Two Scorching Hot Reads to Rock Your World!

Number #1:
By C.J. Skuse

Rating: 3.9 

"I only got to see three songs, Mac..."

"That does not entitle you to take home the lead singer, Jody."
"I know."

"Most people settle for a T-shirt or a poster. Not Jody. Jody wants actual band members."

This book was a fruit salad - yummy, easy to digest though, at times, slightly jumbled. 

Jody's tale of her obsession with teen rock sensation Jackson, and her not-so-kidnapping-starnapping, is an easy story to like. With a loveable cast of characters from Mac, her best friend with a slight fashion obsession, to Mac's little sister Cree, with her love of snails. 

Spending time with Jackson turns out to be as much fun as babysitting a turtle on crack, and Jody has to face up to reality and the fact that sometimes our idols are far from perfect. 

Will the crazy ride end in tears or laughter - and can Jody kick her addiction to Jackson once and for all?

Number #2:
Scorch (Croak #2)
By Gina Damico

Rating: 5+

“Yeah, well, love doesn't always beat out the fear."

"Sometimes it does," he replied with a smile, pecking her on the nose.

"Christ, Driggs. You're turning into a Lifetime movie."
"Your defense mechanisms are captivating, as always.”

Holy reaper scythes covered in BBQ sauce - Gina Damico has done it again!

With her signature sarcasm, wit and artistic flair, Damico brings readers yet another wonderful literary masterpiece. Living up to the magic of Croak, Scorch is a wild ride of Reaper drama, kickassery and well-executed humour.

You have to love the Reapers. You just do!

Especially Lex and her Damning abilities which are all like:

And I have to give a special mention to the best relationship ever...Lex and Driggs! 

Seriously, every single time I spotted the word 'Driggs' on a page I was like:

Sad...but true.

My favourite quotes from Scorch:

What colour was her scythe?"
"Sadly, I wasn't able to take the time to appreciate its subtle hues as it tore through my skin. 

Hang on," Driggs said as Lex pulled out Bone's note. "She might be right."
Lex gave him a look. "You don't have to sound so shocked about it."
"But it happens so rarely. Like an eclipse. 

Fine!" he relented, giving her a dirty look. "But only if you stay in front."
She rolled her eyes. "My, what chivalry."
"To hell with chivalry. Your idea, you die first.
