Review: Gunn’s Golden Rules: Life’s Little Lessons for Making It Work

Gunn's Golden Rules: Life's Little Lessons for Making It Work
Gunn’s Golden Rules: Life’s Little Lessons for Making It Work by Tim Gunn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I’m a fan of Project Runway and who doesn’t adore Tim Gunn? He’s the uptight yet charming and adorable mentor who has definite rules about what he likes and doesn’t like. However he delivers those criticisms with such an engaging manner that you can’t help but love him even as he so charmingly tells the designer it’s all crap. That kind of dichotomy is on full display in his Guide to Making it Work. Continue reading


Talker’s Redemption by Amy Lane

Talker's Redemption (Talker, #2)Talker’s Redemption by Amy Lane

Blurb:
Tate Walker’s past is too painful to just disappear, even if his dream boy, Brian Cooper, is there to hold his hand. Brian does his best, but Talker—always good at avoiding his own pain—is having a hard time facing the truth about what happened when he trusted the wrong man at the wrong time.

When that truth resurfaces and lands Brian in the hospital, Talker is forced to make a choice. He can either confront every demon in his fragile, bleeding heart, or he can let Brian take the heat for him, just like he has from the beginning. But even Talker knows you don’t leave your dream boy alone and undefended when he just saved your life, and he’ll have to find the strength to take care of Brian when Brian needs him the most.

Love Ahead: Expect DelaysLove Ahead: Expect Delays by Astrid Amara

Blurb:
Austin thinks driving a 1989 Geo Spectrum fourteen hundred miles in the middle of winter is a bad idea. But he would never forgive himself if the man he loved, Zach Roth, got himself killed in Idaho, so he agrees to go.

Besides, he has something to prove. He wants Zach to know that its more than just Zach’s deliciously wicked body he adores. And if it takes spending Hanukkah in Zach’s Grandma’s old hatchback to prove it, then so be it.

Ever the optimist, Zach believes everything will turn out for the best. But bad weather, robberies, blown gaskets, run-ins with the police and motel bedspreads of questionable cleanliness seem to conspire against them, and they may need eight days of miracles just to keep each other and their romance alive.

The Mariposa Club by Rigoberto Gonzalez

Title: The Mariposa Club
Author: Rigoberto Gonzalez
Publisher: Lethe Press
Length: Novel /250 pages
Buy the book: Paperback, Ebook
Rating: 3.5 stars

Review:
Mariposa Club is a decent coming of age story that has engaging characters and a youthful appeal. The situations and especially the cast are all exaggerations. They’re extreme depictions of tropes and themes surrounding gay teens. There is the flaming overweight queen, the fierce cross dresser, token white boy with a big dick, and the very sensitive, thoughtful Mexican narrator. None of the characters particularly grow or mature over the course of the story even though the plot is heavily character driven. Instead the story is more an anthem for young gay teens of any type, involving characters and situations that they can emphasize and sympathize with.
