Review of Robinson’s Dream by Mark Lages

Hi, readers! ❀ Look at this 3 posts in one week! Proud of me! ❀ hope you’re all doing well! I just finished the most wonderful story, so I thought I would share my thoughts about it with you. πŸ™‚

My most recent read is…

Robinson’s Dream by Mark Lages

OMG. Let’s all just enjoy that beautiful cover for a moment. It’s so pretty!

Blurb:

Robinson Cahill is a writer. His wife, Martha, is an attorney, and the two of them have a problem. Their nineteen-year-old son has gone too far, committing a serious crime. Robinson and Martha learn about the crime, and they’re not sure what to do. They decide it would be prudent to sleep on the matter before talking to their son. Robinson goes to bed that night and falls into a dream odyssey of thought-provoking memories and fantasies. This remarkable novel-length dream spurs his subconscious wisdom, becoming the inspiration behind the words he has with his son the next day.

So what did I think of this novel?

4 stars!

Here’s my review. πŸ™‚ I also shared over on Amazon and Goodreads:

This is my fourth novel by Mark Lages, and it did not disappoint! πŸ™‚ I loved it!

In this novel, a couple discovers that their son has committed a serious crime, and they have to decide what to do. Most of the novel is spent in, you guessed it, Robinson’s dream. They decided to sleep on the matter before acting, and this book is his subconscious working through it. πŸ™‚

“Robinson’s Dream” is a wonderful and imaginative story. It’s a very entertaining and thought-provoking novel. Like Mark’s other novel’s I’ve read. πŸ™‚ There’s a decent amount of humor sprinkled in, too, which I loved.

Mark does a great job of creating a surreal, dream-like feel to the book. It reminded me a lot of the classic stories, “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” and “Through the Looking Glass.”

I loved this book and I highly recommend it for fans of Mark’s other books and anyone who loves a good story.

πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

So what’s next on my reading list? Well, I’m listening to the Shades of Magic trilogy by V.E. Schwab on Audible, and I’m reading an anthology of short stories called Sideshow complied by Samie Sands. I just finished the first of the short stories in it, and it was great.

I hope everyone is staying safe and enjoying good books! I’ll be back soon! Happy Reading, everyone! Love Lennie! ❀

Two Book Reviews!

Good morning, my blog followers! Check it out! Second post in a week! Maybe I’ll get this thing back on track. πŸ™‚ I’m going to try to be all positive about it. ❀ I hope everyone is doing okay and staying healthy with all the covid-19 and social isolation stuff.

I’m bored of just going to work and home, I miss going to see my mom and sister, and I’ve been struggling very drepressed days. But overall, I’m doing okay. I’ve been playing Dungeons and Dragons with my sister and some of her friends with internet calls. It’s been fun so far, and I think it’s helping with the social part.

Also, I get to pretend I’m a really big half-orc who doesn’t like to fight, but will totally destroy monsters if they are mean to his sister. Or his pet squirrel. lol. Fun stuff.

Anyway! Let’s move on to today’s post…. book reviews! I’ve read a couple of good short stories, so I thought I’d share about them with you all! πŸ™‚

My first review is of a neat little flash fiction story:

Treehouse by J. Sharpe

A treehouse isn’t always a safe place to play!

When Grace is driving on the highway with two screaming eight-year-olds in the back seat, she’s frustrated to say the least. So when she sees a sign for a Rest Area, she’s more than happy to pull over. The boys see the treehouse first. And when they climb its ladder, it’s already too late.
Then the screaming begins.

Treehouse is a short suspense/horror story. An introduction to the works of award nominee and bestselling author J. Sharpe.

Download the book now, if you dare.

❀ Bonus points! It’s free! ❀ Free books is always something I can get behind. πŸ™‚

My rating: 4 stars!

