Read The Taste of Blue Light Online Free - An incandescent, soul-searching story about a broken young woman's search for a truth buried so deep it threatens to consume her, body and mind.
'Since I blacked out, the slightest thing seems to aggravate my brain and fill it with fire'
These are the things Lux knows:
She is an Artist.
She is lucky.
She is broken.
These are the things she doesn't know:
What happened over the summer.
Why she ended up in hospital.
Why her memories are etched in red.
'The nightmares tend to linger long after your screams have woken you up ...'
Desperate to uncover the truth, Lux's time is running out. If she cannot piece together the events of the summer and regain control of her fractured mind, she will be taken away from everything and everyone she holds dear.
If her dreams don't swallow her first.

It's rare that a contemporary YA book leaves me feeling so breathless. I absolutely did not see any of that coming.

Thank you to the publishers for providing an ARC of this book through NetGalley.
I don’t even have the words to describe this book. It started off promising; Lux, the main character, suffers from amnesia after a traumatic event.
Lux is probably the hardest character to connect with. She treats her...

Beautiful is a strange word for this book, but that is what I will call it. It's rare that I see mental health written so well & messily, but when I do it means so much to me. So much care & consideration has been flooded into the words of this book & the story they tell is an importa...

The Taste of Blue Light by Lydia Ruffles completely bowled me over. There were times when I really struggled with it, times when I wanted to give up, but I am so glad I stuck with it, because it's incredible!
Lux is unravelling. Over the Summer, she went t...
