End of the Year list – My 10 Greatest Discoveries

This year I’m doing a slightly different list than other years. :) Where I usually pick a random number of my favorite reads of the past year in a few categories, I now decided to make it a list of 10 m/m books of new to me authors, that pleasantly surprised me the most in 2012. These 10 ‘discoveries’ made me want to read all the other books by the same author as well (if there were any) and in most cases I actually did manage to read one or a few more, and all with the same, or sometimes even with more, pleasure than that first ‘discovery’ book.

To be clear: These are all books I’ve read in 2012 so they are not necessarily books that were published in 2012. Most are, but some are older.
So, here are my 10 discoveries of 2012, in random order:

With his best friend, Connor, in tow, Mac returns to California, a place he has mostly avoided after a bad breakup. Mac no longer does serious relationships, but maybe some time spent with Connor under the mistletoe will make this a more magical Christmas than either of them would have dreamed of.

Happy Gay Friday off sorts... An Update

It’s been a while since I last wrote a Happy Gay Friday post, so I thought maybe it's time for a little update...
I can honestly say that I feel much better than I did back then. I’m slowly starting to get my energy back and getting my head cleared of the chaos inside. But I’m not completely my old self yet. Far from, to be honest. However, the difference with a few weeks ago is that I now cautiously believe that I’m going to be alright again, eventually.

Although it often still seems as if - once more - all my energy suddenly went on a vacation, I at least have got my appetite for reading back again! It’s a rather versatile dish these days, but the main course is still romance (MM, but also a slash of Military MF & Romantic Suspense).
And I'm very happy it's the time of year for Christmas stories as well. I gobble these up like my favorite dessert.

As for the future of my Happy Gay Friday posts: I'm still not in the right mindset to decide wether I'm going to continue with them on a weekly basis or not. So for now I think it's best to go on as I did the past months and to postpone a decision for at least another 6-8 weeks. I also keep on writing reviews just when the mood strikes. So, it’s a continuation of the low key and irregular posting of the last couple of weeks. Meanwhile I’ll do my best to get better and all healthy again as soon as possible. :)

Happy Gay Friday!

For the last year, Jay Warren has struggled to find the nerve to tell his wife he’s gay. He’s ashamed of hiding it all this time and he doesn’t want to hurt her, so every time he gets the chance to tell her, he freezes up. The guilt has been almost unbearable, but when his wife dies suddenly, Jay’s conscience threatens to eat him alive.
Funeral director Scott Lawson deals with the bereaved every day of his life, and he’s also all too familiar with the inside of the closet. He offers Jay some much-needed compassion and understanding, and from that connection comes a friendship that quickly—perhaps too quickly—turns into something more.
But are grief, guilt, and loneliness the only things tying them together? Or will Scott get tired of being used as an emotional crutch before Jay realizes what he has?

Happy Gay Friday: An Abyss? Well...

This will be the last regular Happy Gay Friday post for a short period to follow. I’ve decided that it’s best for me when I free myself from ‘blogging with a schedule’ for a couple of weeks. At least for the next 4-8 weeks, maybe more, but I’ll keep you posted on that. This doesn’t mean there won’t be any HGF posts during those weeks, I might write one (or two) in the spur of the moment (but no promises). Nor does it mean there won’t be reviews or guest posts for the next couple of weeks, they probably just will be posted more at random. After this period of 4-8 weeks we hope to be back with our regular schedule of Monday, Wednesday and Friday posts.

However, Jeremy's ex isn't quite ready to let go, and a college student may be no competition for a high-powered attorney.

Happy Gay Friday: I'm Back

It feels like I've been away for a very long time, while in reality we were only 8 days in Egypt. This was one of the most intense vacations we ever had. 
Partly because of all the family dynamics that went on in a group of 10 people (and wow, do I have some selfish and/or obnoxious siblings) and partly because of the beautiful experience of diving and snorkeling between the exotic and colorful fish and coral reefs of the Red Sea. I definitely want to do that again soon. The quiet and beautiful world under water is truly mesmerizing! I couldn't get enough of it.

This is probably also the first vacation during which I didn't manage to read much books. There simply was no time and when I happened to have a small window of time for myself, I couldn't concentrate enough on the words in the book because of everything that was still whirling in my head. Things we did, things that were said, things that happened. So, no book talk this Friday... I have to find my reading groove again first and then hopefully next Friday's post will be more 'bookish'. :)

Happy Gay Friday!
