The Escape Book by Ivan Tapia
The Escape Book: Can you escape this book? - Ivan Tapia

Have you heard of the escape rooms? They are places where you go and by the choices you make you work your way through a type of maze to escape a room. This book is the same concept just in book form. You read a part of the book then by doing a puzzle or solving a riddle you figure out where to go next in the book,.

 

Some of the puzzles are really easy others are a bit harder. The book is kind of fun for the puzzle solver in all of us. The book did keep me entertained even if the story was a bit silly to me. 

 

I received this book from the Author or Publisher via Netgalley.com to read and review.

ESCAPE CLAWS
Escape Claws - Linda Reilly

Linda Reilly is one of my very favorite authors. And her newest book, the first installment of her Cat Lady Mysteries, ESCAPE CLAWS, was one of my most anticipated books of 2017. On. My. Goodness. It completely lived up to my expectations! Purrfection! ESCAPE CLAWS opens with an introduction to the Cast of Feline Characters. With a dozen cats in the story, this list is a wonderful and welcomed addition to the book. And Kudos to author Reilly for managing to give each cat its own distinct personality. From page one, I knew this was a tale I wanted to read. Not just the mystery, but the story of protagonist, Lara Caphart, coming back to her hometown of Whisker Jog (love it) to help her Aunt Fran not only with her eleven cats, but with herself. With bad knees, Fran Clarkson is moving slow, and not able to do as much for herself and her kitty kids. There is tension at the very beginning when Lara doesn’t get greeted very fondly by her aunt. However, both characters grow immensely from the first page to the last, and I can’t wait to see them grow even more throughout the series. The murder mystery in ESCAPE CLAWS is expertly handled by the author. Ms. Reilly truly knows how to keep her readers on their paws. From the discovery of the body, to the surprising reveal, I didn’t come close to guessing the killer. There is also a second mystery mixed into the story. Between the two of them, I was so entranced, reading for a couple of hours turned into “I’m not getting out of this chair until I’m finished”. Starting a new series is both thrilling and exciting. You go into it with high hopes. Well, worry not with the Cat Lady Mysteries. Once you start reading ESCAPE CLAWS, you’ll know you’ve found a series you’ll want to follow for many years to come!

"Oney: My Escape From Slavery" by Diana Rubino & Piper Huguley

 

My Thoughts....



This story will leave one with so many emotions in this well told historical fiction story about Oney.  These two authors really give  the readers quite a read [escaping from slavery]  where you will see good times and also horrible times that happened around Oney Judge as she seeks her freedom from a most powerful family of the United States. "Oney" is definitely one of those reads that will give you a lot to ponder over long after the read. I will also say this is one of those stories that you will have to be ready for because there is a little bit of it all as one can imagine from the title of the novel "Oney: My Escape From Slavery."

The Escape Book
The Escape Book: Can you escape this book? - Ivan Tapia

The Escape Book has the concept of an Escape Room, but in a book, how cool does that sound?

I've done a couple of escape rooms, and I'm proud to say my escape rate is at 100% (though twice really close with either 17 or 2 seconds left). I quite like them, and combining them with a book made me really curious, but slightly afraid also, because of course, I'd never read an escape room.

There's text until the main character reaches a puzzle, which you will then have to solve in order to know at what page you have to continue reading. In my electronic review copy, numbering was off, which made it harder to find the right pages. There was also the limitation that the solution to each and every puzzle is a number. While I understand, it would have been nice to have some more variation (which isn't thrown in until the very end). However, the story in between the puzzles is repetitive, vague and at times I wanted to smack her because she spends a lot of time pondering where she should be going through the maze.

A fun book for a rainy afternoon, but it couldn't really grasp the escape room feel.

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
