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.

Dishonor on You, Dishonor on your Cow, and Also HI!  It’s the Disney Sidekick Tag!

Dishonor on You, Dishonor on your Cow, and Also HI! It’s the Disney Sidekick Tag!

You know, I have a lot of saved tags in my drafts, and they’re all super fun, so I feel like it’s time to do more than one tag a month.  🙂 For my readers in the United States, I hope everyone had a wonderful Fourth of July last week!  We didn’t do anything much (we usually don’t) but it’s always lovely to have a day off!  The only thing I miss about the Fourth of July celebrations in my childhood is the fireworks, but alas, personal fireworks are illegal in the state of Massachusetts, so…. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Today’s tag comes from […]

July Wrap Up

July Wrap Up

I know I usually say “wow that month went by so fast”, but seriously, y’all, July?  July was a long long month.  I struggled to balance reading with writing with blogging with life with health stuff and sunshine and just everything and I am ready for autumn.  This is how you know I’m a New Englander – I’m ready for fall now. Yes? Yes. July wasn’t so bad – just busy!  I don’t like to be busy – I love me some weekends to sit at home and relish in doing nothing.  It’s the best.  August is gonna be busy too, […]

February Wrap Up

February Wrap Up

February is always the fastest month of the year.  Maybe it’s because there’s so much going on, maybe it’s because it’s technically the shortest month… I don’t know!  But here we are again at the end of it! For all you beautiful people reading this, I hope you all had an amazing Valentine’s Day, Lunar New Year, President’s Day – the whole shebang.  And all the holidays I missed.  February is ripe with holidays! My bookishness wasn’t as ambitious this month as January, but I loved all the books I got through.  It was just slow going.  February hits me hard as […]

This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales

This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales

I really, really, really enjoyed this book. I like Elise.  I get Elise.  I didn’t go through exactly what Elise did in school, but a lot of the time, I felt like she did.  High school can be brutal, guys.  Really, really brutal.  If you don’t fit in, then it’s ten times worse.  Elise’s story is about her depression hitting an absolute low, and how she comes back from that.  It’s not pretty.  In fact, a lot of times it’s really, really messy.  There are also really strong themes about cyberbullying.  But throughout the whole thing, there is a glimmer of […]
