My Friday read is Bloodgifted the debut novel from Tima Maria Lacoba look out for my review here next week. Here’s what its about:

 Descended from a cursed Roman soldier, primary school teacher, Laura Dantonville carries a rare genetic mutation that makes her a coveted prize to the secret community of vampires who reside in beautiful harbour city of Sydney. Her unique blood not only enables them to daywalk, but is also the key to ending a centuries-old curse. As such she becomes the epicentre of a power struggle between two rival vampire factions who want to claim her.
The oldest and most powerful of these is led by Alec Munro, whose position as leader, or Princeps, gives him sole claim to Laura.
Has she any other choice but to accept her destiny?

Friday Read – Boss Girl – Nic Tatano – Harper Impulse

Boss Girl by Nic Tatano is my Friday Read. I loved Wing Girl which I reviewed last year and have high hopes for this one 🙂 Here’s what its about:

Sydney Hack is the single, thirty something VP of news for a failing network… and she also has a taste for younger men.

She soon realizes a whole lot of over-thirty female viewers do as well, so she sets out to give these women what they want; a chiseled, trophy buck in his twenties sitting on the anchor desk next to a woman…




With nothing to lose she does the unthinkable; along with three female managers who happen to be her best friends she brings out the casting couch and turns it into a sleeper sofa. Doesn’t matter that the men have no television experience. As long as they look good. And there’s a hint of romance in every newscast.

Ratings skyrocket as a result, but Sydney and her female cohorts discover something else along the way…

True love is not always age appropriate.

Look out for my review
