Mid-Month Reading Update

It feels like it's been forever since I last wrote a post! I know my last post wasn't that long ago because I always plan and have posts for a few weeks in advance, only I ran out! Eek! 

I've not been reading a lot. I've been gaming and trying to work with my kiddo on her meds. That's a large trial! Her old meds aren't working anymore, and she's not doing well. So hopefully things will settle when we get to talk to her doctor at the end of the month. 

I've been gaming a lot. Playing things like, Until Dawn, Animal Crossing, and replaying some Horizon on the new PS5. I'm loving these games! 

I've also been writing! I got a new little short story that I'm going to post sometime soon. I've been editing another story that I hope to query. Fingers crossed something good will come from that project. 

But I did manage to read a little! I'm halfway through Becoming and I did finish one book! 

***Short Review***

Another entry in the series. Some might find this problematic, so if - for some reason - you want to read this series, be warned.

The problematic element comes in the form of the kickass Jimena. She's a POC that was in a gang and ended up doing time. So she's pretty stereotypical but I do love her sass so much! The rest of the girls would be nothing without her! Also... there was a white dude that called her ghetto but he has a crush on her so it's like it's no big deal...? I cringed hard during that part so I just want to warn those so they don't get hurt or triggered.


So that's a wrap for this one! What have you read so far this month? Any great books to recommend? Let me know! And as always, 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
