Roxane Gay--An Untamed State

Roxane Gay: An Untamed State

Roxane Gay’s An Untamed State was surprising. I enjoyed the story and the writing. The brutality was endless, but written in a way that put just enough distance between the reader and the story, so that they could get through it without breaking. Or breaking completely. Miri and Michael came from different worlds, and I […]

G.L. Tomas--The Unforgettables

2016: In Reading

At the end of 2015, I lost eight years worth of BL manga files. It was like a freak accident. One minute they were there and the next, gone. I was able to re-download all of my Juné and Sublime titles and my eBookJapan titles weren’t affected, of course, but all of my indie comics and […]

2016: In Music and Video

Don’t mistake this for a “Best of.” This is pretty much the extent of my audio and video intake for the year. On the other hand, with the exception of one, they were all highlights of this year for me. So. “Hamilton.” Is Amazing. Even if it’s not “your thing”, you can’t deny its brilliance. And if […]

Jay Northcote: Like a Lover

This is the second book in Jay Northcote’s Housemates series, but the third one that I read. They stand alone well, so it was fine. This one is about Rupert and Josh who meet when they were both stood up. They chat a bit and get to flirting around Josh’s tattoos and Josh asks Rupert […]

Jay Northcote: Helping Hand

I think when I first came across Jay Northcote’s Housemates series, only the third book was available on Kindle Unlimited. I don’t think I was too inconvenienced, because, the first two didn’t grab me right then. They were made available on KU a few days ago, so I decided to give them a go. Fortunately, […]

Rhianne Aile & Madeleine Urban--Snowed In

Rhianne Aile & Madeleine Urban: Snowed In

Don’t know how I stumbled onto another three-way so quickly, but here I am. Also, this cover. Mitch (cover boy), Warren, and Kasey are best friends and they’re holed up in a cabin while on vacation. Kasey is tapping away on his laptop when Warren tells him that he needs to chill with the work […]

Garrett Leigh--More Than Life

Garrett Leigh: More than Life

More Than Life was a pretty short story about a Isa, a CIA operative who helps out a Kosovan resistance operative named Mikail. There’s something stirring between them from the first time they meet and over the course of time, as they trade information and such, they get to know each other and fall in love. Mikail […]

Nicola Haken--Counting Daisies

Nicola Haken: Counting Daisies

I don’t have much to say about this story. I was in the Kindle store via the app looking for another story by Garrett Leigh when Nicola Haken’s face popped up in one of the recommended lists. I love everything I’ve read by her, so I abandoned Garrett Leigh and jumped to see if there […]

Kat Decker--Off the Record - Story 2 - The Overachiever

Kay Decker: Off the Record

Off the Record is a collection of three short stories–“The Internship”, “The Overachiever”, and “After Hours”–featuring journalists and interns. After reading three of her novel-length stories, these didn’t do much for me. They weren’t bad, but I think she does better when her stories have room to breathe. Or perhaps I’m just greedy and only want […]
