Review: Tears into wine


2 stars

Read on June 25, 2015 — I own a copy

Synopsis: There is currently no synopsis… here’s one reviewers take: The story is about a teenage boy who falls in love with a mysterious slightly older teenage girl and their annual winter romance over the course of several years.

Bookish Things: 6 pages. The cover screams poor quality and self-published.

Where to buy: Amazon on kindle for $1.44

My Review: 

Bookshelves: 2-star-review, fantasy, romance-ish, something-missing, too-short

Tears to Wine is a very strange short story.

Told by a young male protagonist, the story unfolds as if he is telling us his memory of the events. It provides a lot of information, but doesn’t show the reader very much outside of what is written on the page.

The whole story is rather sad, with some lovely prose speckled throughout.

I didn’t love it or hate it, but I also wasn’t very drawn to it, which is why this gets only two stars from me.

Can love overcome the lack of trust and the web of lies that is spun in the race to find the emerald necklace?

Bookish Things: 200 pages of ocean-misted, pirate-filled adventures. The cover looks a little ‘home-made’ and could do with a bit of a spruce, but it is quite fitting for the story.

Review: Desexed by Benjamin Tariri


2 stars

Read from March 02 to 09, 2015 — I own a copy

Synopsis: To Live, is to Die, and Then Live Again. . . This book is not about apocalypse. Nor is it about the invasion of aliens. In fact, it’s not even fiction. Ben Tariri’s Desexed takes you to a place, where you have never been, but always longed to be, a place, where the end is truly the beginning of something breathtakingly phenomenal. As you will see, we all relate to the concept of this book in one form or another. This book is about life, death, and afterlife, and about life again… This could happen, and when it does, we should be prepared. What if the end of the world came in in the form of this?!
