Music Monday - Karliene

This meme is hosted over at Always Me

When I was little my grandmother read the book Memoirs of a Geisha. I saw the cover and the model's eyes grabbed me. I wanted to read the book too. So my parents got me a copy and I started to read it. I'd discuss parts of it with my grandma but I never got to finish it... I took it to school and a friend wanted to read it and so I let her read it over lunch. The school found out and decided it wasn't right for someone my age to read this and to share it at school. They took the book, I didn't want to tell my parents because I'd already gotten into trouble for something else recently and didn't want to start more drama. 

But years later, when I was out of that school and their rules, I found the book used and picked it up and finally finished it. I loved it. I also love the movie. It really feels like another world and this song gave me that feeling back. 

This song I heard because of the TV show Vikings and when I saw she did a cover, I was all over it! Hope you enjoy this one too!
