'Unrivaled': A confession

I am having the hardest time getting into this book. And I love Siri Mitchell (LOVE is not a strong enough word ) so I don’t think it is the  book, I think it is me.

I think, fair readers, as I have often thunk, that you have to be in the right mood for a book. Right now, I am not quite in the mood for Unrivaled and its parallel storylines and candy confection.  That doesn’t mean I won’t be in the mood later on. Nope. Nope. Nope. It just means that I am shelving this for a bit without guilt.

I did want to let you know it is out there; because the kind Bethany House folks were kind enough to provide me with a netgalley copy and it is only right that I give it some page time on the blog near the beginning of its release.

I love you, Siri Mitchell. I love your books.   Unrivaled and I will cross paths again.

(Also, I always spelled "unrivalled" with two 'l's; but the cover has one ---am I showing my Canadianness again?)

I love you too, Rachel!! And I can't tell you how many weeks it took me to spell Unrivaled the American way. (I went to middle school and high school in NB and Ontario...old habits die hard...)After a string of more serious books, I felt an urgent need to write something different. Maybe that's what's throwing you off? {Throwing some chocolate kisses your way}

You did a nice job with this, Rachel. So often I guiltily stick an unread or half-read review copy back on the shelf, and don't even mention it. I need to learn to be more gracious and classy, like you!

Does look good. I am so all over the "mood reading." That's why I always have four books with me at all times -- who knows what I'll be in the mood to read!
