Music Monday - Imbolc + Rant (Sorry)

This fun meme is hosted over at Always Me I missed last week! Sorry! I’ve been having a tough time with my classes. I think my teacher hates me. He’s clearly a Christian guy. Which, before I go further, I am NOT hating on Christians. I don’t hate or judge anyone for their spiritual beliefs because it’s such a personal thing.  At the start of the year, he talked about how God had a plan for all of us and he just knew it. Which is fine, that didn’t offend me personally, but it offended one of my classmates because they are atheistic.  He’s been slowly showing his true colors more. I have a few classmates that use they/them pronouns and he always gets upset when we use them to refer to them.  One day, one of those students was absent. We have a group chat and they’d told us they were taking a mental health day. So someone spoke up and said that they wouldn’t be there that day.  The teacher got super upset and was like, “You mean SHE won’t be here. Because SHE is a SHE!”  If I knew how to

Guide to the Desperate Debutantes Trilogy by Juila London

This book starts out with Ava and her sister, Phoebe, and Greer, their cousin; they are in no rush to be married because their mother/aunt wants them to make a good match and she’s loaded so... it’s all good; until she dies and their step-father/uncle takes all the money for himself and his little mistress. He fires most of their servants and sends his horrible sister to watch over them and says that when he gets back from making sure his mistress still wants him, he’s gonna marry them off to whoever. So Ava, being the oldest, knows that if she makes a good match, then it could save them. So she sets on sights on a real rake. Jared and his father just can’t see eye to eye. His father wants him married and popping out children so they can keep the Dukedom going. Jared loves his mistress and doesn’t want a wife. Finally, after Ava catches his attention, he asks her to marry him to solve both their problems. Only when they marry Ava seems to want him to love her... that was not part of th

Music Monday - La Scaltra

This meme is hosted over at Always Me Welcome to another Music Monday! One of the few things I love about Mondays. Music is one of the few things that can really shift my mood. If I'm having a bad day, I put on something with a good beat and dance for a bit. If I want something to help me focus, I find a good ambiance and just chill. Music is very powerful!  Today I thought I'd share some darkwave with you. They also label themselves as 'witch rock' which just sounds epic! Which was your favorite? Let me know! I hope you have a safe week! Wear a mask! And I hope you read a really good book!

Music Monday - Pagan Songs

This meme is hosted over at Always Me I’ve been doing a lot of soul searching here recently... lots of trying to discover my beliefs. It’s been hard. My family raised me in a very extreme religion and even then my parents took it farther than the church. My partner often says that they brainwashed me in their cult. Sometimes; it really feels that way. That being said, I’ve always been drawn to a more Pagan path and so I’ve been reading more on the subject and listening to these wonderful songs. I hope you enjoy them.  That's it for this post! I hope you have a great week! Stay safe! Wear a mask! And as always, happy reading! 

Living-Room Matsunaga-san - Manga Series Review

It’s been a long time since I’ve reviewed any manga on here! To be honest, it’s been a while since I read any manga. I love manga, but I read so fast that I feel I can get through a volume in like 30 minutes... and when a series runs for 11 volumes at about $13 for each one; it adds up.  So I usually just have to relay on my library and they rarely have what I like to read and scans are so unreliable. BUT, I could find all the volumes that are out right now at my library! I read them all in two days!  And because I was so hooked, I looked the other two volumes up online as scans. I don’t feel so bad about it because this series is one I’m going to buy and read repeatedly.  It’s not perfect by any means. There is a very large age between the Meeko and her love interest. Which isn’t bad... but she’s underage; in high school. He’s a grown adult.  That part really messed with my head, but I tried to remember that not only was it fiction, but other cultures differ from ours and have differe

Music Monday - AL1ICE

This meme is hosted by Always Me Today I thought I'd share a really cool goth adjacent band. I found them not too long ago on Bandcamp and bought all their stuff. I hope you enjoy these two songs! Well, that's I got this time! Which was your favorite? Did you have a good weekend? I hope you have a great week! Stay safe out there! Wear a mask and lastly, happy reading!
