Challenge criteria: A book with an unreliable narrator or ambiguous ending
‘I would like to make things beautiful, but a tawdry and repulsive kind of beauty. A braver sort than people have from birth. Sexy zombies on a bicep. That sort of thing.’
This post comes as part of my role as a #BroodingYAHero Street Team member, the #BroodyBFFs.
While I’m a big fan of standalones, one thing I don’t always like is that you’re often left wanting a lot more than the story has given you. When you’ve travelled so far already with these characters, it can be annoying to leave them at what’s essentially a cliff hanger.
There are some books I’m ok with leaving as they are, but with others, I definitely need some answers.
WARNING: spoilers ahead.
Challenge criteria: A book in a genre you usually avoid.
Three little girls set off to school one sunny May morning.
Within an hour, one of them is dead.
This book did not fit any of my challenge criteria.

A summer she’ll never forget…
When Olivia Montague’s grandmother passes away, she decides it’s finally time to make some changes in her own life. So she breaks up with her ‘going nowhere’ boyfriend and embarks on a journey to her Nonna’s home in Tuscany.
Last year, June 15th was a pretty dark day as we said goodbye to the true pet of the family – my cat Lucky. Six months later, her mother Alfie followed.
Coincidentally, Tag Thursday falls on the date one year on. I found the Things Cats Do tag on Kate’s blog, and it seems like the perfect fit for this month.
So, June’s Tag Thursday is tinged with a little bit of sadness. This tag is dedicated to my three little best friends, two of whom I’ve said goodbye to in the last year, and a one year memorial to my little pal.
