mLet me tell you a little bit about a program that I am part of. It's blogging for books by Waterbrook. I pick a book that is on their list (which is a lot of books to choose from) and I blog about it. Then I get to keep the book! Well, being that I love to read, I love this program! I recieved my first book in the mail a few days ago, but I was in the middle of another book so I had to finish that first. Well, it just happened to be another book by the same publishing company so I can review that for them as well. You can review any book by their publishing company. That's why I reviewed the book yesterday. Well, I finished another last night, so I will review it here.
Let me tell you a bit about what I think about book reviews. First of all, I don't even read the back cover of a book because I feel like it gives too much away. So, in my reviews I will tell you some of the good premises of a book (or not so good, depending), but I will never give too much away. Read the book for yourself if it's that good :)
The book I am reviewing today is another book by Rene Gutteridge, Skid. It is also in the Occupational Hazards series. This book took longer for me to get into, but once I was about 50 pages I didn't want to put it down. The ending was especially good.
Gutteridge has a nack for bringing humor into nearly every situation. She's a good writer. Some of the things in her books are farfetched, but it's a book for crying out loud. It's for entertainment purposes. I definitely like how she draws you in though.
I was a bit disappointed in the beginning of the book that there were SO many characters that Gutteridge seemed to be developing. I really wanted to just hear the main characters story, but in the end it all came together. I just wish that it wouldn't have taken so long to get there.
I still give this book a 4 out of 5 stars. It was a good read.