And my review:


I really enjoyed this little story. πŸ™‚ A great little example of flash fiction. Just long enough to enjoy the story and to want to read more books by J. Sharpe. I highly recommend. πŸ™‚

It’s not a very big review, but it’s honest! πŸ™‚

And my other book is a collection of flash fiction! One of my favorite things to read. And write! So when I find them for free, I’ll have to get them and give them a try. Yep! This one is FREE too!

20 Dark, Scary and Sad Short Stories by A.A. Wray

Blurb: 20 dark, scary and sad short stories to scare you, depress you and make you feel unsettled inside.

My rating: 3 stars

And my review:


Good stories


Like almost any collection of stories, these were hit and miss. Some where awesome. Some were good. And some I just didn’t get or like. But overall, it was a nice collection of stories. A good pick for a lover of flash fiction.

I hope you all check out these two books. πŸ™‚ Both are nice, quick reads, and great for us horror lovers.

I’ll try and post again tomorrow, but no promises, lol. We know I’m not great with that. I’m working on a bind up collection of my first 3 holiday horror stories, to be released this weekend, and I’m working on my next Holiday Horrors installement: The Mad Mother. And the next Spooky Shorts is coming up soon, so keep an eye out for updates here, or follow me on Amazon and Goodreads.

Happy Reading, everyone! Stay healthy and safe! Love, Lennie! ❀

Review of The Daughter

Oh my god, you guys! I’m so excited! I finally got a day off from my two day jobs, so I can finally focus on my writing and get some creative word done. πŸ™‚ I’ve got my coffee going. I’ve got my drafts all set up for either writing or editing. And I have my background noise shows playing on the TV. It about 9:30 in the morning where I am, so I’m planning on pretending that writing is my 9 to 5 job. πŸ™‚

Is it nerdy that that is my idea of fun? arranging my day of social distancing like I’m a full-time author? Probably. But it’s still fun. I need to work on my writing output and routine anyway.

So! To kick off my day of writing, I’m working on this blog post. Just easing myself into the work before I get to the gritty, time consuming task of handwriting out a first daft. πŸ™‚ It’s actually really fun! It just takes way longer than typing. πŸ™‚

Today’s post is obviously a review. πŸ™‚ Of…

The Daughter by Lucy Dawson

This book, ya’ll! It was great. So, so great. I loved it so much. πŸ™‚ My rating is…

4 Very Happy Stars

Would you like to see the blurb of the book? πŸ™‚

Here you go!

You lost your daughter. You will never forgive yourself. And now someone’s determined to make you pay…
Seventeen years ago, something happened to Jess’s daughter Beth. The memory of it still makes her blood run cold. Jess has tried everything to make peace with that day, and the part she played in what happened. It was only a brief moment of desire… but she’ll pay for it with a lifetime of guilt.

To distance herself from the mistakes of the past, Jess has moved away and started over with her family. But when terrifying things begin happening in her new home, seemingly connected to what happened to Beth, Jess knows that her past has finally caught up with her. Somebody feels Jess hasn’t paid enough, and is determined to make her suffer for the secrets she’s kept all these years.

Sounds fascinating, doesn’t it? ❀ It really is! I finished it in just a few days listening to it on audible. You all know just how much I freaking LOVE audible, right? I can read a book while driving, or exercising, or working. It’s the best. ❀

Anyway! Review time! I posted my review to Goodreads too, and I should probably go out it over on audible in a minute. Here’s my review! ❀

Omg. This was SUCH a great book, and I loved it so much. The story was great in itself, but the emotions of the characters was where it gets really awesome. The first part of the book was especially hard to read/listen to. Not because it was bad. “The Daughter” was a wonderful book. It was just because parts of it were just so freaking SAD!

I do a lot of my listening/reading at work since I have a day job that allows me to listen to books or music. (Yay for stocking jobs!) And I was trying so, so hard not to cry while I was working. I mean that funeral scene where Ben was speaking? Yeah, I just about lost it.

