Blog Update

It's been over two years since I did an update post. The last one was when I was trying to get 50/50 Friday off the ground and Laura from Blue Eye Books was so freaking sweet and decided to co-host with me. The meme would not be here without her. I am terrible at coming up with topics, completely terrible! But moving on, 50/50 Friday is not why I'm writing this. 50/50 Friday is going nowhere. I love this meme and will continue it as long as possible.

In case you haven't noticed, I've been messing with my blog a lot. I got tired of the blue and black and even though I love the color black, I wanted something different, something more colorful. So pink and white it is. I've been working on trying new formats and coming up with new post ideas. I also finally bit the bullet and bought my own domain, thebutterflyreader (DOT) com. You can still use my old blogspot if that's what you're used to, it will redirect. Now while all this is going on, I do hope that you'll look over any 404 errors you get as I'm working through any bugs and kinks.

Last week was my birthday (4/25) so I'm now another year older and not any wiser. Sadly.

Next, I want to move into writing. I've been writing more lately and wanted to start sharing some of that. Most of what I write is the kind of stuff I read. So if you're into that then check out my Wattpad. Right now I only have a horror short story that my partner wanted me to write but I am planning to release something in the month of May! So stay tuned! If you want to read the horror short story then check it out below.

I'm also in the query trenches for a novel I wrote last year and have edited so heavily it's not even funny. Crossing my fingers that something good comes from it. There are a few things going on that I can't share yet but I will in the future. So for now, that's pretty much it. Thanks for reading this. I hope you all have a great Sunday!

(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
