Mein Leben in Zahlen oder wie Sam die Liebe erkannte :)
Experimentier Mit Mir: Taboo For You - Wolfgang Eulenberg,Anyta Sunday

Inhalt:
Sam ist total am Durchdrehen.
In drei Wochen wird er 30. Und was hat er mit seinen Zwanzigern angestellt? Ist ’ne ganz einfache Rechnung: nichts Aufregendes – abgesehen vielleicht davon, dass er seinen Sohn Jeremy großgezogen hat. Aber was soll’s, Sam hat noch drei Wochen. Vielleicht reicht die Zeit ja, seine 20er-Wunsch-Liste abzuarbeiten…

Luke ist total am Arsch.
Er hat sich vor seiner Familie geoutet und vor seinen Freunden. Da ist nur eine bestimmte Person, die noch nichts davon weiß: sein Nachbar Sam, der seit 7 Jahren neben ihm wohnt und der ganz nebenbei auch noch sein bester Freund ist. Ihm muss Luke endlich die Wahrheit sagen, aber er kann es… einfach… nicht…

Jeremy ist total am Ausflippen.
Er zählt die Tage bis zu seinem 15. Geburtstag, und er will eigentlich nur eins: soviel Zeit wie möglich mit der süßen Suzy verbringen. Aber dazu müssten ihn seine Eltern erstmal in Ruhe lassen – mit ihrer ständigen Panik vor ungewollten Schwangerschaften. Also warum nicht einfach so tun, als ob man schwul wäre?

Zwei Nachbarn. Ein Sohn. Und eine strahlende Zukunft vor ihnen… Naja, solange sie ein paar Dinge geregelt kriegen…(Quelle: amazon.de)

Meine Meinung:
Anyta Sunday erzählt die Geschichte von Lake, Sam und Jeremy mit viel Herz und Gefühl. 3 Männer/ Jungs, die ihren Weg suchen - jeder für sich und doch gemeinsam. 

Eine Geschichte über Zahlen: Noch 3 Wochen bis zum 30. Geburtstag von Sam, zum 15. Geburtstag von Jeremy, 7 Jahre mit Luke und die 20er Liste. Doch es sind nur Zahlen. Doch bis Sam dies begreift, hat Jeremy in seiner jugendlichen Weisheit, sein Leben auf den Kopf gestellt und Sam zum Nachdenken gebracht. Über sein Leben, über seinen Nachbarn und was die Zukunft bereit hält.

Taboo for you ist eine wunderschöne Liebesgeschichte. Die mit viel Liebe zu Detail, den richtigen Händchen für ihre Protagonisten und einem feinen Humor, die Geschichte der 3 Jungs zum Leben erweckt. Die einem als Leser an der Geschichte der Drei teilhaben lässt und die einem nach dem Happy End lechzen lässt. Ich habe bereits "Fels" geliebt, doch mit dieser Geschichte hat sich endgültig einen Platz in meinem büchersüchtigen Herzen gesichert.

Fazit: Eine Geschichte zum Verlieben, voller Gefühl und Liebe. Wer sich nicht in Sam und Luke verliebt, der sollte das Genre wechseln.

HOW MY DRUM MAJOR TURNED ME GAY by Julie Zen
How My Drum Major Turned Me Gay - Julie ... How My Drum Major Turned Me Gay - Julie Zen

First time experience between the drum major and the sousaphone player in a practice room. It is down and dirty but I miss the build-up and anticipation of the sex. It was a wham, bam, thank you, ma'am.

How To Survive a Summer/Nick White
How to Survive a Summer: A Novel - Nick White

A searing debut novel centering around a gay conversion camp in Mississippi, and a man's reckoning with the trauma he faced there as a teen.
Camp Levi—nestled in the Mississippi countryside—is designed to "cure" young teenage boys of their budding homosexuality. Will Dillard, a Midwestern graduate student, spent a summer at the camp as a teenager, and has since tried to erase that experience from his mind. But when a fellow student alerts him that a slasher movie based on the camp is being released, he is forced to confront his troubled history and possible culpability in the death of a fellow camper.
As past and present are woven together, Will recounts his "rehabilitation," eventually returning to the abandoned campgrounds to solve the mysteries of that pivotal summer, and to reclaim his story from those who have stolen it. With a masterful confluence of sensibility and place, How to Survive a Summer introduces an exciting new literary voice.