Which would not have been good. I would not have liked to explain to my co-workers why I was crying while stocking freaking rice and flour and stuff. Glad I didn’t cry!

anyway! I loved this! I loved the characters, and the narrator did an excellent job. πŸ™‚

The mystery of who was doing stuff was great too, and I was guessing and wondering right up until the very end. πŸ™‚ I didn’t expect that ending, but I rarely do. I’m not great at guessing the plot twists or baddies in mysteries. Which is why they are so much fun for me to listen to. My audible app is absolutely FULL of mysteries and thrillers.

And I highly recommend this one. I think I have another couple of Lucy’s books and I’m very excited to give them a try soon!

You know, I’m actually surprised by how long that review was! A lot of my reviews end up being just a line or two, because I do so much of my reading right before bed, and I’m super tired by the time I finish something that I can only must up the energy to go: “I liked it!”

Is that sad?

I don’t know. But I do know you should totally pick up a copy of The Daughter. πŸ™‚ You can follow the link and get a copy in kindle, audible, or paperback. I love paperbacks, but I highly recommend the audiobook. The narrator did such a great job!

Happy Reading everyone! I’ll be back again soon. Hopefully tomorrow. (Fingers crossed!) I want to give an update on how my 9 to 5 experiment went. Or it might be long! Depends on how I’m feeling, but right now I’m feeling very productive!

Love, Lennie! ❀

Horror Story Reviews!

Hello, readers and blog followers. πŸ™‚ It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Honestly, I’m just really bad at keeping a decent schedule for this things, aren’t I? Ugh. What can I say? Adulting is hard. It’s not a very good excuse, but it’s true.

Anyway!

I have a couple of short horror stories I read recently, and I thought you all might be interested in them. πŸ™‚

The first one is…

Pretty When You Sleep: A Creepy Little Bedtime Story

This thing is short, (because of course it is! I love reading short stories!) but boy is it terrifying! Seriously. I was so, so creeped out by this.

My rating: 5 stars! πŸ™‚ My review for Goodreads was super short, just like the book. πŸ™‚ Short, but completely terrifying. Just my kind of story! πŸ™‚ See? That was the whole review. I was super tired when I wrote it, so it didn’t get very complex did it? But really, it is so worth a read! And it’s only $0.99! You’ve got a dollar to spare, right? ❀

Heck, while you’re at it, grab a few of my books too! I have a cat to feed! ❀

I also read another short story. This one was only about 994, so it’s technically flash fiction. And ya’ll know I love flash fiction!

This one was….

A Charming Neighbour

It’s free on Amazon right now, which is always a plus! Who doesn’t like free stuff! ❀ I won’t give anything away, since It’s only about a thousand words, but I will say that I loved it. Maybe not as much as “Pretty When You Sleep” but this was still great.

5 stars!

My review from Goodreads is once again, really tiny. Just three words, in fact: I loved this! Is that weird? That sometimes I only do a few words on book reviews? I can’t help it. I do a lot of my reading right before bed, and I get really tired. I do work two day jobs after all. 3 if you coun’t writing, which totally counts. But sometimes, I’m just too tired to right much more than a very basic thought.

Doesn’t mean that I didn’t love the heck out of it. Just that I need a more manageable sleeping and working schedule. lol.

Thanks for reading! I’ll try to be back soon with more reviews and other bookish stuff, but no promises! Happy Reading! Love, Lennie! ❀

Review of Lovestory By James Patrick Kelly!

Hi, everyone! I hope ya’ll are having great, bookish adventures. I know I am!

How am I doing today? Good! I feel really productive today! I went to both my day jobs today, and I even got two extra hours of work, so that’s nice. I do wish I could write full time, but I’m just not making enough money with it to stop my day jobs. Until I am, I’ll go to work!

I am pretty lucky to have my two day jobs though, one is stocking, so I can listen to audiobooks while I work. And the other job is a cashier at a small store. So when there aren’t any customers that need help I can write, or read, or watch hulu. I end up watching TV a lot. And it’s a bit of a problem to be honest.

