Hello-Hello! It’s been a long time since I’ve posted one of these. The same old excuse: I had to pull out from the closet my superhero cape because of reality. “You gotta do what you gotta do,” they say. “Who are they,” you ask. Let’s call it pop culture.
The good news is that I had time for reading books. That means, I have a few reviews planned. Everything is on paper as of right now. So stay tuned for that!
Yes, I am old fashioned like that. I prefer to write ideas first then type them in word. My brain feels fully engaged that way.
As many of you know, it is the Nanowrimo season. A lot of authors and people I know use this opportunity to write their books. For more details, you can click on the word because I attached the link for the website.
This week’s song is for all the writers out there. Writing is difficult. It is time consuming and puts your brain in difficult situations such as writer’s block. And despite all that, You create new worlds for us, readers, to escape.
Thank you for your stories and keep doing a brilliant work!
Without further ado:
Ellie Goulding – Don’t Need NobodyListen it on repeat!

Hello-Hello! Today, I have another song for you. I am listening it for a while now.
Ed Sheeran is growing on me especially with this song – actually it started with the Shape of you (link to post) but moving on…
This song brings up past memories and love just like a good book that resonates with you does.
Apparently, fall is for memories. I often find myself thinking about good books I read and stayed with me. But, I also think about my past, people, events, and songs I listened during that particular year.
In my opinion, Photograph is a good song to contemplate about stories – from books or real life – that left a mark on you. Every story change you in a way. So that is why it is important to contemplate and learn from the past.
Every last minute is in the past now. 😛
I hope you are going to enjoy this song as much as I do; even though, it is on the slow side.
Without further ado…
Photograph – Ed Sheeran
Listen it on repeat!
Happy Music Madness!
Until next time, feel free to check out my latest posts HERE:
Hello-Hello, fellow readers! Fall is here. The weather is chilly and the leaves are changing colors, green for read, yellow or orange.After my break from books and blogging, I started to debate what my new song pick is going to be for Music Madness – aka Melody Obsession of the Week. If you read my previous posts regarding this section of my blog, you probably know that I like to give a meaning and a reason to the song I choose. Usually. So, after days of debating on songs I encountered during my leave of absence, I decided on Fetish by Selena Gomez.I am well aware of its innuendos and the sexy meaning behind the lyrics. However, one day when I was listening to the song next to my pile of book, it hit me. Its lyrics perfectly describe a reader’s – or at least my – relationship with books.No matter how long our reading slump or break from books is, we still find our way back to them, to reading. We crave the stories they contain within their covers. We want to go on adventures with the fellow characters, be the heroes, fight the villains or just be a reader. The smell of paper from a brand new book is the most sexy perfume we have ever desired. We love the art on the covers, dust jackets, and pages. And if the story of a book is THAT good, we obsessed over it. We devour its words over and over again through sleepless nights and even decades later. Just like a certain book friend of mine who read a certain series at least 17 times. (Heck, even I got convinced to read that series again. Good job, my friend! Your passion for those books really inspired me. ^^)So, you see, our relationship with books it is a bit sexual. We obsess. We crave. We want more. We want so much more from our beloved books that we even start writing our own stories. Books have a huge impact on their readers. They change us because we learn and gain knowledge from them. We, the readers, become imprinted by the books we read because their stories stay with us for the rest of our lives.And finally, without further ado…Selena Gomez – FetishListen it on repeat!Happy Music Madness!And, let me know in the comments section if you have a similar “relationship” with your books. Also, what do you think about this week’s song?

Hello-Hello! I am glad to be back again. And this time, I would like to announce that… I caught a contagious fever… the GAME OF THRONES fever. Finally, I let myself be brainwashed by the fandom and strangely… I don’t regret it.I had my mind set on this show for a long time. It was like an annoying thought that keeps bothering your subconscious when you try to fall asleep. Aaand, I did it! It took me almost 5 years – since I first heard of the show – to listen to my brain and the on growing hype.Do you know how had it is to stay away from spoilers?Let me tell you: H-A-R-D to the infinite power. Especially when social media and the internet is booming with spoilers left and right. (Although, I am still shocked to my bones when I hear them… So, that’s a plus, right?)Without further ado, I present to you…GAME OF THRONES – Opening ThemeHave fun getting it out of your pretty head. >]Play it on repeat and happy listening!See you in my next post and don’t forget to tell me in the comment section if you are a fan of this epic story (book and/or TV show). ^_^

