Short stories are an ADHD kids’ dream. I can’t count the amount of times I had to read a book in school and I didn’t finish it. How I passed English class I will never know. But if I had to take a test over theses 7 short stories, I would pass it (I read them all).
Tolu’ A. Akinyemi, I want to take this opportunity to thank you for trusting me with your works and thank you for allowing me to read such powerful stories. Akinyemi’s history of award winning poetry allows his stories to flow with grace and elegance, that few authors can accomplish.
Full of heart, trials and tribulations, and so much reality. Akinyemi shines a light on the day-to-day interactions that people have all over the world, through the stories of his culture and his people.
Before I read any of Akinyemi’s stories I knew very little of Nigeria or of it’s culture. The closest I ever got to Nigeria was dating an Ethiopian girl in college; so not close at all. After reading the stories I became more knowledgeable of Nigeria’s people, food, culture, clothing, and so much more.
You can take my word for how great Akinyemi’s writing is, or you can just get yourself your own copy of and truly immerse you self into Akinyemi’s work and passion.
As a lesbian I am not someone who worries about what a man has to offer me, but offer up Eddie Roark for me and I won’t turn him down. He’s a man of passion not just for the women in his life, but for his career.
The book is set in Texas and the realism that comes from Margaret Ferguson’s work makes me home sick. This page turner (or should I say this screen swiper) keeps you engaged and keeps you up at night, but in the good way of not being able to put it down.
Eddie Roark has his hands full… An ex-girlfriend, an ex-fiancé, and two ex-military armed to the teeth and determined to get some payback.
Once again Eddie finds himself stuck on a mountain. Only his mountain is a restaurant and dozens of lives are at stake, including someone he cares about. Can he stave off the police and save the woman he loves, or will he be forced to sacrifice her life to save everyone else?
Round two I mean, book two of Shadow’s Fire Trilogy from Christopher Patterson, and we are right back where book one left us.
Erik journeys on facing his ever growing fears. Erik’s world is changing with evil becoming stronger and stronger. Right now this book is the perfect mirror to the world we live in.
While Erik moves forward on his adventures no matter evil throws in his way. We too move forward no matter what hate is thrown our way.
While our world at times may seem like a scary place, Patterson‘s novel allows you to escape into another world where evil is conquerable with help from the right friends. Or so it seems…
My knowledge of dwarfs involved Snow White, and
as for ogres – there is Shrek! But this book made me see them in a whole new
light. It started out like a tale of the old past but then the author put in
some interesting characters. Cat-like creatures, a sword that I really need to
get and powerful dwarfs got the story moving at a quick pace, and before I knew
it, I was done reading. I was not sure if I would be a fan of fantasy but I was
and happy to found out there are two more. I can’t wait to see what happens
Every Monday through Friday, 7 am to 3 pm you can find me working with teenagers in the foster care system, but I am yet to meet one like Trisha.
Granted I don’t know what I would do if one of the teenagers turned out to be fae. Trisha has the voice of a teenager; one that reminds me of my inner voice and sometimes outer voice.
This book is engaging and well written! Check out more of Cassie’s work here!
In a world of government shutdowns, wall building, and climate change debates I’ve wondered how this world came to be.
Robert J. Emery or R.J. Eastwood shows how our current environment could have been formed. Who would have thought that sci-fi novel could tell the future? This all happened because of someone that looks like a 12-year-old boy, I’m not talking about our current president, or was this all our own undoing?
This quick read gives incite into our world, which is probably why it was Book Talk Radio named it the Book of the Year for 2018.
Check out Emery’s interview on Book Talk Radio here to learn more about how this man’s mind works in order to create an amazing read for all to enjoy.
I have to admit I was a virgin when it came to gay male romance, but Sionnach popped my cherry. Many people say they regret their first time, but I do not regret reading this gay male romance novel at all!
This historical fiction is set in East Texas — to start off I’m just trying to figure out how Sionnach is getting away with gay men in East Texas. Sionnach does a great job at throwing these two men together in all sorts of positions (pun intended) that bring them closer together.
For any of my LGBTQIA+ family members out there needing a good steamy read, I urge you to stop here and read this book…you will enjoy it!
It is funny that it took my roommate (aka my mom) to give this book to me for me to read my first gay male romance…I have a weird and fantastic relationship with her.
For someone that is employed full-time and attending grad school full-time then adding in my rental agreement responsibilities; one could assume I have my life together and organized.
They would be very wrong! My millennial generation (in all its glory) is the FOMO generation. I over schedule myself and under organize it. But no more! I’m going to be mastering my time and conquering my clutter.
It’s a quick read, but it is packed with so many usefully skills that I can easily integrate into my life. When I finished reading the book instead of throwing it on my nightstand I placed it on my dusty bookshelf…that will be the perfect place to start my life organization journey. Ask me next week if there is still dust on my bookshelf.
A prostitute and a private eye walk into a bar. No punchline can fully grasp how that story ends.
This book is a thinker, not a stinker; which means you have to sit with that book, pay attention to the book, and ignore your phone during the book. There is so much detail with the twists and turns in this book that if you look away for a second, you will miss why the book ended in the cliffhanger. You don’t need to read the first two books to follow the story, but after reading the third one, I don’t know why you wouldn’t read the other ones.
Mobsters, priests, pimps, hookers, and it all starts in a club with a prostitute and a private eye.
