Some bodies won’t stay buried. Some stories need to be told.
When seventeen-year-old Rowan Chase finds a skeleton on her family’s property, she has no idea that investigating the brutal century-old murder will lead to a summer of painful discoveries about the past, the present, and herself.
One hundred years earlier, a single violent encounter propels seventeen-year-old Will Tillman into a racial firestorm. In a country rife with violence against blacks and a hometown segregated by Jim Crow, Will must make hard choices on a painful journey towards self discovery and face his inner demons in order to do what’s right the night Tulsa burns.
Dreamland Burning is a story that I didn’t know about. This story is told in two perspectives Rowan (a mixed black girl) and Willam (white guy living in 1921 Jim Crow era) Both perspectives live in Tulsa oklahoma. William side of the story talks about a lot racism during his time and the riots in Tulsa. William has to go along with his friends and family because where he lives it’s a very racist town. Blacks are treated unfair and even are killed.
Rowan perspective is present time she found human remains in her back shed behind the house. For the most part of the story she is trying to find out who the body is and how it ended up around her house.
I have to be honest I was excited to read this but about 20% in I realized I didn’t like how the book was written or set up. It became confusing at times. I did listen to this on audio and at one point I wanted to DNF it but it’s fairly quick especially listening on the speed I listen to it at. I think overall the idea behind this story was great now I want to know more about the Tusla riots. But this was just okay not amazing at all. Maybe at a later date I may re read this but for now this is like a 2.75 star rating.
**January Buzzwordathon read – theme dream**
Rating: 2.75 ⭐⭐⭐
This was a cute and imaginative story about a man, a bridge troll, and starbucks lol. I liked the pace of this story and how calm everything was. I wanted to know more about the bridge troll and why she was there, but I understand these are short stories. Overall it was cute and I enjoyed the writing too.
It’s raining, it’s pouring– Wait, nobody’s snoring. They’re in the bed, or on the couch, or maybe the counter… and will definitely have a good morning.
After five years, Aleigha has walked out of her job. But then her ex-boss gets stuck at her house because of the weather, and thunder won’t be the only thing clapping.
This is the second book in The Nights This series. This story follows Aleigha and her ex boss Brent. Brent is a supreme asshole and treats Aleigha like shit while at work.
Aleigha had enough and quit her job so she wouldn’t have to deal with Brent anymore. On a rainy night Brent and Aleigha worked out their issues and sexual frustrations.
This was a good story and I enjoyed the sex scenes. Now I know why Brent is a dick in the workplace, all because he wanted Aleigha.
