Words We Don't Say by K.J. Reilly


GENRE: YA, Coming of Age

Have you ever thought of everything we don't say and how that effects us? This is what this book seems to address dealing with loss, anger, love, and self doubt. It has a unique voice in Joel and his use of unsent text messeges. The issues this book raises and the discussions that could/should be had are important. Perhaps one day we will all be able to speak even if the words are unpleasent but not hate filled, without trigger warnings.

So Lucky by Nicola Griffith


GENRE: Overcoming Obstacles, Self Discovery

M.S. is not often a topic in a book. Griffith made M.S. the antagonist is an artful way. She takes you on the ride with Maya of her ups and downs. The journey through the stages of grief was amazing and subtle. You felt what the character felt.

Gigolo Girls by Saxon Bennett and Layce Gardner


GENRE: Humor, Lesbian Romance

Yet another Bennett and Gardner book that had me laughing out loud! Where they come up with these characters and situations I would love to know. I compare them to Carl Hiassen. They are absolute comedic genius!

The End by M. Rose Flores


GENRE: Zombie Apocalypse

The End is a well paced zombie book. The main characters of Cate and Melody are fairly developed and fit well with the plot. I would like to find out what happens to the characters so I really would like to see a sequel.. I think the characters, especially Cate, can be developed more in future books.

Rescue Her Heart by K.C. Luck


GENRE: Lesbian Romance, Space

I really enjoyed this book. It is a slightly different twist on the police officer/military officer and civilian love story. The characters were well developed. There was pleanty to0 keep the plot flowing and it was very readable. Normally I shy away from anything space but this was very well done and not "out there". I am looking forward to reading more from Ms. Luck.

The Best Lines (Chicago #1) by Nicole Pyland


GENRE: Lesbian Romance

Another fantastic random find. The characters are well developed and the relationships are complex all around. The story flowed really well. I love how the relationship between the two main characters develops as a friendship first. I plan to read more by this author.

Healing Springs by Rhavensfyre


GENRE: Lesbian Romance

This was an amazing love story about growth and acceptence. It is not a smack you in the face with sex love story. It has an important messege of loving yourself and not missing what is in front of you.

The characters are amazing and fairly complex. The plot rolls at a good pace. Overall it leaves you with the warm fuzzies.
