30 Song Challenge: Song You Want To Play At Your Wedding

This, like most challenges like it, is technically suppose to be a 30 day challenge but I've decided to make it weekly because; sadly, I'll only be blogging for 8 more weeks (not counting the final blogoversary week).

Song 8: Song You Want to Play At Your Wedding

There might be a playlist filled with songs with this particular theme, and as I wrote that I had to stop and think if there really was.
There is.

It's probably why picking was a little bit harder.
But I went with a current favorite.

Song(s) of the Moment [2/20]

This is a feature I've started where I pick a song that represents the week, day or month; that fits with a moment I recently had. Or that's been on repeat.
Since very little happens to me on a weekly basis I only post every two weeks.

Best of: Me and The Princess Diaries - Repost

Like most readers I discovered Meg Cabot thanks to a certain Disney movie based on her book
The Princess Diaries.

Random story: my mom was brushing a little girl's hair and when the brush flew out of her hand I asked if she broke it, she responded by saying "Oh what like Princess Mia?"
She does pay attention!

Published July 17th 2012 by Toadhouse Books

Aine (pronounced "Aw-nee") believes herself to be a regular teenager in 1930s Alabama, but when a blue-eyed monster named Biblos attacks, she discovers that the reclusive woman raising her isn't really her grandmother and that she's been living inside a book for the past five years. With her blind brother, Spenser, she flees the pages of the novel she's called home, one terrifying step ahead of Biblos' black magic. Her only chance at survival lies in beating him to the three objects that he desires more than life.

As she undertakes her strange and dangerous odyssey, Aine must choose between a family she doesn't remember and her growing attraction to a mysterious young man named Gilgamesh. Only through treacherous adventures into The Time Machine, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, A Tale of Two Cities, and the epic Indian saga The Ramayana will she learn her true heritage and restore the balance of the worlds... if she can stay alive.

A Story of Sexual Obsession

I should never have agreed to it.

A woman will do a lot to keep her husband happy. But when my husband sells me to the highest bidder—billionaire, former navy SEAL, pride of Boston's business scene—I agree, not to keep him happy, but because it gives me the chance to finally escape. Escape my marriage, escape my debts, escape my life…

Josh Lane demands a steep price: my pride and my morals. But the truth is, I've never felt anything like what I feel for him. He brings color into my gray world. And his insistence that I submit to his commands—his depraved, filthy, amazing commands—only feeds my craving to be taken by him. Again. And again.

I should never have agreed to it, but I'm so glad I did.
