This compilation, the first in a series of books with short stories, is short enough to read over a cup of tea or coffee, or whenever you have some time to yourself, yet long enough to bring a tear to your eye or a smile to your face. In fact some people call them “bathroom stories” as that might be the only place you get five minutes peace and quiet to yourself.
Honestly, it's short about 73 pages or so.....and the stories are so different from one to the other.
Thankfully you'll know if you need a tissue or not...the author has put a tissue icon by the title of all the stories the are deemed cry worthy.
Trust me when I say TAKE THAT ADVICE!!!!
I really LOVED that each story is short so you can read one and come back to the book and read another later without feeling like you have to remember where you left off.
The stories themselves are so much fun to read....they could be about real people, which we all know adds to any story.
I think one of my favorite stories from this book was "Why"....it wasn't a tissue story, but it was a sweet story all the same.
No, I won't tell you anything about it other than it takes place in a bar in another country...the rest I guess you'll have to buy the book and see for yourself.
(I know I'm not nice....but you still like me....LOL)