At the stocking job, I managed to finish a story I’ve been listening to. And That will be the book I’ll be reviewing in a minute. πŸ™‚ At the cashier job, I hand wrote about 6 or 7 pages on a story I’m working on. So that was awesome. I’ve been reading about how much more productive it can be for writers to handwrite first drafts, and I think there’s something to it. I also found out that I’m a lot more productive if I leave my laptop at home, and put my phone in another room in the bottom of my backpack. It was a learning day for me!

Maybe I’ll start leaving my phone and computer at home, and I’ll just take my notebook and pencils to work. It’s food for thought! I just feel really productive and proud of myself today, so I just had to share that!

Now! Onward to my review!

Like I said, I finished reading/listening to this story early this morning at work. And I really, really liked it. I picked it up for FREE on Audible, so that was fun! Ya’ll know that I am ALL about free books! Especially free audiobooks.

I listened to

Lovestory by James Patrick Kelly

I give it 4 stars!

Here’s the blurb for it:

Imagine a race of marsupial-like aliens who have not two, but three sexes: father, birth-mother, and nurture-mother. The difficulties of married life are further complicated by adding another partner, but this culture has worked out its own unique solution. The arrival of a new race of space-faring aliens, however, will change everything.

Author James Patrick Kelly is a two-time winner of the Hugo Award and a 2007 Nebula Award winner. His stories appear frequently inΒ Asimov’s Science Fiction, and he writes the magazine’s “On the Net” column.Β Publishers WeeklyΒ has called him “a meticulous craftsman in the demanding short-story form”.

It was a bit odd at first, but I really loved it. It had so much emotion for such a short story. It’s only about an hour long, but it packs such a punch. I really liked how it did points of views from each of them. The mother, the father, and the “Mam”, the nurture mother. I liked the father’s point of view best, but it was all really good.

plus, bonus points for the author narrating his own story! it adds so much depth to the story. It’s a story about aliens, yes. But it’s so a sweet story about love and family. And it was great. I so highly recommend it.

again, 4 stars!

πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

I’ve listened to a few other stories by James Patrick Kelly so far, and I’ve really liked most of them. πŸ™‚ He’s got a good bit for free and lots of other stories that are only about 2 dollars or so. So I highly recommend you check him out if you like audiobooks. He even adds little notes to the beginning and end of his stories, where he talks about how the stories came to be. It adds a really fun, nice, and personal touch to the stories.

here’s a link to his books over on audible.com!

https://www.audible.com/search?searchAuthor=James+Patrick+Kelly

Thanks for reading, everyone! Hope you liked my rambling little review! I’ll try and share another review tomorrow. I’ve been reading a collection of flash fiction, so I might finish that and share my thoughts on it. πŸ˜€ I freaking love flash fiction. I mean, I’d have to right? Since I do write it after all. ❀

Happy Reading, Everyone!

Love, Lennie! ❀

Sunday Spotlight and Book Review!

Hello, blog followers and fans! I hope everyone is doing great! I have a treat for ya’ll! An author spotlight! and a review of one of the author’s stories. πŸ™‚ Today, I’ve picked…

Sarah Pinborough

πŸ™‚ I just finished Zombie Apocalypse Diary Entry #1, so it seemed right. Here’s a bit about her from her Goodreads page.

Sarah Pinborough is the NYT bestselling and Sunday Times #1 Bestselling author of ‘Behind Her Eyes’ which has sold in over 25 territories thus far and will be shown as a six part drama on Netflix in 2020 and the Sunday Times Bestseller, ‘Cross Her Heart’. She has also written books across a variety of genres including the YA thriller 13 Minutes (in development with Netflix). Her next novel ‘Dead To Her’ comes out from William Morrow in the US in feb 2020 and HarperFiction in the UK in August 2020. It is already in development for US television.

You can follow her on Twitter @sarahpinborough

and her author site is: http://www.sarahpinborough.com

here’s what I read by her:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CB947XY

(love that cover by the way!) Blurb:

OMG! As the Zombie Apocalypse takes hold of London, for 13-year-old Maddy Wood it will be a birthday that she will never forget.

