Title: Bleeding Earth
Author: Kaitlin Ward
Release Date: February 9, 2016
Publisher: Adaptive Books

From Goodreads:

YA Highway blogger Kaitlin Ward's debut YA novel, Bleeding Earth.

Lea was in a cemetery when the earth started bleeding. Within twenty-four hours, the blood made international news. All over the world, blood appeared out of the ground, even through concrete, even in water. Then the earth started growing hair and bones.

Lea wants to ignore the blood. She wants to spend time with her new girlfriend, Aracely, in public, if only Aracely wasn't so afraid of her father. Lea wants to be a regular teen again, but the blood has made her a prisoner in her own home. Fear for her social life turns into fear for her sanity, and Lea must save herself and Aracely whatever way she can.

I've been waiting to read this for a while. Sometimes I wonder if I should've read the e-galley from Egmont before they went bankrupt, just to read the story, but I wanted to see if it would get picked up or self-published. I'm hoping it'll be good. It's not every day you come across an apocalyptic YA where the main character is a lesbian.


  1. IA, re an apocalyptic YA with a lesbian as a main character... not to mention with the earth starting to bleed --- how weird and strange and wonderful! Here's mine:

  2. I haven't heard of this one yet. It looks really really good!
