Manga Monday - L-DK Volume 4

Here we go again! Another Manga Monday! I'm really glad I brought this back as I'm enjoying it very much. 

A series of unexpected occurrences along with some exciting and thrill-filled summer events bring Aoi and Shusei closer than ever before. And with the rising temperature, things start to heat up in their living arrangement! Will Aoi’s seemingly impossible love come to fruition or will it all pass as just another summer romance?

Manga Breakdown

This one starts off with Soju showing Shuusei the photo where he kisses Aoi, but the younger doesn't seem bothered by it at all. He plays it off very well which is more than I can say about Aoi, she punches Soju in the face and it was a wonderful moment. The asshat deserved it! Aoi apologizes to Shuusei for her behavior but he tells her to that Soju's kiss doesn't count as her first kiss and kisses under her eye. 

While studying Aoi’s female friends talk about what parts they like most about men’s bodies and it gets Aoi nervous as everything about Shūsei turns her on. It even gets kind of weird where she's trying to touch him in his sleep. I think this scene was meant to be sexy but it was just awkward to me. 

Shuusei’s little cousin Momo visits and wants him to take her to the water park. Where she treats him like her boyfriend. Again, this chapter in the story is kind of weird too. She's family and yet she's pressing her chest against him and just weird. But again, it is fiction and not real so while it was weird, it didn't really bother me that much. It really came down to her just being so lonely.

Aoi and Shuusei plan to go to the fireworks festival, but her brother Kento shows up and drama unfolds. At first Kento doesn't like Shuusei and thinks he's just using his sister but once he gets to know him, he says he will cover for Aoi with their father. They end up enjoying the fireworks as this volume comes to a close. 

This one is a lot better than the last one but it's still kinda weird compared to the first two. I'm still going to keep reading this series as I do find it fun and like I said in my review for volume 1, I'm so picky when it comes to art style that it's hard for me to find a manga I want to read. So hopefully, volume 5 is more like 1-2 and not 3-4 but we shall see!

(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
