Book Breakdown

This was a very short quick read, Amberly is such a sweet girl and I really enjoy her character. Though I want to smack her upside the head for being in love with Clarkson. He's even an asshat as a teenager! She's too good for him. But it's cute how loyal she is to him. Maybe a bit too far. The whole cutting her hair just because he mentioned it? Like really? He could tell her to jump and she would.

I hate when sweet girls get with jerks. It was so sad to hear from the Dr that she would probably never have kids (but we know she does). Clarkson was so mean though, saying the nanny could care for the baby so he wouldn't have to if they even had a kid. Like oh my God, I want to slap him over and over.

The writing as always is simple and easy to follow. Nothing special that stand out. I would get this novella if you love Amberly and want to see how Clarkson only gets worse as he gets older. I don't care that he had bad examples as a kid growing up. So many people children today and they turn out fine. He's just a waste of a human. 

On the other hand, I just love being in this world though, it's so fun and yet sad when the rebels attack. Honestly, this series isn't the best but I just love it anyway. It's just so entertaining.

(Pride) Book Review - Sagittarius Saves Libra

True love is on the horizon, Sagittarius. It’s a good time to step out of your routine and into the unknown. Jason Lyall wants someone to come home to, someone he can be his most ridiculous self with. Someone who loves him regardless. But no matter how hard he tries, he can never quite make that connection, and now his last girlfriend has moved on—she’s engaged. So when his identical twin begs him to swap lives for a few weeks, Jason can see the appeal. Suddenly he’s living another life in a tiny Australian town, contending with weird, wild, and wonderful things the likes of which he’s never encountered before. Like spiders. Like snakes. Like his new neighbour, Sergeant Owen Stirling, who is all kinds of . . . suspicious. Prepare to be caught in a merry mix-up, Libra. It’s a dance of side-stepping and seduction. Book Breakdown I did not know this was coming! When I woke up on June 1st and saw an email from Amazon saying the author dropped a new book in this series... I lost it! I hones

Music Monday - Recent Plays

This fun meme is hosted over at Always Me   I listened to a lot of music over this past week because I've been on fall break. It's been pretty good minus all the tornadoes and bad weather, but today the high was only around 70! That's amazing for this part of Oklahoma.  The music I've been vibing to is darker sounding songs since it's so close to Halloween! This year my partner and I are gonna crave pumpkins that always and then I'm gonna go with a friend on a train ride. She said she's done it before and it's fun. I'm hoping she'd right!  But for now, to the songs! Sooooooo what did you think? Let me know below and have a great week! Stay safe, wear a mask, and happy reading! 

Bisexual Erasure (Pride Month)

Happy Pride! Since today is bisexual day, I wanted to talk about something important to me. I hope you'll listen with open ears, mind, and heart. Thank you.  I’ve seen this happening for years now. People will say things like, “it’s a phase” or “pick a side.” I’ve even seen some say that bisexual people only like cisgender men and women and exclude all other genders. Which isn’t always the case. Sure, some bisexual people feel that way, which is why pansexual and other names came into play. But at its core, being bisexual just means that you’re attracted to more than just one gender.  I’ve never hidden on this blog the fact that I’m bisexual but I rarely talk about the struggles I feel because it just never felt right when you have gay people that have to hide their complete selves for fear of what the world could do to them.  Or trans people who spend every day trapped in the wrong body and can’t tell anyone to get the things they need to be their truth selves.  Put against issues
