BOOK: Little & Lion by Brandy Colbert


Goodreads: When Suzette comes home to Los Angeles from her boarding school in New England, she isn’t sure if she’ll ever want to go back. L.A. is where her friends and family are (along with her crush, Emil). And her stepbrother, Lionel, who has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, needs her emotional support. But as she settles into her old life, Suzette finds herself falling for someone new…the same girl her brother is in love with. When Lionel’s disorder spirals out of control, Suzette is forced to confront her past mistakes and find a way to help her brother before he hurts himself–or worse.

You know what I love about the book? It’s very open. ❤ It talks about sexuality, homosexuals, race, family, friendship, knowing yourself and being okay with it. ❤ ❤ ❤

Highlights:

  • I know how easy it is to believe you’re doing the right thing if you say it to yourself often enough.
  • It makes me think there’ll never be a time when we question our bond.
  • Maybe you’re bi. maybe you’re not. Maybe you’re somewhere on the spectrum. Bi.. queer… it doesn’t really matter, as long as you’re happy. Just make sure you don’t let anyone tell you what you are. People can be real assholes about labels.
  • I will never be done with you. Ever.

 

I recommend this book. ❤ It’s a 4/5 for me.

MOVIE: GRAY MATTERS


I snatched this copy from my sister. And I never thought it was a purple movie.

The movie is about the coming out of Gray. Sam, her brother are inseparable. They both decided they would look for a date for each other. Though she finds herself in love with the wife of her brother. Oh boy! A hole I don’t want to be in.

First of all: Lesbians, Gays and Bisexuals are so much more fun!

Here are some of the quotes:

Carrie: This is the package ok? It’s exactly the same under the wrapping. This is the packages, no exchanges, no returns. Right? Why does our society push us to be perpetually uncomfortable with who we are. It’s so messed up! Wanna know why? Luscious Liposuction. Flawless face lifts.” That’s why. Enough is enough. We need to stop letting society and media and our religious leaders delegate who we are.

Gray:  I’m never going to be able to walk down the street, holding hands with my partner without the rest of the world giving us a look. And me never have the wedding that I once dreamed of and I may never have children. And one day when I die people will never give as much respect to my grieving lover as if she were my husband.It’s so much easier to be someone else.

Aside from all of this, everyone expects Gray to you know, find her true love and live happily ever after. But she didn’t. And that’s what I love about the movie. What made her essentially and genuinely happy was the fact that she is now comfortable in her own skin and happy about who and what she is.