As the dead rise as flesh-eating ghouls and the chaos starts to spread, so Maddy begins to record her thoughts and feelings in her personal diary, little knowing that her life is about to change forever…

So what did I think of it?

3 stars!

2.5, but I’m rounding up because I liked the narrator. So three

It wasn’t really what I expected, but I still liked it alright. It was more of a kid complaining to their journal than anything else. We didn’t even see the zombies in this installment of the story.

But the narrator did a really good job. It sounded like a real, whiny teen, so that was good. And there were a few sound effects, which was a nice touch.

The story did show us glimpses of a UK in serious unrest, so I know the zombie bits are coming. Just not yet. Maybe in the next book? I think there’s a whole series that goes along with these little half-hour audiobooks, so maybe I’ll read that, and these will make more sense/be better.

So, not exactly what I thought, but still entertaining.

So it was a fun story. I’ll probably buy the second installment on payday. πŸ™‚

So! Let’s look at a couple of her other stories! Because I love pretty covers.

Toby’s life was perfectly normal… until it was unravelled by something as simple as a blood test.

Taken from his family, Toby now lives in the Death House: an out-of-time existence far from the modern world, where he, and the others who live there, are studied by Matron and her team of nurses. They’re looking for any sign of sickness. Any sign of their wards changing. Any sign that it’s time to take them to the sanatorium.

No one returns from the sanatorium.

Withdrawn from his house-mates and living in his memories of the past, Toby spends his days fighting his fear. But then a new arrival in the house shatters the fragile peace, and everything changes.

Because everybody dies. It’s how you choose to live that counts.

and this one!

Rachel Wright wakes up in the hospital one morning with no memory of who she is. It takes a while, but once she gets over the shock she decides amnesia isn’t all bad. Rachel grasps this opportunity for a fresh start. What does she care if everyone she used to know thinks she’d changed a bit too much? Life is good for the β€œnew” Rachel. . . . But now her life is starting to fray at the edges. She’s been having hideous nightmares and seeing strange things in mirrors. She’s becoming more and more certain that something bad is coming. Something wants to break into this world, to play games of blood and death with the living. And it’s coming for Rachel.

both those sound really cool. πŸ™‚ They’ve been added to my to-read list.

Make sure and check Sarah out! Especially her little audiobooks if you zomibes and audible. πŸ˜€ I’ll try and be back tomorrow with another post. probably a little review. πŸ™‚ Not King Clown, which I’m currently reading, but maybe a shorter book/story. πŸ™‚

Happy reading! Love, Lennie! ❀

Tuesday Review: Ghost Camera by Darcy Coates

Omg. Omg. Omg. This book I just read, ya’ll… It was amazing. ❀ I love Darcy Coates! ❀

Hey, readers! I had a very productive morning this morning! πŸ˜€ ❀ I went to my early morning stocking job. Which means… Audiobooks! ❀ I love that I get to read while I work. So, this mornings pick was…

Ghost Camera by Darcy Coates

blurb:

When Jenine finds an abandoned camera in a lighthouse, she takes a photo for fun. But there’s something very, very wrong with the picture: it contains ghosts.

Jenine and her best friend, Bree, realise the camera is capable of capturing the dead. But with each new photo taken, the spectres become more aware and more alert, and begin following the friends. Desperate, Jenine seeks the help of a paranormal researcher. He only has bad news, though: they’ve meddled with something far beyond their control, and the ghosts won’t stop… not until Jenine and Bree are dead.

This book, ya’ll… I loved it. Seriously loved it!

5 stars!

This is the exact kind of horror story I can get behind. Short. Creepy. Suspenseful. Just a few characters I can love right away. And just all around perfect. It’s a short little novella. Around 120-130 pages or about a 2 hour audiobook. And it’s just perfect. As a writer of short horror stories and novellas (just a couple of short novels for me! :D) This is a absolutely perfect book for me. ❀

I loved the characters, and the story was awesome. Also, our main character has 3 cats. ❀ ❀ ❀ How can I not love that? I have a cat of my own and I love him, even if he is a little asshole half the time. Seriously. He doesn’t understand how much it hurts when he tries to play fight. ugh. Nothing is more irritating that sitting here minding my own business and suddenly having claws digging into my arm. Anyone have any advice on how to get him to knock it off?

