Utterly original, but somehow instantly recognizable characters populate fully realized worlds—some completely magical, others all-too-real. Story after story, I found myself staring at the last page, surprised, satisfied, and wishing for more. Each vignette is a revelation—and so is Kim.” Peyton Price, author of Suburban Haiku: Boys to Men“Kim’s short stories left me breathless. I wish I were one of her characters, or that I could see the world through her eyes even for one day.” Leslie Marinelli, Editor-in-Chief at InThePowderRoom“This collection of short pieces by Kim is amazing. In each story, with few words, Kim shows us an entire world. And that’s not an easy task. I can’t wait for her next book. And if you’re reading this review, stop right now and buy her book.” Janie Emaus, author of Before the After“While I always enjoy Kim’s humorous take on “Let Me Start By Saying” about the everyday adventures of being a stay at home mom, wife and writer, this collection of stories reminds readers that she also has a clear love and talent for fiction writing as well. From beginning to end, the reader is treated with poignant, often sensual stories that leave you wanting to read more, to find out where the characters will take you along next. It’s also a testament to the power of writing groups in that when prompted, great things are created.” Abby Heugel, author of Abby Has Issues“In her debut anthology, Kim Bongiorno brings together a series of 21 brilliant short fictional stories, each with the power to captivate and entertain. The collection covers a range of topics from forbidden love to terror to desire to, what I call, “fairy tales for adults” and more. In many cases, I felt an immediate connection with the central character. Intriguing and unpredictable, each story drew me in and took hold; I even let out a chuckle or two. After reading this magnificent collection, I am certain this isn’t the last we’ll see of this entrancing storyteller. I, for one, very much look forward to seeing what else Kim has up her sleeve.” Stephanie Young, author of How to Eat Healthy Without Noticing“Kim is best known for her humorous writings, but with this collection of short stories she shares her soul with us and allows us to see another side of her.”Jen, author of Spending the Holidays with People I Want to Punch in the Throat“I’ve always loved Kim’s fiction because it doesn’t fling open doors, it only cracks them open, leaving me eager to crash through. Take ‘In The Trees.’ A colorfully articulated hive of creatures that are part animal, part rescue squad? I doubt anyone can read that story without wanting more. Where Kim’s imagination lives is a place I’d like to vacation.” Nicole Leigh Shaw, Writer and Editor“Kim Bongiorno, whom I was first introduced through her humorous writings, has a true talent for more than just her award-winning witty works....

part of my world Reviews
LOVED this book! Laughed OUT LOUD (which I hardly EVER do) when I got to the end of "The Sexy Bitch Next Door." The order of the chapters was brilliant. Kim also really grabbed me with "Revived." I have got to know what happens next! And "Appreciation"? Holy Mother... I want more of that one too. (The bartender sounds like a dreamboat. Rawr!) This book left me breathless. I wish I were one of Kim's characters, or that I could see the world through her eyes even for one day.
This collection of short stories was fabulous! In just a few words, I was transported to different places - and totally hooked. Kim is a talented writer, and I have picked up this book again and again - and it gets better with each read. Loved it!!
My first Goodreads First Reads book completion. I actually started it a couple of months ago and just decided to finish the last half today. Not a long book, but light-hearted in spirit and content. Some old fables with a different twist, some a little more risque than I expected. Overall, a pleasant, short read that was entertaining. If you need a short diversion to help your daytime imagination, this is a perfect book to assist as you fill in the details of her short tales.
Kim has a way with fiction that so many wish they did. I loved moving from chapter to chapter, never quite knowing what world I'd get sucked into. Each story is like a mini vacation. Loved this collection!
I've been a fan of Kim Bongiorno's writing since I first was introduced to it on her blog (Let Me Start By Saying). But even having read her for years, I was blown away by her creativity and talent when I read this book, which I did in one sitting because I couldn't stop turning the pages.
As a mother whose book reading is done in abbreviated snippets, I appreciated how Kim was able to weave a detailed and rich story in just a few pages. I can't wait for her next book!
Short stories are far harder to write than they appear, but Kim Bongiorno has mastered the art. In her eclectic collection, she gives us a delicious taste of 21 worlds using minimal words. Sensual and surprising, inspired and humorous, Part of My World is a magic carpet ride through Kim's wildly creative imagination, and you'll beg for the ride not to end!
