polysyllabic profundities

I love to read.  I don’t make as much time for it as I would like because I am consumed with writing, but when I do ignore the incongruously fueled ideas that seep into my conscious hours I love to immerse myself in the written expression of others as consumed as I am by words.  I have been fortunate to meet many talented writers and genuinely nice people on this blog site.  And I also consider myself lucky to have read some of their published works.  I have written my amateur reviews on Amazon and wanted to share them with you in hopes that you would read the books written by these truly talented people.

The Gods of Asphalt by H.E. Ellis – I didn’t want to put it down

    I love hearing how good writers write book reviews. The way they describe characters, plot, setting, gets my mind working. I write about a review a week as a Vine reviewer and I tell you, sometimes, it’s difficult to make them sound fresh (especially if I pick the wrong book). Loved what Susan does!

    Dianne, I’ve started reading The Everything Theory! Wow! I was reading and thinking “I see, so this is award winning writing” haha, it’s great, sooooo fast paced and your descriptions of people are just brilliant, so concise yet detailed.
