Tag: Three-Day Lyrical Challenge (Take 2) | Day 3

TOP TEN TUESDAY_.png

You might remember me doing this three-day lyrical challenge a few weeks ago. (If not, here’s day 1, day 2, and day 3.) It was so hard to choose just three songs that I love, so I was very excited (as usual) when Jenna tagged me to do it again! ❤


The rules are simple:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Share one of your favorite song/lyrics one at a time for three days.
  3. Nominate three other bloggers each day.

I feel like I kind of have waves of obsession with Bastille. I’ll be really, really into them for a couple months and then I won’t listen to them for a while, and then I’ll have another month or so where they’re the only thing I listen to. I’m in one of those waves of obsession right now, and I’m really into Sleepsong this time!

Don’t talk to strangers
Oh, in the strangest dreams, walking by your side
It is the hole you impose upon your life
When you’re out, loneliness, it crawls up in the ground
It’s what you feel, but can’t articulate out loud
Oh you go to sleep on your own and you wake each day with your thoughts
And it scares you being alone
It’s a last resort
All you want is someone onto whom you can cling
Your mother warned of strangers and the dangers they may bring
Your dreams and memories are blurring into one
The scenes which hold the waking world slowly come undone
You’ll come undone
Oh, you go to sleep on your own,
And you wake each day with your thoughts
And it scares you being alone,
It’s a last resort
You go to sleep on your own
And you wake each day with your thoughts
And it scares you being alone, it’s a last resort
Oh
Don’t talk to strangers,
And don’t walk into danger.
Don’t talk to strangers,
And don’t walk into danger
Oh you go to sleep on your own,
And you wake each day with your thoughts
And it scares you being alone,
It’s a last resort
You go to sleep on your own,
And you wake each day with your thoughts
And it scares you being alone,
It’s a last resort
Don’t talk to strangers
Oh you go to sleep on your own,
And you wake each day with your thoughts
And it scares you being alone,
It’s a last resort

This time around, I’m tagging: Catherine 🌺 The Bookish Wormy 🌺 Teagan & Jess

As always, no pressure! Let me know if you love tags and I’ll add you to my list! Let me know if you hate tags and I’ll stop bothering you! And if I didn’t tag you and you think this looks like fun, please do it and link back to me so I can see your answers! ❤

Monthly Favorites: September 2018

I know I usually do my favorite YA, favorite NA, and favorite adult book each month, but I can’t really say that I read any good NA in September. Sometimes I replace NA with non-fiction, but I can’t say that I read any good non-fiction either. I guess for September, there are just two favorites.

Coincidentally, both of these books were recommended to me by Daniel. I really need to add a disclaimer on my blog that says something like, “If I actually liked a book, it was probably a recommendation from Daniel.” He hasn’t steered me wrong yet.

Best YA  Best Adult
172 Hours on the Moon The Name of the Wind
by Johan Harstad by Patrick Rothfuss
