The Taste of Blue Light by Lydia Ruffles

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 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...

I was strapped on an emotional roller coaster that didn't stop till the words were nothing but a full stop, halting me. That is what the book was like. I feel so drained and not quite complete. I want to start this review by saying it was a long draining book and I feel like I was lost in the mot...

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...
