Book Review - Chris Tusa's "Dirty Little Angels"

I read Dirty Little Angels by Chris Tusa. It is about a girl named Hailey who is experiencing family troubles. Her parents are both out of work, and her brother, Cyrus, is spending time with an ex-con preacher named Moses. Moses wants to start a drive-through church, and Cyrus is helping him set it all up. Hailey has been thinking a lot on religion and on how she can save her family. Moses tells her that people have to go through bad times before they can be saved. Soon she comes to the idea…See More

Finishing up February and on to March

Yes, I finished North and South. This book went a lot quicker than Wives and Daughters. I still think it's going to be hard to get to my other novels if these classics take me so long. I think I just need to make more time for reading.Anyway, I just got another book to read called Lemon Tart by Josi Kilpack. It is borrowed from a friend, so I have to bump it up to top priority. I still hope to get to my other books though. In the meantime, I am going to be doing a review of North and South on…See More

I'm part of a team now

I am kind of excited about this, and kind of nervous too. I have a friend, Rachel, who has a book blog. There are multiple authors on her blog, and she invited me to be one of them. So I will now be posting book reviews on http://rachelsbooklist.blogspot.com/ I haven't posted anything on there yet, but I'm hoping to do my first review on Wives and Daughters by Elizabeth Gaskell. I have to finish the book first, so it may be a few weeks.… Continue

Halfway Through January

It is halfway through January and I haven't done too much reading. I blame the Nintendo DS I got for my "husband" for Christmas. I think I play it more than he does. I have started reading Wives and Daughters. So far it is pretty good. It just takes me awhile to read, because classic literature has a lot more words and depth than novels of today. I updated my Good Reads Widget on my page. The other one didn't work well on this network. Anyway, I do all my book reviews on Good Reads. So… Continue

Hi Amy, I want to introduce you to you my debut novel "A Circle of souls" which is a paranormal, murder, mystery, psychological thriller and a tale of justice and hope. I was wondering if you would like to review my book for your blog or sites such as Amazon. Do visit www.acircleofsouls.com to read more about the book. If you would like to read it I can mail an advance readers copy to you. Thanks for your time in advance.

Best regards

Early Endorsements for “A Circle of Souls”

Linda Fairstein, NYT Bestselling Author: "A fascinating debut - this novel takes the reader to the darkest places in the human soul, from a writer with the authenticity to lead us there. A stunning thriller and an important read."

Judge Judy Sheindlin, star of the Judge Judy Show: "The seminal work of this fine author kept me glued to my chair until the adventure was over and the mystery solved. A great read!"

Book Synopsis:

The sleepy town of Newbury, Connecticut, is shocked when a little girl is found brutally murdered. The town s top detective, perplexed by a complete lack of leads, calls in FBI agent Leia Bines, an expert in cases involving children.

Meanwhile, Dr. Peter Gram, a psychiatrist at Newbury s hospital, searches desperately for the cause of seven-year-old Naya Hastings devastating nightmares. Afraid that she might hurt herself in the midst of a torturous episode, Naya s parents have turned to the bright young doctor as their only hope.

The situations confronting Leia and Peter converge when Naya begins drawing chilling images of murder after being bombarded by the disturbing images in her dreams. Amazingly, her sketches are the only clues to the crime that has panicked Newbury residents. Against her better judgment, Leia explores the clues in Naya s crude drawings, only to set off an alarming chain of events.
In this stunning psychological thriller, innocence gives way to evil, and trust lies forgotten in a web of deceit, fear, and murder.

Hi,

My name is Chris Tusa, and I'm a writer from New Orleans. My debut novel, Dirty Little Angels, is now available, and I was hoping you might be willing to mention it on your blog (or consider it for review). If you'd like to review the book, I'd be glad to send you a copy (in e-book format). Let me know. I've included a summary of the novel below:

Dirty Little Angels
Set in the slums of New Orleans, among clusters of crack houses and abandoned buildings, Dirty Little Angels is the story of sixteen year old Hailey Trosclair. When the Trosclair family suffers a string of financial hardships and a miscarriage, Hailey finds herself looking to God to save her family. When her prayers go unanswered, Hailey puts her faith in Moses Watkins, a failed preacher and ex-con. Fascinated by Moses's lopsided view of religion, Hailey, and her brother Cyrus, begin spending time down at an abandoned bank that Moses plans to convert into a drive-through church. Gradually, though, Moses's twisted religious beliefs become increasingly more violent, and Hailey and Cyrus soon find themselves trapped in a world of danger and fear from which there may be no escape.

If you'd like to read the first chapter before you commit, feel free to visit my web site:

Thanks so much,
Chris

I just finished reading A Modest Proposal by Michele Ashman Bell. I literally stayed up all night to read it all. I think I might be crazy. I liked it a lot, I hardly ever will read all night to finish a book. The last time I did this was for Twilight. I think I am correct in thinking this will be the first in a series. Now I am wondering when the next one is coming out. I thought it a bit predictable at times, but I am a sap for romance novels so I will take what I can get.

Oh, I wanted lip action! BUT... the intensity of them standing in the rain, not being able to because of the quarantine, or whatever it was... I loved that. It was just so emtionally charged or something. The book's ending isn't too great because she died before she could actually finish it.

You'll have to let me after you read the book Wives and Daughters, what you thought. I love both the book and the movie. Especially the ending of the movie....
