I may be a tad premature naming the book on the 22nd of the month, but unless some other book steeplechases across the book blogs in the next few days This Is The One for this month.
Six Stories has certainly caused a stir in the book blogging world, with most bloggers unanimous in their high opinion of it
Granted there was a really well organised blog tour promoting the book, but there was most definitely a buzz building up right from the start of the tour as more and more bloggers read it, reviewed it and shared their thoughts across social media.
Everyone was talking about it during and after they’d read it. Any blogger mention of the book set off a chain reaction.
