Into the Wild

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.

Wow. I am blown away by this read. It's rare that a contemporary YA book leaves me feeling so breathless. I absolutely did not see any of that coming. The Taste of Blue Light follows the story of young art student Lux and her attempt to discover what happened to her one fateful summer night. She...

(I received an advance copy of this book for free. Thanks to Hachette Children's Group and NetGalley.) This was a YA story about a girl who couldn’t remember one night of her life after ending up in hospital. Lux was an okay character, but I found it quite hard to connect with her. The storyline was...

I read this book as part of the Spookathon reading challenge, follow me on Twitter to see daily updates of the books I read! The local YA book group that I attend received the opportunity to read and review The Taste Of Blue Light for the publishers. I don't normally do this but because my review...

Thanks to NetGalley for providing me with an ARC of this captivating read. Initially, Lux was not a character to feel empathy with. Her unwillingness to engage with things and people made her hard to care about. The environment in which she cloisters herself is alien to many of us. Yet as the story...

I loved the 1st half of this book. It is set in the most extraordinary school – a pricey independent boarding school devoted to the arts, where Lux Langley, who will turn 18 on 23rd November, is suffering from amnesia as well as synaesthesia, which causes her to have headaches coloured red. That...

Thank you to Netgalley for providing me an advanced reader copy in exchange for my honest review. Everywhere around the world, all born under the same sky, alarms ring in hearts and people bleed. The Taste of Blue Light is a story about a girl called Lux who attends a boarding school for artists. S...

I loved this. It was beautiful and sad but uplifting and absolutely does not go down the route you expect it to go based on the blurb – which just made it all the better. Lux is recovering after a blackout and waking up in hospital with no memory of recent events. We join her around the time she r...

This novel started out incredibly strongly, both in the way it was written and in it's opening scene of the passion of young artists. Although the rest of the novel is written just as lyrically the story looses traction pretty quickly as plot is lost in decorative descriptions of feelings and thou...

Thank you to for providing me with a free copy in exchange for an honest review. In all honesty, I picked up this book because in the email I had received about this book, it appeared to be marketed at fans of Sylvia Plath's The Bell Jar which I had enjoyed. I was expecting to be...
