Sing Your Sadness Deep by Laura Mauro

There is something to be said for books that you can’t put down. Where the stories pull you in and don’t let go. Where the horror creeps up on you. At first you think you are safe….but in reality you aren’t. The false sense of security it lovely….until you no longer are safe. Sing Your Sadness Deep by Laura Mauro was one of those horror sleepers.

Synopsis: Collections of short stories that are set all over from the Arizona Desert to a Frozen Finnish lake.

What I liked: There is so much to unpack in this collection. Personally, I think that love and acceptance take the center stage in many of the stories that Mauro writes. Mauro weaves love through the horror of many of the stories which such ease which says a lot about her as a writer. Mauro’s writing style is smooth and flows so well throughout the stories. The arrangement of the short stories was spot on and they flowed well with each other. Even though many of the stories were set in different places Mauro brought out the beauty and the harshness in each book.

What I didn’t like: There was nothing I didn’t like

Star Rating: 5 Stars

My Thoughts: Mauro is a helluva a writer. She is able to take very mundane situations and really twist them. I have to say the first story gave me the feels…shape shifting and stories and love. There are so many different things that I want to talk about but I don’t want to ruin the book for anyone. But I will say this Undertow is a publisher to really keep your eye on!!
