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!

May 2018: The Month of Finales, Sequels & Spin-Offs {Monthly Wrap Up}

May 2018

Hi everybody, and welcome to my May wrap up!

May was one of those months which seemed to last forever, but that’s only because I feel like I did so much. Every day has been a hustle from beginning to end, and I am both exhausted and happy. I’ve also been a terrible blogger since I am so behind on comments and bloghopping I may never catch up again, but I swear I have good reasons which I’ll explain later in this post. So please forgive me and catch up with what I did in May:

Ten Fandoms That Have Been Prominent In My Life {Top Ten Tuesday}

Hi guys, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday! Today is all about fandoms.

According to Wikipedia:
Fandom is a term used to refer to a subculture composed of fans characterized by a feeling of empathy and camaraderie with others who share a common interest.

Now, I admit I am a HUGE fangirl. The phrase “I don’t like, I OBSESS.” definitely applies to me. I just love feeling passionate about something I like, and sharing that with other fans who feel the same. It’s why I started blogging about books. It’s why I love going to live shows by my fave bands and artists. It’s why I love fan fiction and fan art.

That’s why I think I’m a member of a LOT of fandoms. I could never really limit it to just ten, so I decided to feature a few fandoms that are the ones I believe have made the most impact on my life so far. They are the ones I will think about first when I think about fandoms and the ones I believe other people may connect to me the most. Am I still active in all of them? Not necessarily. Do I love every single song by that band, or every episode of a show? Not necessarily. But do I still care deeply about them all and will I still keep excitedly rambling on about it when the opportunity arises? OH YES.

Also, I didn’t really feature the book fandom, because… duh. I think we can also assume that I am in the fandom for all of my all-time favorite books. So these favorites are mostly movies, tv and music. Let’s go!

Hosted by The Broke & The Bookish

Hi guys, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday. Today’s Top Ten is about all the books I wouldn’t mind Santa leaving under my tree. Though, honestly, these are not ALL the books… In fact, I actually have a Holiday wishlist of about 50 books. And basically nothing else. Clothes? Meh. Food? Close. But books? Yes, please! (Of course, just spending time with my loved ones is a pretty cool aspect about the holidays as well)

Anyway, these are the 10 books for which I’m crossing my fingers the hardest. These are the 10 books I am craving the most and would be super thrilled to see under my tree. In no particular order:
