Welcome! This will primarily be a LGBT and M/M only book zone. With lots of sprinkles of YA! :) I also occasionally enjoy paranormal and urban fantasy MF series as well.
If we share similar tastes, friend me on GR here:
I like JL Merrow's British humor so I generally enjoy her books. This had a cute premise, with the MC pretending to be a comic book geek to impress his crush. I think ultimately it was the short length that stopped me from really caring since their courtship was so summarily rushed. I enjoyed the humorous dialogue, but I didn't find the second half as funny as the first. Cute enough if you are itching for a really quick read, but I wouldn't say it's a must-read if you're a fan. For newbies, I would recommend checking her other book Pressure Head (so excited for the upcoming sequel later this month!!) for a good taste of her writing.
This was very, very unique and creepy. Who knew fairies could be creepy? The cover makes it look like a straight-up children's book but this book will really be enjoyable for older because it's a little twisted and bizarre. In fact, the ending, while good, was a little too bizarre and out there for me. I would rate the first half 5 stars and the second half 3. This kind of reminded me of Angelfall, which also had an original, creepy twist on a popular supernatual species (angels) and an MC with a mentally ill mother and a little sister. I think this book did do a whole lot better on the characterizations and romance aspects and I don't see why this is not as popular. Even if this genre is something you're normally bored with, definitely try this because it's way more fun and weird than the average typical YA.
This book crept up on me. I think it's best to go in without any expectations. I didn't read any reviews, just skimmed the blurb. So it was the best surprise. It's more than just a romance, which was great, but I considered a small side plot to the main story. It's about a deaf kid and his gay single father living in a Southern town. This is not an angsty story, but I did shed some tears of frustration. And while I raged, I also frequently chuckled at some of the outrageous humor. It's not without flaws, but it offered me a blunt, hard, and honest look into a life and place that I didn't know much about. I enjoyed and appreciated every moment.
I loved the first book; it was unique and different. I think most people who loved it too will be able to enjoy this one. And I appreciate the author wrote a sequel. Unfortunately, this kind of dissolved into a hot mess for me, and I finally gave up after the bizarre screaming match in which two grown men reverted to high school teenage girls. I officially stopped at 60%, and then skimmed all the way to the ending. None of the new side characters interested me, and I missed the magic of the first book. A little sad, but likely this is just my problem, and I'm sure you will enjoy this book more.
I loved this. It took over my life. I was completely engrossed in this gorgeous new world, the writing, the characters, all of them. Lochlan, Adam, Kae. I absolutely hated reaching the end and having to say goodbye. I'm going to dream about this tonight. Really recommend trying this if you're in the mood for some sci-fi. And that it is LGBT is only a huge plus for me.
I don't think I can write the awesome review this book deserves. Fortunately there are already some amazing ones, on goodreads. I'll try to write more when I get back home.
