Music Monday - The Dead of Night

This meme is hosted over at Always Me I've not really been listening to much music this week. I checked out the new Avril Lavigne album but was rather disappointed by it. I felt her song writing took a huge nose dive from her last album. Otherwise, I've been listening to a lot of ambiances.  I hope you enjoy these! Sit back and let your mind relax. Tell me which was your favorite. Have a great week and stay safe!

Friday 5 - Boarding Schools

So the five can be connections of any kind. Books can have been read last year or any year. Books can be used more than once.They may not have been read yet. They might be ones you just bought or want to buy.  It can be as simple or as complicated as you like. Maybe it’s not a list of actual books, but things connected to books – e.g. favourite book shops, recipes etc. It might even be five movies related to books or five poems or five poets or five bookish moments, five thoughts about reading – be creative! -  The Book Date When I saw this was a thing I just had to jump in! It's so much fun and easy to do! The theme I've chosen is boarding schools!  Have you read any of these? Let me know below! Have a great weekend and stay safe!

Devil in Disguise & Gentleman Seeks Bride - Reviews

These reviews are a long time coming! I've been falling behind on my reviews and for that, I'm sorry! It's been hard to juggle school and blogging and I'm failing.  But for now, let's focus on these two stories. Shall we? In this delightful flip of a classic romance trope, Megan Frampton creates a handsome, witty, hero in need of a wealthy bride who meets his match in Lady Jane Capel, from A Wicked Bargain with the Duke. Perfect for fans of Sarah MacLean, Tessa Dare, and Eloisa James.It's a well-known fact that, when a man is in search of a bride, a good dowry is never a hindrance.  Thomas Sharpe is handsome, well-bred, and desperately in need of a wealthy bride. His father has lost their income, his sister needs looking after, and so, to save them all from a life of poverty, he travels to London in search of an heiress. Enter Lady Jane Capel. After her fiancé ended their engagement two years ago, Jane boldly left her parents' home and moved in with her half

Music Monday - Pretty Woman

This meme is hosted over at Always Me I recently watched Pretty Woman for the second time and I fell even more in love with it. I can't believe the first time I'd ever seen this film was 2019. I know it's not perfect and some have even labeled it 'problematic'. I guess I'm that person that can look over 'flaws' and still enjoy something. After all, nothing is perfect. I mean, we, as humans, are imperfect, how can we created anything 100% perfect?  So today, I'm sharing two of my favorite songs from the soundtrack. I hope you enjoy it! Which is your favorite? Have you seen Pretty Woman? Do you like it? That's all for this Music Monday. I hope you have a great week. Stay safe and happy reading!

Music Monday - Dorothy & Joel DELEŌN

Music Monday is hosted at Always Me As I get this post ready, I'm watching the Rhythm Dance Ice Skating. That's right. I finally caved. It's my first time watching any of the Winter Olympics. I got Peacock just to watch this and the Super Bowl.  It's so inspiring to watch these amazing athletes! Makes me want to to be that passionate about something and put hard work into it.  But that's not really why we're here. We're here to listen to some music! So let's get to it!   Two very different vibes for today but hey, hopefully you find one that you like. I hope you have a great week. Happy Valentine's Day. Stay safe! Lastly, happy reading little Butterfly!

Music Monday - 2000's Rock Throwback

This meme is hosted at Always Me I don't know why but I've always had a thing for 2000's rock. It's a product of it's time to be sure but there's nothing quite like it. The 2000's was the last time that rock had a real strong presence on the radio. After that, dance and EDM took over and then rap/hip-hop came onto the scene.  What your favorite genre of music? Mine is goth but I love so many branches that sometimes it changes. It's fluid.  Anyhoo, that's it for this week? Which song was your favorite? Let me know below! Stay safe little butterfly! 

7 Books Releasing in February I Can't Wait To Read

Hello there. Welcome to my tiny little corner of the internet. Today I want to share the February releases I'm excited to get my hands on!  Jess needs a fresh start. She’s broke and alone, and she’s just left her job under less than ideal circumstances. Her half-brother Ben didn’t sound thrilled when she asked if she could crash with him for a bit, but he didn’t say no, and surely everything will look better from Paris. Only when she shows up – to find a very nice apartment, could Ben really have afforded this? – he’s not there. The longer Ben stays missing, the more Jess starts to dig into her brother’s situation, and the more questions she has. Ben’s neighbors are an eclectic bunch, and not particularly friendly. Jess may have come to Paris to escape her past, but it’s starting to look like it’s Ben’s future that’s in question. The socialite – The nice guy – The alcoholic – The girl on the verge – The concierge Everyone’s a neighbor. Everyone’s a suspect. And everyone knows somet

Imbolc

The main theme of this Sabbat is new beginnings.  Imbolc has a rich history that dates back to the 10th century. It falls right in the middle of the winter solstice and the spring equinox. It usually falls on the first of February, (in the Northern half of the world. Below the equator, it’s celebrated on another day). The name Imbolc comes from Irish Gaelic, and it translates to Ewe’s milk . I’ve seen another translation  which is in the belly . Either translation generally means the same thing: Imbolc signals the coming end of winter when animals will soon breed and planting season's right around the corner.  To the Celts, this was one of four fire festivals. It was a celebration that the coldest and darkest part of the year was over. Which makes sense since they depended on the crops that grew and we know that in winter crops do not grow.  Imbolc signaled the Celtic society coming back to life in a way. During the winter, no warfare was allowed. Everyone had to ration food, bad
