This was my first OwlCrate box and I ordered it after it already came out (which is why this is posted so much later). I loved that it came with an additional book and I am so excited to read Sky in the Deep!

Song Book Tag

I saw this on RiverMoose-Reads and thought it would be a fun one!


MY JAM:

A SONG YOU MUST LISTEN TO EVERY TIME IT COMES ON, NO MATTER HOW OLD OR HOW MANY TIMES YOU’VE LISTENED TO IT

Honor by Atreyu – This is my favorite song of all time. For those of you who don’t know, I am a big rocker. I actually have a tattoo of some lyrics from this song on my ribs:

We’ll wear our scars
Like Medals of hope

A BOOK YOU’LL NEVER GET SICK OF

Pride and Prejudice


THROWBACK:

A SONG THAT REMINDS YOU OF THE CRINGIEST TIME OF YOUR LIFE

Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepsen – This reminds me of college. Used this as a pickup line on a dare to someone who happened to be a Green Bay Packers player. Also, there was a charity event going on and they played this literally a whole weekend, so I will always hate this song.

 A BOOK THAT ALSO REMINDS YOU OF THIS TIME (OR JUST SOMETHING YOU WOULDN’T LIKE AS MUCH IF YOU PICKED IT UP FOR THE FIRST TIME NOW)

Image result for the clique books

Middle school…


REPLAY:

A RECENT SONG YOU HAVE ON REPEAT RIGHT NOW

The Void by Parkway Drive

A RECENT FAVORITE BOOK

Onyx and Ivory


GETS ME:

THIS SONG IS ME

The Fighter by Gym Class Heroes ft. Ryan Tedder

THIS BOOK IS ME IN BOOK FORM

Victoria Vanishes This was a Mystery Book Discussion topic at my local library last month. And one thing that kept on being mentioned was that, at times, this novel was difficult to tell what was happening to who because the author made it scatter-brained and all over the place. I thought it was easy to understand! ha! But for those of you who know me, that is exactly how my brain works…a bunch of random thoughts not in any order 🙂

 

 


WUT:

WEIRD BUT I LIKE IT?

RX (Medicate) by Theory of a Deadman – I am not into drugs nor have never done them, and this is not my usual tune, but for whatever reason, I find it super catchy.

 A UNIQUE BOOK THAT STUCK OUT TO YOU FOR WHATEVER REASON

Our House


LET’S GO:

BEST PUMP UP SONG (FOR WORKOUTS OR JUST LIFE) –

Notorious by Adelitas Way – So I met the lead singer way back in the day before they were popular and appeared on the Bachelor.

A BOOK THAT INSPIRED YOU

La La Lovely


CHILL:

FAVORITE CHILL, RELAXING SONG

Good Times by All Time Low – So I NEVER liked this band growing up, but I really enjoy this song. It makes me happy.

A BOOK YOU’D CURL UP WITH AND READ ON A RAINY DAY

Harry Potter


ADDICTING:

GUILTY PLEASURE SONG – ONE THAT’S CATCHY AND ADDICTING BUT NOT A WHOLE LOT OF SUBSTANCE

Live for the Drop by Capital Kings – Another…not my typical genre, but it makes me want to dance.

GUILTY PLEASURE READ

The Selection
