Reading progress update: I've read 192 out of 292 pages.
Ordinary Souls - J.S. Bailey

It has been a while since I've read this book. In my defense, there are some books you can take your time with, like short story collections.

 

Just finished - And Lead Us Not -  Disturbing. I wish there were more details and that it were longer. I know it is a short story, but something was lacking. Well written, but the story wasn't my cup of tea. Great, unexpected way to end it, though.

 

16 stories, 11 finished.

Make Me by Tessa Bailey 99 cents!
Make Me: A Broke and Beautiful Novel - Tessa Bailey

Construction worker Russell Hart has been head-over-work boots for Abby Sullivan since the moment he laid eyes on her. But he knows a classy, uptown virgin like her could never be truly happy with a rough, blue-collar guy like him. If only she'd stop treating him like her personal hero—a role he craves more than oxygen—maybe he could accept it.

 

With the future of her family's hedge fund on her shoulders, Abby barely has time to sleep, let alone find love. And her best friend Russell acting like a sexy, overprotective hulk any time their Super Group goes out in public definitely isn't helping her single status. But after a near-tragedy lands Russell in her bed for the night, Abby's suddenly fantasizing about what he looks like shirtless. Chest hair and tattoos—who knew?

 

As Russell struggles to keep Abby at a safe distance, she begins to see through his tough-talking exterior—and acknowledge her own feelings. Now she's ready to turn the friend-zone into foreplay…and make him lose control.

Ordinary Souls - J.S. Bailey

Just finished Imaginary Friend - This story is a prequel to “Rage’s Echo” a novel by J.S. Bailey I haven’t read. Knowing nothing about Rage’s Echo, I really enjoyed this story. It was sad, but sweet at the same time.

 

Just finished - Weary Traveler - I really liked this one. It was spooky. I like how you are not sure what is real and what might be supernatural.

 

Just finished - Journal Entry From The End Of The Universe - This one was told in journal entries. I really liked the format. This story makes you think about what matters and to be careful of what you wish for. The thing you wish for might not be what it is cracked up to be.

Just finished The Outing - This one seemed like it would be a sweet story about an average looking man (he pretty much describes himself as such) and a younger woman he thinks is out of his league getting together and getting married. It is a much darker story than that. I can’t say much without spoiling anything, though. I liked the story, but I wanted more, or a little more “oomph.”

Ordinary Souls - J.S. Bailey

Just finished The Author, The Lonely Walker and The Class - This one is interesting. It is a story within a story…within a story. I’m not going to say it isn’t confusing at first. I'm not usually a fan of this, but I think it was handled well here. This kind of story (especially considering it is so short) is a hit and miss for a lot of people, but I liked it. I feel like I could also relate to “the author” who talks about what I assume is social anxiety and having meltdowns in public. I don't want to spoil anything, but I relate to "the author" and "the lonely walker" in other ways, too. Really solid writing style.
