Manga Monday - Stepping on Roses

Alright everyone, how are you all? I hope your lives are going well. I've been so busy I've no idea what to do with myself. Work has been hard, pulling more hours than I should... but anyway I finally got a manga read and I miss Manga Monday, I know they aren't popular but I don't do this for popularity, I do this because I love it. If I didn't love it, I'd have quit by now. So let's jump into the manga for this week!

 A rags-to-riches romance from the creator of Tail of the Moon ! Poor Sumi Kitamura… Her irresponsible older brother Eisuke keeps bringing home orphans for her to take care of even though they can barely afford their own basic needs! Just when Sumi's financial problems become dire, wealthy Soichiro Ashida enters her life with a bizarre proposition--he'll provide her with the money she so desperately needs if she agrees to marry him. But can Sumi pull off fooling high society into thinking she's a proper lady? Moreover, is it worth it to give everything up for this sham of a marriage?

Manga Breakdown 

Sumi's a poor girl trying to take care of lots of kids. None of which are hers. They are just homeless children her brother brings home in dreams of one day using them as workers for a business. Though her brother is useless, spending far too much time and all the money gambling. Which means, there is hardly any food and they are in extreme debt. 

They are about to be thrown out when Sumi decides she will sell herself for money. A handsome man takes her up on her offer and next thing she knows, she's being taken to a huge fancy Western style house.

Soichro says she can have all the money she wants but she has to be his wife and never ever fall in love with him. She once again agrees to for the good of the children. Besides, she has fallen for her savior's friend anyway. 

Then Sumi gets 'lady' lessons, where she is taught how to act as a proper lady in high class for Soichiro even though he can be a huge asshat. At least now she doesn't have to worry about the children getting food.

Nozomu (the guy Sumi really likes) has invited her and her husband over to his house for a high class party. Will she be loyal to Soichro? Will her secret be spilled? We have to read volume two to find out!

This manga us such a cute little romantic comedy. It makes me smile and laugh and even if I'm in a bad mood, I can pick this up and it still makes me happy. I think it's a nice blend of drama, romance, and comedy. Though it's looking like there maybe a love triangle... yeah. I know that bothers some of you guys but I actually like them... yes I'm the weird one out there. I'm okay with it. Who wants to be normal anyway? No fun.

So I fully recommend this series if you like cute little romantic dramas and anyone that wants a light read. Also the art is really stunning.

(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