Hello-Hello! Another day, another minute, another second… Time passes by and these week’s songs are a bit thematic, I might say. To quote one of my favorites comics of all time, W.i.t.c.h., “The end is a new beginning.” I am going through a break up with my… myself.(Ha! I’ve gotcha there, didn’t I? ;])Have you ever had a feeling that something is going to change in your life and that change is going to come from you? Well… That’s me right now. Sadly any change in one’s life, no matter how good it is, comes with side effects like an atrocious reading slump.I am searching and mostly waiting for an epic book to appear out of nowhere or my bookshelf and slay that… slump.Until then…Naruto Theme – The Raising Fighting SpiritAnne-Marie – Ciao AdiosSelena Gomez – Bad LiarMeghan Trainor – I Deserve BetterHappy Summer Everyone!Play it [them] on REPEAT!And before I go, I want to make an honorable mention to Marina Kaye – On My Own. You know… It matches the theme of the week. ^_^If you want to check out:1. My last book review click –> HERE2. My last music pick, click –> HERE3. Honorable song mention –> HERE
P.S.Due to my busy schedule around this time of the year, I will post irregularly and mostly short posts like this.See you in my next post! ^-^

Hello-Hello! Today I planned to post a book review – do not worry it’s in a rough draft form – but… Music it is. Ha-Ha-Ha! I am too energized for that. Gosh, I wished I had a pen and paper instead of a keyboard. Yes, I write faster than I type. A total shocker in these day and age – not really. ^-^So… my super-fast thinking brain is impairing my typing ability by shooting too many ideas at me in the same time.A shot of cold water for you, Brain!Brain: Cheers! Aaaah!(I literary just had a glass of clod water.)Music is about harmony and order 99.99% of the time. (That .01% is for the exception to the rule and the fact that I am not a music expert, thus, do not take my words for granted. Wink-Wink!) As I was saying, let’s take some time and think about Hydrogen and Oxygen. Two explosive gases came together to form one of the most harmless chemical substances of them all, water. Without you, water, life on Earth would not exist. Because of you, I can dance today to exhaustion on my favorite rhythm. You are my favorite drink despite the fact that you are a necessity of my existence.Special thanks to gif-Thor for showing support. (Yeah, I know it was about coffee but… Shhh!)Now, let’s dance and sing and liberate the music beast and without further ado… The song!I Luv it!Happy Dancing!And stay hydrated!

Hello-Hello! I am going to be direct with you. For weeks, I’ve been planning my next melody obsession post. I was planning this big inspirational post about humanity and humans and blah blah blah… Then it hit me. Or should I say… my ear drum? There is too much seriousness in the world. We know things are bad but better than they were a thousand years ago. We know we strive for equality, justice, and perfection. Although, we often forget the human nature. Humans are creatures of habit sooo change is not up our alley and I am citing the scientists from the world of psychology here. Sometimes is better to just enjoy the moment.Forget the bad.Eliminate those negative words and views of the world.AND. JUST. SMILE.With that comes the laughter.Yeah!Today I want to put a smile on your face to make you feel better even if it’s just for a fraction of a second.As you can see, I upgraded my post logo. I Photoshoped the original picture I created in Photoshop using the App Bamboo Paper. Now, it really looks like music madness.Brain: Wait! Wait a minute! WAIT-A-Minute! Aren’t people usually use Photoshop to Photoshop other pictures created in other apps?Me (the other side of the brain):Yes, and?Brain: Then… How? You… It doesn’t make any sense.Me: It doesn’t always have to be that way. >–Clap-Clap–< Keep up, Brain! Keep up!Brain: Now, you got me confused. Pretty picture thou!Me: Thank you! You help me make it.Brain: I know! >:] >B]So, without further ado or any interruption from my highly evolved cerebral cortex from the animal kingdom…Brain: I know what you did there…I present to you:MINIONSBrain: …And, it’s not fair.I dare you to sing along and try to take this tune out of your head after you listened to it!Mwahahahahaha!Happy listening!Play it on repeat. ^_^Brain: That’s just pure evilness.Me: I know. >]Bye! For real, now! Bye!Oh! And enjoy the music!P.S. If you are curious about my last song pick, feel free to check it out –>HERE<–.
