism of a scheming ‘home- help’ and the awful consequences of Ketamine drug abuse will take you through the pages of this book to a climax which is as dramatic as is unexpected.

1984, an ill-advised journey? by Colette Nicolle

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by Mylibrevs (publisher): This book is available as ebook only in epub, mobi and PDF formats.

I hope you enjoy this book and post a review on Amazon.

Description: Join the Nicolle family on a road trip from Irbid, Jordan, to London in a Fiat Panda. Colette was five months pregnant and their son Freddie was under two years old, which led to certain not entirely unexpected difficulties along the way, as well as significantly different priorities.
The three-week journey in the heat of summer in 1984 is told through the separate, and at that time private, diaries of David and Colette Nicolle. As the diary entries are presented separately, the reader can compare these conflicting day by day stresses, and how or if they were resolved.
Here we should also note that David and Colette remain happily married. Follow a range of interests from medieval art and architecture to the urgent search for disposable nappies, not to mention finding themselves unexpectedly related by marriage to French Resistance heroes.
The authors also hope to reassure new or soon-to-be parents that exciting lives can continue after giving birth.

Foweraker's Ricardian Riddle by John Benedict

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by Mylibrevs (publisher): This book is available as ebook only in epub, mobi and PDF formats.

I hope you enjoy this book and post a review on Amazon.

Description: Pre-World War II Cambridge. The elderly Master of St. John’s, mediaevalist Professor Morecote, has been murdered - stabbed in the back in his college rooms.

Who murdered him and why? Was it the American students who feared being sent down for night-climbing? Or could it be a resentful colleague? Alternatively, was it connected with the discovery of artefacts - now missing - relating to the origins of the college and to its founder, Lady Margaret Beaufort, mother of Henry VII?

These artifacts alone would be almost priceless, but amongst them was a document, possibly written by Sir John Buck, historian and Master of the Revels in the Jacobean period. That document blamed Margaret Beaufort, and not Richard III, for the disappearance of the Princes in the Tower. This could, in the wrong hands, be political dynamite.

Scotland Yard’s Chief Inspector Foweraker and his team must determine the guilty parties and join up the loose ends, both current and historical.

RULES OF FALLING by Leslie Tall Manning (Leslie Tall Manning)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by LTManning (author): RULES OF FALLING, my new Young Adult novel, combines an edgy plotline with multi-faceted characters. While the story's illicit affair offers intrigue, a deeper theme of finding one’s bravery lies at the heart. The target market is girls between the ages of 16 and 18, so please keep this in mind while reading.

My goal is to gain some thoughtful and well-written reviews. A blurb taken from one of these reviews could be added to the book's cover.

RULES OF FALLING is my sixth published novel. My writing awards include the Sarton Women’s Literary Award; North Carolina Author Project Award; Self-e Library Journal Selection; International Book Award Finalist; Taleflick Road to Development Finalist; Indie Brag Medallion; Story Monsters Certificate of Excellence; and the Firebird Literary Fiction Award.

Description: Erica O’Donnell is hardly the quintessential high school senior. She doesn’t have a driver’s license. She’s never been to a concert. Sports are out of the question. She doesn’t own a pair of heels. No boy has ever asked her out. All of this for good reason: Erica faints. A lot. And at the most inconvenient times.

Chronic fainting, also known as syncope, keeps Erica on the sidelines as the odd-girl out. Luckily, Lindsay Bennett hovers nearby to catch Erica each time she nose-dives to the floor. Lindsay isn’t only Erica’s best friend—for four years she’s been her savior.

But things are about to change.

When Lindsay breaks up with her boyfriend Adam to pursue a married man, Erica is intrigued. But as Lindsay’s relationship intensifies, Erica finds her own world spinning out of control: from covering up her friend’s affair, to hiding her feelings for Adam, to casting suspicion when a string of arson fires sweeps through the town.

Gradually peeling away layers of deception from those she trusts the most, Erica must decide how far she is willing to go to uncover truths—and how many people will get burned in the process.

You Can't Prevent Prophecy by D.G. Redd (Self-published)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by DGRedd (author): This is my first self-published novel, though it's not the first I've written. I'm trying to get some readers, and some reviews, to drive more readers and more reviews.

Ideally the reviews would be posted to Amazon.

I'm also hoping to find some fans. Some people who enjoy the story and want to read more.

Description: A light-hearted adventure of an arrogant human warrior, a halfling, and a dwarven cleric. Each has their own ambitions, but they all want the Eye of Aera, a magical artifact spoken of in ancient prophecies.

But prophecies are malleable things, that can be bent to suit the needs of those with the knowledge and power to do so.

This is a humorous fantasy novel.
There are no continent spanning quests.
There is no reluctant hero who discovers a hidden talent.
There is no love interest tugging at her braids or smoothing her skirts.

