Manic Monday ~ March Madness!

www.dgbookblog.com:manic.monday.march.madness.insta

My Manic Mondays are intended to share little snippets about myself, and folks, here’s the deal…

March was yet another continuation of a mad reading binge that began for me back in February. No, I don’t sit around and read all day! As a busy wife and mother, who really has time for that??? Not this gal, but somehow I’ve managed to cram it all into my schedule.

Why is it that you either find yourself in a total reading slump or jumping obsessively from one book to the next? It’s so freaking unexpected when it happens, and it can actually be pretty frustrating on both ends of the spectrum!

Manic Monday ~ Reading, Rocking, & Roadtripping!

www.dgbookblog.red.rocks

My Manic Mondays are intended to share little snippets about myself, and although it’s pretty obvious that I love to read, I also have other obsessions, if you willincluding my love for concerts and travel…

I know I’ve mentioned before that I have a huge love for music. It reaches my soul in the most unexpected way, and I love how it can bring back nostalgic memories of my life experiences during their time of release. I’m more of an alternative kind of girl, with a huge love of the 90’s, but I’m really not picky and enjoy all genres of music. I also love to go to concerts. Regardless of my age, I am the biggest and quite possibly the cheesiest fangirl at shows, always collecting a t-shirt and singing at the top of my lungs. I really can’t seem to help myself!

Last year, my ‘Daisy Guy,’ brother, and I deemed it to be the ‘Year of the Concert’.  Continue reading

Just Another Manic Monday…

Stuck. On. Repeat.

Do you ever hear a song that just gets you right down to the core?

Where you can’t really explain why it affects you so deeply, but it just does?

‘Where’s My Love’ by SYML, has completely left me stuck on repeat, as is it continues to play in a loop over and over in my mind!

Manic? Maybe.

Every time I hear the song, I find myself cranking up the volume and crooning along. It cries out to me, and although I’m not in this particular situation at all, I can associate it with so many things, whether it be friends, lovers, or stories in books. I even researched the songwriter and the song, and believe me, I have little time for things like that. However, for some inexplicable reason, I cannot get away.

Twelve(ish?) Days ~ Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

www.dgbookblog.com:happy.2018

Did you know that the Twelve Days of Christmas officially start on Christmas Day and run until January 5th? Well, I did not and actually figured it out when I was going to do an epic wrap up of 2017 starting the twelve days before Christmas. You see, I have quite a few things that I wanted to share and cross off my ‘to-do’ list. It’s quite embarrassing really, but I have numerous lingering book reviews, tags, and random thoughts that have been staring at me from that damn ‘draft’ folder, just begging for some love and attention.

I wasn’t 100% sure if the ‘twelve days’ included Christmas Day or not, looked it up, and to my pleasant surprise, the Twelve Days of Christmas actually start on Christmas Day! However, I did not… Ha! Even the best laid plans go awry, BUT LOOK, I’ve still made my date to at least get one post in (with the Christmas photos that I took) and celebrate the new year!

… And speaking of resolutions, can anyone say quit overanalyzing everything and follow through? Yes, I’m working on it!

5 Star Reads & Oh No, Say It Ain’t So…It’s Almost Time for Game of Thrones!

www.dgbookblog.com.oh.no.gameofthrones

Oh my gosh! I mentioned on my Instagram awhile back that I have been on a bit of a hiatus. I have had a ridiculously hard time getting into my reading lately. I can’t decide what to read and then when I finally do, I don’t finish. I feel antsy, and it is driving me nuts! Have I fallen into the notorious ‘book slump?’ Am I sick? Who knows!

I actually think Game of Thrones is to blame as a culprit in my mystery illness! Continue reading