Anyway! Back to the book review!

I got legit chills while listening to this. Especially when the ghosts would touch the main character or appear in the pictures? I was so creeped out. That was some good stuff right there. You know a book is good when it creeps out a horror writer. πŸ˜€ ❀

It was wonderful. I need this book in a physical copy. It needs to be on my bookshelf with my other horror books. But it’s $13! ugh! I’m gonna have to wait on it. But I need it! adulting is hard!

anyway! I highly recommend! Perfect for horror fans looking for a novella.

πŸ˜€ Thanks for reading! I’ll try to get a writing update tomorrow. πŸ˜€ I had a very productive writing day yesterday, so I’ve got something special to share with ya’ll. πŸ˜€ Happy Reading! Love, Lennie! ❀

In the Heart of the Fire by Dean Koontz!

Hello, everyone! How’s everyone doing? I hope everyone is well, and having lots of awesome bookish adventures! I’m doing pretty good this week! I’ve finished lots of books/stories already this week. I’ve eaten healthy today. I went to work, and I even went to the gym for half an hour! I love using the treadmills there. I watch movies, TV and get a bit of exercise. lol. I walk now, but I’m hoping that I’ll be able to actually run someday.

Wouldn’t that be neat? πŸ˜€

Anyway! Review Time!

Do I have any Dean Koontz fans out there? I hope so, because I have something special for you then. πŸ˜€ A review of his first story in his new Nameless series. πŸ˜€

Blurb of the series from it’s Amazon page!

If our memories make us who we are, who is a man without any? Nameless has only a gun, missions from a shadowy agency, and one dead aim: dispense justice when the law fails. As he moves from town to town, driven by splintered visions of the past and future, he’s headed toward the ultimate confrontation in this propulsive series of short thrillers by #1Β New York TimesΒ bestselling author Dean Koontz.

As of right now, this wonderful little gem is the number one seller in the Kindle store. Very impressive, if you ask me. πŸ˜€ Good for you, Dean. Good for you! Cause, seriously, he deserves it. This is totally worth a read.

blurb for book one!

A bloodthirsty sheriff is terrorizing a small Texas town where justice has been buried with his victims. Until Nameless arrivesβ€”a vigilante whose past is a mystery and whose future is written in blood.

Anyone who crosses Sheriff Russell Soakes is dead, missing, or warned. One of them is a single mother trying to protect her children but bracing herself for the worst. Nameless fears the outcome. He’s seen it in his visions. Now it’s time to teach the depraved Soakes a lesson in fear. But in turning predators into prey, will Nameless unearth a few secrets of his own?

From #1Β New York TimesΒ bestselling author Dean Koontz comesΒ In the Heart of the Fire, part ofΒ Nameless, a riveting collection of short stories about a vigilante nomad, stripped of his memories and commissioned to kill. Follow him in each story, which can be read or listened to in a single sitting.

So! What did I think of this book?

5 stars!

Here’s my reivew. πŸ˜€ I also shared it to my Goodreads account.

Wow! This was very fun! I downloaded it for free thanks to my amazon prime membership. Yay, Prime reading! πŸ˜€ It was very much worth a read. πŸ˜€

We follow our main character, Nameless, as he works with a mysterious organization to bring out the truth (justice) to murderers who are projected by money and/or the law. There are 6 short stories in this series, each telling a different adventure of Nameless.

It’s an awesome thriller concept, and it worked very well. In this first story, Nameless works against a small-town sheriff who is just the worst. It was such a great story, and the narrator for the audible version was great. Especially when he did the Deputy’s voice.

