My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Nikki Godwin. What can I say about Nikki Godwin? Well, I tend to love anything she writes, and that includes her latest book, Breaking Saint Jude, a LGBT YA romance. Yes, two boys fall in love. In like? Anyways, it was simply perfect. I mean, an awkward, slightly dark, glass collecting gay teen (Jude) falls in love with the mysterious “I think I like you but I don’t even know you and your friends are kinda shady” hot guy (Max).
There were so many lines in this book that I loved, one being: “We’re all a bunch of walking tragedies.” Yes! We are. It was so simple yet so poetic. Then there was, “I nod and fight back the smile that wants to sneak across my face like a creeper outside a window.” Genius. Gotta love a book that’s unique, makes you laugh out loud, and allows you to connect with all the characters, not just the main character. Now let’s talk about some of these characters, shall we? Tucker the Trucker and Nightmare personified are a couple that definitely leaves an impression on you. And Max. Love Max. I become a bit of a fan girl when it comes to him.
As always, I am never disappointed with a Nikki Godwin book. Her words once again leave me in a state of euphoria because I just like her stories that much! So thanks, Nikki, for providing me a copy of BSJ and allowing me the opportunity to read and review another one of your amazing books. I’m glad I was able to take a peek into Jude’s life.
