Tomboy by Janelle Reston


GENRE: Lesbian Fiction, Coming of Age, Romance

This was a nice coming of age story set in post WWII America. It dealt with gender stereotypes but in a very positive manner. I would say I find it hard to believe that there was no homophobia at the time period(I know there was) but the author chose to focus on the girls. I also think pre 1960's being gay wasn't shamed or hated as much. It was really quick read with agood messege about being true to yourself.

Collapse (After the Blast, #1) by Kyle Danvers


GENRE: Post Apocalyptic, EMP

This was a well written book about survival after an EMP. I really liked the character of Ashley, she seemed to be a true survivor. I did find the description of her a bit odd since she had recently separated from the military. Overall the pace of the book was steady and it was an easy, enjoyable read.

More Than A Kiss by Saxon Bennett and Layce Gardner


GENRE: Lesbian Romantic Comedy

This book had me laughing out loud. Not something I do alot and I think it scared my wife a bit. It had a unique cast of characters and was definately a lighter read. They are the lesbian Carl Hiassen. No one can be serious all the time( said with R.B.F. in place) The action kept coming and the twists were hilarious. I think this would make an awesome stage play, just sayin'.

The Misadventures of Two Reluctant Zombie Hunters(Vol.1) by Rhavensfyre


GENRE: Post Apocolyptic, Lesbian

This book was full of sarcasm and snark. Therefore I loved it. The main characters did not have a hero complex at all like most zombie type books. The Rules made me laugh. KL was my favorite because I just want to be like her. I am glad I got this recommendation or I may never have found this book and author. I will be reading more, including Vol. 2.

The Light (Zombie Ocean Book #9) by Michael John Grist


GENRE: Post Apocalyptic

Michael John Grist has taken me on a fatastic ride with the Ocean. I have been hooked since book 1 [The Last]. Amo, Lara, Anna, and the rest have become like old friends that I get to visit with once in awhile. From the first book I stated this was a different take on the whole zombie genre theme and it has continues to evolve and take me on twist and turns, ups and downs, right along with the characters. Grist really delves into what it means to be human and that the line between good and evil often is a blurry one. I am really hoping this is not the end.

The One Who Eats Monsters(Wind and Shadow, #1) by Casey Matthews


GENRE: YA, Lesbian, Paranormal, Some Romance

Paranormal is usually not my favorite. I do enjoy it but I must be in the mood for it. This book was so well written that I flew through it. The character of Ryn was very well developed. The theme seemed to be good versus evil with some nasty paranormal politics going on. I put this in the same category as American Gods but much less crass and gritty but in a good way.

Close Quarters (Jayce & Emma #4) by Barbara Winkes


GENRE: Lesbian Romance, Crime, Law Enforcement

Again this was short but action packed. Although I do think Emma may have the worst luck in the world. Her character gained more depth in this book and you got to see a slightly softer side of Jayce. Where is book #5?
