We Asked Walter Gragg, ThrillerFest Debut Author: What Would You Read On Death Row?

in Thrillers by
Walter Gragg ThrillerFest 2017 The Red Line

Today’s featured ThrillerFest 2017 debut author is Walter Gragg. Scroll down to read more about his new novel, The Red Line, and which thriller he chose to be the last he will ever read! BookTrib: If you were on death row, what would be your last read? And why?  Walter Gragg: Catch-22. I was hooked by the end of the first page of this incredibly satirical, yet deeply layered, novel. Consistently rated one of the top 100 books of the 20th Century, Heller’s story is unlike anything ever written. The unique way in which the story is presented makes the absolute insanity of not just the events the airmen find themselves facing, but the insanity of the world itself, come…

in Fiction by

There’s nothing like laying out beside a pool on a 90 degree day and enjoying a good book. Or maybe blasting the air conditioner and lounging on the couch is more your summer scene.

Heat Index: 5 Hot New Books that Use Food and Drinks as Supporting Characters

in Fiction by

There’s nothing like food and drinks to bring a group of people together, whether it’s a special occasion, a holiday or good ol’ fashion picnic, at the heart of it all is the food we eat and the cocktails we drink. So it makes sense that the incorporation of food and drinks in the thing we love most, books, would be a must. Not only do the characters in these stories rely on food to get them through their day, but the delicious cocktails and fine cuisine take on a life all its own within the pages of these five hot new books and ultimately become the supporting characters in each novel. Sweetbitter: A Novel, Stephanie Danler (Knopf, May 24, 2016) “Gorgeous,…

Who Needs Sleep? The Books That are Keeping Us Awake All Night Long

in Romance by

The other day I sent an email to one of my BookTrib editors (and fellow writer), Beth. “UMM I started reading The Crossfire Series by Sylvia Day and I can’t stop,” it read. “I only got two hours of sleep last night!” After she chastised me for just now discovering the sexiness that is Crossfire, Beth and I commiserated over what it’s like to stay up until dawn because we’re physically unable to put a book down. Sometimes it feels like we go into a trance while reading, the rest of the world fading away until the birds chirping outside remind us that an entire night has gone by. Other times we’re perfectly aware of the time, but we just don’t…
