    One thought on “A Welded Wave”

    1. A lot of emotion here but not a lot of emotional maturity. Mark is a gay identified transguy. Enis is a longstanding gay friend. When Enis comes out of a long term relationship, it’s not long (literally only a few hours?) before Mark and Enis realize they’ve got the hots for each other.The author, Z.A. Tanis, tries to set up some interesting conflict in the book but none of it really amounts to much. As a reader, I didn’t get any satisfaction of seeing the characters grow or mature. Mark s [...]

    2. "fall into spring."This is a very interesting story that I really liked. I'd have rated it higher but I had issues with some reactions. Not a lot, I just couldn't comprehend acting that way.I admired Mark, an artist and trans man, and his friend Enis. They met and became platonic friends. Now that Enis has broken up with his boyfriend, he and Mark decide to put the physical in their friendship. THIS is where things get interesting as we read about Mark's headspace: what happens when the clothes [...]

    3. 5/10 Stars "This is a sweet, simple little get-together story between a gay guy and a trans guy. If friends to lovers is your thing, then you’ll like how that works." - Matt "This was THE ultimate case of “It’s not you, it’s me. [] I wanted to like it a lot. But honestly couldn’t because the writing just didn’t work for me.”- Maria Find our full reviews on our blog here.t

    4. *2.5 stars, rounded upDisclaimer: I received an e-copy of this book on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.Mark is a really great character and I liked reading about his sculpturing and how much he loved his art. I've never read about a character that makes sculptures before and I found it really interesting. Sadly we barely get to know anything about Enis outside of their relationship, which is weird since they are supposed to be best friends too? I just didn't really feel it. There was [...]

    5. Book – A Welded WaveAuthor – Z.A. TanisStar rating - ★★★★☆No. of Pages – 108Cover – NicePOV – 3rd person, one characterWould I read it again – MaybeGenre – LGBT, Contemporary, Trans** COPY RECEIVED THROUGH NETGALLEY **Before we get started, I do feel a need to warn that this book has detailed scenes about the MC's apartment having a fire. I'm adding this, because at the time of writing, 24/6/17, this is a huge issue in UK news and it might be upsetting for anyone who had [...]

    6. I really enjoyed this debut story from Z.A. Tanis. It was short, being a novella, but sweet. I especially liked the realistic dialogue - it reminded me of my own relationships. I don't share exactly the same neuroses as the characters here (I think one might be on the autism spectrum - at least, I interpreted it that way), but I think everyone has them to some degree. I also appreciated how nerdy the leads were. Yes, that's right, nerds can fall in love, too! It's a very slice-of-life style that [...]

    7. i nearly gave this an extra half star for the good trans representation but i just can't do it lmao forgive me i'm afraid this novella didn't really do it for me. i thought the characters were very flat, and the conflict in the story was very, very odd - i felt like the author thought there needed to be some conflict in it (which is true) but then had no idea what to make mark and enis argue over, so they ended up arguing about salt, amongst other things. (view spoiler)[i mean come on, enis got [...]
