TV Talk - 13 Reasons Why (S2)

Well, I finished season 2 over this past weekend. Unlike the first season, I paced myself, knowing I would want to take time and think about things instead of just plowing through. This season really made me think. Instead of just feeling sorry for Hannah and thinking everyone at the school was an asshole, we see that Hannah was not as innocent as she led Clay (and us) to believe. We see that she was just like the rest of them and we get to see more about the other characters that Hannah made to look like such awful people.

We get to see how Clay is still having trouble letting her go. I feel so bad for him, he loves her so much and it rips me apart to watch him suffering. Even though he did take drugs and that really rubbed me the wrong way. Moving on...

Characters that I hated in the first season got better in the second season, like Courtney: I admired her for telling the truth and finally embracing who she is. She seems so much happier now that she's come and even got a girlfriend. 

This season tackled a lot of issues just like the first season. They also showed Jessica standing up and saying what Bryce did to her. I loved everything they did with Jessica's character until the very last episode where she hooked up with Justin and cheated on Alex. That was so not cool. I don't even care.

Now, I've seen a lot tweets and people saying that the last episode should never have happened the way they did or they are telling people to skip over it. They are also getting mad saying that it shouldn't have been filmed because kids watch the show. Well, to the last one, I say; it's rated mature, kids shouldn't be watching it. Parents should be keeping a better eye on what their kids do. To the rest... I'm going to be one of the only ones with this opinion just as I was with the first season. I thought they did it perfectly, they weren't glorifying anything, they were showing how bad this stuff really is.

This series tackles issues that need to be talked about. Often times these issues are just swept under the rug and never talked about but this show doesn't hide them. This show shoves these issues into your face and makes you think about them, talk about them. That's what we need if anything is ever to change.

(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
