Mala Santa Book Tag

Before this tag, I had never heard of Becky G. According to my research, she's a 22-year-old Latin singer/songwriter who started out doing covers on YouTube. Leelynn created this original tag + graphics using Becky G's brand-new LP. (She is the true Queen of Tags.) Music, graphics, and books? What a find! Now let me… Continue reading Mala Santa Book Tag

Adam Parrish Appreciation Post: Our Bi King

In my Perfect Romance Novel post, I mentioned that I love bisexual bois but rarely see them in fiction. I'd completely forgotten about The Raven Cycle's Adam Parrish. (Turn back now if you don't want to be spoiled.) (CW: abuse)   In The Raven Boys, Adam develops a crush on Blue. They "date" for a while, but… Continue reading Adam Parrish Appreciation Post: Our Bi King

Pre-Netflix Grishaverse Tag

So Netflix is developing a Six of Crows series. I'm still waiting for news on Syfy's Raven Cycle adaptation, but Six of Crows should satisfy me till then. Real-life Jesper, please. Listen: the fans want their favorite series to be respected. And, honestly Netflix, it's best you don't screw up the representation. Make up for canceling Tuca and Bertie. And Sense8. And One… Continue reading Pre-Netflix Grishaverse Tag
