The Song Request Book Tag

The Song Request Book Tag

I’ve basically decided that August is the month of “Catching up on Tags from Loretta”.  So here’s another one, and listen, I am NOT Umbridge in this one, okay? Honestly I’m still a little traumatized. The Song Request Book Tag is all about music and books and I love that.  Also, the rules of this one are kind of fun, and part of the game is to listen to the challenger’s music, so I’d like to apologize in advance to the people I tag because even as I type this intro I have IDEAS and they may be a bit… eclectic.

Basically Just Moving (Me, Not the Blog) – April Wrap Up

Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge

Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge

If you’re looking for a dark Beauty and the Beast retelling with a dangerous, passionate (but not overly graphic love story), you’ll enjoy Cruel Beauty. Cruel Beauty is about Nyx, a young lady whose father has sold her away after making a deal with The Gentle Lord.  Her father hopes she’ll kill the Gentle Lord and free the land of his demons.  However, after a few weeks in his house, Nyx learns that everything is not quite as it appears.  Freeing her land will not be so simple as bringing down his house, nor killing the Gentle Lord.  And what’s worse, she […]
