It's okay to cry [3/12/18]

I am just so weepy recently.

 

Everything gets to me. I am thankful today that I am able to be emotional. It just proves that I am human and no matter what I go through, I am still alive. So in saying that, I am also thankful I am alive. In my darkest moment, I think I don't want to be alive, but I know that is my demon depression talking.

Halloween Bingo: 80's horror
A Crying Shame - William W. Johnstone

 

The missing link may have been found in a swamp in Louisiana.

And they need women.

 

A mercenary hired to wipe them out finds himself without a boss and falling for the ex-boss's sister.

Love blossoms among the blood, guts and gore.

But this is not a romance.

Crying for the Moon - a dreary, tawdry series of events lacking in motivation
Crying for the Moon: A Novel - Mary Walsh

 

 

Maureen comes from a working class family in St John's, Newfoundland. She's a senior in a Catholic parochial high school.

 

Even though she can't sing she fakes her way into the school choir so she can travel as part of the group to Montreal and perform at Expo '67, the world's fair taking place there in 1967.

 

As soon as she arrives, her and a girlfriend go AWOL and hit the Montreal nightlife.

 

 

Before you can say " G'wan with cha" she gets drunk and wakes up in a strange hotel room having lost her virginity as well as her girlfriend.


Evidently not big deal.

 

She goes back to the hotel, don't know that she ever performs at Expo, but the next night is out looking for her girlfriend in the same bars and has sex with another, more or less anonymous guy all the while not enjoying it one bit, which makes this reader wonder why she does it?

 

Not wanting to hang around with someone she hardly knows she ends up at yet another bar, gets dead drunk and has sex with an "old man".

 

Back home and back at Catholic school in St. John's she throws up on a nun's habit and is announced pregnant and kicked out of school.

 

Her mother, "the Sarge" tells her she isn't going to sit around so she gets a part time job in a discount store where all the other employees hate her.

 

There's more, but none of it has any motivation, there's little character development - it is just one grim situation after another.

 

Why would a "good" girl attending a Catholic school, suddenly go on a sex and drinking binge just because she's away from home?

 

I never found out because I abandoned Crying for the Moon after three chapters. Blame it on a really unsympathetic character and an inability to suspend disbelief.

 

This is a good example of a "celebrity book". The publisher knows the author's fame in other endeavours, in this case author Mary Walsh being somewhat of an comic icon in Canada, will sell enough books to make a profit.

 

Maybe stick to comedy, Mary, or was this book supposed to be a joke and I just didn't get it?

It's Okay to Laugh: (Crying Is Cool Too)
It's Okay to Laugh: (Crying Is Cool Too) - Nora McInerny Purmort This book is very very enticing. When I first heard of it I imagined it was going to be very sad because of everything that the author had been through but Nora was able to but a positive spin on it. It is a nice change from everyday reads and certainly helps to put life into perspective. Would recommend this read to everyone.
