Did I Notice Your Book?





Post about a book you’ve noticed. You can choose a book that you’ve read, something you saw on a blog or social media site, Goodreads, or a sales website. Anything that caught your eye because of a great cover, blurb or reviews, but DON’T tell the author that their book has been noticed. Instead, shout out on social media sites, and encourage others to do the same, until the author finds his/her book. 

Leave a blog comment at Ninja Captain Alex’s BLOG or Ciara Knight’sBLOG when the author finds their book. 

Only two rules: 
1) You can’t post about your own book. 
2) The book shouldn’t be on the New York Times or USA Today bestseller list. 
This is your chance to shout out about a book that might not have been noticed by others. 



Head on over to Alex's or Ciara's to check out all the other participants.


This book came up as one people bought along with some of my other favorites on Amazon.  It really caught my attention with its description.

The Crown of Embers by Rae Carson


She does not know what awaits her at the enemy's gate.

Elisa is a hero. She led her people to victory over a terrifying, sorcerous army. Her place as the country's ruler should be secure. But it isn't.

Her enemies come at her like ghosts in a dream, from both foreign realms and within her own court. And her destiny as the chosen one has not yet been fulfilled.

To conquer the power she bears once and for all, Elisa must follow the trail of long-forgotten--and forbidden--clues from the deep, undiscovered catacombs of her own city to the treacherous seas. With her goes a one-eyed spy, a traitor, and the man who--despite everything--she is falling in love with.

If she's lucky, she will return from this journey. But there will be a cost.

****

It gets good ratings on both Amazon and Goodreads.  I think it is the second book in a series, so I guess I'll have to read the first one too. :)

p.s. I'll be posting my Knights of MicroFiction entry later today.

  7. Love the cover and blurb so I ran over to amazon and did see it was the second book, but it sounds as though you didn't need to read the first one first.