I listened to several of these short stories this morning while I was at my stocking job at Dollar Tree. (I’m so glad I have a job that lets me listen to books while I work!) It made my shift so much more fun. πŸ˜€ I highly recommend if you like thrillers, short stories, and of course, Audiobooks. πŸ˜€

LOVE me some audiobooks!

πŸ˜€ Ya’ll should totally give this series I try. I’m already up to book 4 and it’s awesome! ❀ All the books are free for Kindle Unlimited members and to Prime members. The prime members (like myself. :D) can even listen to the audible version. One of my favorite ways to read. lol. you know, in case you all didn’t know already. πŸ˜‰

Thanks for reading my little post, everyone! I’ll try and be back tomorrow with a writing update. I know I haven’t published anything this month. Ugh. I’ve been busy with Nanowrimo and some other stuff, so not much has gotten ready for publishing yet, but I’m hoping to have something soon, I promise!

Happy Reading! Love, Lennie! ❀

Tuesday Review: Daddy’s Girl by Alan Austin!

Time for a review, everyone. πŸ˜€ ❀ more specifically, yet another review from one of my favorite writers, my dear friend, Alan Austin! today’s read:

here’s the blurb! πŸ˜€

Hot young virgin daughters, sisters, and students all have a need for something dirty! They need to be satisfied, filled, stretched, and broken for the first time and they know who they want to meet those needs!

First time, step fathers & siblings, teachers, broken, stretched, forced, voyeur, threesome. So many situations to explore with these fertile young virgins!

Very mature and graphic content. 18+ ONLY.

It most certainly is for mature readers! No kids around here! πŸ˜€ what’s my rating?

3 stars!

here’s my review! Posted here, amazon, and on my Goodreads page. πŸ˜€

It wasn’t my favorite Alan Austin book, but at this point, I’ll read anything Alan puts out. He’s one of my favorite writers now! πŸ˜€ especially if it’s a paperback. I adore physical books. (And the tiny ones alan and several other amazon indie authors release are the cutest things ever! I like cute things and I need them for my collection!)

I liked it! the short stories in this book were lots of fun. I really liked the first story, about the sleepover. And the last one about the girl and her professor was very hot. πŸ˜€

I wasn’t a huge fan of the camping story. I was a little distracted by thinking, “god! there was a bear out there! are ya’ll really gonna get it on when there’s a bear nearby!” lol.

but still, it was a fun read. I think I like the stories with more character development though. three stars is still nice though. πŸ˜€ Its a must read for a dedicated fan. πŸ™‚ I’m reading everything by Alan! And if ya’ll like erotica, you should too! πŸ˜€ And get all his paperbacks, even all the tiny ones. they’re great.

anyway! If ya’ll like sexy fun reads, be sure to check this and Alan’s other stuff out. πŸ˜€ He just released the complete collection of his Immoral series. I can’t wait for the paperback of it to come out! ❀

Happy Reading, everyone! I’ll be back tomorrow with more fun reading and writing stuff! (Hopefully! I’m not great at posting everyday. but hey, has anyone noticed that I’m getting better. lol)

Love, Lennie! ❀

Review of Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill

Hi, guys! πŸ˜€ Book review time! πŸ˜€ ❀ I just finished reading Heart-Shaped Box and I wanted to share my thoughts on it with you! πŸ˜€

what’s my rating?

5 stars!

here’s the review I shared over on Goodreads!

This was awesome! πŸ˜€ I loved Judas and Mary Beth. Both were great characters. And the dogs! Gotta love the dogs. And the ghost? Perfectly awful! πŸ˜€

The writing was strong and very descriptive. I loved it. I listened to this novel, as I do with so, so many of my books. πŸ˜€ And the narrator really brought the story to life. I got literal chills listening to this. I really liked the story Mary Beth told about seeing the little ghost girl.

The story was great, and I highly recommend it. Perfect Halloween reading. Or listening. The audiobook is totally worth the investment! πŸ˜€

Here’s the link if you want to check the book out! πŸ˜€
