The Zero Knot by K.Z. Snow

The Zero Knot was certainly different from the types of books I normally read but I really enjoyed it. Set in small-town America, it is the story of two friends Jess and Dylan (nicknamed Mig) coming to terms with the fact they are gay and that they also have feelings for each other. There is some angst involved (relating to coming out etc.) but overall the two protagonists are generally […]

Suicide Watch by Kelley York

Is it possible to feel depressed and uplifted at the same time? I love books that make me feel and Suicide Watch hit me in the feels – hard.

Paper Valentine by Brenna Yovanoff

Wow. This is my first Brenna Yovanoff book. I will definitely be reading the rest of her books based on the strength of Paper Valentine.

The main character Hannah has recently lost her best friend Lillian, who essentially starved herself to death. Hannah is not really […]

The Shattering by Karen Healey

Karen Healey’s The Shattering was a gripping paranormal thriller that I just could not put down. The story was involving and the characters very authentic and relatable. The novel focuses on three characters: Keri, Janna and Sione. These three teens have something terrible in common – their elder brothers all committed suicide. Keri’s brother is the latest victim. After his death, Janna comes to Keri with the notion that it […]
