The Literary Blog Hop – June 22 – 26

literarybloghopjuneWe haven’t had a tour hop here for awhile so I was thrilled to sign up for this one!

Thank You Judith For Hosting!

Only 42 stops so easily manageable and great odds of winning 🙂

The complete list is at the bottom of this post.

I have 2 separate Literary Escapes!

Escape #1

What Maisie Knew (Movie Tie-In)

The inspiration for a new film starring Julianne Moore, Alexander Skarsgard, Steve Coogan, and Onata Aprile

After her parents’ bitter divorce, young Maisie Farange finds herself shuttled between her selfish mother and vain father, who value her only as a means for provoking each other. Maisie—solitary, observant, and wise beyond her years—is drawn into an increasingly entangled adult world of intrigue and sexual betrayal until she is finally compelled to choose her own future. Published in 1897 as Henry James was experimenting with narrative technique and fascinated by the idea of the child’s-eye view, What Maisie Knew is a subtle yet devastating portrayal of an innocent adrift in a corrupt society.

This story is a classic written by Henry James in 1897. I reviewed this book yesterday! It is a wonderful story but a difficult read due to the author’s writing style.

Escape #2

Tuesday’s Gone: A Frieda Klein Novel

In Tuesday’s Gone, a London social worker makes a routine home visit only to discover her client, Michelle Doyce, serving afternoon tea to a naked, decomposing corpse. With no clues as to the dead man’s identity, Chief Inspector Karlsson again calls upon Frieda for help. She discovers that the body belongs to Robert Poole, con man extraordinaire. But Frieda can’t shake the feeling that the past isn’t done with her yet. Did someone kill Poole to embroil her in the investigation? And if so, is Frieda herself the next victim?

A masterpiece of paranoia, Tuesday’s Gone draws readers inexorably into a fractured and faithless world as it brilliantly confirms Frieda Klein as a quintessential heroine for our times.

Both Escapes will include some bookish swag!

6 thoughts on “The Literary Blog Hop – June 22 – 26

  1. Not totally sure I would read either of these books. Both are intriguing stories, but I think they could be dark, and I’m not sure that’s what I want to read. AT LEAST, not right now — later, in a few months or so, maybe.

  2. Thanks for the giveaway 🙂 Have a great weekend and happy hopping!

  3. Thanks for being part of the hop. Your book choices sound great. Tuesday’s Gone sounds mysterious. I’ll check out your review – this may be one for the wishlist!
