Reviews: Do They Effect What Books You Read?

Reviews: How much do they effect what books you read? Is there any reviewers that you always agree with and read the books they like or don't read the books they don't like? Are you entitled to give your thoughts about a book you've not read?

I have some reviewers that I take their opinion into consideration when it comes to helping me find books. Or if I've not heard much about a book reviews really help when deciding if I want to try it or not. But I follow no reviewer blindly as I hope you don't either. 

Though I am one of those people that if I read a review for a book that I'm looking forward to and the reviewer dislikes it. That won't stop me from reading it as it still sounds like a good book to me. I prefer to make up my mind when it comes to if I will read a book or not. Reviews do help me but in the end it's honestly more about if I find it interesting or not. 

As for giving an opinion on a book you've never read. To me it's not cool. I hate saying things aren't valid but in this case it's true. Your opinion on a book you've never read can't be valid. I mean that's logical sense to me. 

You can say why you don't want to read this book because you've heard it's blah, blah, or blah. That's fine and dandy. But, you can't go off giving your thoughts about these things that's said to be in this book because you've not read it. 

So what are your thoughts on this? Please let me know below as I'd love to start a great discussion with you awesome readers.

(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
