6 Bullet Reviews

Hello! I hope you're having a wonderful day! Thank you for stopping by my little piece of the internet. I've got a lot of reviews that I need to get done but they aren't long enough for their own post so I wanted to put them all together here in one post. We'll got a little bit of everything so let's just get to it! 

Sophie can't wait to get our of her dead-end small town and move to NY and fulfill her dreams of being a designer, so her life can finally begin but what if what she's looking for is right under her nose?

Sophie hates her small town and wants to get out of it like her father. So I couldn't relate to her very well, I miss my small town and hate big cities. But as the book goes on she sees just what she has and while she doesn't give up on her dreams, she no longer looks down on her small town. This is a cute book that not only has a cute romance but finds a young girl slowly growing up and seeing the real world for what it is.

The writing is wonderful like always and the book ends in HEA. I know that I'm slowly moving out of YA but I still love Kasie West novels because they are just so cute and sweet and the perfect escape from life.

I don't rate one star often but this was just boring! I saw so many people saying it was creepy and should be read with the lights on but I fell asleep twice while trying to read it! Twice!

I kept hoping it would get better and while it did pick up a little towards the end... it just wasn't enough. I also found two little grammar mess ups that drove me insane. This isn't self published, it shouldn't have those two mess ups. One was just a lack of space between two words. So basic and easy to catch and fix. 

Bottom line: This wasn't for me. 

The writing is very flowery and over the top. That being said, I like it! It feels very magical and otherworldly. Don't let the flowery prose fool you, this book is dark! Really dark. If you are sensitive to dark themes then DO NOT read this book. You won't like it. The drugs bothered me a lot. Enough that I'll be dropping half a star for it. Though I do like how the drugs were used... if that makes any sense at all. I don't wanna spoil anything. But in my eyes they weren't looked on... positively? I guess.

I love that this book doesn't shy away from heavy topics and shows just how dark life can be. I love the depression era setting. The romance and just how the characters never give up. That being said, it's not a happy book. It's not one to read when you want to escape the world. It's dark and gritty. It will probably make you a bit uncomfortable. That being said, this story will haunt you long after you've finished the last page.

This at face value would be my perfect cup of tea, no drugs, no cheating by the MCs and it's well written and cute.... but there was a scene that just grossed me out. Sorry but it did. I won't mention it because I want to keep my blog a family friendly space. I will just say it was a sexual scene that didn't sit well with me.

It's well written, cute, and has the couple growing together. Sure the heroine wasn't my favorite but Zach more than made up for it.

I don't do humor. My partner likes to say that I'm the most joyless person he's ever met because I'm usually a serious person. I mean I'll laugh at jokes if I find them funny but most things that normal people find funny just aren't to me? Okay no idea where I'm taking this, all I meant was that this book had me laughing out loud and giggling like a little girl. 

The MC has a smart mouth and our hero just gives it right back to her so their banter had me laughing so hard that my stomach would hurt. 

If you're looking for a cute and funny as can be romance novel, this is for you! Trust me, you'll love it.

I've not read a debut this good in such a long time!

Reverie follows Kane Montgomery after a car accident left him with amnesia. He's just trying to get his life back together and get through high school but he starts to notice that something just isn't right...

I won't lie this is one of the gayest novels that I've ever read and it was pretty dang magical. The world is rich and reminds me of a rainbow but only with words. The characters are well developed and the idea for this novel... I love anything with alternative timelines or reality and this really fits that with the reveries. I loved the Others and learning more about how all this works and the world-building.

I won't give away anything so it's hard to gush about all the stuff that I want to talk about but this book is amazing! If you were on the fence about it just jump over and buy the book, you'll be so pleased with this story.

I was given this novel in exchange for an honest review - Thank you!

P.S. That cover is so beautiful that I can't even!


Well that's it for today. Have you read any of these? What did you think? Let me know below and have a great day!

(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
