Wow, wow, wow! This is really good and I would LOVE to be able to read more in this universe! ( )

A borrowed life is better than none.

This was a little chilly and unsettling.
Lovely and atmospheric.

VERDICT : TRY! ( )

Probably more of a 3.5.

I love the author but I didn’t even know about this short story until I saw it nominated in FIYAH’s IGNYTE awards, and I had to read it immediately. It has a bit of a spooky vibe and I don’t usually go for such stuff, but I enjoyed the main character’s desire to have a better life and the mirror boy’s intention of helping people during some of the worst times of their lives, doing so by against his true nature. They both do make a good duo. Beautiful writing as always and it really makes you feel every word. ( )

A quick read, but an interesting story, I enjoyed it. ( )

I realize I am seeing for the first time the shape of her back, the geography of her spine.

I'm not even sure how to describe this, but I absolutely loved it. ( )
