Title – Moody

Author – Destiny Henderson

Publisher – Self-Published

Published – September 5th, 2018.

A collection of all ages’ short stories featuring friendship, self-consciousness, love, and ice.

Pink is a Distraction 
Keva Knight liked bright almost obnoxious colors for a reason.

Jo and Terra 
Inspired by the summer heat. A slice-of-life featuring two friends at a gas station.

Play it Cool, Al 
Al is hit with a reverse love confession, job opportunity, and a new perspective of his childhood friend. Of course, his defeatist attitude doesn’t help him.

Ice 
There’s a rumor that Sasha has ice in her blood, and it may be the only thing keeping her alive.

Waiting for Bus 26 
She is waiting at the bus stop when he strolls by with a head full of curls and a navy-blue umbrella.

Dreaded Dinner Party Prologue 
Aucuria “Curi” Andrews is a homeschooled girl who’s tired of her dinner party-throwing parents. Nothing is set to change this latest party until a sabotage attempt and her parents’ reputation is challenged by a cartoonish nasty couple. It’s up to Curi to put a stop to the slander, meet some new faces along the way, such as the mischievous traveler Mister Wolfeman or ambitious Ophelia, and of course, eat some delicious food.

Divider 4.5

I was immediately captivated by this book, because of the cover art and I know the author Destiny did it so that’s very amazing, but the stories and editing of the book still need a lot of work.

The stories in the books are super short! It didn’t take me up to thirty minutes to finish it, so if you’re looking for a short and quick one this book is good for you, but the length of the stories are too short and end too abruptly to really have any significant meaning to the occurrences, they just read like random things that happen, which is why I’m rating this book a 2.5 stars the .5 stars because of the cover art.

The writing is average and didn’t really captivate or hold my attention, even though the stories brought about a lot of questions about the characters I would never know now.

I enjoyed reading Pink is a Distraction which is Keva’s story and I loathe how it ended, and the next story I enjoyed was Waiting for the Bus.

I hope in future some of these stories develop into novellas or novels. Thank you for reading my review.

I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.
