Title: Hollow: A Love a Life by: Jazalyn

Title: Hollow: A Love Like A Life
Author: Jazalyn
Publisher: self
Format: Kindle ( 169 p.) Author Req. Review


A ghost spirit of dark's universe falls in love with a ghost spirit of light's universe, and while they cannot meet, for they wander around separate realms and spacetimes, they live their love through a secret and sacred interaction.

My Review:

While the premise was very very good, there was a disjointed way the author wrote the poetry.  It would have done better as an actual story as the again, the premise is very well thought out and very interesting.

Title: Rose: Future Heart by: Jazalyn

Title: Rose Future Heart
Author: Jazalyn
Publisher: self
Format: kindle ( 225 p.) Author Req Review


A beautiful and charismatic but blowsy and lonely rose faces external turbulences and internal battles of life and love, but She overcomes them filtering the positiveness and the negativeness, and She becomes the future heart deep down inside She always was.


Beautiful written poetry that captures your heart and keeps you well engaged and feeling so many emotions while reading.  I don't want to give much away because I think you as a reader need to experience this book for yourself and I don't think I could do it justice.

Review: City of The Dead by: Jonathan Kellerman

Title: City of The Dead
Author: Jonathan Kellerman
Publisher: Ballantine Books
Series: Alex Deleware #37
Format: Hardcover ( 386 p.) NetGalley ARC


The past comes back to haunt psychologist Alex Delaware and Detective Milo Sturgis when they investigate a grisly double homicide and uncover an even more unspeakable motive in this riveting thriller from the #1 New York Times bestselling master of suspense.

Los Angeles is a city of sunlight, celebrity, and possibility. The L.A. often experienced by Homicide Lt. Detective Milo Sturgis and psychologist Alex Delaware, is a city of the dead.

Early one morning, the two of them find themselves in a neighborhood of pretty houses, pretty cars, and pretty people. The scene they encounter is anything but. A naked young man lies dead in the street, the apparent victim of a collision with a moving van hurtling through suburbia in the darkness. But any thoughts of accidental death vanish when a blood trail leads to a nearby home.

Inside, a young woman lies butchered. The identity of the male victim and his role in the horror remain elusive, but that of the woman creates additional questions. And adding to the shock, Alex has met her while working a convoluted child custody case. Cordelia Gannett was a self-styled internet influencer who’d gotten into legal troubles by palming herself off as a psychologist. Even after promising to desist, she’s found a loophole and has continued her online career, aiming to amass clicks and ads by cyber-coaching and cyber-counseling people plagued with relationship issues.

But upon closer examination, Alex and Milo discover that her own relationships are troublesome, including a tortured family history and a dubious personal past. Has that come back to haunt her in the worst way? Is the mystery man out in the street collateral damage or will he turn out to be the key to solving a grisly double homicide? As the psychologist and the detective explore L.A.'s meanest streets, they peel back layer after layer of secrets and encounter a savage, psychologically twisted, almost unthinkable motive for violence and bloodshed.

This is classic Delaware: Alex, a man Milo has come to see as irreplaceable, at his most insightful and brilliant. 

My Review: 

This book brings Alex into a crazy investigation when a woman and a young man wind up dead with no idea what happened Alex helps the police figure out what happened.  The closer they look the more crazy these two people look like with their quirks and things they did.

I found myself falling fast into the world of Alex and how easy it was to travel with him as he does what he does.  I enjoyed it and I haven't read much by this author but I definitely plan to read more of this series so good.  It's great for fans of Alex Cross and Kay Scarpetta!

Format: Kindle Edition ( 199 p.) Author Req. Review


A virus invades the lives of all humanity and causes a madness pandemic from the reminder of the past and the exposure of thoughts threatening to change everything, but then another virus attempts to erase the memories and recover the future, while a third virus scopes to save the new generations.

My Thoughts: 

This was great book dealing with the pandemic that may hit close to what we have been going through but it is different than a typical pandemic story being told in poetry which runs well as a story and pulls you in wanting you to continue to see where it goes!  Definitely a new poetry author to keep an eye on!
