Review: Lost Tales From Foster High (Tales From Foster High #9.5) by John Goode
Lost Tales From Foster High - John Goode









** Place called home - 4.5 stars



I'm not sure if I remember Aaron that well. I would have to start Tales From Foster High Series all over again. Poor, poor me.... :D

Anyway it's about a boy who has done everything in his power to escape the town Foster. Has run away from his true feelings for being gay. He's joined the army now and won't be back. In his last week before his deployment he agrees with an old classmate Tommy to go out fishing. And they discover new things about each other...

fav. quotes

So many of us think that men aren't supposed to show emotion or to express joy but as I felt him press down onto me, I knew that the people who had perpetuated that myth were idiots. I didn'feel less of a guy being with him, if anything I felt more of one. ~

This wasn't about one of us being the man and the other the woman, this was about both of us being men and enjoying it for that reason.


..... I began to realize what I had been missing in my life and why I had been so miserable for most of it. It wasn't that I was blind. I had been wandering around in the dark for so long. It wasn't that Foster was a miserable place.

I was that I had never known what being truly happy had felt like. So I had never known how to really look for it.

- And here I go again with the quoting. #canthelpmyself

You will rise - anything but 5-Brad & Kyle stars



"You really don't think it's weird to watch this?"

"I think it's weird you wear tight pants and chase a ball around a field for hours at a time, this is the most normal thing I've seen you do."

Last Friday Night - anything but 5-Brad & Kyle stars

I don't care.. I'll read anything about Kyle & Brad. This was about the early days of them together with the add of an unexcisting character in the series; Taylor, Kelly's older brother. As Kyle mentioned to Brad. "He was you before you."

There was a part of me that just couldn't handle looking at him without melting a little. It felt like everything I thought made up the person I was tricked away, leaving nothing but unabashed love for my boy with the blue eyes.

** Unused Opening for 151 Days

John's different opening of 151 Days. History of the town Foster is great of course but Kyle & Brad's story is always better. always ♡♡♡



** Five Dates and a Hookup anything but 5-Brad & Kyle stars

*cringes.... Brad, what were you thinking!!!! pfffft
.. he doesn't want to be exclusive because he thinks it would deprive me of much needed life lessons.

"Please don't date people any more, please, Just be my guy and wait and I'll come back. I promise I will come back and I'll make it up to you and..."

"Brad?" He paused.
"I've always been your guy; I've just been waiting for you to see it."


** If Only in My Dreams anything but 5-Brad & Kyle stars

Lovely little X-mas story. Kyle's disappoinment that Brad wouldn't make it home on time for Christmas and the true meaning of Christmas.

** Regret - 4 Regret stars

Here we find out what happened to Jeremy after 151 Days and a sneak peek of Kyle & Brad's new story; Dreams of a Walking Man

I still wanna cry when reading about Kelly....

"We have to let him go Jeremy, we both have to let Kelly go."



** The Beginning is the End is the Beginninganything but 5-Brad & Kyle stars

Story about the very beginning of Brad and Kyle noticing each other. Brad thinking he didn't deserve to ever be happy and Kyle thinking he was broken.

Brad's thoughts;

I didn't get to like guys. I didn't get to be happy. Happy and me weren't friends and we never would be. I had a job to do, a mask to wear and damned if I let myself slip up now.


Loved this anthology!!! Very clever that last story!! It's where it begins and ends at the same time.
I'm so very excited to read about Kyle & Brad's future life. I can't wait.

2nd X-mas (2016) BR with Paul and Sonia

This didn't particularly work for me. I liked the idea. Books is always good and I always loved to go to the library. Just.Just Mr. Miggles didn't work for me. I just kept having this pic in my head.



So not sexy!! I just couldn't connect with Sean Miggles and Toby.
I'm sad. I wish I would've loved this more.

Review: What about Everything by John Goode
What about Everything - John Goode

BR with Paul and Sonia



First of all I just have to say I’m honored to have been mentioned as Tyler’s first girlfriend Elsbeth. The one who totally fucked up his idea of marriage. The one Tyler chose to blame……


“I swear, this is all Elsbeth Roo’s fault."

I had such a blast reading those parts, even recognized true parts. *glares at Paul*


But now the book of course;


The thing with John Goode’s books is they are real. You can relate to them. And reading about a gay couple struggling with defining their relationship is as real as it gets. We all, straight or not come to deal with the same issues.


When I finished, I was overwhelmed. I just couldn’t write down my thoughts right away so I guess now I’ve waited too long so I’ll have to read it all over again.



This book is about growing up, leaving our mistakes in the past and live our life to the fullest.




Tyler and Matt have been in a relationship for a few years and Tyler is quite content. Matt feels like this relationship isn’t going anywhere. Tyler is feeling the tension and is trying to resolve it on his own peculiar way.


“So let me guess. You tried bribing him, babying him, and offered him the full Tyler trying to cheer him up, but the one thing you haven’t done was ask him what’s wrong.”

And he messes up. Big time. Matt is embarrassed in front of his family and Tyler will have to do everything in his power to make it up to Matt.


Enter Robbie. Robbie was amazing in this book. I love his sassiness, his humor and his pursue to care about the people he loves. He won’t admit it but he IS very fond of Tyler. So Robbie has all these solutions for Tyler to make up with Matt.


And my gawd the situations had me laughing so bad…



I’m not going to say much about it just this:



Poor, poor Matt….


Tyler needs to stop with his apology gifts and with Robbie’s help seals the deal with a real
Gay Disney Cruise. “which meant a masquerade ball, dancing, actual alcohol drinks, and hot guys dressed up as Disney princes wandering around the ship”



Now, the cruise John described was so cool. I loved all the Disney themed rooms and gadgets…

the cabin walls were wall-sized monitors, and they displayed a pretty impressive view of a valley from a vantage point atop Pride Rock. As we walked in, the music swelled and the first notes of the Lion King theme began to play all around us.


Zazu was totally awesome!!


“Zazu?” I asked, moving my arms around Tyler’s shoulder.
“Get lost,” I said, kissing Tyler.



So at this point you’re thinking Disney-like, and they live happily ever after.





For me it was an emotionally rollercoaster. It was hilarious at times but most of all I was screaming at Tyler and Matt for the mess that it still was. You could see this train wreck coming.. Both of them afraid of losing each other.


“I love you, Tyler, I really do. But I don’t know how we can go on like this. Something has to change. We have to get past our fears or just forget it, because I can’t keep going on like this.”

I loved Sebastian’s friendship with Matt. Who am I kidding I loved all four of them. Robbie and Sebastian were determined to help their friends.


“I’m your best friend. I mean. I’m assuming here, but we talk, like, every day, and I’ve seen your boyfriend’s junk, so I thought that meant we’re best friends, but I don’t want to overstep my boundaries if you think I’m just a bro or a normal friend.”


Robbie’s song and revelation gave me goosebumps.


I began to cry in the darkness when I remembered that feeling and longed for it. The feeling that I was supposed to be with someone, the feeling I had hunted down in my head and tried to kill time and time again because that song wasn’t for me, wasn’t for my kind. And yet here it was again, asking me….
Must I always be alone?

(spoiler show)


Tyler will finally get it and accept the fact he’s made mistakes and that it’s okay to move forward.




I want to end with Robbie. Just because he’s awesome and I just wanted to post a pic how he would look like in his Elsa costume.




I could totally keep raving about this book and of course we’ll get Tyler and Matt’s well-deserved HEA but then I got to the epilogue which had me fangirling because of


Kyle and Brad. Gawd, do I miss these guys… 


(spoiler show)



This book is amazing so go read it!!
