To bright to see

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stunning. Insightful. Unexpected. I couldn’t put this small book of poetry down - so moved was I by the kaleidoscope of words, each piece of work so uniquely brilliant (though a small few, I must confess, I found maddeningly impenetrable). Experimental in nature, the “poems” captured here cross the…

The Soul Catcher

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 1/2 A delightful collection of Indian fairy tales, that read like short stories, sprinkled with magic, karma and a whole heap of kindness. Each beautifully intermingled story tells the tale of one ‘angel’, one not quite ‘normal’ being who comes to realize they are blessed with a power or…

The Heights

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Twists within twists within more twists. Maybe one twist too many? You decide, - I confess, I still haven’t made up my mind. Ellen Saint is one “crazy obsessed mother.” Neurotic, icily consumed by her rage (superseding her remarkable fragility), plagued with anxieties, including a terrifying (and thematic to…

The Devil’s Road to Kathmandu

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 1/2 An epic and life-changing journey, paused and then culminated, decades later, as our main protagonist, Dan, travels the road to Kathmandu, Nepal. Dan, an often strung-out hippie kid from England, seeking mystery, excitement, adventure, and most of all, freedom from his “cultural straightjacket”, completes a drive across Europe,…

This Might Hurt

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Wow. That was one ending I did not predict! What a fabulous ride - twists and turns do not come anywhere near describing the devious path this book takes to tell its tale. A dark and clammy story brimming with fear, fearlessness (is it a good thing? Is it…

Deadly Little Lies

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “Is it really possible to start over? To change? Or are we all destined to be haunted by ghosts we thought we’d left behind?” Reminiscent of “The Girls Are All So Nice Here” (albeit with a much nicer group of protagonists), this book tells a “now” versus “then” tale…

Letters from Afghanistan

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “Letters from Afganistan” is a YA book bursting with social consience, a Call to Action and most of all, a giant heart. Written as the first English story constructed by a native Italian speaking author, the book is intended to inspire, educate, and reach deep into the heart of…

The Sequence

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “The Sequence” by Lucien Telford is absolutely brilliant in parts, (many parts), so much so that it’s hard to believe this is the work of first time author. The story line is multi-layered, fiendishly ingenious, and peppered with such cool tech gear, holograms, vehicles, implants and gadgets that I…

Buried Lies

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ My favorite kind of book - intense, suspenseful, an intriguing crime puzzle, and so many interesting characters - both the regulars in this outstanding detective series, and the villains, victims, red herrings, and “friendlies”, - so intertwined and carefully plotted that it requires best wits in an attempt to…
