REVIEW OF THE BOOK BY JD HOLIDAY, STORIES AND IMAGININGS FOR THE READING SPOT BY CHRISTINA GIGUERE

Review by Christina Giguere
This book of short stories will take you from tears to laughter and back to tears again. J.D. Holiday brings a well-rounded composition of stories with compelling and timely subjects. I personally bought the story after reading an excerpt on the Cereal Authors’ blog. I had no idea what I was getting myself into emotionally as a reader. From her story “The Boy in The Leaves,” which deals with child abuse to “Inside,” that broaches the subject of PTSD. This book had me wanting to kill some characters while wishing to rescue others. This is what reading is all about!
J.D. Holiday manages to take readers on an emotional rollercoaster and manages to do this in short story form all without sacrificing description and character development. I highly recommend this book for anyone who is short on time but wants to get lost in a good story.
My favorite line: “We hold one another close in this, our last moment and kiss. Your goodbye is in our lips, good luck wishes shine in those robin’s egg blue eyes.” Thanks for the roller coaster ride JD Holiday!