This is a light-hearted adventure.

Here is a Body by Basma Abdel Aziz (Hoopoe, an imprint of the American University in Cairo Press)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by sueostfield (publisher): Read and recommend this powerful novel. Thank you!

Description: In this follow-up to her PEN Award-winning novel, The Queue, an electrifying new voice in Arab women’s fiction passionately brings to life the machinations of state oppression

Mysterious men are rounding up street children and enrolling them in a so-called “rehabilitation program,” designed to indoctrinate them for the military-backed regime’s imminent crackdown on its opponents. Across town, thousands of protesters encamp in a city square demanding the return of the recently deposed president.

Reminiscent of recent clashes in Egypt and reflective of political movements worldwide where civilians face off against state power, Abdel Aziz deftly illustrates the universal human struggles between resisting and succumbing to an oppressive regime.

Here Is A Body is a courageous and powerful depiction of the state cooptation of human bodies, the dehumanization of marginalized groups, and the use of inflammatory religious rhetoric to manipulate a narrative.

"An unflinching and deeply humane masterwork by a writer of astounding talent and courage."—Omar El Akkad, author of What Strange Paradise 

"Haunting . . . bracing . . . This potent novel about powerful regimes and their constant rhetoric is nonetheless hopeful about powerless voices within those regimes who recognize their own manipulation. Here is a Body handles religion, politics, community, and family with provocative vitality."—Foreword Reviews

"A disturbing but vital read"—Arab News

Reviews for The Queue:

“The Queue...has drawn comparisons to Western classics like George Orwell’s 1984 and The Trial by Franz Kafka. It represents a new wave of dystopian and surrealist fiction from Middle Eastern writers who are grappling with the chaotic aftermath and stinging disappointments of the Arab Spring.”—The New York Times

“An effective critique of authoritarianism...People...will always find a way to control other people in one way or another, should it suit them. Perhaps with the publication of The Queue, the lesson will begin to finally sink in.” —NPR

“Full of mysterious and troubling detail...Abdel Aziz delivers a striking portrait of an authority that claims all power while rejecting all responsibility, that forces people to hear and speak untruths and to embrace their own oppression.”—The Nation

“Basma Abdel Aziz’s novel is not simply an exegesis on the state of her homeland, but a much more universal evocation of the relationships between hegemonic power and grassroots dissent. It feels both fitting and faintly tragic that she had to resort to the literature of dark fantasy to convey it.” —Toronto Globe and Mail

“Although this is a novel, if you follow events in today’s Egypt, it’s not far from the truth. A brave effort.” —New York Post

"The Queue was written before the military coup that pub Abdel Fattah al-Sisi in power, but it has proved prophetic...This is a study of totalitarian logic with the plainness of a Kafka parable.”—Harper's

“Abdel Aziz illustrates how life in an authoritarian state is normalized not just by the government, but by the people.”—Think Progress

“Offers a window into how the revolution failed...underlining, above all, the solidarities and divisions oppression creates, even as it allows for the stories of people who are otherwise often overlooked to be told...[The Queue] points to the errors in thinking that make change impossible.” —Music & Literature

“Weird and wild...a Kafkaesque tale of a modern Egypt.” —BookRiot

“Equal parts dystopia, satire, and allegory...A distinctly Egyptian version of its Orwellian counterpart, much more real and all the more absurd for it...The nature of truth, its official invocations, its power and its danger, lies at the heart of this work.”—Los Angeles Review of Books

“[Abdel Aziz] brings her careful observations of power, pain and Egyptian society to a remarkable debut.”—Qantara

“An Orwellian tale about life in a Middle Eastern country after a series of unsuccessful protests.” —Men's Journal

“[A] trenchant political fantasy...Mahfouz meets Orwell, with a particularly interesting look at the lives of Egyptian women from a variety of class backgrounds." —The Forward

“One of the most exciting post-Revolution novels written in Egypt.” —The New Inquiry

“The sense of total repression that people feel from authoritative states is chillingly detailed...It seems hugely significant...that it’s a woman who has written this book, dared to point her finger in the eyes of authority in spite of what...are very genuine threats to her own well-being.”—Counterpunch

“Insightful, multilayered.”—ArabLit

“Timely.” —SF Signal

“The Queue is the world we live in without letting ourselves to know it…the most chilling aspect of this novel is how normal it all feels…” —Okayafrica

“[Abdel Aziz's] characters are multi-faceted...The sense of Egypt wafts through the pages with mint tea, cafes, heat and vivacious personalities.”—Arab News

“A surreal version of modern-day Egypt.” —Kirkus

“An arresting portrayal of totalitarian control.” —Library Journal

“Captures a sense of futility and meaninglessness...Aziz ultimately suggests the worst while leaving the smallest space for hopeful interpretation, a fitting metaphor for Egypt after the Arab Spring.” —Publishers Weekly

