Received My Copy Today, Did You?

Do you thoroughly enjoy a great book, yet not take the time to discover one?

If so, you are not alone.

An avid reader, I am not.  However, I could be.  When a novel offers a story that has depth and a variety of personalities in the characters, I can be consumed.  Not wanting to put it down and stealing time to discover what happens next. Every time I pose a question to myself.

“Why don’t I read more?”

I have yet to come up with an answer for that question.  When the story is over, on the shelf it goes.  As much as I insist another will take it’s place, time passes with no replacement.

So, this is why I am so excited about my package delivered to my door!

You know the old saying, “If you want something, you have to go out and get it, because it’s not going to come to you”?

Well, in this particular case, IT DID!

Recently, I was fortunate enough to be approved as member of the SheSpeaks Blogger Society @  SheSpeaks was launched in 2007 and is a community of women bloggers.  The website was formed with the goal to elevate and amplify women’s voices.

“I received this book for free from SheSpeaks.”

The package I received was the next novel I will be reading.  The first program I chose to become involved with is a book club featuring a novel not yet available for purchase.

The novel is “It’s Always The Husband” by Michele Campbell.

“It’s Always The Husband” has been reviewed to be “skillful and addictive”, “brilliant and twisting” as well as “intricately plotted”.  The novel is based around 3 ladies who were inseparable college friends and what happened twenty years later.

“It’s Always The Husband” is Michele Campbell’s debut novel and will become available May 16th.  However, you can reserve your copy now online at Amazon  or Barnes & Nobel.  Simply click on the links and you will be directed to make sure you get in on the thriller.

Here is where you can benefit.

From the reviews I have read, I know, this book will have me trying to steal a few minutes anytime I can to see what happens next.

Periodically, as I read, I will post brief updates to fill you in on my thoughts as I have them.  Of course, without giving too much information, as not to take away from your reading pleasure.

When I have finished reading, I will write a final review, which will be published here at Midwest Girl’s Dreams.  My book review will also be available at Barnes & Noble and  ( review links for both websites will be included in the article).

If receiving this novel (prior to sale date) FREE from SheSpeaks isn’t enough.

I have welcomed this great opportunity with open arms!  Not only do I get to be one of the limited group to experience this book early, I am using it as a tool to continue discovering great pieces of writing.

I have created a Project titled, “A Great Read Book Review” .  As other opportunities such as this one present themselves, I will inform you as I am today.  There will be categories, sub-categories, links and other important information within the project.  “A Great Read Book Review”  will be a resource for anyone wanting to get involved with community platforms or need that other great read.

My goal for this project is to have it become highly interactive.  Please share your comments, suggestions, questions and anything else that comes to mind.  I have high hopes for this project and see it being awesome!
