It’s my turn on the blog tour for Let Your Lips Twitch by R.A Clarke! Read on to see what I thought of the book!
Synopsis: Comedy is everywhere if you allow yourself to see it—to feel it. It can be subtle or overt,
dark or joyous, adorable or cheeky. Such ageless versatility is beyond compare. Curated
with that in mind, author R.A. Clarke proudly presents sixteen humorous stories to the
Between these covers, you’ll find short fiction in several genres. Each tale is infused with
unique characters and comical situations, some rooted in reality, others certainly not.
Flip the page and join a jewel heist executed by bumbling thieves at a gastronomy party,
meet a lowly soul gifted the fantastical chance to redo an all-consuming moment of
regret, or sweat alongside a father as he realizes his daughter is growing up too fast.
Turn another page and you’ll enjoy clowning around while meeting Mr. Right, then
zoom in on a perfectly focused meet cute, or feel Mother Nature’s wrath as a rebellious
fishing excursion goes all kinds of wrong. There is something in this collection for
everyone to enjoy, including eight never-before-seen stories.
Allow yourself to be entertained and whisked away. Let humour in all its glorious forms
tempt your lips to move. Don’t fight the urge. Embrace it. Go ahead and let your lips
This was such a fun collection of short stories! Not all, but most of them made my lips twitch and they were the perfect little bite sized reads to act as a palette cleanser for all the bigger books I have been reading.
I definitely have some favorites of the bunch. I think my top 3 would be one where the bottom half of a horse in a play ends up having some bowel issues while the play is happening, the one where it is a child’s birthday party and the entertainment can’t make it, and the one where someone is granted the opportunity to go back in time and redo something from their past. I can’t say more without giving anything away for each so you will have to check it out to read them.
Each story was very unique and fun and kept you reading on and on. Some were even only 3 pages! This is definitely a collection you will fly through.
Book Rating: 4/5
