Today is the second time for #LoveOzYA’s, #LoveOzYABloggers meme. It’s a fortnightly feature that promotes Aussie YA, with a new theme every time. This week’s theme is Feels.
I am a very emotional person, there is no denying it. It doesn’t take much to make me cry, really nothing at all. But, here are some of those books that hit me all in the right places with feels. For good and sometimes for bad.
No Limits by Ellie Marney: Wow, I just finished this one a couple of days ago and holy did it tear me apart. It’s emotional as hell and because we already know one of the protagonist we just fall back in so easy. Nevertheless, you will be hit with all types of feels.
A companion novel to her ‘Every’ trilogy, No Limits follows Harris Derwent who isn’t exactly the good guy.
After his unsuccessful attempt to help Rachel Watts, Harris has landed himself in hospital and unemployed. He is still stuck in the country and at his father’s peril. He needs to make money fast and being a runner for a drug cartel is where Harris lands himself.
Amita Blunt is the police sergeant’s daughter. Getting involved in Harris’s case was never part of the plan. But working at the hospital, she’s invisible – which makes her the ideal contact for a boy feeding information back to the police…
Backed into a corner, with everything at stake, it’s time for Harris and Amie to find out if love really has no limits…
Queens of Geek by Jen Wilde: I connected with this book on so many levels and it was because of that it was so heartbreaking and uplifting and hit me with feels.
Queens of Geek follows three friends as they go to their very first convention SupaCon. Charlie likes to stand out. And SupaCon is her chance to show fans she’s over her public breakup with co-star, Reese Ryan.
While, Taylor likes to blend in. Her brain is wired differently, making her fear change. And then there is Jamie, and she knows their friendship will never change – even though she wants it to.
While Charlie dodges questions about her personal life, Taylor starts asking questions about her own.
Words in Deep Blue by Cath Crowley: It’s a poignant, beautiful story with fleshed out characters, gorgeous writing and a concept that is for every book lover. This book was full of feels.
Words in Deep Blue follows protagonist Rachel Sweetie as she returns home, is faced with her best friend, a secret crush and to a place where everything seemed to be better.
It’s about Henry, who doesn’t know what he wants, thinks that he loves his on and off girlfriend and wants things can go back to what they use to be.
It’s about Howling Books, where letters between lovers, friends and strangers are marked forever in the pages of the books that live on its shelves.