“Abdel Aziz is redefining Arabic women’s literature.” —Essam Zakaria, El-Fagr

“[The Queue] skillfully paints the image of an authority with the power to turn human beings into indistinguishable copies of one another. Written with satire, the novel moves between dystopia and reality—or a world that seems like reality. With her first novel, Abdel Aziz has clearly secured an important position on the map of contemporary literature in the Arab world.” —Al-Mogaz

“Abdel Aziz creates a world parallel to the one in which we live, one where the characters reveal to us the nature of human beings and the choices they make in life.” —Al-Itihad

The Speakeasy Murders by Patricia M. Muhammad (Patricia M. Muhammad)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by pmmuhammad (author): To celebrate the completion of my 22nd novel, I am giving away 12 free copies of my first mystery/detective novel, The Speakeasy Murders! Only 12 copies available.

The author requests an honest review in exchange for the free copy. If inclined, please post review on Goodreads and LibraryThing.

Description: CONTENT WARNING: This book is a work of fiction. However, the author intended to create characters and settings historically accurate to the era it takes place in, the racially tumultuous 1920s. Certain terms used as racial descriptions now considered archaic, outdated or even offensive are used to reflect the past usage by both black and white Americans of that era. Particular themes regarding race, references to certain crimes such as murder and sexual assault are included as part of the fictional plot. The author provides this content description for any potential reader who may consider any of these subject matters or references too sensitive to consider.

It is the roaring 1920s in the city of Chicago. Helen Williams is an astute, but bashful upper class coloured detective. Helen obtained her position through a recommendation from her father after delaying an opportunity to attend Fisk University. Her mother spoke against Helen accepting the job. Williams assumed it because at the time, a young, refined, coloured woman being a detective was 'unladylike.' Her go to instrument is an heirloom magnifier she inherited from her hard working and well educated grandfather. Though some of her co-workers take some time to become accustomed to her quirks, she is admired for her detail, accepted and often called upon her colleagues for her insight. Williams has only heard of one other female coloured detective whom she never met. Helen is called in one night to help investigate some peculiar murders in which a field is often used and she now believes is the criminal mastermind's dumping ground. After a couple of days of discussing similar cases with her colleagues, Helen concludes that the executioner is a serial killer who also orders the killings. These activities stem from an underground nightclub. A group of criminals throw a brick into the station house to warn the officers to keep their investigations to crimes above ground. Lieutenant Henry Johnson orders the station on lockdown. After he lifts the lockdown, Johnson partners Williams with Patterson undercover to further investigate murders at the speakeasy. Stephen introduces Helen to his sister Ruby to help her undergo her transformation. Williams now appears as a flapper with her station house brother, Stephen accompanying her. She is surrounded by the unfamiliar, jazz music, alcoholic beverages, and the wildest dance crazes. Williams reminds herself to focus on the investigation. One night at the speakeasy, Helen is assaulted and nearly raped by a Negro male in one of the bigger rooms to the left of the main floor. His African male accomplice waits at the threshold of the room's door to make sure the job is done. She was able to maneuver and defend herself until Stephen nearly pummels him. Thaddeus sees the African man run and trips him, upon impact his skull is split on nails of floorboards. Helen runs out. Thaddeus carries her away and brings her to his flat. She is shy and cautious. The Englishman is protective of her. They increase in natural affection towards one another. The Englishman proposes to Helen and she accepts. One night at the speakeasy, Helen discovers a secret stairwell. It would be the gateway which leads her to solve the murders. Helen and Thaddeus will finally have the peace they earned, and the life destined for them to have—with each other.

The Road to Vermilion Lake by Vic Cavalli (Harvard Square Editions)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by VicCavalli (author): Upon its original publication, The Road to Vermilion Lake was reviewed in Literary Review (UK), Pacific Rim Review of Books, Midwest Book Review, and Edinburgh Book Review. If you are interested in literary fiction and would also like to review it, feel free to request an eBook copy. The author will send PDF files directly to the individuals selected by LibraryThing.

Description: "The novel tells the story of . . . Thomas Neal Tems, a blaster's assistant and first-aid attendant who lives and works on a construction site beside a glorious, remote lake. The site is being developed by a Swiss company into an ecologically friendly village, and Thomas begins a romance with the talented and imaginative architect who designed the site, a devout Catholic. The world that the characters must navigate, however, is decidedly not a romantic one. It is marked by painful past experiences, dysfunctional families, tragic accidents, alcoholism, and drug overdoses, all of which seem to derive from an inability to reach beyond the superficiality of existence. And yet, this is a world of second chances, for those who desire to change their imaginative perspective, to seek a sense of depth and enchantment that is deeply embedded in the tangible world, particularly in the body and in the natural world, as well as in the creative world of contemplative thought."
