Review of the book by JD Holiday, Stories And Imaginings For The Reading Spot by Christina Giguere

Review of the book by JD Holiday, Stories And Imaginings For The Reading Spot by Christina Giguere
This book of short stories will take you from tears to laughter and back to tears again. J.D. Holiday brings a well-rounded composition of stories with compelling and timely subjects. I personally bought the story after reading an excerpt on the Cereal Authors’ blog. I had no idea what I was getting myself into emotionally as a reader. From her story “The Boy in The Leaves,” which deals with child abuse to “Inside,” that broaches the subject of PTSD. This book had me wanting to kill some characters while wishing to rescue others. This is what reading is all about!
J.D. Holiday manages to take readers on an emotional rollercoaster and manages to do this in short story form all without sacrificing description and character development. I highly recommend this book for anyone who is short on time but wants to get lost in a good story.
My favorite line: “We hold one another close in this, our last moment and kiss. Your goodbye is in our lips, good luck wishes shine in those robin’s egg blue eyes.” Thanks for the roller coaster ride JD Holiday!

A book review of Hidden Truth And Lies by Author & Book Reviewer Fran Lewis, In A Nut Shell!

Hidden Truth And Lies

Hidden Truth and Lies by Fran Lewis

 

 

Did you ever want to have revenge on those who have harmed you in some way? Reading Hidden Truth and Lies, I was able to feel a little substitute pleasure with me thoughts. I smiled through this collection of Edgar Allan Poe-like sci fi short stories. The author’s characters are vivid and fascinating  throughout these clever, dark and captivating stories of crimes and heinous choices. Fran Lewis is a superb storyteller. A quick, fun and delightful, (Yes, I said fun and delightful,) read! 5Stars!
