Occupational Hazard
I've had my heart stattered
so often
I'm constantly looking for the
next hammer
at this point
it's just expected
an occupational hazard
i'm cupid's version
of a bright red flag
a girlfriend shaped stop sign
i stand at the edge of a precipice
or a crossroads
i'm a brief pause before the continuation ofyour journey
to your happy ending
a reality check
a reminder to stop and look twice
im the clickbait
a misleading title
the clouds
that must part
and brak before the sun shines through
you see
i am never bright enough
to shine through and be that mesmerising
not to anyone
you look up at the sky and smile
but noone appreciates the rain
unless it eventually stops
and makes way for the clear sky.

The university was a little bit like my high school cafeteria. I learned quickly where I belonged and rarely ventured into the orbit of the popular crowd

We stare at each other, wrestling with this moment that feels both new and unfamiliar, both what we asked for and something we didn't expect.

If you don’t think the song “money, money, money” by ABBA is literally Lily and Remus, then are you really a Marauders era fan?

For all the people that have watched the Beauty and the Beast movies (both animated and the real life version,idk what u call it.)
I'm sure that we have heard the song...
"Something there."
Both Belle and Beast describe Tessa and Will's characters and story sooo much.
Not to mention, in the last part of the song When Misses Teacup and the other objects start singing, I can imagine Bridget, Sophie, Charlotte, Gideon and even Henry singing.
There is also a Violin in the background, AND I JUST IMAGINE JEM PLAYING IT FOR THEM.

Yay for  mates! I love it when it just happens, and even more so when one, or both,  insist on denying it. This book had all that, and more, with some suspense,  and some heartaches. Loved the characters and how different they were, but  still connected and cared. This book had me waiting for the magic moment  between these two, and it did not disappoint when it came!

Thank you Netgalley for this Arc! ❤
In the Ravenous Dark by A. M. Strickland is an intense and dark story full of dangerous magic and romance.
Rovan lives in Thanopolis with her mother and has been hiding that she is a blood mage her whole life. However, all of that changes one day at the market place when Rovan's current lover is in danger and she uses blood magic to save her. The story continues with Rovan becoming a member of the life at the palace and mixing with royals while learning more about what exactly being a blood mage in Thanopolis entails.
One of my favorite aspects to this book was the way A.M. Strickland wrote about gender and sexuality. I love how Rovan and her friends were able to talk about this and be who they truly are, at least around each other.
Get ready for a fast paced and action packed story full of magic and love!

Lanzarme a escribir New Adult fue una de las cosas de las que jamás me arrepentiré. 😋😋😋 Gracias a este género estoy navegando por historias que no se pueden plasmar en la romántica adulta, ya que, como todos sabemos, la edad nos lleva a preocuparnos de diferentes cosas según crecemos. También, gracias a esta incursión, he conocido a gente fabulosa que me han abierto sus blogs, su instagram... para dar a conocer mis novelas y disfrutar al mismo tiempo de ellas. 📚📚📚 Y, sobre todo, gracias a este mundo han aparecido lectores que cuidais todas estas historias que salen de mi cabeza con mimo y mucho cariño. 💜💜💜 La serie #YLlegasteTú fue un salto al vacío pero ese vacío se llenó con vuestro interés por descubrir libro a libro a estos personajes que me robaron el corazón. 😍😍😍 Gracias por vuestro apoyo, ya sabéis que sin él, nada de esto sería posible. 🍀 ¿Conocéis la serie? ¿Ya la habéis leído? ¿La tenéis entre vuestras pendientes? 🍀 Cuidaos mucho familia 😘😘 🍀 🍀 🍀 #mivida #merchediolch #mylife #writer #author #remembers #dreams #libro #book #read #bookish #instabook #bookstagramespaña #bookstagram #bookblogger #bookishlove #reflexiones #pensamientos #photooftheday #photo #microcuento #micro #microrrelatos #microrrelato #librosclick #nubico @clickediciones

REVIEW // Karen Memory by Elizabeth Bear
This book is a fun romp. Honestly, that's the best way I can describe it. A prostitute, her girlfriend, and her prostitute friends try to save the city from a racist, misogynist evil villain with the help of a marshal with a cool mustache and his deputy. It's FUN. Bear pays homage to several historical figures such as Mary Ann Conklin, Tye Leung Schulze, and the real Marshal Bass Reeves. Yes, the book is very on the nose at times with its "girl power", "down with the racist and sexist white men" message, but, honestly, is that a bad thing? I have almost 20 highlights from this book featuring moments when I said "yes, girl, TAKE DOWN THE PATRIARCHY". Here are a few examples:
image: official cover art
"Amazing what people can fail to see when it’s a man doing it to
a woman, even a respectable-looking woman."
"She had years and miles on Dyer Stone, and brains to boot.
But he had a prick, and inherited money, and a prick. I guess
that gave him the right to lord it over her."
Yes, a lot of these really beat you on the head with the point. But I enjoyed it. So there. There is just one more line I want to point out:
"I realized that if I was only being her friend because I wanted to
get into her bloomers then I was a pretty lousy friend and a
pretty lousy romantic prospect."
Please drill this in the heads of every "friend-zoned" love triangle participant that inevitably pops up in half of all YA books.
Karen is a wonderful narrator-her grammar and side comments only add to the story. Often times I've found that this technique can be cringe-y or distracting, but Karen is so lovable and funny that it feels like we're sitting around a fire while she recounts the adventures of her youth.

Day 14: JOMPBPC: Biggest Writing Pet Peeve
I didn't know what to do for this prompt, so I took a photo of this sweet graphic novel that I loved reading last year and I'm excited to buy and read Vol. 4! 🧡

I am not resigned to the shutting away of loving hearts in the hard ground. So it is, and so it will be, for so it has been, time out of mind: Into the darkness they go, the wise and the lovely.  Crowned With lilies and with laurel they go; but I am not resigned. Lovers and thinkers, into the earth with you. Be one with the dull, the indiscriminate dust. A fragment of what you felt, of what you knew, A formula, a phrase remains,—but the best is lost. The answers quick and keen, the honest look, the laughter, the love,— They are gone.  They are gone to feed the roses.  Elegant and curled Is the blossom.  Fragrant is the blossom.  I know.  But I do not approve. More precious was the light in your eyes than all the roses in the world. Down, down, down into the darkness of the grave Gently they go, the beautiful, the tender, the kind; Quietly they go, the intelligent, the witty, the brave. I know.  But I do not approve.  And I am not resigned.
Edna St. Vincent Millay; Dirge Without Music
