Captive by Claudine Dumont

Hello friends! Hope you are all reading really good books. I’ve been enjoying a hot, steamy summer in my part of the world and haven’t felt very motivated to write reviews. However, I’ve been obsessively experimenting with images and videos. Back to posting soon!

NOTE: I received a copy of Captive with much thanks to House of Anansi Press, but this in no way influenced the thoughts and opinions expressed in my review.

    Oooh… this sounds good. I want to read it right now. 🙂
    And, I love what you did with the video thingy. It made your review feel atmospheric.
    Have a nice break! And, maybe send some of that warm weather this way (but, not too much)!

      Thank you for the compliment! We are still enjoying a lot of hot weather in Ontario and I don’t mind after the long winter.

        I meant to tell you that I read Miss Emily and loved it. So, thanks for sending it! I will probably put up a post about it, but I’m kind of behind right now (because of summer), so it might take a while. 🙂

    This is a great review format; very appealing. And the book sounds pretty good, too. 🙂

      I may be a little bored with the traditional review format right now. But maybe because it’s summer and all I want to do is sit outside and read.

    The book sounds really good.

    I like really like what you have done with those images and the slideshow. It seems that the slides all have muted shades yet they are attention grabbling. The effect works well.

      Thanks for your comments! I want to try different ways of talking about the books I’ve read other than just writing reviews, but not sure how to go about it.

    Interesting review style! I was dubious when I saw it was pictures because I haven’t really taken to any of the new, visual social media platforms, but I really liked it. It added some great atmosphere to your review 🙂

    I just finished reading this, and I loved it. I also liked the ending – I thought it made sense that it ended so abruptly (even though I could have read more of it). The idea for the end seems a bit extreme, but I also can’t help but wonder if it might be a good idea.
    I was also surprised by how much I came to care about what happened to the characters. At first, I didn’t think I was going to like Emma much. It’s amazing that she could have a realistic character turn-around in such a short book.

      Oh wow, I’m so glad somebody else has read this book because it was so good. I agree that the idea for ending was extreme, but plausible. Did you imagine yourself in their situation? I thought about it a lot reading the story what would it would be like.
