Kirkus Reviews is honest and cantankerous. It generally isn't seen by the public and authors seem to have a love-hate relationship with the publication.
I subscribe to it online and look forward to their jabs and "borrow or buy it" feature along with honest accolades and praise for the worthy ones.
This latest article in Kirkus appealed to me. How many of us select a book to assuage a mood? Here's a new book that is touted to be
great for what ails us.
The Kirkus Opinion of The Novel Cure:
Ella Berthoud and Susan Elderkin’s The Novel Cure: From Abandonment to Zestlessness: 751 Books to Cure What Ails You is something to behold: an encyclopedia of maladies both spiritual and physical; under each malady’s heading, the writers suggest books that will help you overcome that particular problem. Feeling indecisive? There’s a book for that. Caring for someone with cancer? These ladies know what you should be reading.
Eclectic and infectious, The Novel Cure is one of the most revealing and bracing books about books to come along in some time.
I love anything that has to do with books..and books that will help my mood or soften a stressful situation, I'm there.
