Pictures of You – ’90s Coming of Age #1
Blogtour , Bookreview / October 23, 2016

This book was send to me as an ARC and a request for a review, so here it is guys. First of all, as you all know I love stories that play in high school and coming of age stories, so I had high hopes for this one going by the title alone. And I was not disappointed. Peter Mandel is 18 and very private. He is a photography freak and can always be seen with a camera around his neck or close at hand. He is gay but prefers to keep it a secret to everyone. But when Adam Algedi joins the class for the senior year everything changes for Peter. Adam makes it very clear that he wants Peter, but it can never be out in the open. At home behind closed doors they can do whatever they want, but outside they can only be friends and nothing more. And so begins a journey of first love, first sex and a lot of secrets. Sometimes Peter has enough of all the secrets and just wants Adam to be open about their relation, but Adam always manages to talk him out of it. But when Adam gets a girlfriend…

Spy Stuff
Bookreview / October 6, 2016

Spy Stuff by Matthew J Metzger is actually the first story I ever read that has a transgender character in the main lead. And I can tell you, I loved it. It broke my hear, made me laugh and cry and I just could not stop reading it until the very end. Absolute brilliance. Anton is transgender, he was born a girl and is now a boy. And because of that he thinks he will never be loved by anyone. After all, who would want a transgender boyfriend. He can hide it only for so long, but as soon as someone finds out they run for the hills. Until there is someone that doesn’t. Jude Kalinowski is as straight as they come, or so Anton always thought. Very very attractive for sure, but someone like Jude would never go for him. But when Jude does ask him out, Anton doesn’t know what to do. At some point he will have to tell the truth, but is there ever a good time to do that? And what will happen when Jude finds out what Anton is hiding? Anton slowly relaxed as Jude started to brighten up and just … talk. Jude…

Jerkbait
Bookreview / July 30, 2016

Jerkbait by Mia Siegert is one of those books that seems to be all the rage for a few days and than just fade away in the background again. All of a sudden this book is inescapable, you seem to see it everywhere. So than I decide to read it because it must be really good when everyone is talking about it. And then it just isn’t…. I mean it is not bad, but I certainly don’t understand the hype about it. What makes this book so very special? This book would fall in the YA category I guess, since it seems to be dealing with high school kids. Tristan and Robbie are identical twins, but they don’t seem to be sharing all that much. Tristan is the shy one, Robbie is the outgoing and popular one. So when Robbie tries to kill himself and fails everyone is in shock. Why would he do such a thing when there seems to be no reason for it. Because someone needs to keep an eye on Robbie their parents force them to share a room together and that causes all kinds of problems. Neither boy has any privacy left and Tristan is…

Simon vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda
Bookreview / March 24, 2016

Simon vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda is one of those books no one has ever heard about, but all of a sudden the book is a big hit and it seems the whole world is reading it at the same time. It was give to me by a friend and since I am somewhat of a fan of the YA genre I read it. But quite frankly I don’t get the whole wow thing…. Simon Spier is 16 years old and gay, although he prefers to hide that last fact. The only other person in the world who knows about it is Blue, the pen name for the boy he has been e-mailing for quite a while now. He has no idea who the boy is but he has confessed quite a lot in those e-mails. So when they fall in to the wrong hands trouble might be around the corner. Martin knows about the mails Simon has been sending and is now blackmailing him into playing his wing man or else…. And worse of all, Blue’s privacy will also be compromised. Simon has no idea what to do now. His contact with Blue is getting more and more flirty…

The History of Us
Bookreview / December 22, 2015

The History of Us is the first YA novel I read by Nyrae Dawn, but if they are all this good it will certainly not be the last. This book is so emotional and so heart felt it will stay with you for days after you read it. I loved every page of it and I will certainly read it again and again in the future. Bradley Collins is 18 years old and recently came out as gay. No problems there, his life goes on as usual. He has never met any other gay people, but why would he need them anyway. He’s got his friends and his sports so what more could he need? TJ is a major film freak and he really likes Bradley. But when he tries to flirt with Bradley in front of his friends, Bradley flips out. Never has another guy flirted with him and most certainly not in front of his best friends. What would they be thinking? Bradley decides to join TJ on a road trip for his senior project documentary. TJ has set out to record the history of gay America and wants to meet up with all kinds of people from…

Author Interview Mia Kerick
Author Interview , Blogtour , Bookteaser / December 7, 2015

Today I’m very lucky to have an author interview with Mia Kerick, author of Clean Hi Mia, thank you for agreeing to this interview. Tell us a little about yourself, your background, and your current book. Hello, and thank you very much for welcoming me to your blog today to promote the release of my new YA LGBTQ Edgy Contemporary Romance, Clean. Favorite thing about building your own world? I write contemporary fiction, so I do not create fantasy worlds, but I do enjoy a certain sense of freedom when I create my own “typical New England town” because it can have any restaurants I choose, any landscape that fills my needs, be of any income level I want—there are few restrictions. What inspired you to write your first book? My sister was hugely inspiring in writing my first book, as she has always been my role model. And about five years ago, she wrote a book, so I followed suit. She however, is still perfecting her very first book, and I have written 15 books. Do you have a specific writing style? I write from the heart… what feels and sounds right. I use a combination of very long sentences separated…
