A Nickel for My Thoughts: SEX, SEX, SEX

Yep, you read that right. Seeeeeeeeeeeeeex. Sex, vagina, penis, orgasm, clitoris, ejaculation, blow job, oral sex, penetration, any other sexual word you can think of. SEX.

Newsflash: teens have sex.

You might not want to admit it. You might not want to accept it. But you can’t change it. It’s a fact of life. Teens are having sex.

I’m not going to put an age warning on this post because teens should not be restricted from discussing their own sex lives. If we don’t talk about it, if literature doesn’t include it, what does that do to teens? It hurts them. A lot. Let’s see three of the most common representations of sex in YA literature (when sex is included at all): Continue reading

A Nickel for My Thoughts: Hello, 2016

Hello, fellow book lovers! I hope you had a lovely holiday season and are just as pumped for 2016 as I am.

You probably fall into one of two categories of people: new friends and old friends.

If you’re an old friend, thank you so much for making this transition with me. It was a tough decision to swap over to WordPress from Blogger, but I finally caved. As a chronic worrier, heart pounding and finger shaking definitely plagued me for a bit. But I decided to be impulsive. After all, the new year is the perfect time to make a change – hopefully a change for the better. So thank you for following me on this journey! You might see a few of my old reviews, but I’m hoping to do a major revamp and remodel of my blogging. So you’ll definitely be in for some treats. And new content, of course!

If you’re a new friend, welcome to Stacks Waiting. It’s a pleasure to (virtually) meet you. I hope you enjoy what you find here: some reviews, some features, some rants, some rambles, some mindless musings, and so much more. It’ll hopefully be a fun ride, so thank you for joining me!

So to both categories of people: thank you! I hope you enjoy your time here at Stacks Waiting.

With lots of bookish love,
