Singing Back To The Sirens by Margaret DeRitter is a beautiful book with poems that talk about the life of a woman. Each poem is an amazing representation of her desire, love, loss and grief.
The book has two parts with wonderful poems. Poems talk about different forms of love, the kind between mother and child, two best friends, and a lot more. The exploration of sexuality at an early age, falling for a friend and accepting herself are written beautifully by the author.
I liked how the author presented the frustrations of a lesbian woman when she falls for a straight woman. And that really made my heart clench. The struggles she faces from the moment she identifies her sexuality to finding her love, losing it and going through the grief are very well written in the form of poems and it is kind of incredible.
Each poem is a song sung back to the many wonderful women in her life. After all, they shaped the way she sees desire, love, pain, strength and many more emotions, thus helping her define life and evolve.
Margaret DeRitter is a promising author. She crafted the poems very well. I look forward to reading more of her works. I received this book from Librarything for an honest review.
What Matters Most by Helen Bea Kirk is a cool book. It was a quick and easy read. Thanks to #Booktasters for introducing me to this wonderful author Helen. The female lead in this book Meagan is a very strong and independent character. I liked her very much. I like how she didn’t lose hope and didn’t give up when she was robbed. She is someone who fights for what she loves and she definitely is an inspiration. King, the male lead is a nice man. He is a tough man with a soft heart. He loves his family very much and goes to any extent to protect them. I hated Gayla, King’s girlfriend at the start but I was very much impressed how the author turned her story around. I must say every single character in this book has a story of their own and it feels very realistic.
I totally enjoyed the book myself. I recommend this to all ages. The establishment of characters is very well done. The title justifies the story, after all, FAMILY is WHAT MATTERS MOST!
Stud is a Motor Club Romance and I am totally in love with this book. This is the second book from the Dragon Runners series. The narration by ML Nystrom is amazing. The story is totally engaging and I couldn’t put it away until the last page. Stud is an amazing character and I love him. Eva is one hell of a heroine. She is not a regular helpless girl but a very strong woman who can throw a punch or two when needed. She works on the construction site like a man but also holds a passion for sewing in her heart. I thought it was very very cute. Stud has a bad past and terrible relationship with his family but he finds love and trust at the biker’s club. The story says character, trust and honesty among family members are more important than riches and false prestige. I was not that much into motor club stories and biker romances and now my opinion has completely changed.
I want to read more and more books from ML Nystrom. I must say she has a magic in her writing. I can’t wait to read her next book. The pace is perfect, situations are very realistic, characters are strong and beautiful and the story is subtle. Stud is a wonderful read.

I am honored to be a reviewing member of Onlinebookclub.org. The first book I received is Guardian of Deceit by William H. Coles. It was a good read with plenty of drama, which I felt kind of too much for me. Click here for the review I wrote for the website.