 

I wanted to love this book so much more than I did, but it was unfortunately juvenilely written and hard to slough through.

 

One character aptly assumes at one point that our narrator doesn't want to talk about his story because he may feel it's just another example of a gay boy growing up and getting out of a small town, moving from a rural area to a metropolitan area and not terribly worthy of sharing. This was the most poignant moment of the novel, because I think a lot of people do feel this way when they should know that their perspective is also important.

 

I don't know. I was so psyched for this book but it didn't captivate me or compel me. It wasn't as gruesome as promised, not that I wanted to see gruesome specifically, but I expected there to be more shock factor for how the book was sold. There was one character who was very fucked up and I think that this was much more the problem in the story than the idea of "stomping out the gay."

 

I feel like there could have been more. Will's current life is very strange and aimless and could have better been written into its own story. His relationships with a guy he's interested in and a friend who's more a mentor were both very strange and were described as more intimate than they really are.

 

I kept getting bored and wanting to give up. Ultimately, the ending was super unsatisfying also, and I was left in limbo wondering what I had just read. While I think this topic matter is important, I would have liked to see this story differently done in a manner that would be much more captivating. I felt like the title was false advertisement, honestly.

 

This was disappointing. If you're interested in the topic manner it might be worth your time, but it was far from the slamdunk I was hoping this would pull on my emotions.

 

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

The Last Light of Day: A Gay Gothic Romance
The Last Light of Day: A Gay Gothic Romance - Rachel Kane

This is a 'new to me' author. It appears they have released 10 books since Dec 2016 which always makes me wonder if it is another writing collective. Anyway, regardless I'm here to review this book not the entire back catalogue. 

 

The cover of this book is deceiving, I thought this was an historical. Then when I first started reading I did wonder if maybe it was a paranormal and Cornell had actually gone back in time. What it is really is a contemporary about a family stuck in the past and clinging to its former glory by its finger tips. For some its about the money, for others it about the prestige and legacy. For our MC, Hayes, it's about protecting the land.

 

As the subtitle (which is a self-publishing marketing technique that I hate btw) tells us, this is styled on gothic novels of old and brings it up to date. The tone of it is moody, atmospheric, and creepy.

 

I liked that we got most of the story (in 1st person) from Cornell's pov, the outsider pulled by circumstances into the strange atmosphere of the house. However every so often we get a 1st person pov from Hayes, the broody son and heir of the house. These chapters are important in our sympathy for Hayes' situation, without them some readers may find Hayes a difficult character to like. 

 

There is a degree of suspension of disbelief required, the whole family seems stuck in another century with no internet/mobile phones etc.

 

I really enjoyed this book. It was fascinating watching the family reach breaking point as Hayes 30th birthday approached and terms of a will needed fulfilling. And honestly those chapters in Hayes pov quite often broke my heart, this man trapped in his upbringing, and tied up in his desire to protect his property, and fighting his true desires.

really great box set!
Sexy to Go Gay Romance - Jodi Payne,Leigh Ellwood,Eva LeFoy,Shiloh Saddler,Sam Thorne,Asta Idonea,Dale Cameron Lowry,Avery Duran,A.E. Wasp
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. I love, I mean, absolutely ADORE this box sets! You come across authors that you never heard of, read about people you need more of, and wile away the best part of a Saturday morning in pure bliss. 9 shorts, and I read 8 here, since I had previously read one, just last week. We have a little for everyone. Some paranormal, some Gods, some contemporary. Some sexier than others, some almost clean. Each of these authors are new to me, bar Lowry, whose box set I read last week. I can't say there is a single stand out, not for me. They are all really good, very well written with no spelling or editing errors I spotted. Each author now has a further book of theirs on my wish list. Since I can't point out ONE, 4 solid stars (certainly worth the £1.96/$2.54 Amazon have it at! May 8th, 2017) **same worded review will appear elsewhere**
