Announcing Underground Book Reviews Novel of the Year!March 6, 2017
We’re excited to announce the top two books from our previous year of reviewing. The competition was stiff. We had over 700 submissions and 50+ reviews. After our stringent Pitch Perfect Pick selection, and careful review process, our judges had the monumental task of choosing between these 13 contenders for the Editor’s Choice award, and our readers voted on our Reader’s Choice award. Don’t miss these two must-read books.
1,803 Things presents itself as a collection of thoughts meant to expand your thinking. An introduction at the beginning of the book explains that as people get older, their thoughts become more repetitive and narrowed. 1,803 Things is meant to broaden the reader’s thinking through humor, shock, and discomfort. The things themselves are not organized in any particular order, nor is the book divided into chapters or sections. Instead, it provides a stream of consciousness experience for the reader as they weave their way through the inner workings of a set of unique and curious minds. The collection of thoughts is at times both hilarious and poignant, staying with the reader long after they have finished reading.
A very amusing and nostalgic memoir style story, which will transport the reader right back to the 1970’s. Gabbie Spenneman thought she had left her nightmarish high school days behind her, but then she receives an invitation to the dreaded high school reunion. This forces her to recount her awkward teenage years, inviting the reader into a hilarious, cringe-inducing and poignant trip down memory lane.
There are several sales and giveaways this week, including UBR’s very own Renee Miller. Catch her newest title, MAD, on sale for only 99 cents and on Kindle Countdown: “Insanity is in the eye of the beholder…”
Pitch Perfect Pick Winner
A phone call in the small hours after midnight lands Dallas PI Ed Earl Burch in a lethal game where nobody can be trusted and everybody wants him dead. That includes the caller, an old flame with a violent temper and a terminal knack for larceny and betrayal.
