Names I Call My Sister had two strikes against it when I picked it up for review. First, it isn't a novel, it's four novellas, and I am notoriously impatient when it comes to short fiction, and secondly, the cover is a little dull. Which is a real shame, because the quick-fire, funny reads inside are anything but.

I was disappointed with this book. From the title and the cover I didn't think it was just going to be sex stories. I don't have anything against this kind of fiction, but it's not my cup of tea.

The writing isn't great, and some of the stories just aren't interesting or are completely predictable (the first two especially). This is just quick read mass-market junk.

I wish I wasn't the type of person who has to finish what they start reading.

This was ok. I think part of my problem with the book is that I don't really like short story anthologies because just when I start to get attached to the characters, the story ends. The authors are all gifted writers, I just wish there were more story.

Four very different stories about sisterhood, with much more drama than my sisters and I have. A couple of them have some adult material in them.

I only read half of the short stories because although they were interesting, the end of each story was disappointing.

I'm the author of this book and I loved the time I spent with Dori, Sela and Grammy. Dori and Grammy continue their adventures in Lost in the Light.

Very entertaining. Just a plain old feel good read. Four stories about different sister relationship with interesting scenarios and story lines. Very enjoyable.
