Friday Reads: Paper Souls by Allie Burke

I would never read a book if it were possible for me to talk half an hour with the man who wrote it.— Woodrow Wilson


I’m going to have to disagree with Wilson here. I have spent many hours talking with Allie Burke and I will devour every word the woman writes. She is the best of the best, a true literary genius.





Paper Souls took my breath away, and I inhaled it within hours of its arrival. The only way I could have gotten Allie’s exquisite words in faster was if I had eaten the book. One week after I had closed Paper Souls, I opened it back up again, and I walked the gut wrenchingly beautiful journey that Allie wrote while in the depths of a schizophrenic psychosis.


I’m not going to give you any spoilers, I’m just going to say that there is something in this book for everyone and what you take away from it may surprise you. Allie Burke is phenomenal, and this book has the potential to save your life. Paper Souls is one of my top five all time favourite books, I highly recommend it to everyone.


A Bestselling Author, NPO VP, and Psychology Today Blogger from Burbank, California, Allie Burke writes books she can’t find in the bookstore. Having been recognized as writing a “kickass book that defies the genre it’s in”, Allie writes with a prose that has been labeled poetic and ethereal.

Her life is a beautiful disaster, flowered with the harrowing existence of inherited eccentricity, a murderous family history, a faithful literature addiction, and the intricate darkness of true love. These are the enchanting experiences that inspire Allie’s fairytales.

Allie founded The OCH Literary Society  and magazine for all who strive for, appreciate, and seek out the art of the written word. It is a place for writers, readers, professors, bibliophiles, editors, designers, and literary enthusiasts to come together to celebrate the passion of words on the page and to celebrate the best of the best in literary fiction.
