The GIrls in the Stilt House by Kelly Mustian
The Girls in the Stilt House - Kelly Mustian

I’ve been wanting to read this book so I was excited we read it for bookclub.  The cover of the book and the synopsis gives me this dark mysterious feeling and I was intrigued by how these girls seemed so much alike but were separated by race.   Nestled into the swamp, these folks have their own way about doing things and whether it’s proper or not, is not what matters, it’s that it’s taken care of.

 

She was in love when she left and now, she has returned.  Her fondness of Jesse prompted her to run off with him but now she has returned. Returned to her home, to her father, to this home in the swamp, the house on stilts.  There had been room for Ada in this house but now, her father’s tools are more important and Ada will sleep in the shed.  Her father has expectations of Ada now that she has returned.  He didn’t welcome her with open arms but with expectations and responsibilities. 

 

My heart was torn for Ada as she tried to fit back into her old lifestyle.  Her father wasn’t making it any easier.  When he compares his daughter to his wife and begins to criticize and lash out at her, I wanted to reach inside the book and cause my own scene.  The words that were spoken, the truth that was revealed was painful but Ada had to learn what she could from her father, no matter what the conditions were.  

 

Matilda to the rescue!  I was so grateful that Matilda arrived on the scene and took action.  Anything that she could do would be beneficial but I didn’t expect her to be such a strong character.  Matilda had her own issues but to Ada she was a ray of light and she knew the w’s: what, where, why and when.    I enjoyed the friendship that Ada and Matilda formed and how they supported each other.   

 

I liked how the beginning of the book tied into the middle of this book rather than at the end of the book, that had a nice touch.  I knew the story wasn’t over and the ending was still yet to come.   I had never expected the ending that the author led me down, as I had envisioned many different paths as I became entwined inside this book.  A 5-star read for me.

EARTH GIRLS ARE DIFFICULT by Frances Pauli
Earth Girls Are Difficult - Frances Pauli

9 short stories that range in tone from creepy to funny. Each has a paranormal theme.

My favorite story was Forbidden which has Lorenzo, a vampire, bemoaning the fact that no one is afraid of him like in the old days. He also craves garlic and has a way to get it but giving in to his craving contradicts his moaning.

 

Another favorite was Bad Dog who is Hatach who is a hellhound. He is rescued by a human. He is funny also.

 

El Emperador is also fun as you get the woman's thoughts and the horse's. The horse seems smarter than the woman. They are an interesting mix.

 

Silent Partner was good with Charles and the tattoo artist. Charles and his significant other, Janine, reminded me of Howard and Eunice in What's Up Doc? I am not sure if Charles was dreaming or if he had the tattoo. It's a little iffy.

 

The rest of the stories were okay but not as good as the ones I mentioned above. These stories are worth the few minutes it takes to read them.

The Missing Girls - Linda O'Neal
The Missing Girls: A Shocking True Story of Abduction and Murder - Linda O'Neal,Rick Watson,Philip Tennyson
A friend and co-worker of mine lent me this book. I love true crime, and had not heard of this particular case before.
What a sad, tragic story about two girls murdered in Oregon. Unfortunately if it wasn't for a third teen being raped, the murderer wouldn't have been discovered. I cried a couple of times. As a mom, it was tough to read about. The abuse and savage murders were too much for me. The manipulation and head games disgusted me to my soul. I had to put the book aside so many times.
The writing felt like reading a news report at times. Not throughout, but enough to sometimes be a snooze fest. It was the only downside to reading it. It also added to me taking a bit to read it.
I love true crime though. Reading facts and real stories excite me like reading a horror novel. I'm sure I'm not alone either, so pick his one up.
