A Quiet Place by Peter D. Burchard

Review A Quiet Place by Peter D. Burchard wasn’t a bad book necessarily but it just felt kinda… pointless? Not really sure how I felt about it. Lots of meaningless descriptions and very little in the way of plot or characterization. I came out of the book not knowing a single thing about the characters – I felt that far removed from them. The story centres around Cindy a young […]

When We Were by Alexandra Diaz

He is a kid who seems to have everything going […]

Tristant and Elijah by Jennifer Lavoie

I really enjoyed Jennifer Lavoie’s debut novel Andy Squared so when I saw this book on Netgalley I just knew I had to request it. I was over the moon when I was approved – thank you Bold Stroke Books! Tristant and Elijah was a really sweet story about an out high-school boy called Tristant who, along with his long-time crush Elijah, uncovers a somewhat illicit-sounding letter in amongst his great-uncle’s belongings.
