The best moments in reading are when you come across something – a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things – which you had thought special and particular to you. Now here it is, set down by someone else, a person you have never met, someone even who is long dead. And it is as if a hand has come out and taken yours.

The History Boys: The Film
The History Boys: The Film - Alan Bennett,Nicholas Hytner Quite nostalgic about the movie.

This screenplay is similar to [b:Dead Poets Society|67238|Dead Poets Society |N.H. Kleinbaum|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1359814692s/67238.jpg|1207563], only more sexualized: sexual molestation and homosexuality. In spite of them, it is a fun book, a slice of life about 8 students (The History Boys), and their Professors. All characters are colorful and likeable (yes, even the professor who likes to grope his students -made me wonder why the students allow it? Did they care so much for the professor it was kind of OK with them?-). I don't know if it is because of the movie, but it was a script easy to read, and when I got to the end, I got sad with the epilogue.

There are two versions of this book. This one includes an introduction by Nicholas Hytner (the director of the movie), Alan Benett's film diary, and lots of photographs, which helped me to remind me who was who.

The Bastard (Baddest Boys in History) - Inez Kelley

OMG! Loved this story...

This is the first book I've read by Ms. Kelley and I must say, it was beyond anything I expected. This one is a very unique take in this genre. It's intense, beautiful, lyrical, hilarious, loving, heartbreaking and sensual. The history lesson you get here and the way things are woven, how information is given, is not only clear in its reveal, but it's given in a way where you don't have information overload or become bored. Especially since this is a book that's world building. Nothing dragged. Every aspect was interesting/intriguing.

Vike & Lacy I loved their dynamic. Hot, heartwarming, heartbreaking & intense. *blushes*


I fell in love with every character in this book. (I'm really crushin on Myth, BIG TIME. I WANT his book like NOW!)

I gasped out loud with scenes concerning the villains. I KNEW this was going to be a great read for me when only 3% in the novel, my heart was completely shattered. I couldn't nor did I want to look away after that... The only thing I regret is starting this series before all or at least 3 or 4 books were already out. (Shellie, this is your fault, woman!) LOL

I can't wait to dive into the next one. Fall is just too far away *pouts*

This one ends on an HEA. But it's a series with an ongoing plot.
I strongly suggest you start with book 1, if you are reading this review after the other books have been released. It sets up the story and all the characters. The world building etc..

I would HIGHLY recommend this read.

When Posner reaches out to grasp Hector's hand... That's everything.
