1) A book that I wasn't able to put down even when things become too absurd to be believable, but maybe it was what held my attention till the end. I liked a lot the story, it was a mix of mystery, a bit of gory details and a lot of absurds decisions/actions that astonishing enough works well together even when logically it shouldn’t. It was for sure a different and original read that put a smile on my face when I reach the last page. Good, surprising and different from everything I have ever read!

2) This book is quite a ride, beginning as a typical lesbian YA (nerd girl in love with gorgeous cheerleader) that morphs into a paranormal fast moving romp. The author's use of teen pop culture references in dialogue was comprehensive and quite amazing in its range. The dialogue was funny and fast paced, but believable. The book is a bit over-written in places and might have benefitted from 20% shorter in length (it was almost as if the author couldn't let herself stop writing about these characters and the editor didn't intervene), but the characters and story are so compelling that the reader is willing to go along for the ride. Strong first effort from this author.

2. The Strange Case of the Big Sur Benefactor by Jess Faraday - Gender: Lesbian - Genre: Historical
3. Shaken to the Core by Jae - Gender: Lesbian - Genre: Historical Romance
