Hi everybody, and welcome to a new edition of Something Different Sunday, where I talk about something different than books!

Today, I want to talk about my favorite songs of 2018. I even put them in a handy top 20 list, counting down from 20 to number one, because I felt like it…

Now, a little disclaimer first. If you’ve been following my blog for a while you will know that A) I’ve always loved music and have a very wide taste in music, ranging from musicals and pop to heavy rock and metal and pretty much any genre you can imagine and B) I have however listened to little else but k-pop for the last year or two. This list below represents my tastes of 2018 and as such, has quite a lot of k-pop in it, but not only k-pop. I think it’s still a pretty varied list, though my love of rock feels pretty absent. So in 2019 I’m looking to expand a bit more again and actively try to discover some new rock, punk and metal artists to love, though it’s safe to say k-pop also has a permanent spot in my heart and playlist in the future.

Also, I tried not to have any double artists in this list (unless it’s a collaboration), because if I didn’t have this rule, there would be songs by like 3-4 artists because I’m just a little obsessive like that 🙂

Without further ado, here’s my top twenty 2018 songs!

October 2018: The Month So Many Amazing New Releases Came Out So Of Course I Mostly Re-Read Old Favorites & Listened To One Song On Repeat {Monthly Wrap Up}

October 2018

Hi everybody, and welcome to my October wrap up!

AND ALSO, HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!

Given my recent personal developments, I’ve still been a little M.I.A. this month, so again apologies to all my blogger friends! I’m hoping to catch up with all your blogs very, VERY soon. In the meantime, I’m hoping you’ll all have an amazing Halloween! Let me know how you’ll be spending today!

On the reading front not a whole lot of actual reading happened either, but there were some amazing releases this month and some of those I already started on, so that’s a definite plus. Musically, I continued my trend of listening to the same band over and over again and tv-wise… nothing at all happened.

So let’s just get into what I did do during the magical month of October!

June 2018: The Month of Geeky Cinderellas, Boys In Love & SO MUCH MUSIC {Monthly Wrap Up}

June 2018

Hi everybody, and welcome to my June wrap up!

June was a divided month for me. During the first half of the month I read a lot and I LOVED every book I read so much I even read one of them twice. During the second half of the month my reading kind of stopped (other than a few comics), but I watched some great tv and movies and listened to a lot of music. So yeah, divided but overall pretty great. Here’s what I’ve been up to:

My Favorite K-Pop Choreo’s {Something Different Sunday}

Favorite K-Pop Choreos

Hi everybody and welcome to a brand new Something Different Sunday, where I talk about something different than books 🙂

Today I’d like to talk about two things I love, namely dance and music. I’ve been in a dance club since I was a little kid and I’ve always loved music of all genres. But it was especially when I discovered the wonderful world of k-pop that those two aspects just seemed to come together in the most wonderful way. Because here is an entire world of music that puts a major focus on dance. There are intricate choreographies everywhere, a lot of k-pop idols are amazing dancers and best of all, they even post all of their choreo’s on the big old Youtube.

So basically, I am in heaven. And really, what better way to share the love than to write a blog post about some of my favourite choreo’s so far? Here we go!

Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Something Different Sunday! Last week, I talked about the songs that dominated my 2017 playlist and included a whole buch of songs. But if there’s one thing I’ll remember about 2017 musically, it’s my growing love and adoration for k-pop. So I figured I could do another music themed post, focusing solely on k-pop and more specifically, my favorite 2017 releases.

Now, I’m still a relatively new fan and there are sooo many bands and artists out there that I can’t even begin to get to know. So I’m always open to new k-pop recommendations! But in the meantime, here are mine:

June was pretty… eventful. I actually didn’t read a lot, I didn’t listen to a lot of music and I didn’t watch a lot of movies and tv. But some great things did happen to me and a lot of things changed. Things that have also led me to make a blogging announcement. I’ll explain everything in my post below, but first let’s talk about what I did read/listen to/watch in June!

Ten Songs For The K-Pop Newbie

Hi guys, hope you’re having a great Sunday!

First of all, what? how is this even related to books?

Well, it isn’t. In fact, this is the first installment in a new ‘series’ I’m starting on this blog, which is “Something Different Sunday”. Because, as much as I love books and everything to do with it, I also love a lot of other things. And while I’ve been in a slight blogging slump lately, I noticed that I did enjoy working on posts such as the Anything But Books Tag and my Top Fandoms. So I decided to open up my blog just a little bit to things other than books and like that, “Something Different Sunday” was born!

Basically, this is the time for me to talk about non-book related things I enjoy, such as music, movies, TV or just discuss or rant about general topics that are on my mind. I know not everybody’s here for that, but don’t worry, there will still be plenty of book-related stuff here as well!

But for today, let’s talk K-pop!
