MOST RECENT

I purchased this book on Amazon to read. All opinions are my own. 🌟🌟🌟A Guide For Murdered Children by Sarah Sparrow. When I read this synopsis I immediately wanted this book. The spooky premise behind it was intriguing. I was let down. 😐 The idea behind this story is amazing a retired drunk cop with visions of the dead and children seeking revenge in murders seems exactly like the perfect balance for justice. However, the way this one is written with the bouncing back and forth through the timeline and the thoughts of the characters seem to drone on and on. Overall the story was great, the plot twists were well laid out and it does all kind of come together in the last 100 pages or so but those first 300 you have to be really dedicated to getting through them. Review also posted on Instagram @borenbooks, Library Thing, Go Read, Goodreads/StacieBoren, Amazon, Twitter @jason_stacie and my blog at readsbystacie.com

I guess I never thought much about the application of lithium, outside of batteries. This book made me think differently. For some people with bipolar disorder, like the author, they cannot function and survive without regular doses of lithium, just as insulin is to diabetics. A fascinating insight into mental illness and the pharmaceutical industry, especially since lithium is a non -patentable element, big pharma has little to no financial incentive to study how and why it's effective.

DEAD PRETTY by David Mark released yesterday. I’m not familiar with his writing, but after reading the synopsis I quickly ordered the first in the series. .

Synopsis: .
While a colleague struggles to solve the recent killing of a man too vile to have mourners, Aector McAvoy, Detective Sergeant of the Humberside Police's murder squad, is still haunted by the past. His devotion to his cases is unshakeable, but it's been nine months since Hannah Kelly disappeared in the quiet English countryside, and it is becoming harder to convince himself that she is just missing instead of dead... especially when another young woman is found brutally murdered.

As McAvoy looks for connections between the women, his boss Trish Pharaoh is preoccupied with troubles of her own. Reuben Hollow--a man convicted of murder with the help of perjured testimony from the Humberside Police--has just been released from prison after a high-profile wrongful conviction suit, putting Pharaoh's reputation at stake. But when her house is broken into and her children threatened, she soon learns it is not only her good name that's in danger.

As the cases intertwine and Pharaoh's behavior becomes more erratic, McAvoy must question who he can trust if he is to uncover Hannah's fate and find justice for the dead--without joining them himself.

Spending some time with this guy!
Meaning, I’m reading this book. Not actually hanging out with @eddieizzard unfortunatly, but this book is pretty good!! 😁😁

It has been my absolute pleasure to have met and had a wonderful conversation with the AMAZING woman and vocalist, Bettye LaVette at The Experience with Bettye LaVette event last night.
I am grateful for this wonderful sentiment Bettye inscribed in my copy of her autobiography, A Woman Like Me... "My thanks to D and all his crew.
All my love, Bettye Lavette." Thanks Bettye for being you... with all of my love, Dedry.

Happy hump day all! It’s yet another snow storm day in NYC. Working from my bed, in my pajamas and wish I could say I could take more advantage of the day but I have actual work to do. 😫 Not complaining about the snow day, though. I love me some winter. 😍❄️

“We’ve heard it said that there is no justice in this world. But what if there really was? What if the souls of murdered children were able to briefly return, inhabit adult bodies, and wreak revenge on the monstrous killers who stole their lives?” 🦄😱
.
.

I absolutely love a unique storyline and this book delivers on that. 👌🏻However, it became a bit convoluted and had way too many things going on and I felt a bit lost and never found my way. This felt like a mix of genres: supernatural, police procedural, fantasy... all things I love. But this mish mosh proved to be a bit too complex for me. Definitely give this a shot if you like the unique storyline. It could work better for you. Detective Willow Wylde is waiting 😏

A Guide for Murdered Children by Sarah Sparrow (out now!)
.
.
I'll start this out with the warning that this does depict topics that some might not want to read. Including rape, abuse, and the murder of children. .
I'll admit, the title and the cover combo pulled me in immediately. This was an incredibly unique premise and a perfect story of revenge. .
There are a lot of characters to keep straight, so I can see that getting confusing for some readers. The other small issues I had were related to this being an early copy. Some errors that were most likely fixed for the final book!
.
.
"We all say there is no justice in this world. But what if there really was? What if the souls of murdered children were able to return briefly to this world, inhabit adult bodies and wreak ultimate revenge on the monsters who had killed them, stolen their lives?"
.
.
I enjoyed the uniqueness of the plot and where the story took us!
.
I give this 🌟🌟🌟🌠/5!
.
.
My full review will be up on my blog and Goodreads later today!

Wherever I Wind Up by R.A. Dickey with Wayne Coffey from @blueriderpress.

Baseball, for me, is a game of managing regrets. You are always going to have regrets; they are as much part of baseball as home plate. As a pitcher, I may regret that I was afraid to throw my knuckleball when I was behind in the count. I may regret that I didn’t change speeds, or was too predictable in my pitch sequence, or that I didn’t anticipate that an opposing pitcher would be sitting on a fastball. If you let your regrets linger, they will devour you. Remember Greg Maddux’s words: You need a short memory. You manage your regrets by letting them go, taking them to the curb as if they were the trash. (Pg. 323). #novelpassages #radickey #whereveriwindup #baseball #knuckleball #igreads #blueriderpress #autobiography #nonfiction #books #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #read #hardcover #regrets #gregmaddux
