What are you reading this weekend?

I am reading LuAnne Turnage’s “The End Begins”

Blurb-

There is an unseen world. A world not often made visible to the human eye. In this unseen world, demons and angels exist and fight each other for the human soul. As the days grow darker and the end times grow closer, the humans grow colder to what is good and what is evil.
Come and walk for a short time, if you dare, in the shoes of angels and possessions of the demons.
In this world, my friends, there is a battle on for souls.
So come nearer, and you will step into a world of government conspiracy. But, be warned, the demons are sneaky, the angels are protective, and normal everyday humans are still unaware.
So come for a ride, my friends, and see if the veil is lifted from your eyes

 I reviewed Eva Pasco’s new book.

5 stars- I shall reread this story again and again
Toni Home Perm, Flexible Flyer Snow Sled, Hula Hoop, Mercurochrome, Fishnet Stockings, Beatles, Mohair, Go-Go Boots, Aluminum Christmas Tree…and, the beat goes on.
Reading this book filled me with nostalgia and it certainly brought a smile to my dial! It is funny that despite cultural differences and et al, most of us seem to go through similar experiences that makes us go all teary or giggle or turn pink.
This is the second book of Eva Pasco that I have read. Both are different but very engaging books. I remembered a lot of things mentioned as I read the pages… I really liked that a lot. Also reading this book helped me to understand the author better and the way she looks at life and self and for that reason, I can only thank the author for being so delightful and honest.

Gritty, Brutal, Funny… A brilliant MUST READ!!!

 

After reading “The Killing of John, John and John”, I jumped on the offer to review this new story by Elizabeth O’Neill. I’ve come to the conclusion that this author has a knack for writing thought provoking brutally honest stories situated around Scotland’s low socio economic population.
This story made me cringe in my seat because it is bleak, depressing, yet the black incredibly dry humor makes you smile, despite the depressing elements. Why depressing? It is because, wherever we live, we have an impoverished community that battles with homelessness, alcoholism, domestic violence and mental health issues somewhere near us.
Her characters are solid and unforgettable. The plot is carefully crafted and executed. Would I read another story by this author….Yes, definitely. She makes me look at my community with compassion.

I reviewed Lynn Michaels’ new story

I think Devon and Jason’s story is a refreshing MM romance story with a strong hint of modern Gothic fairy tale fiction elements.
Although “Want You Mad” is a very short story, it stirred strong emotions in me and left me thinking about the characters all through the night and into the next day. What can I say? I am impressed with the author’s skills and imagination because I loved experiencing these whimsical moments.
Even the title told me a lot about the story and drew me into it, just like an old fairy tale! How cool is that! This story was a gateway into the unconscious… our collective unconscious.
The protagonist was a two faced, lying, manipulating man. Unlike in an old fairy tale, Michaels’ story cleverly greyed the boundaries in the story by making the protagonist appear to be a villain. Actually he was a villain for a short while… This character had so much Gothic elements that his archetype was screaming for my unconscious…so he became unforgettable for me by achieving the ultimate fallible wounded hero.
Like many fairy tale stories this story brings our attention to making a terrible mistake with awful consequences but it stops there and challenges the reader with a twist. Unlike the goriness of a Gothic or Grimm Brothers like story, there is no physical gore here….just merely letting the reader see another type of goriness…emotional, psychological, dark and gloomy goriness through Devon’s eyes.
Then comes James who outsmarts our lovable villain Devon. At the end of the story, Devon outsmarts the formula of average fairy tales and our expectations, suddenly becoming the selfless hero, proving that James was right all along and making us sigh with relief. He showed me the old fashioned yet still so powerful “triumph of the weak and small over the mighty.” The unspoken but strong feeling of Divine Intervention was also beautiful. This story was a wonderful blend of sadness, darkness and situational futility, yet with being selfless comes the great glorious happy ending.
