A surprise after all of these months of Scribbles on my to do list I finally got the time to place the order and sure enough this one did not disappoint!
Soroosh by Laleh Chini is another jewel: Canada Book Award winner-Soroosh was ten years old, a tiny boy who looked like a 7-year-old. He was very lean; you could easily count his ribs; He was short for his age, timid, and quiet. He characteristically captured moments by looking, listening, and thinking. Talking was not his passion. He slept on the damp and dusty floor covered with broken tiles, on some ripped cardboards.Waiting at the port forever and staying homeless wasn’t going to bring his father back. His mother said: “My dear Soroosh, you are the man of our family, and unfortunately, you have to start early in life. Your father didn’t plan life for you like this, but it looks like destiny did.
Laleh can attest to my tardiness when she kindly sent me her book to review to my email and I couldn’t get to it until now. It is available on Amazon here. She tells amazing short stories which can be seen in many of her books.

Kids Under the Latch Key by Cherie White is by one of our Word Press friends who writes with positivity to put an end to bullying which we so need and is available for purchase on amazon. Do visit her site.
During the summer of 1987, then sixteen-year-old Grace Bradshaw, her younger brother Max, and neighborhood friends befriend Randy Spence, a twenty-one-year-old mentally disabled man with the IQ of a child. Mocked by many in the corrupt small town, Randy is taken under wing and protected by his younger friends while learning hard lessons about the way most people treat those who are different. Along the way, Grace, her brother and younger neighborhood friends also learn shocking lessons about good and evil.” A first-person narrative told by a now middle-aged and widowed Grace Bradshaw McGuire to her adult children, “Kids Under the Latch Key” is a heart-touching story of the summer which prompted her to question God and challenged her initial belief that all humans are inherently good.

Dwight at Roth Poetry is one of the most generous people I know and always willing to help and serve. His posts are uplifting in beautiful poetry and story. His art, photos, and words of wisdom are treasures to the heart. He is working on a book as we speak and the amount of books and memoirs he writes are inspirational in a simple form which he is always happy to share.
I finally got my books I’ve ordered of some of my Word Press friends today and I’m going to sit and get through all of them. LOL❣️
So, that means I’ll get through just a few which means just a page or two and hope I make a dent in them. But it really means I’ll fall asleep on the first page not because they’re not page turners, because of time.
Honestly, I am so amazed by all of you avid readers and I am envious to boot. But I got to tell I’m currently burning the candle at both ends between work, blogging, writing, and a little plethora of other things which is why I’ve cut my blogging down to 2 days a week right now. They say good writers are good readers and I totally believe this but I also have to say I would never write if I held that as a truth.
I personally feel the amount that I read from all of your sites, reviews etc is amazing information and your posts have broadened my verbiage, understanding of the written word, flow, and skills and I couldn’t be more blessed and appreciative of that. With that said my book club starts next week so I’ll have lots of books to share.
If you didn’t see your book here remember, I’m a slow reader and surely, I’ll make it to yours soon so don’t loose hope.
And the most fun of all is a SHOUT OUT TO MY GODSON on his first poetry book that is on Amazon for pre-sale.
I’ll share more in the weeks to come but for now I will just say:
Congratulations to you Connor, I am soooo proud of you!
Revealing the inner light at the core of the psyche, spirit, and the soul, “Atomic Flower” is an enlightening poetry journey that brings the reader in sight of new colors and towards the awakening and flowering of the Universe itself.
Consisting of 60 poems, Connor Licolli takes readers on an impassioned journey to the depths of the psyche, the spirit, and the soul. At the core of each poem, there is love. At times heartbreaking, at times euphoric, at times mental, at times physical, at times natural, and at times digital, the breadth of poetry in “Atomic Flower” is a fantastic accomplishment. Licolli sought for his book to mirror his reader to bear witness to their state of mind at any given time. Reading “Atomic Flower” offers the opportunity for cathartic release, a chance to empty one’s cup, and start anew.

You know what I’ll be doing and I am looking forward to reading and relaxing.
