It's time for another Ross' Rad Reads Award! I told you I would use my new award for books I read that I heard about through or were written by people I know. Well I've got a great one. The lovely Kelly Breakey had a blog contest recently, and I won! For my prize, she sent me a copy of Gods In Alabama. I had never heard of it, or the author, Joshilyn Jackson.
I already had a tall To Be Read pile, so I threw it on top. There were others ahead of it, and I don't have that much time to read. But one day, after a very hard week with a sick child, my husband suggested I go to the beach for the day to relax. I decided that was an excellent idea. I threw a chair in the back of my car and grabbed Gods in Alabama. It seemed a good beach read.
This was one of those books I could not stand to put down and did not want to see end. I LOVED it! I stayed up 'till the wee hours of the morning trying to finish it. Eventually, I had to turn out the light, but I picked it up the next day and eagerly read the last few chapters.
This is an amazing debut novel. I highly recommend it. And I cannot wait to read more of Jackson's work...
