Book review: Julie’s Butterfly by Greta Milán

Julie's ButterflyJulie’s Butterfly by Greta Milán

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When Julie and Bastian meet at a party, Julie can’t seem to figure Bastian out. He stands out — not because he’s rude towards her and hardly gives anyone the time of day, nor because he’s probably the most good-looking guy present – but because of one simple accessories. Bastian wears black, leather gloves and refuses to take them off or even so much as hint to why he’s wearing them in the first place. Talk about mysterious. Later, Julie finds out that Bastian suffers from a rare hereditary skin disease which makes him incredibly vulnerable. A bump against his arm causes his skin to be covered in blisters and wounds, and because of it, Bastian has become incredibly sheltered and mistrusting due to horrible and disgusted responses from people in the past. When him and Julie fall in love, Bastian is forced to face his inner demons and with it the terrible cruelty of the world.

A Gift of Ghosts (Tassamara #1)A Gift of Ghosts by Sarah Wynde

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I received a free copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Many thanks to the author Sarah Wynde and the publisher, Razor Productions.

Akira has been able to see, hear and otherwise communicate with ghosts around her. Though she usually ignores them, she is confronted with a teenage ghost named Dillon when she moves to Tassamara, who happens to be the nephew of Zane Latimer, the man who hired her. The town of Tassamara is filled with people who have their own share of ‘strange quirks’ and Zane hopes that perhaps Akira can help his relatives get in touch with their loved ones.
