Manga Monday - L-DK Volume 3

Another Manga Monday! Yay! I've been reading this series L-DK and I am really enjoying it so far... well this one wasn't quite as good as the last two... want to know why? Keep on reading! 

OH, BROTHER: Having acknowledged her own feelings for Shusei, Aoi must now muster the courage to tell him that she likes him. But with Shusei's popularity, will she be able to do anything before someone else snatches him up? Luckily, Shusei's older brother comes into the picture and comes up with a way to light the flame of romance in Shusei's heart, but his older brother's unconventional plan may take things too far?

Manga Breakdown 

This one starts off funny with Shuusei's friends coming over to his place and Aoi hiding so they won't see her. I thought she was going to get caught for sure but it was only a close call and their secret remains safe and sound. 

Now this volume is a lot weaker compared to the past two in my eyes. Yes, I know it's fiction and fake and doesn't compare to real life but when the language teacher is all over Shuusei... like all over him, pushing her chest in his face and then trying to get her freaking student into bed... that's just a bit much for me personally. Though I do like that he leaves the teacher tied down in a bed because she wouldn't leave him alone. Nice touch. Through all this Aoi just wishes she could spend some time with him and she does at last get her wish.

Shuusei’s older brother - Soju - is an asshat. I don't get why he just shows up and then is determined to her his brother. Shuusei's got a weird family. Soju tells Aoi that he wants her and his brother together and gives her some advice to get him. It doesn't work though and so Soju ends up kissing Aoi to show her how a kiss should be. Then he comes up with the idea that he'll come over and help make his little brother jealous... just wow. Finally Soju shows Shuusei a picture of him and Aoi kissing. 

This is my least favorite volume so far. I really hope the next ones are more like the last two and not like this one because this is not the series that I fell in love with in the last two volumes, this was just some really weird stuff that had me rolling my eyes and shaking my head.

(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
