Thursday's Discussion (3)

This is going to be based on a book I read today, it got me thinking and since I still haven't read the fanfiction by Cassandra Clare yet I decided to go for this. In case you're wondering the book was called Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma

The Question for the Week 

What themes are you willing to read? What themes go too far? Like drugs, incest, suicide, rape, gay rights, racism and so forth.

I personally am willing to give just about anything a try. With a few major exceptions, I won't touch anything with racism because it bothers me so much. I hate that this is even a thing still! We are all people, we are the same. Period. Those narrow minded people who can't see that disgust me!

But I don't mind to read about drugs. I've read some Ellen Hopkins books and they are heavy on the drug use. As a person who had been touched by the drug culture (quite a few of my family members), I relate to these books, I see the users and their lives falling apart but then I know what it's also like for the family. It's not easy to watch someone you love slowly die or turn into someone else.

As for the other things I don't mind reading about them either though suicide makes me very sad to read about and I usually stay away from it. Rape makes me angry and want to beat up the rapist. Incest.... I was so torn between being grossed out and wanting them to be together so much. Yeah, weird feelings.

So that's it buttercups! Tell me below what themes and such you can read and the ones you just won't touch. I look forward to seeing your answers!

(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
