I was reading a book and this song was the favorite of the female character,  and now it’s a favorite of mine!

I Love this Life by LOCASH

I love my small town world,
I love a country girl
I love a Friday night
Man I love this life
The sound of an ol’ dirt road road
Rolling through mind
Man I love, man I love,
Man, I love this life

Enjoy!

Happy Monday!

I’m going against what I’ve done since I started participating in this meme, and I’m choosing a current tune that I absolutely LOVE and can’t get out of my head. I dare you not to tap your toe a bob your head along to this tune!!

Get Along by Kenny Chesney

Get along while we can
Always give love the upper hand
Paint a wall, learn to dance
Call your mom, buy a boat
Drink a beer, sing a song
Make a friend, can’t we all get along

Kenny Chesney has quickly turned into one of my favorite artists. I hope you enjoy this song as much as me!

Enjoy!

Happy Monday!

So I had a little too much fun Saturday night at my parish festival, listening to a GREAT band. Since I’m still feeling the pain of that, I thought this would be an appropriate tune for today:

It’s Five O’clock Somewhere by Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffett

Pour me somethin’ tall an’ strong
Make it a “Hurricane” before I go insane
It’s only half-past twelve but I don’t care
It’s five o’clock somewhere

Enjoy!

Happy Monday!

Biggest Disappointment

Hard to pick one, but I’ve read some real bad books from Netgalley. Certainly not knocking Netgalley, because I have also read some good books as well. The worst was probably Accidentally in Love. It was clearly translated from another language and it was done poorly.


Biggest surprise

Something So Unscripted by Natasha Madison. I absolutely loved this beautiful story.

Something So Unscripted Ebook

If I’m just doing new to me authors this year, then Danielle Norman. I’ve read two of her books this year.

Zack Morrow from Something So Unscripted. LOVED him. (see above)


Newest favorite character

Noely Clark from Three Blind Dates. God, that girl was funny.


 

Book that made you cry

Something So Unscripted made me cry hard. It’s such a beautiful book. You should read it.

Personal Delivery by Ainsley Booth. Just a sweet story with no drama.

Favorite book to film adaptation

I have seen nothing this year:(


 

Favorite post you have done this year

Not sure but I have found a new meme I really like called Music Monday. Coming up with a new song every week for that has been fun.


Most beautiful book you’ve brought this year

 

I don’t buy books, but the prettiest cover of a book I I’ve read is An Imperfect Heart by Amie Knight.

It’s Monday and I have a great song for you all today – I hope you like it as much as I do.

Springsteen by Eric Church

This song is about how a song brings you back to a memory – this happens to me all the time! Music is a huge part of my life and I will hear a song that reminds me of a scene in a movie or an event in my life and it always makes me smile.

When I think about you, I think about seventeen
I think about my old jeep
I think about the stars in the sky
Funny how a melody sounds like a memory
Like the soundtrack to a July Saturday night, Springsteen

Enjoy!

Happy Monday!

This week, I’m featuring a song that couldn’t be more appropriate for today – I’m Proud to be an American by Lee Greenwood. Today is Memorial Day in the US, a day we remember those who have given their life in war to protect our freedom.  This song makes you feel good (if you’re an American).

I’m proud to be an American, where at least I know I’m free

Happy Memorial Day.

Happy Monday!

This week, I’m featuring a song I think everyone can relate to – My Old Man by Zac Brown Band.

This song is about a father and son, but I feel it can certainly translate to girls as well. Everyone wants their dad’s approval and love. I dare you not to tear up during this song.

Now I’m a giant
Got a son of my own
He’s always trying
To go everywhere I go
Do the best I can to raise him up the right way
Hoping that he someday wants to be
Like his old man

I hope you like this song as much as I do. My 19-year old son actually introduced me to it and I honestly tear up every time I hear it.

Happy Monday!

Need your input – to Facebook or not to Facebook (for my blog page)

I have social media accounts for my blog on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. The one I’m the least active on is Facebook.

So my question is this – do you use Facebook to promote your blog? If so, how do you go about doing so and is it worth it? I definitely feel that I have found more book bloggers on Twitter, but I did get a nice comment from an author whose book I read on Facebook.

Anyway, I would love your thoughts.

Have a wonderful weekend.
