Reality No-Show (ReMade 1.6) - ARC Serial Review (Diverse Reads)

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. "Reality No-Show" is the sixth episode.

Teddy, a teenage heart-throb and reality TV star, is used to being followed by cameras and waking up in strange beds with strange girls. But robot cameras with no operators, beds made of plastic, and girls that have no desire to be in bed with him? That he very unused to. Suddenly trapped in a weird alt-version of his own life – with a rare girl who wouldn’t even have wanted a part in his old one – the teen star seeks questions, and a way out.

This episode written by Kiersten White.

Serial Breakdown

Teddy Young is a young football reality show star. His whole life is fake... planned out for him. That doesn't really bother him though as he believes he's going to go crazy by 19. Just like his father and grandfather. He just hopes when he goes, he didn't hurt his mum like his father did. After something goes badly at party and he tumbles over a fence and dies. 

He wakes up on what looks like a set of his life. His school, house, the places he ate at, and even the train station where his 'girlfriend' broke up with him. He thinks he's finally gone crazy. Even thinks the creepy robot following him with red eyes is his mind's way of making the crazy seem normal.

Though when he wakes up next to a girl that changes. She is a Latina just like his ex 'girlfriend'. The robots want them to create all the scenes from his show and they didn't get his ex but a girl that could replace her. Inez, she is awesome! I think she might be one of my favorite characters yet. No, she is one of my favorite characters. 

They pretend to act out some scenes until they get out of there. Inez ends up blowing up the whole place. Which I loved! She is just too awesome. So they get on the train and get out of the creepy set, only to end up at the place where our other teenagers were running too. 

I can't wait to see what happens next, they are finally moving, finally doing something! I just hate that it took some character death for that to happen. Teddy and Inez are some of the best characters yet. This was also a funny episode.... which is sad very as nothing is funny about this series. Teddy is just a funny guy where he thought he was crazy, he took nothing seriously. It was nice to get some little lightheartedness in this dark serial. 

This ARC was given to me by NetGalley for an honest review.

(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
