Veronica’s #WritersDiary, Extra, Extra! #Thanksgiving Reads (Pssst, Zero Calories!)

Happy #ThanksgivingEve everyone (and if you’re not in the U.S., join on in the celebration!)! The Thanksgiving holiday to me is a time to be with family and friends to reflect on the blessings received, and give thanks to those before us who made it all possible (and of course indulge in all things caloric). This year, I’m particularly focused on the topics of the week, friends and family, and all that these relationships entail–the #romance, the #dramas, the #happiness, the #sorrows, the #history and #comingof age, and the arrival of the #holidays.

So, in the spirit of feeding the soul (while not taking in extra calories, #score) this Thanksgiving week, I thought I’d highlight some of the #writers of Twitter whose books have given me much pleasure to #read this past year, in the genres focusing on the topics I feel are particularly special this week. I wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration, filled with bountiful blessings and fun! #Cheers! It’s Wednesday, time for #DearDiary:

The zombie apocalypse explodes this week from the #writers of Twitter…

Author Ellie Douglas, The Dead Wake, Horror Colection, Vol. 1, 5 STARS

The terrors of an undead apocalypse unfold in this thrill filled collection of horror by Author Ellie Douglas. We are given a first hand view of how the a simple act unleashes a zombiesque plague determined to spread and proliferate, destroying life as we know it everywhere. We witness the terror of the victims as the plague of the undead spreads, with a plentitude of bone crunching, blood spewing gore.

I was mesmerized by this collection of short stories, each set in different locations as the pandemic events unfold, giving the victims’ perspective of the confusion, chaos and terror that would erupt in such a horrific event. Author Douglas does a superb job in giving the reader the raw emotions and dismal realizations of the victims as they try every last means to survive against a gruesome end. This is a page turning read, and one I couldn’t put down (as I read peaking under the covers, lol). Be forewarned, there is extreme gruesomeness and sexual content. This horror collection will have your spine tingling, highly recommended!
