January Wrap Up

 

I read quite a few books this month! A lot more than I thought I had. Did I get through my TBR? Let's get into this, shall we? 


First off, let's get the hard one out of the way. I did not read every book on my TBR. Yeah, I'm disappointed in myself. 

BUT

I did read all the books on my TBR but one. So that's really good for me! I'm going to take it as a win. Let's talk about the books I read. I'll point out which ones were on my TBR as we go. 

1) Clanlands (TBR)
I talked about this one in my mid-month check-in. I loved it! It's great! It's funny and teaches you things about Scotland. The authors play so well off each other. Fully recommend! Also, the TV drops Valentine's Day. I can't wait! 






























2) A Deal with the Elf King 
This wasn't on my TBR but I saw it on Kindle Unlimited and it was compared to ACOTAR so I couldn't resist! I enjoyed this one! I've already written a review and it's coming tomorrow!

























3) Something's Wrong With Us - (TBR)
I enjoyed this manga quite a bit. The review will be coming this month for sure! So check back for that.


























4) Captive of Wolves 
I read this for my way overdue NetGalley selection. I've got LOTS of thoughts that I'll be sharing soon.





























5) Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? (TBR)
I wrote a review for this just a few days ago. You can click HERE to read it. To me, it was a little sexist but after talking with Judy from Keep The Wisdom, I've been wondering if it was meant that way for irony. Let me know what you think if you read it.  





























6) All-American Girl
As a child, I loved this novel but looking back now... it leans into one stereotype that isn't the best. The Spanish housekeeper... Except for that, it's a cute novel about seeing what's in front of you and being yourself.
 


Now, there are a few books that I didn't mention here because I talked about them in my Mid-Month Check-In. So if you want the whole story you can click HERE. Bottom line; I read all the books on my TBR but one. So, I've very proud of myself! Hopefully, I can keep this up and keep getting better. That's all from me for January. What did you read last month?

(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
