Blogtour, Giveaway and Review: Wolf in Gucci Loafers (Tales of the Harker Pack #2) – Tara Lain

Blogtour, Giveaway and Review: Wolf in Gucci Loafers (Tales of the Harker Pack #2) – Tara Lain

*I received a free ARC of Wolf in Gucci Loafers from Enchantress of Books Blogtours in exchange of an honest review* Wolf in Gucci Loafers is exciting, filled with tension, and the characters involved are very easy to like – at least the good guys are. I already enjoyed Lindsey a lot in The Pack or the Panther, and here, in his own story, he truly shines! I love his personality, and his quirkiness. He’s a rich heir, but that’s not what is important about him, he spends quite a bit of money on himself, clothes and cars mostly, but he also uses his riches to help those who are less fortunate than him. The way Lindsey deals with his […]

Review: Rush – Nyrae Dawn

Review: Rush – Nyrae Dawn

*I received a free ARC of Rush from Forever (Grand Central Publishing) via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Rush is a very apt new adult romance about two boys who have been in love for ages, but both of them are scared about coming out. Brandon is afraid he won’t be able to play college football if his team-mates know he’s gay, and Alec has been listening to his dad’s gay-slurs for as long he can remember. Even if they haven’t seen each other in a long time, they are both really attached to each other, and when Charlotte, Alec’s best friend, calls him to let him know Brandon has been seriously hurt in an accident a while […]

Review: Frenemy of the People – Nora Olsen

Review: Frenemy of the People – Nora Olsen

*I received a free ARC of Frenemy of the People from Bold Strokes Books, Inc via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Frenemy of the People is a really interesting and tender story, both because of the LGBT angle but also because the two main characters are both well done, fleshed out and manage to see behind the façade they are both keeping up. I also enjoyed that Clarissa’s sister has Downs syndrome, because it was a way to tell a beautiful story, and also to show at the same time how hurt people can be from words others throw around without really thinking about what they are saying. And especially Lexie is always willing to educate herself, and […]

Review: Few Are Chosen – Storm Grant

Review: Few Are Chosen – Storm Grant

*I received a free copy of Few Are Chosen from the author in exchange of an honest review* Few are Chosen is a sweet paranormal young adult story where two boys meet and fall in love under pretty strange circumstances. There are demons, fights, and a creepy cemetery. As many other teenagers before them, both Blake and Shadow think they know better than the adults, and they are pretty sure they can fight their fights on their own. It was a little funny to see how differently they have been raised, even if they’re both basically demon-hunters. Blake thinks he is The Chosen, whereas Shadow has always known that he’s the chosen one from his coven. When they fight a […]

#COYER Review: One Man Guy – Michael Barakiva

*I received a free ARC of One Man Guy from Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* What can I say? One Man Guy blew me away! Alek is a very young protagonist, but he is a great one all the same, as are the other characters in this story. I loved it all! From sibling rivalry to being confused about his sexuality, to living up to his parents expectations while at the same time wanting to be himself, I was taken on a beautiful journey with this book. Told with such tenderness, One Man Guy is a coming of age novel, in which the main character, Alek, has to deal with what starts out […]

#COYER Review: The Wicked We Have Done (Chaos Theory #1) – Sarah Harian

*I received a free ARC of The Wicked We Have Done from Penguin via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* The Wicked We Have Done is a chilling and mesmerizing story, taking humanity to the very limit of morality and ethics, filled with uneasy friendships and wrapped up in a pretty ugly and messy parcel. The parcel itself is the story, the relationships, the way the characters are forced together, and the sheer terror of their situation. Five young women and five young men, who would possible have been sentenced to death are rather sent to a the Compass Room, where their moral compass is supposed to be assessed by way of illusions and how the triggers make them […]

Review: Because of Her – K.E. Payne

Review: Because of Her – K.E. Payne

*I received a free ARC of Because of Her from Bold Strokes Books via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Because of Her is a different kind of YA romance, as it involves a main character who is lesbian, and not afraid anymore because she has figured out that people who judge her are not the ones who would really be her true friends and present in her life anyway. After moving to London, she is upset with the whole world because she is far away from her girlfriend, Amy. Tabby has new friends in school, and they are very supportive of her in every way. There is also this girl she can’t help but watch from afar. Eden […]

Giveaway, Blogtour Review: The Pack or the Panther – Tara Lain

When Cole’s parents simply inform him of his impending marriage to the neighboring pack’s daughter who is also a future alpha-wolf, he tries to tell them it’s a really bad idea, it’s not as if they don’t know he’s gay, but saving the pack is more important to them than Cole’s happiness. Cole, too thinks […]

Blogtour Review: Stripped Clean – Ellis Carrington

*I received a free ARC of Stripped Clean from Enchantress of Books Blogtour in exchange of an honest review* Welcome to my stop on the Stripped Clean blogtour. This is yet another book for which I participated in the cover reveal, and I just had to sign up for the blogtour because the blurb was so awesome!

Review: A Tale of Two Mommies – Vanita Oelschlager

Review: A Tale of Two Mommies – Vanita Oelschlager

*I received a free ARC of A Tale of Two Mommies from Vanita Books via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* In a Tale of Two Mommies, a little boy who has two moms meets two new, very curious friends on the beach one day. They ask him all kinds of questions about which mom does what – and I was perplexed at how this is party also due to gender roles, not only because he has two moms instead of one mom and one dad, or only one parent (or grand-parent or aunt / uncle etc). Like, who can fix what is broken? had the underlying meaning of ‘since there are no men in your house’, at least […]
