    Word Press Daily Prompt- Have Never Bounced Back from the Sting 

    Oh my this book. I really cannot explain why I have never recovered from it. It was nearly 2 months ago and  I was deep into it. – And I could not quit talking regarding it. Drove my family nuts with my rantings about it along with the laughter I did over the pages. I am an extremely sensitive and emotional person. I can really feel inside & with the characters.

    I found my first book by this author a few years back and fell deeply in love with the man’s descriptive deep wit and truth he can get under my skin with.

    This is the start of  a 4 book series. The last one comes out in January. I will eventually get to them all.

    The book is full of the sting of death, but amidst the thorns is life blooming and growing. I am waiting for the bud to burgeon through the other volumes to end with the last soon to be released novel into tears of joy.

    The funny thing is , this is a book and series with teenagers in mind. I guess a part of me will always be there, back along time ago so much like the protagonist even if not a male.

    My review at :SolitarySolitary by Travis ThrasherMy rating: 5 of 5 stars

    This series of books was actually mostly written for the teen audience. These are beautiful tales showing the coming to and journey to redemption. Classics of Good and Evil. I am way past teenage, but I really loved Solitary. I am looking forward to finding what happens in the final 3 volumes. Some might find these books on the creepy side, but they were tame to me compared to some other reviews. I think this would depend on your mindset. I really loved Chris’s Character in resisting temptation and his reasoning for it. I think these books are a great example for teens. Depending on the maturity of the teen though. Younger teens and preteens might need to pass for a couple years. Only for the eerie moments; the book is wonderful with no cussing or sensual trash.

    End of the Holiday told from the Beginning through Story Land. 

    My internet service was foul today and I could not get on here to post. Every time I tried to get on WP I could not and now it is late. I really wanted to check out the daily prompt or write something, but knowing my service with the weather may give up at any moment here I am giving out a speedy read.

    Here is a quote to sum up the day: I like to compare the holiday season with the way a child listens to a favorite story. The pleasure is in the familiar way the story begins, the anticipation of familiar turns it takes, the familiar moments of suspense, and the familiar climax and ending.

    Mr Rogers. I am at a weary ending as stated.
