Nothing Serious (re-release)
Bookreview / August 11, 2018

Lately the lovely Jay Northcote has started re realising some of his earlier work with an updated cover. This book is one of them, I already blogged about it back in 2015. You can read that blog right here. Back then I said I wasn’t a big fan of Northcote, but that has certainly changed a lot. I read this story again and with great pleasure also. It is still a recommended story that everyone should read.

The Little Things
Bookreview / July 21, 2018

I have actually blogged about this book before right here but it has now been republished with a different cover. The story is still the same, it’s only the cover that has changed. The story was already heartbreaking in 2015, but in 2018 it is just as heartbreaking. I just could not finish this story without a few tears in my eyes, and that means it is a very good story. Joel is gay, but a one night drunken affair with his best friend makes him a father and he loves his little girl Evie very much. Shared custody with Claire makes sure he sees Evie a lot and they are enjoying life. Joel even has a boyfriend Dan, so could life be any better? Then one night misfortune strikes and leaves Evie without a mother and now permanently in the care of Joel, who has to learn to live without his best friend. His relationship with Dan is strained, but he needs to put his daughter first, even before Dan. In the end their relationship cracks and they both decide it is best to separate. So now Joel is alone with his daughter and has to adjust to a new…

Second Chance
Bookreview / July 15, 2018

Second Chance by Jay Northcote is a new book by one of the greatest authors I know. Every single thing he publishes is an automatic buy for me. This book was no difference, but it was given to me as an eARC. It is not autobiographical, but because of the subject could be considered somewhat personal.

Jack’s returned home to get his life in order after an addiction to alcohol caused him to lose everything: his job, his driver’s licence, and nearly his life. He’s living with his parents, which is less than ideal, but rekindling his friendship with Nate—or Nat…

Starting from Scratch – Housemates #5
Bookreview / April 30, 2017

And for another day, another wonderful novel from the even more wonderful Jay Northcote. It was send to me as an ARC and let me tell you, I LOVE this story. In the few weeks I have had it, I must have read it at least 5 times already and I know I will be reading it again and again. I love the whole Housemates series, but I especially love this part. Starting from Scratch is part 5 in the series, my reviews for part 1, part 2, part 3 and part 4 can also be found on this blog.
