Book Breakdown 

I want to start of by saying I usually hate slow books. I don't mind if they start slow to world build or to get to know the characters but if a book stays slow, I get bored. That is not the case with this series!

These are the only slow books I've ever enjoyed. They are magical and beautiful. The characters are so real, they are the true stars of this series. They are so real, they each have flaws and areas where they shine like the sun. Just like every one of us. I could not love these characters more.

This one is mainly about Ronan who can pull items from his dreams. It also deals with Adam coming to terms with the changes inside himself from The Raven Boys. There is a lot more of The Raven Boys themselves in this book than Blue. Her role is smaller in this one but she is still there so don't worry. The plot keeps moving so slowly towards the finish line.

Blue and Adam 'break up' in this one and she has a moment with Gansey. I use the quotations because I don't think Blue and Adam were every really dating. They never seemed like it at all. Ronan is hinted at being gay in this one. It is weird that I'd love to see him and Adam together? I think that they would be a wonderful couple.

My biggest problem with this book is the drugs. Maybe dream drugs? I don't like drugs in my books. As someone who grew up in a drug culture, I can't approve of it and I'm glad Ronan got away from it. I was so proud of him for doing that.

The Gray man is freaking awesome! I love the plot twist with him. I actually did not see this twist coming and I love when this happens, it's nice to be entertained and not surprised by a great book. Overall, another great book in this series. I'm loving it so much so far!

(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
