Review: T Book Review Book Title: A Cup of Roses, Stories by 8 Writers Book Author: Fiona Gold Kroll, Ruth Frankel-Graner, Gerda Frieberg, Carol Green, Sam Hoffer, Raizie Jacobson, David Rapoport, Jenny Roger. Introduction: I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads. As per usual, I was having a particular type of book craving - today it was anthology, and an overall short read. A Cup of Roses filled the bill, so I decided to pick it up and got so hooked I finished it in one sitting. Review: This anthology holds many different types of stories - humor, religion, drama, romance, food, history, joy, poetry, tragedy and so much more. For being so little, you wouldn't expect much of an impact, but this book really had me interested and wanting more. The book is incredibly easy to read, and each story is not to short but also not to long. The individual stories each have their own focus, none of which really seem connected. This helped me out when I began to get bored with a few of the short stories - each one had it's own plot it centered around and did not depend on the others. These standalone stories are all well written, and are all written in different writing styles (since there are many authors that created this anthology). Was this book my top, all time favourite anthology? No. Did it rank high? Yes. While it doesn't get the gold, it definitely gets second place in my books. While the book didn't wow my socks off, it did give me an interesting perspective into many different aspects of the writers lives/imagination. I wasn't expecting to have to think or have my opinions rattled with this book, but it does just that. And as a reader and reviewer, I love a book that makes me think and form different opinions - or just gives me insight into something I haven't thought about before. I don't have any recommendations for how to make this little series of stories better. It's perfect in it's own little way. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone and everyone who wants to read an anthology that doesn't have one clear focus (and doesn't have a connection between all of them). It's great for a rainy day, a small lunch break, a school project, or just as a different type of read. Would I want more from these authors? Absolutely. I enjoyed each story - while not all of them had my hooked to every word, they were all beautifully written and well thought out. I didn't want to put the book down, I had to keep going (which is rare. Often I can set a book down and forget about it for a while, but I didn't want to leave this book behind. I had to finish it). Overall, this was an incredible read. I enjoyed each story, I felt educated, and the book made me think. Four out of five stars.

    Stories by 8 writers, very short stories, ideal for that ten minute gap in your day. Some are lighthearted some tales of love and tribulations. All different and all easy to read. found myself reading it quickly. Loved the idea of ten minute read. between cooking the dinner and doing chores. ideal for a bus ride or waiting at the doctors etc.

    A Cup of Roses is an anthology from a writers group started by Ruth Frankel-Garner. Eight different writers shared stories that rang from the serious-WWII, to the light hearted-trying to buy a pair of pants , with even a few recipes thrown in. Each story is well written and I enjoyed reading each one. This was a free book from Goodreads.
