Top Ten Tuesday - Reeling Me In

This meme is hosted over at The Broke and the Bookish

These are ten things that will make me instantly want to buy a book. These aren't in any order really as any of these will make me want to read a book. 

10) Vampires
I know, I know. This probably has a lot of you rolling your eyes and thinking the vampire thing is so over. It will never be over for me. I LOVE vampires. It's still my dream to be one... don't know how that will work because they aren't real but hey, I'm holding on for hope!

9) Sarah J Mass
If she writes it, I'm buying it. No ifs and/or buts. I will buy it and there is a 98% chance that I will love it. 

8) Asia
I love Asia! Japan, Korea, Singapore, China... any books set in Asia will pull me in. I love anything I can get my hands on from these wonderful places. 

7) Gothic/Dark Book Cover
Yep. I love dark and gothic book covers. I have stopped dead in a book store once just because out of the corner of my eyes I saw this book with a girl in a long black dress. It was dark and gothic and I bought it. 

6) Controversial Books
Yes, I'm that person. If someone says something about a book and then people are trying to censor it. I will go out and read that book. It only pulls me in more. I guess it's my inner rebel. I've also always been a free thinker and won't let anyone sway my idea and opinions.  I don't honestly know why but it just makes me want to read it more. 

5) Romance
I love romance. I don't generally like it when it's the whole plot but in order for me to want to even read the book, it has to have romance or I won't even pick it up.

4) Books from other Countries 
I love when books get translated from other countries and come out in English. It's so cool to be able to read these kinds of books and I love finding them.

3) Magic
This is also something I love. Magic/powers/gifts these things all add another level to a book in my eyes and I love that fact. It just ups the stakes and it's also harder for me to predict the plot is magic is involved because anything could happen.

2) High Fantasy 
I love these kinds of books as they really take me out of this reality and this world. Which is the whole reason I read so this really makes me happy.

1)  Art Style (Manga Only)
So I love manga as well and thought I would share the one thing that pulls me in when it comes to manga. Art style. If the art doesn't gel with me, I won't even pick it up, no matter the plot. I will just pass on it.

(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
