Anyone can take part, by just doing the following:

Grab your current read.

Open to a random page.

  1. Share a couple of  “teaser” sentences, from somewhere on that page.
  2. Be careful not to share “spoiler” sentences.
  3. Remember to share the title and author too.
  4. Head on over to ‘should be reading’ and leave a link to your post, so that others can share it and you can share other people’s.

‘ZAREMBA, or Love and the Rule of Law’ by MICHELLE GRANAS

So as not to show any spoilers I have not included a synopsis, however, if you want to find out more about the story, just click on the book image, or to read more about both book and author go here.

If you don’t really want to read any major spoilers, then you can tease yourself a little more, by reading the first few lines of the story … here.

They drove for a long way in silence, Cordelia only vaguely aware of the passing of landmarks, of people standing at bus stops, of cars and trucks and trees and the thickening buildings, the high-rises.

And also, thought Cordelia with a flash of disquieting intuition, you are excited by danger – some part of you likes it – but as she couldn’t command him to stay in the car, there was nothing to do but follow him across the parking lot and into the building.

As this was an author invitation to read and review, a complimentary Kindle download of ‘Zaremba or Love and the Rule of Law’, was gifted to me, by its author Michelle Granas.

This will in no way influence any comments I may express about the book, in any blog articles I may post. Any thoughts or comments will be my own personal opinion and I am in no way being monetarily compensated for this, or any other article.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.

  • Ooh an intriguing teaser…. What is she going to find across the parking lot I wonder? It is lovely when you get gifted a new book by an author isn’t it. My emails contained a very interesting looking request for a review so another one on my pile today!

    • Hi Cleo,

      I am still not sure exactly where this story is heading, although it is quite a ‘chunkster’ of a book and I am only a short way into it so far and thoroughly enjoying the descriptive writing and interactions between the characters.

      Most of my review requests seem to come directly from the authors and it is very seldom that I am contacted by a publisher. It does mean that my mailbox is perhaps not always as full as those of some of my fellow bloggers, however ‘steady as she goes’, is alright by me.

      I hope that your latest request offers some interesting reading and enjoy the rest of your week.

    • Hi Tracy,

      I generally try not to check out other reviews of a book, before I have finished reading it for myself and organising my own thoughts. However within my own nucleus of regular contact bloggers that can be quite tricky, so I will generally be guided by those reviews I trust, obviously including your own.

      So far I am thoroughly enjoying the descriptive and observational dialogue, and the interaction between the various characters is excellent, although I am not sure that I like all of them!

      I have so little free time to read just lately, that it is all proving to be a bit of a juggling act, so I can see ‘Zaremba’ taking some time to actually finish, but so far so good!

      Thanks for stopping by, I always appreciate your comments and I hope that all is well with you.

    • Hi Kathy,

      This book isn’t really classified in any single genre, so I suppose that Polish Literary Fiction wuld be the most appropriate way to describe it.

      There are obviously the young shoots of a love story bubbling away under the surface, although I don’t think that is going to be anything traditional or too ‘soppy’.

      The corruption and abuse of power in politics seems to feature quite heavily and there are some excellent character connections and observations going on in the background.

      Difficult to rationalise and describe, this is an intriguing storyline and very well written so far.

      Thanks for the lovely comments, I always appreciate them.

    • Hi,

      Let’s just say that she is looking out for the interests and welfare of the other person, although she is not yet convinced that it is really the right thing to do!

      I am only a short way into this lengthy and complex story, however it is shaping up nicely so far.

      Thanks for taking the time to stop by, I always appreciate the comments you leave.
