F Is For Friday – 21 Jan 2022

Friday night in bed with a favorite book, hot green tea and chocolate cookies, what could be better? πŸ˜‰ I feel happy reading one of my favorite series, The Mediator. I’m on book 2 and it’s been a hilarious ride so far.

Music Monday – 17 Jan 2022 – Something That I Already Knew – Backstreet Boys

Hey you guys, so despite a good start to January I still haven’t been able to be more consistent with blogging. Along with the lack of time, it’s like I have a block in my mind or something that’s stopping me from blogging. But being stubborn as a mule is a good thing in this case because persistence will prevail, right? If at first you don’t succeed, persist, persist, persist again. Am I right?

Alright, on to the music part. Yes, I admit it with pride, ten thousand years later I still love the Backstreet Boys as much as I did when I was sixteen lol. I think if I live long enough and the planet is hit by a meteor and if I’m lucky enough to get a seat on a lifeboat, say to Mars, all the albums of the Backstreet Boys will have a prominent place in my iPod. So future generations, prepare to be spammed with BSB on repeat! Mwahahahaha *evil laugh*

Here you go, Something That I Already Knew by the great Backstreet Boys for you guys lol. Enjoy!

I miss Drew and his posts. I think he’d be one of the first people to rag me on my taste of music lol. Here’s to keeping your blog memes alive, Drew.

F Is For Friday – 03 Dec 2021

Omg it’s finally Friday! Yes and the day is over, thank God. Oof, another day in hellhole done. How about you guys? How are you dealing with this new Omicron variant? Sometimes when the days are dark and devoid of hope, I wonder if this pandemic will ever end. There doesn’t seem to be a light at the end of the tunnel. Depressing thought, uh?

All we can do at times is endure, prepare for the worst and try, just try to have a tiny seed of hope. And be grateful for what we have, for the people we loce that are here with us.

Read this in one day, not because it was a novella but I just didn’t want to stop reading it. It was too short and I want more!

Music Monday – 22 Nov 2021 – Unwell – Matchbox Twenty

Hola, peeps. I’m so depleted today. How is everyone doing? Hope you’re having a better start of the week than me.

As they say, an oldie but goldie. Can you believe I’ve never watched the official vid for this song? It’s still one of my favorite songs of all time.

F Is For Friday – 12 Nov 2021

Hey, guys, how was your week? Mine was “Days of Our Lives in Hellhole”. This week at work it was hard not letting the racial discrimination get to me. I wanted to turn into Hulk and smash everything and everyone to pulp. However, I abstained.

But I am darn glad the week is over.

Music Monday – 08 Nov 2021 – Ashes – Claire Guerreso

Hi. My name is Lyn and I’m a struggling, pessimistic bookdragon and music-lover. I used to be good at juggling – my work life, my personal life, my hobbies, my anxiety and depression. Now, all the balls I had in the air keep slipping my fingers and falling. I keep trying to get back on track, to set a good routine, to feel some purpose again but it feels like an impossible feat to accomplish. Which is why I haven’t been blogging or doing any bookstagram posts.

To anyone struggling out there, you’re not alone. Hang in there. One step at a time, One day at a time. Ashes is a beautiful song and if you haven’t heard it before, you should give it a try. May it help you get through one more step, one more day.

Also, I want to dedicate this simple post to Drew @ The Tattooed Book Geek who is the creator of Music Monday. I miss his posts.

Here’s to hoping trying to get back on track sticks this time.

F Is For Friday – 08 Oct 2021

Hey, guys, how have you all been? September was a dreadful, trying month for me. It’s not until today that I finally found myself in a place where I felt like I could blog again. I hope ya’all fared better.

What better way to start blogging again than with a post about gratitude?

Saturday Stars – 07 Aug 2021 – Nikolai Lantsov (King of Scars & Rule of Wolves)

Well, peeps I’m watching The Suicide Squad (2021) on this tiring Saturday evening and the movie is so bad, it’s like being witness to a train wreck and unable to look away. Lol.

But let’s not digress. Today, I give to you Nikolai Lantsovβ€”privateer, prince charming, demon king.

Saturday Star: Nikolai Lantsov
Book/Series: Siege & Storm, Ruin & Rising, King of Scars, Rule of Wolves – Leigh Bardugo

When I first met Nikolai in Siege & Storm (The Grisha trilogy), I was totally charmed and he became one of my favorite characters in this series. I hadn’t thought it possible to like him even more. Then I read King of Scars and I fell deeper for him. And in Rule of Wolves, there was no resisting him. I was done for.

Reading his POV in King of Scars, there was so much depth to him I couldn’t help but love him. There was a surprising sweetness under all that charming swagger of his. The deeper exploration into his character left me awed and fascinated. You think you understood him but there was so much more to him than he let anyone see.

In Rule of Wolves, flawed and complicated and so brave, he became the best version of himself. Wah, I just love him! I can’t wait to see who they cast as Nikolai in the Netflix’s Shadow & Bone for season 2.
