I moved on to self-help and my balloon kind of busted. It’s a genre I’m not a huge fan of but I managed to read two books, however, not as enthusiastically as I did Mr. Mercedes- I ate that book up in a week. Between reading for a real estate and business management classes I have basically avoided any pleasure reading. I’m kind of in need for something gripping. Last night I pulled out a novel I bought in January because I follow the author’s blog. I love her post and I have read a few story excerpts and I find her to be a truly talented writer. So last night after my class I wanted to take a bath and watch Moone boy on Hulu but grabbed her book Conception instead.
OH. MY. GOD.
Kalisha is a wonderful storyteller! So far she has showed a brilliant mastery with her words of description and character development. I know these characters and am anxious to see where they are going. I’m just thirty pages in and I’m hooked. I didn’t want to go to sleep but I started reading too late. This is one book that will become a classic in my family because if it keeps going the way it is going I will have everyone in my family read it.
Please check out her blog NEGRESSION which has samples of her writing and I will do a complete review of Conception in the very near future. Like, next week because I’m pretty sure I will be done reading it. She has two other novels and I’m sure I will be grabbing them up as well.
