Adaptation by Malinda Lo

I was very excited to read this book. Not just because it was a dystopian (I love dystopian settings) but because the main protagonist is bisexual – yay for diversity! I have read many LGBT books but very little seem to cover the ‘B’ (even less so the ‘T’) aspect so I was really happy to discover that the main character Reece is attracted to girls as well as boys.

Social Skills by Sara Alva

Social Skills is the debut novel by Sara Alva. I had actually read her second book Silent prior to reading this one and it was so good that I knew I had to read this too.

From the very first […]

The Red Sheet by Mia Kerick was a thoroughly engrossing read. I would go as far to say it is my favourite book that she has written so far (and that is high praise since I really adored Intervention and Not Broken, Just Bent). This is the story of high school jock Bryan Dennison. Bryan is not a nice lad. He is a bit of a bully in fact. He […]

The Dark Tide by Josh Lanyon

The Dark Tide, the fifth (and final book) in the Adrien English series, follows on directly from the events of the previous book Death of a Pirate King. While the previous book had my heart in a vice throughout, this book was much easier to get through, though it did have its fair share of angst. Adrien is recovering from his open-heart surgery, after having gone into cardiac arrest when he was shot […]
