BLOG TOUR, REVIEW & #GIVEAWAY - The Company Files The Good Man by Gabriel Valjan
The Company Files: The Good Man (Book 1) - Gabriel Valjan

Jack Marshall had served with Walker during the war, and now they work for The Company in postwar Vienna. With the help of Leslie, an analyst who worked undercover gathering intelligence from Hitler’s inner circle, they are tasked to do the inconceivable: recruit former Nazis with knowledge that can help the U.S. in the atomic race. But someone else is looking for these men. And when he finds them, he does not leave them alive.

 

In this tale of historical noir, of corruption and deceit, no one is who they say they are. Who is The Good Man in a world where an enemy may be a friend, an ally the enemy, and governments deny everything?

It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time
It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time - Kylie Scott
I Picked Up This Book Because: Because of the title..and my enjoyment of the author’s other works

The Characters:

Adele Reid:
Peter “Pete” Gallagher:
Andrew: Adele’s Dad, Shanti: Adele’s Stepmother, Adele’s best friend, starts with an M

The Story:

Adele has been in love with Pete since she was sixteen. The problem is Pete is around thirteen years older than her. The bigger problem is Pete lovers her too. She’s his best friend, his “person” and it is ruined once Adele turns eighteen and decides she is old enough. A clumsy and thwarted attempt at seduction separates them for seven years. Now Adele’s dad, who is also Pete’s business partner, is getting married and Adele is forced into Pete’s home and back into his heart.

Their reunion was rough, funny and touching. I feel like I could tell Pete loved Adele throughout the book but tried really hard to do what is “right”. (view spoiler)

Paperback Crush
Paperback Crush: The Totally Radical History Of 80’s and 90’s Teen Fiction - Gabrielle Moss

Pop Sugar 2019 Challenge prompts:

Book that makes you nostalgic 

Book without chapters or unusual chapters (advanced prompt)

 

What an amazing romp through nostalgia! This book was incredibly well researched and full of details. It mentioned series I didn't even know existed, as well as the huge hits. Full color. Dozens of book covers. Interviews with some of the authors. Even a piece on the person that painted all the Baby-sitters Club covers. If you want to remember your youth, check this out.

Possible IRL book club pick
How to Be a Good Creature: A Memoir in Thirteen Animals - Sy Montgomery,Rebecca Green

I was worried that the book club I'd attended had forgotten about me because I had to miss what would be been my second meeting, but I recently got an email about choosing between various books for their February meeting. Based on folks' responses, odds are good that the next book we'll be discussing is this one. I requested a copy via ILL so I could get started on it.

 

I like that it's short, and it sounds interesting, but I'm a little worried that it will include the sorts of animal stories that will make me cry.
