Giveaway: The Publicist by Christina George


Thanks to iRead Book Tours I get to offer a giveaway of The Publicist and Shelf Life by Christina George.

My Thoughts on The Publicist, Book One:
Christina George writes in a manner that is very easy to read.  Her book is the first that I've read about the publishing industry.  As an avid reader, I would love to know if the book resembles the real-life industry.  She has intrigued me.  As the cover indicates, there is a sexy element to the story; however, the novel is more about Kate's life as a publicist than a sex story, which I appreciate.  I enjoy learning about the character and the plot versus having explicit sex scenes. The story follows Kate's journey with several books published by her publishing house.  Some book journeys are easy and some definitely are very trying.

At one point in the book, I wanted to throw it across the room and then retrieve it to find out what happened to Kate.  I love books that make me feel this way.  To me, that means the author has a great conflict/climax going on.

Try it.  I think you'll like it.

Thanks so much for this review. I really appreciate it! I love that you wanted to toss the book. I 100% get that. I have had that happen with books & TV shows, too. I get so frustrated and then end up crawling back to see how it ends :-)
