I was granted access to listen to the audiobook performance of Time is a Fine White Lie by the author via The Audiobookworm Promotions in exchange for an honest review as part of my participation in a blog tour for this title. Thank you to all involved for this opportunity! This has not swayed my review; my thoughts are my own and my review is honest.

Short stories, thoughtful musings, snapshots of lives being lived.
Some contain snappy witticisms, observations that make you nod your head, maybe grin as you read them and say, yeah, I get it, I've been there. Others take a more sinister, creepy twist.
The writing is strong, well-crafted, and visual. Some of the stories I really liked, others were chilling.
Readers looking for edgy fiction will absolutely love these short tales.

96% Match and Banged Up are my two favorites. It's easy to sit down and read the whole book in one sitting or one section at a time. You can easily escape with any of the stories which are range from so absurd it would really happen to fantasy. Time is a Fine White Lie contains philosophical musings on society which make you think what would I do in this situation?

If you like the HBO show Room 104, then you'll like this book. It's a quick, weird read. I did appreciate the different voices and tones of each vignette. Definitely doesn't seem like the same person wrote each one, which kept me interested. I like the *idea* of this book but some of the stories were upsetting, I'm not sure if I was in the right headspace for this.
