Source: Fun story: I thought I had this one on my Kindle, so I requested it’s sequel from Netgalley. When my request was accepted, I thought, “Great, better start reading, then.” ONLY I DIDN’T ACTUALLY HAVE IT ON MY KINDLE! So, I kind of panic-bought a copy from Barnes and Noble, even thought the sequel doesn’t come out till December.

My Rating: ★★★★★

4 Comments I Love Seeing On My Blog Posts

For most bloggers, there’s one thing we can all agree on: we love when someone reads our posts and leaves a comment! It makes you feel good to know that someone went through the effort of actually reading what you wrote, and through your words, felt compelled to say something.

While I love when anyone takes the time to leave a note on my blog, there are some comments that just really stand out. If I get comments like these on any of my posts, I’ll usually be thinking about them for the rest of the day, and they’re the sorts of comments that pull me out of blogging slumps.

So, without any further ado, here are five comments I love seeing on my blog posts!

Your Favorite Music Tag

Hi there everyone! Hope you’re all having wonderful Wednesdays! The awesome Lauren @ Books Are Only the Beginning tagged me for the Your Favorite Music Tag. Obviously, I’ll post the tag rules in a second, but I want to add two rules of my own first. Rule #1: Under no circumstances do we judge Ryann for her musical tastes. I tried to tone it back a little for you guys, but some of this is still a little out there. Rule #2: If you love any of these songs, you have to let me know so I don’t feel like too much of a nerd!

Now that that’s out of the way, on to the tag!
