Whisper Me A Love Song - Manga Monday

  An adorable new yuri manga for fans of Kase-san and Yamada and Bloom Into You. One day, high school girl Himari sees a girl, Yori, sing in a band, and it awakens feelings she doesn't understand... but Yori does! Bubbly, energetic first-year high school student Himari falls head over heels for her senpai Yori after hearing her band perform on the first day of school. Himari tells Yori she just loves her, and, to Himari's surprise, Yori says she loves Himari back! But when Himari realizes that she and her senpai are feeling two different kinds of love, she begins to ask herself what "love" really means... Manga Breakdown I hate to admit this but I've never read an f/f manga. I know! What took me so long! So I set out to change that by picking up this Yuri (what the Japanese call f/f manga) book and give it a go! It's cute and follows our two girls: Himari and Yori when they first meet each other and from there the story goes on. The art is stunning, a little b

Video Game Nonesense - Urbz: Sims in the City

The Sims have moved to the City where there's always action and where reputation means everything. In the Urbz: Sims in the City, you can go to work at such locations as the Sushi Bar, Chop Shop, or Bootleg Fireworks, Inc. Success at work brings promotions, access to new power socials, and gear to influence your new lifestyle. It's up to you whether your Urbz become big-time players on the street or are lost in the crowd. It's all about reputation as The Urbz are living the dream in a City that never sleeps. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This was a game I played as a little one back in the day. It was released holiday 2004 and I didn't get it till around 2007 when I saw my friend playing on her Game Boy Advance. My parents ended up getting me a DS and I played that version of the game. Which isn't much different. This was the first time I ever got to play the Sims but not the first I'd heard of them. I'd had a friend three years older who had go

Music Monday - Icon for Hire

This meme is hosted at Always Me How is everyone doing this week? I've been so busy with my new seasonal job that I've not been really doing anything but working and sleeping. To go from being a stay at home mummy to 40 hour week was a little rough on my body but I'm slowly adjusting. Thanksgiving is this week! I hope you're all going to stay safe and sound. This will be my first Thanksgiving without my father so I'm going to try extra hard to make it special for my mum and sister. Wish me luck!  I hope you enjoy these two songs by one of my favorite bands, Icon for Hire. They've been having some new stuff come out and so far I've liked most of it. I'm not the biggest fan of seeds because I just don't like how they choose to do the word seeds and how it fits with the music, plus it reminds me a lot of BMTH with Kick Me When I'm Down. That's just me, it's still a decent song, just not one I'll replay a lot. I do love that the two of th

3 Mini NetGalley Reviews ( Memory Lane, Insatiable Hunger, & The Haunting of Beatrix Greene)

Beatrix Greene has made a name for herself in Victorian England as a reputable spiritual medium, but she’s a fraud: even she knows ghosts aren’t real. But when she’s offered a lucrative job by James Walker—a scientist notorious for discrediting pretenders like her—Beatrix takes the risk of a lifetime. If her séance at the infamously haunted Ashbury Manor fools him, she will finally have true financial freedom. If she fails, her secret will become her public shame. But James has his own dark secrets, and he believes only a true medium can put them to rest. When Beatrix’s séance awakens her real gift—and with it, a vengeful spirit—James finds that the answers he seeks are more dangerous than he could have imagined. Together, with a group of supernatural sleuths, Beatrix and James race to settle the ghost’s unrest before it strikes— or else they might not make it out of the haunted manor alive. New York Times bestselling author Rachel Hawkins, along with Ash Parsons and Vicky Alvear Shect

A Five Star and One Star Review

A Sensual, Powerful, And Thought Provoking Tarzan Retelling Eden Matthews stumbled upon the discovery of a lifetime while photographing wildlife deep in the heart of Africa… A gorgeous god of a man living in the wilds of the African jungle among a family of gorillas… When he saves her life she’s compelled to uncover the man’s tragic past and the fate which led him to grow up in the wild. But Eden soon learns she can take man from the wild, but she can’t take the wild out of the man… When her savage savior soon shows her just want he wants of her…her sensual surrender, she finds she can’t resist him teaching her how to love…in the wild. Mini Book Breakdown So.... no. I didn't like this one. The writing was great. It flowed perfectly, I never had to stop and wonder what I'd just read. But what got me was the story itself... insta-love, magic caves, and really not much character development. This was basically a worse version of the Disney movie but with sex and weird magic stuff.

Amazon's Censorship

 If you've been around my blog long enough, you'll know that I hate censorship! I believe that we have the right to express our artistic views however we wish. It should be a personal choice or a parent's choice for their child. But a company making my choices for me? Or a book reviewer who didn't like a book getting the choice of deciding if that book is now even going to be published? NOPE!     But we're not talking about a person today. We are talking about the company. Not just any company; Amazon.     Yes, I know that they are allowed to sell or not sell whatever the heck they want and we can shop somewhere else.     BUT    Where does it end? And is this the start of something? Also, if big companies start censoring things, it makes them harder to find and thus the creator might not be able to continue doing what they love if not enough people know about it and support it. Lastly, why is it only certain titles that get this treatment?   What started this was a
