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!

Songs That Keep Me Going – The 2017 Edition {Something Different Sunday}

Songs That Keep Me Going

Hi everybody, and welcome to a new edition of Something Different Sunday!

Today I’d like to talk a bit about music! As you may already know, music has always been an important part of my life. I’m someone who forms big emotional connections to certain songs and as such, music plays a really big part in keeping me motivated. It’s also something that always manages to get me through tough times. So I figured, why not talk about some of those songs? For me, sharing these songs is a way of opening up and sharing my thoughts and feelings with you, without getting too personal and whiny, but on the other hand, perhaps these songs can help someone else as well!

I figure this will be a recurring topic, so I’d like to start with songs I relate to a very specific time period, namely my personal experience with the first half of 2017.

March 2016: The Month Of Reading Slumps, Divide, The Death Note Musical, J-Dramas and… K-Pop? {Monthly Wrap Up}

March 2017

Hi and welcome to my March wrap up!

My March was… well, quite different from January and February readingwise. For the first two months of the year I was on a reading roll. I read an amazing amount of books in those months. But in March, it all came to a standstill and the reading slump hit hard! No particular reason, I just haven’t felt like reading at all. I also put myself on a book-buying ban for the whole month of March, so I could catch up on my TBR and the books already on my shelf. So… THAT WENT WELL.

If not reading, what have I been doing with my free time? Well, I’ve mostly been binge-watching Japanese drama series and anime. Yep. I am curious to see what April will bring. I do hope to get back to reading because I do miss it, but I just don’t want to force myself.

So anyway, here’s my complete March wrap up.
