Did I Notice Your Book Bloghop






Good morning, and welcome to yet another fab bloghop, hosted by Alex J. Cavanaugh and Ciara Knight!

This hop is all about sharing the love for your fellow writers. Here are the rules:
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 or Ciara Knight 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.


Cool, huh? :D


I have noticed several excellent books recently, but this is my favourite:


Fifteen-year-old Oliver Grain begins his school year fighting off bullies, learning about the boy who committed suicide in his room, and trying to understand why his history teacher, Mr. Gordon, has taken such a personal interest in him.

Do you believe in ghosts? Do you believe you can make bullies simply disappear? Do you believe you can walk through walls?

Mr. Gordon tells Oliver: "When you truly believe anything is possible, you will be able to open doors where there were only walls." And one of those doors leads Oliver to Provex City, which puts him in far greater danger than he can possibly fathom.


It's hard to explain all the things I loved about Michael Pierce's book, because there is so much. The creativity, the characters, the creep factor, the absolute genius of every word Mr. Gordon says. It's just brilliant.

You can find Provex City on Goodreads here. :D


And as always, make sure to hop around to the other participating blogs (follow the link to Alex's blog above!) and find yourself some cool new reads!
