I came across this author on facebook and I m glad I did While this is not my usual genre of reading, I will definitely be looking forward to of Shannon s stories I sat down with kindle and coffee and before I knew, I had read the entire book I was just that hooked While I did not find this scarey, what I did find is that it made me think, because you see, sometimes it s not things that go bump in the night that terrify us, it s what is in our past that comes back to haunt us You will not go wr [...]
Such a fun yet scary read There is a Stephen King like quality to the writing and yet it is distinctly feminine I highly suggest it
I love short stories For me, it s like ordering a sample platter Some things you find yourself gobbling down, greedy for other things you taste but leave you uncertain about how you feel about it.These stories are no exception.From supernatural excitement of Papa Was a Gypsy to an almost faustian type 1 32PM I never knew what to expect on the next page.Some compared the stories to Stephen King and I agree to a pointbut I felt of his Bachman side I haven t experienced the brutal, gritty, in your [...]
Ms Celebi did her job well as an author by taking this reader on a roller coaster ride of emotions Short stories are tricky little beasts to write, you only have a minimal amount of time to get your reader invested and the author nails it with this book I went from being mortified as well as sickened by the injustice of Papa was a Gypsy the best story in the book in my opinion to enraged at the protagonist s lack of confidence in Driving Off Bridges then lulled into submission by After Spring Co [...]
These aren t your typical ghost stories Sometimes the things that haunt you most aren t the spirits in the closet or the monsters under the bed Sometimes, the ghosts are in your past and the monsters all in your mind I highly recommend these short stories to anyone who enjoys a good old fashioned scary read and to those looking for a fresh perspective on what ghosts really are.
This is a can t put it down until it s done kind of book Wonderful stories I ll never again see an apple without thinking Elma.
Fascinating stories The stories were written well I love the reasons for the stories that are explained after each one Can t wait to read by this author
Creepy fun Quick stories
This author and book caught my eye due to the title Small Town Ghosts Damn good title right there I m always a bit wary of indie authors and ebooks given the veritable Mos Eisley sp of unedited and downright terrible works out there, so I put the book on my wish list to investigate later However, when I saw that both Small Town Ghosts and Small Town Demons were free for Halloween, I jumped at the chance to check them out risk free, as it were I love unsettling Urban Fantasy Horror type stories, [...]
what an amazing read of short stories, although to me they were not scary but still held some mystery and I enjoyed reading, looking forward to the next book of short storiesIf your wanting something lite to read to pass a few hours, I suggest picking up this book.Happy Reading
Wonderfully woven tales of fascinating characters Every story seems real and possible, even when they re not Shannon Celebi is an incredible writer Not my genre but definitely my taste
This was fabulous I m not even sure how I came across this book, I m guessing Facebook, but I m glad I did All the stories captured my attention and left me wanting Definitely will read
The book kept me on my toes and made me want to keep reading The only thing I was a little disappointed in was the ending However, I can see a squeal in the making which I will read.
This is a collection of 5 stories, usually mixed with murder or suicide with some voodoo thrown in for flavor The first one has lots of murder and is the most supernatural of the group Stories two and three are about mentally ill people fighting with their private ghosts Number four is about a stripper, and truthfully, I didn t understand it even though I read it twice Number five was about a child in a time warp Rather than scary, the stories were unsettling It didn t take long to read, but I c [...]
Loved it I don t normally read short stories I really enjoyed these Very thought provoking A little weird, but I had to finish each one.
I wasn t reall impressed by this book, hard to follow It was a quick read, but not one I would keep on my bookshelf.
