About each book -
I'm A Gay Wizard - This book was fantastic! A story about Johnny who is gay and his best friend Alison who, is trans. They deal with a lot of school and really horrible bullies. One day Alison finds a spell book and they plan to use it but instead, it causes an earthquake and before they know it they are kidnapped. So much happens in this book and I just didn't want it to end. Has fantastic representation and written by an own voice author. This is a book for all ages and one I can't recommend enough. I really enjoyed the story, the characters and wizadry. It tackles a lot of topics and I think the author did a fantastic job.
Trapeze - I just adored this book. As soon as I read about it I knew I had to read it and I read it in a few hours but, I just didn't want it to end. In this book we follow Corey and she is a travelling trapeze artist. She loves what she does but one night tragedy strikes and the home she has known for years has turned to ash. Set in a small town, Corey is about to travel a different path than she wanted. To know her estranged mother and after meeting cute Luke, possibly finding love? This book was beautifully written and I really enjoyed following Corey's journey. This book does touch on abuse but, the author did a fantastic job with this subject. Another book that was tackling a lot of topics and a story about a girl who is now in a life she has no idea to deal with and how she comes to terms with what her life is now.
What Happened That Night - Mysteries are my favourite and wow is this one up there with my top 5. In this book we follow Clara and her sister Emily is on trail for the murder of a family friend, Griffin who, Clara has always been infatuated with. I love that this book went between the past and present. It really adds more mystery to the book, finding out more about these characters and what really happened that night. This book was really intriguing. I needed to know what happened, who was involved and just couldn't put it down. The author did a fantastic job with the mystery that surrounded this book and the intensity off it. Definitely a top read for this year!
