Thursdays: short story review


Hello lovelies! Here is my latest Short Story review. I was so sucked in by the cover art of this one, but I was let down.

Interested in joining? See below for what to do to be a part of it!


  • On Thursday, I will pick a short story from for us to all read…
  • The next Thursday, we will all review the story that was picked the previous week…
  • The review can be in depth or short and snappy! There are no boundaries on how you want to review the story…
  • After my own personal review of that weeks story, I will post the next story to read for next week…
  • And on and on it goes…
  • Please remember to tag back to my post (pingback!!) if you join in on this meme, that way I can read all your reviews!



3 stars

I would have never picked this book if I had known it was about child abuse, because one, triggers, and two, it’s not the kind of stuff I like to read about due to the fact it’s so upsetting. That being said, this is a story about the healing process.

I got a bit lost along the way a couple of times with this one. It was so beautifully written, more like a poem than a story, that some of the descriptions confused me a little bit and I didn’t know what was being described – feeling wise.

This reminded me of a JT LeRoy story and while that’s not necessarily a bad thing, it’s also not really my kind of fiction.

NEXT WEEK’S TOR.COM STORY IS: The Loud Table by Jonathan Carroll


“The Loud Table” by Jonathan Carroll is an sf-fantasy about four elderly men who regularly hang out. One of the men is worried that he’s getting Alzheimer’s, but the truth might be even more discomforting.
