ReMade Season 1 Episode 1 (Shadows & Dreams) - Review

You live. You love. You die. Now RUN. ReMade.

Every minute, 108 people die.
On October 14th, 2016, from 9:31-9:32 p.m. EDT, 23 of those deaths will be teenagers.
Now they are humanity’s last hope for survival.

Awakened in a post-apocalyptic world and hunted by mechanical horrors, these teens search for answers amidst the ruins of civilization. Fate, love, and loyalty face off in this adrenaline -pumping YA adventure.

ReMade will unfold across 15 episodes. "Shadows and Dreams" is the first episode.

Holden Black never imagined his crush knew his name, much less that he’d suddenly be driving her to a party. But life can change in a second, especially when you’re 16. A look. A flash of headlights. A scream. What do you do when the unexpected jumps straight to the unbelievable, the dream becomes a nightmare, and waking changes everything except your heart’s desire?

This episode written by Matthew Cody.

Episode Breakdown

This is my first time ever reading a serial and I was really intrigued, I had to try this. The plot also sounded like it was really up my ally and so I read it. It's weird having to wait a week to jump into the book again, but it's actually a bad weird. It's really just like a TV show, which is pretty cool.

So this episode follows Holden. The nerdy, cute, shy guy who just wants to get the popular girl. Even going so far as to join a play just to be near her. After the play, Holden finds her stuck in her car. It won't start. He offers to give her a ride to the after party, even though he was not planning to go at all. On the way to the after party, they end up in a head on collision. They don't make it through.

Holden wakes up to mechanical type things poking him with needles but he goes back to sleep when a women injects him with something else. Next time he wakes up, he finds he's in a place he's never been. He fears the worst. After getting out and going through some weird stuff, he finds the girl. Things get more crazy from there. The woman who put him to sleep tell him he's in space and has to take an elevator to get down to Earth. 

They see a mechanical spider rip a young boy into pieces. This is not the life they had before and it's clear to them now. He gets no answers at all except that the woman helping them is somehow not human.

What is going on? How can they fix it? Can it even be fixed? 

This is actually pretty cool, it's weird how it just cuts off so quickly and how I got no answers as to what is going on at all. I feel so lost and I hope to get more answers in the future episodes. The writing is easy to follow and pretty standard. It's just so different to treat a book like a TV show. I like it. It's something new.

(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.

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
