Manga Monday - Hot Gimmick Volume 1

Manga Monday! It's been a while since I've done one of these. I have been reading more manga again and I felt the need to bring it back, maybe I should really start doing it weekly and make it a true meme. What do you guys think? 

When high school girl Hatsumi has to go buy a pregnancy test because her popular sister Akane is "late," who does she run into but her creepy bully neighbor Ryoki! And now he's blackmailing her to become his slave! How will mild-mannered Hatsumi get out of this mess? Will Hatsumi's childhood crush (and male model) Azusa be able to save her from Riyoki's clutches?

Manga Breakdown 

This series is going to be very strange and the main character makes me want to pull my hair out. She's so stupid. I hate to say it that way but she truly is stupid. She's also very sweet and cares so much about her family. 

In fact everything starts when she is told by her little, slutty and sometimes bratty little sister, to go and get her a pregnancy test. The kid is fourteen and needs a damn pregnancy text. I hope my daughter grows up to be nothing like her. 

She gets caught buying the test by the son of the "Queen" of the corporate housing. This is not a lady you want to cross. Think of her as the most popular girl in school, everyone does whatever she says. So when Ryoki finds out, she begs him not to tell his mother. He agrees but she has to become his slave. Well, his sex slave. 

He tries to touch her and she flips, even after she agreed. It's all okay though as her childhood friend: Azusa, shows up to save the day. 

Things go from bad to worse though when Ryoki does get Hatsumi alone in his penthouse. He tries to get her into his bed but his tutor comes in. The tutor happens to want Ryoki and the next day gets all pissed at Hatsumi for getting him. Hatsumi tells the dumb tutor off and Ryoki sees, he is gentle to her, giving her his handkerchief to dry off with.

Meanwhile, all she wants his her long time crush Azusa to like her. She finally is made to kiss Ryoki and she doesn't like it. Her first kiss to a guy who made her. Though he may have feelings for her and just not know how to tell her. 

While this manga is far from perfect, in fact it's pretty stupid. I can't help but want to read more. I don't know why.

(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
