Wow! What an awesome debut. This book if full of things I love - ice cream, sweet yet delicious kisses, hot summer days, ice cream, the beach and did I mention ice cream!
Sixteenth Summer is a feel good read from start to finish. The kind of book you devour in a couple of hours and grin the whole way through. The writing is a style that makes for an effortless read. Dalton also had great eye for detail when it came to describing the beautiful beach side setting and obviously the delicious ice cream since I keep mentioning it. Seriously there is a lot of ice cream in this book! It also has great characterization. Anna is the type of character who reminds you how wonderful it was to be sixteen. And Will he is just gorgeous and so sweet.
The romance is how you imagine the perfect summer love. Seriously I don't think first love gets any sweeter than this book. It is the kind of love most girls dream of. It might be a little unrealistic but it didn't stop me from going awwwwww the whole way through.
Overall, Sixteenth Summer is the perfect summer read. So for those of you in the northern hemisphere this is a must have for your beach bag this summer. And for us over here in the southern hemisphere this is a must have to make you feel all warm and fuzzy this winter.
Thank you to S&S for providing me with a copy for review...more
Favourite Quote: Some ideas are not born of logic and good sense. They are made of clouds and cobwebs. They sprout from nowhere and feed on excitementFavourite Quote: Some ideas are not born of logic and good sense. They are made of clouds and cobwebs. They sprout from nowhere and feed on excitement, sprinkled with adventure juice and the sweet flavor of the forbidden. The psyche moves from the realms of the ordinary and takes a delicate step towards the unknown. We know we shouldn't and that is exactly why we do.
Guitar Rose Highway is a fun read. It is quirky, charming and vibrant story that captures the joy and angst of being a teen.
Lowry's writing has a very lyrical feel and also a little bit different. There is multiple points of views and no punctuation in parts, snapshots and poetry giving it a very unique format. It kind of feel likes a happy place between a verse and prose novel. Also this book is a little bit dated written in the late 90's and has a hippie-grunge kind of feel but I enjoyed it and the memories it brought back.
The story and the characters really capture how it feels to be a teen with such raw honesty. Focusing on how you feel your parents don't get you and the feeling of being restricted. It also has the parents' points of views in a couple of parts showing their feelings.
Rosie and Asher are amusing and heartwarming characters. They are the kind of characters that grow on you more and more as the story goes on and in the end you don't won't to say goodbye.
The is a touch of romance that is sweet, tender and a little bit awkward like first relationships are. It just brings a grin to your face.
"they do not kiss but they both want to instead their feet touch and so do their arms it is electric magic their tiny arm hairs tingling happily lying together the sun warming them watching sky through green-leafed gum branch close enough to hear each other breathe sweet togetherness this lazy lying down dance of love"
Overall, Guitar Rose Highway was an enjoyable and slightly off beat read. Can't wait to read more from Lowry....more

This book is a hidden gem. I hadn't heard anything really about Psych Major Syndrome until my friend and book guide Nomes read and wrote a rave review for it. I then couldn't get my hands on it fast enough and she was right this book is AMAZING! Psych Major Syndrome is funny, warm, irresistible read that is slightly quirky in a good way.
Thompson writing is clever, witty and charming. It just has a great flow that makes it so easy to get caught up in this story. It is the kind of writing that keeps you amused and causes a silly grin on your face. Please note that as a warning if you read this in a public place.
Leigh, is the girl you want to be bestfriends with. She is just a normal girl and is someone easy to relate too. I love that she drives an old beat up car, likes to read 'incredibly unrealistic and badly written romance novels' and tends to over analyze everything.
And then there is Nathan......awwww ~sighs dreamily~. He ticks all the boxes for me to make a great literary crush. Can play guitar, check. Has a crooked smile, check. And tends to walk around shirtless, check. He also is just a great guy, no bad boy attitude in sight. It will be impossible for anybody not to like him.
The romance in this book is delicious and sweet. The kind that you keeping going back and re-reading again and again and again.
Overall, Psych Major Syndrome is a book that makes you feel good. I say to all contemp and romance fans run out and get this book now!
