Shadowhunter Sunday - You Are Not Your Own (Episode 12)

Alright cue the theme music and let's get on with this!

This episode was actually really good! One of my favorites so far! 

Magnus and Valentine switched bodies, which kind of makes sense after the last episode and it's something I didn't see coming. 

Alec doesn't like Sebastian.... it seems he doesn't like very many new comers at all. I guess he has to warm up to them. Sounds like my little sister ha ha.

I hate how Clary feels useless without her ruins. It's sad that she's willing to be a lab rat just to feel like she is worth something. She shouldn't feel that way. She could always just train more and be a badass shadowhunter. 

Valentine/Magnus got Dot to help with his powers. She's not the brightest star in the sky. She even commented saying he sounded like Valentine but just shrugged it off and helped him I'm assuming.  

Izzy seems to be doing a lot better now. I'm happy to see that. I was missing this Izzy a lot. The druggie Izzy wasn't as fun though it was nice to see her character arc. She's coming a long way. 

I feel bad for Alec in this episode. I often feel bad for Alec, I've noticed. He's so confused over Valentine/Magnus and who could blame him? With how tricky Valentine is, one can never really be too sure. 

Okay, my favorite part of the whole episode is the line about how hard it would be to be a Herondale and how they are treated like royalty. It was also very heavy handed. 

We also get a cute Sizzy moment and a pretty heat filled Clace moment that actually didn't make me want to throw up. Making the actors are working on their chemistry. Which I am all for! 

Jace has been outed as a Herondale. They are playing so many card in just season 2... I know they are going way off the books but if they use all the ideas now... then it will just be whatever the showrunners come up with and that might lead to more things like the shape shifting ruin....

I thought I was going to hate Sebastian but I actually really like him. I like that he helped Clary with her power, even though it was harsh it worked! They even got Valentine back into his cell. Seems like everything in this episode wrapped up nicely with a little bow on top. 

Also.... he hit on his sister. Just saying.

(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
