First Blogiversary!

This time last year I posted my very first review. It was of White Hot Kiss and it sucked. I look back at it now and cringe. It's freaking terrible! You are welcome to go read it but don't say I didn't warn you!

But I actually wanted to take this time and talk about what got me into blogging and I'm sure it's a story most people share with me. But it seems fitting to share it in depth here and now. 
I had just finished White Hot Kiss, which I read in one sitting that day after picking it up from my local Wal-Mart. It was my first taste of Jennifer L Armentrout and I was hooked! 

So I did what anyone would do, I headed to Goodreads to see if she had any other books. She did! So I requested them all from the library. I decided to start with Obsidian because unlike most people, I love the original covers. It was like I had found the Holy Grail and learned for the first time about book blogging. 

 I know, I'm completely late to the game but I just never knew about it. I sent so many years reading alone with no one to fangirl with. It got worse when we had to move away from my family as I didn't even have my little sister to talk to about the books I'd read. 

So I looked into this book blogging thing and found a free website: Blogger. I decided to create an account and give it a try. The rest is history! 

It's been an amazing first year and I want to thank each and everyone of you for coming along with me. I know I don't get to visit and comment on each of yours blogs because my all my computer problems and I don't get to blog everyday like I would like... but you guys just keep coming back and commenting and I love each and every comment I get. That make my day. 

So thank you to all. All the friends I've made, all the wonderful blogs I get to read and most importantly, to all those I've gotten to fangirl with. You guys are seriously the best ever! I love you all! Here's to another magical year. 

Also as a special treat,  I'm going to be doing a giveaway at the end of the month! Be on the lookout for that! The prize(s) will be fantastic!

(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
