February Wrap Up!

It's that time of the month once again where we see if I actually met my TBR goals. Place your bets now before we dive into this. Got them in? Okay then, let's go!

I read every single book on my TBR but one. BUT, it wasn't my fault, the library didn't give me the copy because the snowstorm messed up everything. Which is completely understandable. We can't control the weather! 

So the book I didn't get to read...?

I had really hoped to get through this book this month but I will push it to next month. Hopefully the library will get a copy in by then. Fingers crossed! 

I did switch Becoming for another book the library offered instead and it was life changing. I will be leaving a full review soon so please check back for that. This book is just that good.

World Wide Gothic: A Chronicle of a Tribe - Mini Review
This book takes you right to the start of goth. It lists the bands that started the movement and fashion and even branches out into the gothic term. I loved looking up the bands mentioned that I didn't know and finding that I liked a few of them. I would beware if I were new to the goth scene or just someone who wanted to read and learn more. The author uses gothic and goth as if they were the same thing and they're not. She lists gothic metal bands that aren't a part of the goth subculture. But this book is called worldwide GOTHIC. Keep that in mind, and it's all good. I do love that she goes all around Europe and even into the Japanese gothic scene. I really enjoyed the part where she mentions books and movies as I loved pretty much everything she listed.

In case you've missed any, I will link the book reviews I've done for the books on my TBR this month.

I did reread a few of my favorites this month as well so I will link to my old reviews if you want to read them. My old reviews suck so be warned. 

That's a wrap for this month! What did you read? What was your favorite read last month? Let me know below! Have a great day and stay safe!

(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
