Music Monday - Recent Favorites

This meme is hosted over at Always Me It's been a while since I did something like this because I've been so into the decade stuff. Thought it was overdue. So here you go, two of my recent favorites.  I'm finally all caught up with Lucifer and just can't wait for the next and final season. I mean after that ending! My favorite season was four. It had a few problems in one episode but other than that, Netflix did a better job than the original network did. What was your favorite season if you've seen the show? This band always pumps me up. Making me feel like I can do anything. I used to listen to them on my way to work... for the strength to actually go into the school. I swear, more power to all teachers out there. I just don't know how you do it, you're like a superhero.

Birthday Girl - Review

JORDAN He took me in when I had nowhere else to go. He doesn’t use me, hurt me, or forget about me. He doesn’t treat me like I’m nothing, take me for granted, or make me feel unsafe. He remembers me, laughs with me, and looks at me. He listens to me, protects me, and sees me. I can feel his eyes on me over the breakfast table, and my heart pumps so hard when I hear him pull in the driveway after work. I have to stop this. It can’t happen. My sister once told me there are no good men, and if you find one, he’s probably unavailable. Only Pike Lawson isn’t the unavailable one. I am. PIKE. I took her in, because I thought I was helping. She’d cook a few meals and clean up a little. It was an easy arrangement.  As the days go by, though, it’s becoming anything but easy. I have to stop my mind from drifting to her and stop holding my breath every time I bump into her in the house. I can’t touch her, and I shouldn’t want to.  The more I find my path crossing

Twice in a Blue Moon - ARC Review

Sam Brandis was Tate Jones’s first: Her first love. Her first everything. Including her first heartbreak. During a whirlwind two-week vacation abroad, Sam and Tate fell for each other in only the way that first loves do: sharing all of their hopes, dreams, and deepest secrets along the way. Sam was the first, and only, person that Tate—the long-lost daughter of one of the world’s biggest film stars—ever revealed her identity to. So when it became clear her trust was misplaced, her world shattered for good. Fourteen years later, Tate, now an up-and-coming actress, only thinks about her first love every once in a blue moon. When she steps onto the set of her first big break, he’s the last person she expects to see. Yet here Sam is, the same charming, confident man she knew, but even more alluring than she remembered. Forced to confront the man who betrayed her, Tate must ask herself if it’s possible to do the wrong thing for the right reason… and whether “once in a lifetime” can c

Hate Notes - Book Breakdown

From New York Times bestselling authors Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward comes an unexpected love story of secondhand hearts and second chances… It all started with a mysterious blue note sewn into a wedding dress. Something blue. I’d gone to sell my own unworn bridal gown at a vintage clothing store. That’s when I found another bride’s “something old.” Stitched into the lining of a fabulously feathered design was the loveliest message I’d ever read: Thank you for making all of my dreams come true. The name embossed on the blue stationery: Reed Eastwood, obviously the most romantic man who ever lived. I also discovered he’s the most gorgeous. If only my true-love fantasies had stopped there. Because I’ve since found out something else about Mr. Starry-Eyed. He’s arrogant, cynical, and demanding. I should know. Thanks to a twist of fate, he’s my new boss. But that’s not going to stop me from discovering the story behind his last love letter. A love letter that did not result

IT Chapter Two - Review

This is the conclusion for the film IT from 2017. Now, I will say that I loved the first part better than this one BUT I did also enjoy this one. I loved Bill Hater and James McAvoy. They really stood out among the cast. That's not to say the rest was bad. I think all the actors did a fine job. I will say that the adult Bev isn't as cool as the kid version but that's just my personal opinion. I love that there was more humor in this one because of the humor and kinda bad CGI I wasn't scared at all. I usually get freaked out easily in scary movies. So if you want to dive into horror without being scared shirtless, this movie is a good start! I wished there had been more of Pennywise as the clown in the movies vs the CGI monsters because they're just not as scary as the actual clown. Again, just my personal opinion. My biggest gripe and this is just personal to me, it won't affect most people but I do want to mention it because if someone had told me I wo
