Let me tell you though, no matter how long it takes you, you want to have a copy of this book, maybe not to own, but somehow you want to be holding a copy because you want to read this book.
“Before I Go” is a debut novel by Colleen Oakley. I learned of this 309 (Hardcover) book late 2014 as it would be an early January 2015 release. From the very first time I read what this book would be I was hooked and couldn’t wait to get my hands on a copy. Sadly, I wouldn’t have a hold of this book until the later half of the year.

While reading I found many truths throughout the book that I didn’t know I wanted voiced. Dellaira is able to put words to feelings and situations that would otherwise be understood by most, but not necessarily voiced by any of those who were experiencing such things.
Love Letters to the Dead, by Ava Dellaira was one of those books, that when read, are either a hit or miss. With the initial talk and reviews about the book I was intrigued immediately.

Well writers, it’s that time of year again. We have once again come full circle to a time that makes us stay up way too late, stop socializing, we shy away from social media, like YouTube. We no longer play our favorite video games, we forget the TV for awhile, some of us even forget to eat (guilty), and the only thing, besides writing, we actually try to fit in is reading.
