Music Monday: Summer Is A Curse by The Faim

This is not your typical summer song though, but it's definitely catchy. For me it's about chances, about never giving up, about trying even though it might be fruitless. You can just never know what's going to happen in a day, or a week, or a month. Your life might change out of the blue and you'll be happy you held on.

The Lighthouse Keeper by Cynthia Ellingsen

Actually, this is a perfect summer read for those who like to read romance books, while lounging by a pool, drinking cocktails, and pointedly not acknowledging the world around them. The Lighthouse keeper blends romance, mystery, past and present loves together nicely. I recommend this book for everyone who looks for a nice light romance book, with a summer feel, and the vibrant life of a small town.

Fawkes by Nadine Brandes

Fawkes blends real historical events from 17th century England with fictitious characters and fantasy elements. The world building is seamless, London almost leaps off the pages. Nadine Brandes did her homework right and thoroughly researched the era and the events. The result is an intriguing, page turning story where you can't help but go through a wide range of emotions together with the characters.

Music Monday: PCH by Theory of a Deadman

But why I choose PCH is because it reminds me of California, of the nights when I stay awake just because I can, the nights I spent chatting with important people in my life. Taking a walk in the night watching the lights of the city. I always loved being awake at night, and wished I lived by water so I could just sit on a balcony watching the water and the stars, listening to music, writing, reading by a faint light, having a nice chat. Makes me wish to go on a vacation right now. Who's with me?

Monthly Wrap Up: June 2018

Well, June is over now, and it was another eventful month - both emotionally and otherwise. I attended concerts, read books, got awesome news. Find the details in my #MonthlyWrapUp post 🙂

Dissolution by C. J. Sansom

If you enjoy mystery, with a historical background, especially the Tudor era of England, then I strongly recommend giving a shot at Dissolution. It's gripping, makes you sit on the edge of your seat, even though it's not exactly fast paced. It will held your interest until the end, and you'll find yourself totally engrossed and waiting when you can continue reading on. Oh, and did I say it also adds a tiny twist to Anne Boleyn's story? Yeah, it has many, many layers you'll enjoy discovering. I also recommend listening to the audiobook, Steven Crossley did a really good job narrating it!

Interview with Barry Kerch from Shinedown

"I truly enjoy what I love, we all do. We love to do this, we love to play for the fans, we love to create music. It's what we do. And we still belong, we still like each other, we still ride the same bus together, we still get to dinner together. It's a family. And I enjoy playing on stage with those guys, we have a really good time doing it. I think if it wasn't fun anymore, we would have to stop, but it's still fun."
