Imagine Me and You...

Hiya Chicks!

Have you ever watched a movie or read a book that touches you? In a way that just reaches in and strips everything away.

Something so personal, so private that you feel like you should be locked in a dark room. That way no one can see just how much you are affected. 

How confusing it is when something as simple as a movie can strip you bare.

Welcome to Imagine Me and You,ladies.

Watching this movie hurt. It hurt for me to see the pain that Rachel and her husband and Luce all went through.

None of them wanted to hurt the other. It really highlights how despite choosing a path, life just happens. There's nothing you can do about it either.
In a way, it was like I watching my own life.
All the confusion, and not wanting to hurt the person you've committed to.

When someone loves you,and makes their entire life about loving and taking care of you, how do you destroy that?

I met my husband, and fell in love. We loved each other so much that we wanted to take the next step, get married. 

I don't know if it was getting married and finally feeling safe enough to explore myself? Or meeting a girl that just made all those feelings explode out from where I had hidden them?

All he wants is to love me and take care of me and be my partner in life and love forever. 
How can you say no to that? How can you crush someone's whole world?

When someone gives you their everything, and all they want is to love you,and be loved in return, how can you not? 

I love him.

But I have a side to me that will never be completely fulfilled by a man. Lately I've even been wondering if I am even happy with a man..

There's this part of me that craves a woman's touch. I don't think that will ever go away. 

I do still enjoy sex with my husband though. If i'm being completely honest, not all the time. I have times when I can't stand it, and just want it to be over. But other times I can't get enough of him.

Some days it seems like all I have are questions, and no answers...

Socialpunk Book Review

Hi Chicks!
I was recently asked to join the blog tour for Socialpunk by Monica Leonelle.

Monica Leonelle is a well-known digital media strategist and the author of three novels. She blogs at Prose on Fire and shares her writing and social media knowledge with other bloggers and authors through her Free Writer Toolkit.

The Socialpunk Trilogy includes Socialpunk (April 2012), Socialmob (July 2012), and Socialhood (October 2012).

Socialpunk Description:

Ima would give anything to escape The Dome 
and learn what's beyond its barriers, but the 
Chicago government has kept all its citizens 
on lock down ever since the Scorched Years 
left most of the world a desert wasteland.
When a mysterious group of hooded figures enters the city unexpectedly, Ima uncovers a plot to destroy The Dome and is given the choice between escaping to a new, dangerous city or staying behind and fighting a battle she can never win.

I was seriously blown away by this book. It was a short read at 275 pages. One of the things I really liked was that Monica tackled the subject of humans artificially  creating life. It is a pretty controversial subject, but it's done very well

Socialpunk is definitely good for anyone who likes books about the future.I think the fact that the author sets the book in that time period definitely helps. It puts the book in a setting that enhances the story, instead of detracting from it. 

I'm someone who doesn't read a lot of sci-fi/fantasy books. They just don't appeal to me. I loved Socialpunk though. It was easy to relate to the character's struggles, and sympathize with Ima's struggle to adjust and adapt to a new world. To also choose between what she loves, and what is right.

I liked that Ima came into her own, and became the strong person I was rooting for  her to be.  The Story reminded me of the terminator series a little bit, but mostly  in a way better, more female empowered way that was totally badass.

All in all, Socialpunk was amazing, and I can't wait for the next two books! A great book to read and recommend! ~ALICE
