The Longest Book Tag

I was tagged by the awesome Gennifer Eccles over at Ready, Set, Read! If you're not following that awesome blog, you should change that right now! Also thank you for tagging me! I love tags! 

I actually dug deep into this and didn't just guess. On a recent 50/50 Friday I put my longest book read was ACOWAR, which after I did this digging, found out isn't true... I've read longer books. So here we go! 

The Rules:
1. Make a list of the five longest books you've ever read.
2. Select two of the longest books on your TBR.
3. Discuss.
4. Tag others

1) The Host
620 Pages

2) A Court of Wings and Ruin
699 Pages

3) Breaking Dawn
756 Pages

4) Queen of Shadows 
648 Pages

5) Impulse
666 Pages

Now for my TBR I just grabbed two that were long. I didn't dig for the longest ones. That would have taken hours... 

Lady Midnight
Page Count: 698

Empire of Storms
Page Count: 693

After doing this tag I think I've discovered that I prefer longer books. The world building is better, the plot and subplots have time to move along while we still get to know the characters. That also means we can have more of the characters we love. I hate letting characters go and longer books let me keep them a wee bit longer and that makes me happy. Plus, as a speed reader, sometimes a short books just doesn't have that same feeling a long book does... if that makes any sense. Who know, I'm weird. 

Now I'm going to tag there wonderful bloggers for this fun tag!

(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
